You have already seen the first segment of our prestigious awards gala and, finally, today -so you can talk it over Christmas Eve dinner- we, or, in this case, the renown television critic The Homecoming Queen, bring you the second part. And the Telethinking Award goes to …
Vulture, AV Club, Time Magazine… all our main competitors are publishing these days lists and lists of the best shows this year on television and we are not going to be any less. Without any more delay we are honored to present to you, dear readers, the first edition of the Telethinking Awards!
Once upon a time in HBO quality TV was not all about mythological detectives and killers, greedy kings, leftovers or gangsters. A positive -but always critic- time when smiling and experiencing joy was allowed. Enlightened is not just a story about capitalism and corporations, it is also about happiness: because yes, even in this “beautiful, upsetting world” we need to enjoy life.
As hard as I try, I still can not understand how someone can see a good entertainment in The Walking Dead, probably the most stupid, nonsensical hour of television for the last 5 years. I seriously doubt that 14 million Americans tune in every week for the same reasons as I do: the laughs and the wish of one of the characters getting chopped in a very, very explicit way.
