What’cha Watchin’: The 4/4 Droughtlander is OVER Edition

0

I got a lot of great and varied suggestions to include this week, so I have to hand it to my fellow What’cha Reading staffers (and editor) for a varied column (and a giant watch list on my DVR). I’m just going to dive right in.

On TV:

What'cha Watchin': The 4/4 Droughtlander is OVER Edition

Outlander (Saturday 4/4 at 9/8c on Starz). If you didn’t know about this after the media blitz that Starz has put out, I don’t know what to do with you. Finally, “Droughtlander” is over, just in time for Easter. The Rat Queens are singing hosanna, and because I can’t resist one more Easter pun, I have a sneaking suspicion that by the end of this episode, Jamie will have risen. He will have risen, indeed. *waggles eyebrows suggestively*

Call the Midwife (Sunday 4/5 at 8/7c on PBS) Roe is on vacation this week (i.e., spending her evenings in a hotel room with numerous family members who all want control of the TV) and is watching past seasons via the Netflix app—isn’t technology great? I am watching in real time and pining for Sunday to catch Season 4 of one of my favorite British shows. Rat Queens unite.

Star vs. The Forces of Evil (Monday 4/6 at 8/7c on Disney XD) Editor Chuck spends most of his time watching what his kids want to (I’m sure all the parents out there can relate), and this show has captured his daughter’s imagination but sounds like fun for adults, too—yay, Disney for coming up with things that don’t make us want to kill ourselves as we’re forced to watch them repeatedly! Princess Star Butterfly’s parents have sent her to earth from another dimension to keep her out of trouble, but of course she’s not going to let that stop her.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Tuesday 4/7 at 9/8c on ABC) is knocking it out of the park with every episode lately. Which is the real S.H.I.E.L.D.? Where did the Inhuman take Skye? Can May help Fitz and Simmons? And perhaps most importantly, is the bar where Coulson is sipping an umbrella-less drink in Tahiti (not T.A.H.I.T.I.)? But seriously, for a season that wobbled a little at the outset, I feel like S.H.I.E.L.D. has been coming on gangbusters since the mid-season finale. I hope it keeps up the momentum, because this is some fun TV to watch.

iZombie (Tuesday 4/7 at 9/8c on CW) has the What’cha Reading staff a little divided at the moment: Steven has the show on his must-see list, while Nancy is on the fence, saying “It just feels like it’s trying too hard to be Veronica Mars. Which I adored of course but I need this to find its own personality.” Anyone else want to weigh in on this one?

Daredevil hits Netflix on Friday, and the majority of the Geek Guys on staff (Steven, Chuck, and Ed) have all declared their intentions to binge watch. Steven is the most dedicated to this binge watching and has planned ahead so he’ll be through the entire series by mid-afternoon on Friday. I’m interested to see how Netflix handles this show, as it’s a pretty good forecaster for the style and approach they’ll take to AKA Jessica Jones, their next superhero show (and let’s face it, the one Nancy and I are really waiting for—she loves the comics and I love me some David Tennant…whatever it takes).

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (HBO Go) I don’t have HBO and hadn’t heard of this, but I think I am the only What’cha Reading staff member in this position given how everyone chimed in when Juan mentioned what a good film it is. Documentarian Alex Gibney interviews former members of the Church of Scientology to shine some light on a very secretive religion. Sounds absolutely fascinating…I’m going to have to get a friend with HBO let me come over and watch.

Got something you think we should be watching? Let us know in the comments!

About Author

Julie Hegner has been descending the geek rabbit hole since she watched her first episode of Star Trek at age eight. A longtime fan of Trek, Who, X-Files, and the Whedonverse, it was only a matter of time until hanging out with other geek girls and repeatedly watching Tom Hiddleston led her to the awesomeness of comics. She takes a special joy in reading about ladies who kick ass, but in general anything with a good storyline floats her boat. You can tweet @julz91 on Twitter.
