Always Be Watching is curated by Dan Barrett - today from the home office in Tokyo.
The TV event of the year happened this week - Game of Thrones. Even if you don’t watch the show, your TV has been impacted by it. For its 6-week run, Game of Thrones will not only rate remarkably well, but also it takes up so much of the cultural conversation that it makes it difficult to get any attention for other shows. New shows and even shows that traditionally schedule a return for April have delayed 2019 starts.
Which isn’t to say that TV has been completely quiet this week. There were a few new and returning shows this week - it’s not exactly a cream of the crop TV week though. So… brace yourself.
Also, please note that there is no Always Be Watching podcast this week. But, it will be back by this time next week.
