I took a little roadtrip to nearby Cedar Rapids this weekend, and stumbled upon some of the best popcorn I’ve ever had. (It seems fitting to share my popcorn findings on a blog with popcorn in the title.) If you’re ever in the area, you absolutely need to check out Great American Popcorn Co.
Not only do they have very creative combinations, but they have the best vintage soda collection I’ve ever seen! I had to pick up a Cheerwine, something I could only ever find in North Carolina on my summer visits.
Now I’m set with snacks for another week of new and returning shows. And there’s a lot of them, so let’s jump right in…
Tonight: Bates Motel returns to A&E for its fourth season at 9/8c, followed by the series premiere of Damien at 10/9c. Pretty genius programming to put Norman Bates and Damien from The Omen back-to-back.
Tuesday: Of Kings and Prophets premieres on ABC at 10/9c. It’s essentially the biblical David & Goliath story, but the magazine ad has David all oiled up with perfect abs, so I know this one’s going to be a pass for me.
Wednesday: Underground, a new series about the Underground Railroad, premieres on WGN America at 10/9c. WGN America does well with historical dramas, so this could be another winner for the channel.
Friday: The new season of Bosch is available to stream on Amazon. The series is based on the Michael Connelly books, so if detective novels are your thing, you should enjoy this series. Another streaming show, Flaked, debuts on Netflix, starring Will Arnett.
Sunday: The series premiere of Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey airs on NBC at 8/7c, followed by the season premiere of The Carmichael Show at 9/8c. Carmichael wasn’t on my radar last season, but it’s getting lots of buzz this year, especially with an upcoming Bill Cosby-related episode. Also, if you’re an Agatha Christie fan, And Then There Were None, a Lifetime miniseries, debuts at 8/7c. I do love a good murder mystery, so I’m in.
