From Arrested Development to The Great Gatsby, we count down the movies and TV shows to get excited about this year.
TV show to look forward to in 2013: Game of Thrones
When you talk to any true Game of Thrones nerd—myself included, I devoured the books—you will notice one common denominator: the fervent reverie by which everyone refers to the third installment of the epic series. As soon as the topic of conversation turns to Book Three, most George R.R. Martin fans will wipe a single tear from their eye, put their hand over their heart, and take a moment of silence to just remember it. It’s that good. Two more months until the season premiere then we can all talk about it in exhaustive detail. Hurray!
TV show to look forward to in 2013: Arrested Development Admittedly, the new season of cult-hit Arrested Development has the potential to break a lot of hearts. Here’s why: It’s either going to be hilarious, and capture all of the Bluth family magic—or it’s going to be awful, like the Sex and the City movies (Please, please don’t let it be awful!) Season 4 is set to appear on Netflix in May.
TV show to look forward to in 2013: Veep
Here’s the good news—if you haven’t watched HBO’s political comedy Veep, there’s still plenty of time to catch up on season 1 before it’s sophomore season debuts in April. We’re not sure why this quirky little show hasn’t gotten more love from the critics—it has all the elements of success: A borderline incompetent main character—the hilarious Julia Louis Dreyfus, as the Vice President of the United States, who stumbles from one PR disaster to the next—not to mention a talented cast that includes Tony Hale [Arrested Development’s Buster Bluth], and, for all you '90s kids out there, Anna Chlumsky, who probably made you cry your eyes out in My Girl back in the day.
