What a difference a week makes! I already miss the Olympics, and I didn’t even watch a minute of the events or ceremonies. But I loved the way it soothed my over-taxed TiVo! While it’s great to get a lot of new things to watch, it’s also a bit overwhelming—it looks like my weekends are once again going to be dedicated to catching up on the prior 6 days of DVR backlog!
Tonight, Sundance TV kicks off the all-new original drama, The Red Road. When a college student disappears in the New Jersey Mountains, home of the Lenape Mountain Native American tribe, it doesn’t help the already-tense race relations in the area. In charge of the investigation is Sheriff Harold Jensen (Martin Henderson). His wife Jean (Julianne Nicholson, Boardwalk Empire), a recovering alcoholic, is over-protective of the couple’s two girls and doesn’t like the idea of her daughter dating a Native American. Meanwhile, Lenape Tribe member and ex-con Phillip Kopus (Jason Momoa, Game of Thrones) mysteriously returns to town to visit his father Jack (Tom Sizemore), a longtime drug dealer and criminal.
Sundance seems to be firing on all cylinders lately when it comes to these original/imported dramas, so I’m really interested to check out this new series. It’s got a great cast and an interesting premise. Plus, it’s also only 6 episodes, so it’s not a huge time commitment in this increasingly busy TV landscape!
On tonight’s episode, “Arise My Love, Shake Off This Dream,” police officer Harold Jenson tries to balance his increasingly stressful work duties while his home life slips into disarray; a shocking tragedy upends the lives of all involved.
See how the student’s disappearance affects all those involved tonight on Sundance at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, Parks and Recreation, Hollywood Game Night, Parenthood, Chopped Canada, King of the Nerds, Vikings, and Portlandia.
