On TV Tonight, Thursday, 8/21/14: The Simpsons Marathon, Defiance and More

TV Equals Summer 2014 Thursday

Our Picks

The Simpsons – 10am FXX
We have all dreamed of a reality where we could watch every episode of The Simpsons ever made in order and that day (err…two weeks) has come. Starting at 10am with the Christmas special that started it all America’s first animated family is taking over FXX and guaranteeing a steep decrease in the productivity of Americans everywhere.

Defiance – 8pm Syfy
Two Defiance episodes for the price of one tonight, and the first outing borrows from one of my sentimental Lost favorites, “Moth,” from season one in which Charlie gets to be a hero during a cave in. All roads lead back to Lost eventually.

Rookie Blue – 9pm ABC
The season five finale is queuing up an explosive two hours sure to remind Rookie Blue fans why this cop soap is so compelling. I am holding out hope for Sam getting through this bomb in the parking garage adventure unscathed since he was shot in the season four finale. He gets to sit out the trauma this time, right?
