It was sad for a month or two with Lost being over, but Summer not only brings the sunshine, Perfect Polished Toes and Sangria, but also spectacular fun tv to indulge in!
Some shows I'm looking forward to.
True Blood. HBO, Sunday June 14th 9pm. click here.
I'm not a sci fi nerd. I usually like Romantic Comedies, good shows like The Wire, TLC's A Baby Story, any show about House Renovation or Cake Renovation, Reality Television.. but vampires? It just wasn't my scene. Until True Blood. This show completely caught me off guard and I was hooked after the first 15 minutes of the first episode. Yes, I know I should watch Twilight, but already I feel like its comparing the original 90210 to Sweet Valley High (which I think I was the only one who watched that show when the girl from Clueless was on it) You still have time to catch up on Season 1 by Sunday.. but it depends. how dedicated are you? (besides this girl who I respect for her taste in tv - cos its basically the same as mine!)
Fact: Sookie and her Vampire Beau date in real life. Just had to include that! FTW
Mad Men. AMC, Sunday August 16th 10pm. click here.
Oh to be a Chauvinistic Pig back in the '60s. Don Draper is bootyliscious and he can talk about the Kodak Carousel as much as he wants and I'd buy it. I love this show because I love the entire cast and the storylines with it. A chick who hides her pregnancy cos she had sexytime with a coworker in his office? Scandalous. The amount of scotch they drink before 9am would knock me out for about 3 days straight. Ron Burgandy meets Newsies meets Sopranos. This show is a treat.
Royal Pains. USA, Thursdays 10pm. click here.
New show and the Pilot episode got the hubs attention enough for him to program our DVR to always record it. That's pretty impressive because while I'll watch anything- he's a picky tv snob. The guy from Road Trip is in it too! Long story short- city doctor gets blacklisted out of town and ends up hanging around Rich 'Cidiots' (the locals word for City Folks who invade the Hamptons every weekend). The Jokes are fun, the Hamptons scenery is gorh-jas, and each member in the cast has beautiful eyes. That's hard to come by! Or maybe it was our HD TV. Either way, I'd definitely check it out.
Shows that will not be showing up this summer? WB's Privileged did NOT get renewed. Sad Face. I dont want to admit how much I loved that show. Also- Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia doesn't come back until September- so that will 'Fall' under the Automn shows. yucka yucka yucka.
Shows I've stopped watching: The Bachelorette (sorry but its a bore fest this season. very cute guys though- makes great content for The Soup), I'm a Celebrity Get Me Outta Here (speidi should stick to scripted television and full makeup), SYTYCD - I gave that show about 10 minutes before I was like.. what the what? but that's also because I hate dancing, and clubs where people dance. I'm more of an 'Elaine' type of dancer.
What shows are you excited to watch over the summer?
