Eliot said that April was the cruelest month, but for a TV fan, the end of May might be even worse. Most of our favorite shows have had their season finales (Community, Parks and Rec, Fringe, Revenge) while others are coming up only in a few weeks (Mad Men, Game of Thrones).
I love longer days, and spending time outside but I like having something good to watch every once and a while as well. In that respect, summer looms on the horizon, a vast black hole of programming. I think Raked is really excited for the return of Falling Skies; I like the show, but I’m not quite as high on it. I think I can honestly say that I don’t have any thing on my radar as a must-watch this summer, and that makes me a little sad. I’ll spend some time watching back episodes of The Wire, but I do wish there was something new during the hot months that could draw me in.
What about you? What summer series (new or old) will you be watching between now and September?
