Ah, Franklin & Bash, not Tango & Cash. Thanks!
The three shows that I can think of (mostly thanks to reminders in this thread of their existence) that I'm looking forward to:
Franklin & Bash
Drop Dead Diva
I'm going to watch that show Swagger & Sash, about the burly lawyer and effeminate cop.
I just noticed this weekend that the new season starts May 24th.
Breaking Bad and Falling Skies. I also set up a SP for the Tour De France. Love the racing and the scenery.
I used to get excited about the USA network shows. But they have just gotten too formulaic for me.
Episodes (just started on the 11th in the UK and I'm downloading now instead of waiting on Showtime to air it in July, so it's kind of a summer show)
So You Think You Can Dance
and to a lesser extent
I also plan to check out Daniel Gillies new show starting in June, Saving Hope
I had no idea it was airing in the UK! Going to download now. Easily the best new show from last summer!!
As of right now just Burn Notice and of course Futurama.
Yeah, I'm gonna tape this coming season (S6?) waiting for DVDs to get to NetFlix so I can watch the last season (S5?)
Franklin and Bash and Falling Skies.
Sometimes an interesting reality show pops up. One season there was one following the trail of the hunt for Dr. Livingstone in Africa.
I'm practically counting the days at this point.
I just watched half of the first episode of Common Law and deleted my season pass. The one cop walks outside and shoots 3 rounds into an inflatable dude thingie. Behind the inflatable thing is an open street with cars driving by. Easy potential to kill innocent people. The guy says he shot it because he hates those things. Just too stupid for me.
I really liked Suits.
It dealt with an aspect of the law you don't see much on TV, and I thought it was really well done.
Besides the USA channel shows and Alphas among others, I have 14 episodes of Castle to catch up on!
Suits (June 14)
Royal Pains (June 6)
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the biggie: The Newsroom on HBO, starting June 24.
I'm also watching Episodes on the BBC. If you subscribe to a VPN, or even use a freebie one like Expat Shield, then you can use the BBC iPlayer on your computer. Tons and tons of current Brit shows with no commercials, with many past episodes available.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio (you can see lists of available shows but you can't watch unless you're doing the VPN trick)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network Explains VPN. The simple explanation is that when I'm using Witopia any site I connect to thinks I'm located in London rather than my actual ISP in the US. It's also useful for avoiding RIAA and MPAA lawsuits.
I use and recommend Witopia for a paid VPN. https://www.witopia.net/ It's not expensive, around $5-$6 per month, and you can find discount coupon codes on the net.
The only summer series I make it a point to watch are America's Got Talent and Futurama. I still have to get through my DVDs of The Sopranos (right now I'm at the end of Season 2, and don't worry about spoiling it as I already know about the ending).
Of course, there's the Olympics, but who knows how much of that I'll end up watching online as the events I want to see aren't being broadcast.
Also, technically the Emmys are a "summer" program, as the fall season usually starts the next day, although this year's Emmys are on 9/23, so I expect some shows to start a week earlier. (Fox has even started shows on the first week in September on occasion; The Simpsons in 1994, as Fox wanted new episodes to pair with its new NFL coverage, and both Glee and So You Think You Can Dance in 2009, in order to get them completed (the first 13, anyway, for Glee) by December with postseason baseball pre-emptions.)
Since the Bachelorette is on now.. is there not going to be a Bachelor Pad this year?
Not like I really care, but it's what I thought of when I thought of summer viewing..
