Who says that summer TV is boring? I know I sure don’t because, while there may not be the volume of shows on during the summer like there is during the normal TV viewing season (which typically runs from September to May), there are still a lot of great TV shows to enjoy when you’re not out in the sun enjoying the weather.
It started off last week with the return of Warehouse 13 and Eureka and the debut of Haven on Syfy. Warehouse 13 kicked off right where the season one cliffhanger left viewers, well, hanging, bringing back the hilarious antics of Claudia and Artie and the cunning of Pete and Myka. Then there was the return of Eureka with a time-travel episode that has set the show on a whole new level that will be incredibly thrilling to watch unfold. And, the debut of Haven did not disappoint – at least for me – as it was entertaining and a delight to watch. I look forward to the rest of season of these shows.
The Glades debuted on Sunday night but I still have yet to watch the episode simply because there is SO much good TV to watch on Sunday nights that I have to record a number of the shows on that night just to be able to keep pace. I am looking forward to watching that episode later this week.
Last night, The Closer returned to TNT followed by the premiere of the new drama Rizzoli & Isles, which stars Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS). It was great to see Brenda and her team back in action and I look forward to getting to know Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles as the weeks progress.
Tonight will find White Collar back for a second season on the USA Network followed by the debut of Covert Affairs, starring Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly), Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty), Anne Dudek (House), Kari Matchett (Invasion) and Peter Gallagher (The O.C.). I am anticipating the hours until I can watch these new episodes.
And, later in the month will be the return of the BBC series Being Human, which airs on BBC America here in the States. I saw a trailer for the new season over the past weekend and it looks like it will be amazing and spine-tingling. I cannot wait for the return of this sharp drama.
Of course, there are all the other shows that returned last month, too, like Burn Notice, Drop Dead Diva, Royal Pains, True Blood and Leverage.
Plus, I have discovered some wonderful new shows including Pretty Little Liars, The Gates, Rookie Blue and Huge. So much good TV so little time; but it’s SO worth it.
