2013 Summer TV Shows

Graceland

This has been an interesting summer with a lot of different shows as well as the usual shows. Suits is just over the top good, Devious was an interesting introduction and so is Graceland. And I never get tired of Franklin & Bash, I just wish there were more episodes to enjoy.

DeviousMaids

  • Falling Skies – Haven’t finished it, but its getting intense
  • Franklin & Bash – Loving the show as usual, but not more Epic then the last season
  • Suits – This season is Epic, its ridiculous how good its gotten
  • Devious Maids – This turned out to be a surprise of a show, the maids know everything
  • Royal Pains – This show is just as good as usual, I do enjoy Dr Lawson
  • The Newsroom – Haven’t started it yet, but really looking forward to it.
  • Graceland – A pretty interesting Interagency Law Enforcement Team in Malibu, a complex action show
  • Under the Dome – Halfway through it, still confused as to the dome but very interesting to see whats happening with people
  • Rookie Blue – This season isn’t as good as the previous one
  • Ray Donovan – Crazy show, just the first two episodes and its over the top

Chicago Fire - Season 1

Show Are Back On January

Its about a month since all the shows went into hibernation for the month of December but things have kicked off again. Its nice to see a few funny episodes inbetween all the serious shows I have been watching. Some shows I’m going to leave to pile up a bit before catching up with them, and the rest I will enjoy like Go On, Guys With Kids, Chicago Fire, Person Of interest, The Big Bang Theory, too many good shows out there. The odd one though in this mix is The Transporter, new show but it feels weird that Jason Statham isn’t in it, like he got replaced with a crappy double, but I will give this show a chance.

Just Started Up

  • Chicago Fire
  • Don’t Trust The Bitch in Apartment 23
  • Elementary
  • Go On
  • Guys With Kids
  • The Mentalist
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Last Man Standing
  • Person Of Interest
  • Two & A Half Men
  • Whitney

One New Show:

The Hidden Comedy – The League

TheLeague1

Fantasy Football is at the core of The League, a comedy that explores how the online sports obsession affects marriages, friendships, families, and completely shuts down Sundays. The comedy will be partially improvised, with the team from Curb Your Enthusiasm behind it.

TheLeague2

I am very surprised I didn’t see or hear about this show before, its running on its fourth season, and if you like anything about American Football then you have to watch this show. Honestly if you know even a little bit about sports, you have to watch this show, these guys are so ridiculous and over the top competitive then you can’t help but laugh your head off. I finished season 1 in two days, and probably season 2 in couple more, when ever I feel like a light comedy with a bunch of guys this is it. If you haven’t seen it then you are miss out because these guys are nuts about football. They do some crazy funny shit!

TheLeague3

Summer TV Wrap Up


Newsroom

The unexpected Aaron Sorkin TV Show which caused some drama, a controversial drama about a news studio and its people, with the main news anchor as the main character. This is one very intense show that pulls you in from the first few episodes, I ended up waiting at the edge from week to week to watch the show. It takes shot at every political party, trying to put the truth out and ruffling a lot of feathers and it just keeps getting better and better. For a summer show its amazing, I can’t believe that it is only 10 episodes and we are going to have to wait until next summer to watch where this is going.

Suits

The second season turned out to be even more intense then the first one, and honestly I didn’t think that they could do better. Harvey was in a battle for his life in some of these cases as well as within the firm. Mike as usual was the genius that helped piece things together with him. The characters get more intertwined and it was a hell of a season with every episode worth watching. i just can’t get enough of Mike as a smart ass, its fun seeing his genius play out in the show. If you haven’t seen Suits then you are really missing out.

Franklin & Bash

These guys just do it again, keeping things funny and interesting in Enfeld & Daniels. This time around they take a more direct roll within the firm and things get a little more crazy with Franklin’s father tries to take over the firm. The season finale was funny, these guys make for a fantastic combination and Pendy there assistant is just hilarious. Its annoying that we have to wait so long for this comedy to come back

Falling Skies

Season 2 just took one hell of a twist, they made it through, they got deeper into the fight against the aliens. The 2nd Mass start hitting them where it hurts, they make progress to find their base or the new capital. The story gets more complex and even more interesting then last season with the introduction of the overlords, you get to see some intense battles new alien weapons are introduced and they are disgusting. Just as they take the fit to them, the season finale was one hell of a cliffhanger, I can’t wait for next season luckily the show was renewed for another season from 2nd episode of season 2

TV Shows Recap

Revenge

This show turned out to be a lot more twisted then I even expected and I loved it. Trying to get Revenge for her father who were framed by this family, and things just keep taking deeper turns, you never really know whats happening. Amanda Clark/Emily is one tough cold hearted woman who will do what is needed, and show finally just goes over the top.

Touch

I’m a huge fan of Kiefer Sutherland since 24, and I still refer to him as Jack Bauer, so I was waiting to see this show about his amazing son and Kiefer Sutherland as the father. It starts out a bit slow, trying to figure out what his son is trying to say, while he is a genius who can see all the fabrics of events of cause and effect across the world, its amazing. The show gets even better as it progressed, I can’t wait for season two to start in October.

Newsroom

It’s Aaron Sorkin’s new Drama about a Newscast and the channel they are working for. To sum it up simply its a very dramatic amazing show and I love how they tie the current events that have taken place to how the show is developing. If you haven’t seen it then you should, its just that good.

Continuum

The Scifi show about a cop from the future chasing criminals into the past who want to bring down teh corporate world. Its starts off as something simple and then the true relationships between the characters of 2012 and how they relate to the people in 2077 fall together. The show just kept getting better, and if you are into Science Fiction shows then this is a must to watch.

Summer TV Shows

Since Ramadan started I know a lot of people are going nuts over all the types of shows that are airing and some of them are really good but in my case I look for something that fits me and right now the Ramathan shows are not to my taste. But its summer and there are a lot of good shows out there at the moment.

  • Newsroom – I’m loving this show, dramatic, action packed, and totally unexpected
  • Suits – This season is even better then the last
  • Eureka – Back for season 5 and in full swing
  • Continuum – Turned out to be much better then I expected, for the Sci Fi crowd, and I’m loving the future tech and the way the story is going
  • Anger Management – The Charlie Sheen comedy come back, good show
  • Falling Skies – Getting very intense this season and I love it
  • White Collar – Neal Caffery is back and this story takes a major twist you can’t wait for the next episode
  • Rookie Blue – The Canadian Cop Show, every episode is worth the wait
  • NYC 22 – I’m really enjoying this cop show, nice hip hop touch, I think Jay-Z did the Intro and Outro of this show
  • Franklin & Bash – Loving the comedy duo but they are starting to dig deeper into the other characters and its great, I hope this show keeps going
  • Melissa & Joey – Funny just as usual, on Season 2 and counting

On The Back Burner – Shows I’m Just Piling Up But Not Watching

  • Burn Notice – Didn’t watch Season 5 yet, need to catch up
  • Weeds – Season 6, really to catch up with the Botwin family
  • Breaking Bad – I still haven’t watched it
  • True Blood – Been a little while, got too dramatic over their relationships so I put it on hold

New Comedy Shows

Men At Work

Four buddies working in a magazine who go through the some ridiculous adventures. Together, the four help each other navigate work, friendship and women. This is one of the surprises of this season, the show is done and its only 10 episodes long but every episode was funnier then the other, these were very different characters in hilarious situations. Two guys are familiar actors but the other two are new to me, but they have a great dynamic, and this feels like the group of guy friends that you have so guys can very much relate to it, and women can have an outlook as to what guys think. If you are looking for a light hearted comedy then this is it.

Anger Management

Charlie Sheen is back and I have to say that he is back to his normal self but with a twist. I didn’t know what to expect from his new show but old ball player working as a psychiatrist with a bunch nut jobs is a pretty good start to his comedy. Four episodes in and I think the show is very worth watching and it will be one of the funny shows of this season. The best part are the small shots they take at 2 & A Half Men, some parts are just funny shots and some are hilarious, but they are all very subtle, and I like where its going.

The Exes

A comedy about three divorced men sharing an apartment across the hall from their female divorce attorney, who is also their landlord. This show jumps right into it, you figure out the dynamic of the group and it gets funnier every episode, each one of them is more colorful then the other and you know most of them from other shows. Kristen Johnson from 3rd Rock From The Sun, and she is the hilarious lawyer in this show, Wayne Knight is one of the divorced guys in the show, you would know him from Seinfeld or “Newman”, thats all I know him as, Newman, then there is also Donal Faison or Dr Turk from Scrubs, he is just as funny in this show, maybe a bit too gimmicky but I’m liking him in this show too.

TV Comedies Of This Season

There were a lot of new comedies this season with some more interesting then the others. This is the basic round up for all the shows that I have enjoyed and stars for the ones that surpassed my expectations. The usual ones are below and the two surprises for me is that Community might be coming offline when this season was even better then the 2nd season, and Two & A Half Men is much better with Ashton Kutcher.
