Can you guys believe that it’s June already? It seems like it was still January just a few weeks ago. Sigh.
The broadcast networks have wrapped up their shows for the season (I’ll miss you, superheroes!). But with those shows off the air, it gives me time to check out some new programs. Here are some of the shows that I hope to binge-watch this summer.
Note: The descriptions are from Amazon. Also, I believe that Bosch is only available through Amazon, but you can get the other shows on DVD or through a variety of TV/streaming services.
Angered by the truths behind his mother’s murder, LAPD detective Harry Bosch struggles to find integrity in an imperfect justice system. The killing of a homeless veteran, the suicide of a serial killing suspect, and the high-profile murder trial of a Hollywood director pit Bosch against ruthless opponents who all threaten to destroy him. BOSCH Season 3 promises to be the most compelling yet.
My thoughts: I really enjoyed the first two seasons of this show. I love a good cop show, and this one not only looks at various crimes, but it also focuses on the internal politics between various officers, departments, prosecutors, etc. The show is based on the books by Michael Connelly, and I’m hoping to read some of those this summer as well.
From the executive producers of Veronica Mars, iZOMBIE stars Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life … until she’s turned into a zombie. Now stuck between half-alive and undead, Liv transfers to the city morgue to reluctantly access the only thing that allows her to maintain her humanity — human brains. But there are side effects to Liv’s new diet. With each brain she consumes, she experiences flashes of the corpse’s memories — including, at times, clues as to how they were killed. Her boss, a brilliant but eccentric conspiracy theorist, encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with an eager, unproven homicide detective to help solve these murders … and quiet the voices in her head. iZOMBIE is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint. Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley and David Anders also star.
My thoughts: I’m not a zombie fan, but this looks like a really fun show. Plus, I like David Anders.
The Good Witch series follows the adventures of a mysteriously enchanting woman, who peaks the curiosity of her neighbors. Based on the “Good Witch” series of cable movies, Season One follows Cassie Nightingale and her young-teenage daughter Grace, who shares that same special intuition as her mom. When New York transplants move in next to the Grey House, they are immediately spellbound by the mother-daughter duo next door.
What about you guys? What shows are you planning to binge-watch this summer?
