Hello, summer binge-watching …

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.

Bosch — Season 3 — Amazon

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.

iZombie — Season 1 — DVD

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 — Season 1 — DVD

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.

My thoughts: I love When Calls the Heart on the Hallmark Channel, and I thought I would check out this series too.

What about you guys? What shows are you planning to binge-watch this summer?

    I agree with you on Bosch; good show. I have CBS All Access, so I plan to binge watch some of that on Saturdays and Sundays. I love British TV and will probably binge watch some of that as well.

    I really like iZombie, although I have yet to catch up on this current season, lol. But it’s a lot of fun! The show I am currently rewatching is Charmed, I love it! And I am also going to rewatch Supernatural soon here… all 12 seasons (maybe), lol. Supernatural is my most favorite TV show EVER so I do a rewatch pretty much every summer. I’m hoping to watch something new (to me) as well, though I don’t know what yet…

      I liked Charmed a lot. I might have to go back and rewatch some episodes. I have never watched Supernatural, although I keep meaning to check it out. Enjoy your rewatch!

    Since we are behind on the DC shows, we are binge watching second season of Supergirl and we are almost done with Season 2 of Arrow. (We’re caught up on DC Legends and Flash). We also enjoy America’s Got Talent and American Ninja Warrior, which are new in the summer.

    • Jennifer Estep says:

      Season 2 of Arrow is really good. Maybe the best season of the show. I like to watch American Ninja Warrior too. It’s fun to see the obstacles they come up with every year.

    My favorite summer show is So You Think You Can Dance. I’m also watching Jennifer Lopez’s World of Dance. I just binged watch Wynonna Earp season one so I could watch the new season. Also love Stichers, but you would have to find someplace to watch previous seasons. They are not on Netflix.
