As finales air and television conglomerates promote its fall schedules, there’s still the void of summer to fill with catching up on shows I had stopped watching for one reason or another. I’ll also be giving into friends’ requests in checking out their new favorites as well. After writing down all the shows involved for my summer 2013 watch-fest before my fall favorites (and newbies) return, I realized I have A LOT of catching up to do. This list almost makes me want to break out Excel and make a schedule.
On the plate for this summer ::
GBB aka Good Christian BItches – What can I say? I’m nostalgic for Dallas.
Parenthood – I’m halfway through season 4 and want to see if Ray Romano steps up to the romantic plate opposite Lauren Graham. I’m also curious to see if Christina having cancer makes her a sympathetic character.
Glee – I just need to finish out the season and then call it quits on this show.
SNL – The final three episodes I hear are worth the watch.
Felicity – As an ardent JJ Abrams fan, I feel it necessary to my fandom to watch his first network television endeavor.
Go On – My brother loves this show and I love my brother…and Matthew Perry. Also, it’s been cancelled so one season can’t hurt.
Community – Does this need an explanation?
Modern Family – Playing catchup. Lily is my favorite.
Happy Endings – I really hope ABC doesn’t cancel this show. It’s the new Friends without saying it’s the new Friends because if you say it’s the new Friends you’ll jinx it…I’m currently knocking on wood.
Spy – OMG, if you haven’t watched this British comedy yet you’re definitely missing out. Besides, an American version is currently in development and won’t be as awesome.
Suburgatory – Oh the hilarity. I’m also little miffed that some of the episodes already expired off of my HuluPlus account.
Pretty Little Liars – Both of my roommates are hooked and I’m tired of being left out of “PLL” based conversations.
House of Cards – The first two episodes have been quite epic. 11 more episodes to go!
Newsroom – Sorkin, I love you.
Girls – I have a love/hate and one-sided relationship with Girls. I might as well get season 2 over with.
Game of Thrones – The fact that my access to HBO GO is currently on “pause” is causing much stress.
ER – As part of my 2013 New Year’s Resolution I vowed to watch my favorite show from the very beginning. Currently on season 2 and rooting for Doug + Carol. Retrospect is quite fun!
Let me know what more I should be adding to this list! Are Chicago Fire, Revolution and Nashville worth checking out? Happy TV watching!
