Is your DVR ready for a big binge? It’s time to talk summer shows! Normally, we’d be a bit bummed that spring finales have finished or that our favorite show is winding down, but honestly, this summer has some of the best TV so far this year! We’ve picked our top eight. Which ones do you plan on adding to your watchlist?

 

  1. Master of None, Netflix — May 12

We loved the first season of Netflix’s comedy Master of None, so we’re pumped season 2 is back and ready to go. Aziz Ansari stars as, well, himself — a struggling actor from New York. Last season saw some major upheaval in both his professional and love life, and season 2 picks up from where it leaves with Ansari’s character traveling Italy in his signature style.

 

  1. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix — May 19

Netflix really rules the summer lineup with shows that we love to binge on. We make no exception for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s hilarious, lovable, and completely uplifting. Titus, Kimmy’s roommate, and musical star wannabe, is one of the best best-friend characters on TV. We can’t wait to see what season three does!

 

  1. The Bachelorette, ABC — May 22

If it’s the summer, it’s time for another season of romance, lust, and love. We’re hooked and we don’t care who knows it. It’s a guilty pleasure that seems to get better with time. And the drama always has us coming back for more.

 

  1. The Great British Baking Show, PBS — June 16

From the name, it sounds like a bore. But this show has hooked us! Half the time we have zero idea what they are baking, but it all looks so yummy and delicious. And unlike US cooking shows, there’s no yelling, no backstabbing, no major prize either! It’s just funny, educational, and relaxing show to veg out to.

 

  1. Hooten and the Lady, CW — July 13

We have mainly stuck to old shows returning, but there are a few promising shows we have our eyes on. One is CW’s attempt at a treasure-hunting romance series featuring an aristocrat and jerky adventurer. While it may seem cliche, we like the idea of traveling the world for love and artifacts.

 

  1. Game of Thrones, HBO — July 16

The mega-hit of cable TV is galloping towards its endgame. Game of Thrones has been building tension for years, and we’re promised some big payoffs in the first half of its last season, airing this summer. If you haven’t already seen it, you’ve got a few months to catch up to the dark, gory, mystifying show.

 

  1. The Story of Diana, ABC — August 9

You could say that we’re a bit obsessed with British royalty. That’s why we’ve marked the ABC miniseries documentary on our calendar. It explores the life and death of Princess Diana with new footage and interviews. While it won’t give us answers, it will allow us to soak up her grace, beauty, and tragedy a little while longer.

 

  1. The Tick, Amazon — August 25

If you love superhero shows, you’ll most likely have mixed feelings about Amazon’s The Tick. It’s not exactly action and saving the world. The main character is a regular old accountant with zero superpowers who decides to take down the real world villains that rule his town. But you will love the awkward dialogue and outrageous sequences. It’s part humor and part ode to the summer blockbusters we love.

7 Binge-Worthy Shows You Should Be Watching this Fall

Fall TV 2016

Who doesn’t love the fall — the beautiful colors, the changing weather, the awesome fashion… and the return to awesome TV shows! The start of autumn is when networks roll out their best and most promising new shows and orders returns of new seasons for fan favorites. If you’ve got your popcorn and remote ready, we’ve got a list of the 7 best binge-worthy shows you should be watching this fall.

1. Westworld

Imagine a fantasy world filled with robots programmed to let you live out your wildest fantasies and even experience a time far removed from now. Would you be interested? Of course you would! But what happens when the robots, who are programmed with specific characteristics and story lines, start to misbehave? Check out this reboot of a semi-popular sci-fi movie from the ‘80s with an HBO twist.

2. The Good Place

Eleanor was one of the lucky people who got into heaven… except she shouldn’t have. Set in a quirky community full of amazing people, Eleanor must lie and cheat to make sure she doesn’t end up in “The Bad Place.” With Frozen and Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell leading the cast, you know this is full of cuteness.

3. This Is Us

We won’t spoil this one for you if you haven’t caught the first episode, so we’ll just give you a teaser. The show follows a group of people connected by one particular thing: their birthdays. Heartwarming, funny, and full of twists and turns, this show is perfect if you binged on shows like Parenthood where the heart of the story is the relationship element.

4. Pitch

Want to stand up and cheer? Or just a huge fan of baseball or sports dramas? Pitch is perfect for you. Based on the concept of a young woman being called up from the minor leagues to play in the majors, you’ll love how they take on this “woman in a man’s field” concept. Of course, there’s loads of drama and social issues addressed as well making it worth coming back for more.

5. The Exorcist

The fall is totally about spooks and thrills. That’s why shows like Walking Dead draw in huge numbers week after week. The Exorcist isn’t any different and is perfect for those who are in need of a big scare to get them through the week. If you’re a huge fan of the movie, you’ll love how they play off the cult classic.

6. Timeless

If you had access to a time machine, would you go back and change the past? Would you be tempted to use it to get what you want, even if it meant destroying the present in the process? Timeless features an unknown criminal messing with major historical events and a group of would-be heroes stepping in to keep our country as it is.

7. Designated Survivor

Did you know that there are real designated survivors — a person picked to stay back while world and country leaders gather in case of an attack? Kiefer Sutherland stars as the man who stays back and watches in horror as his world collapses, and then he is put in charge of keeping the country together. What unfolds is the man who shouldn’t be president forced to lead.

Summer Suggestions: Shows We’re Tuning Into

summer tv shows

After a long spring semester, it’s time to play catch-up… on our favorite television shows that is!

With summer TV just about to air and programs like Netflix and Hulu replaying everything we missed in the fall, winter, and spring, we’ve got our popcorn ready and our watch-list full. Need some suggestions? Here’s the top 9 summer television shows we’re binging on.

1. Game of Thrones, HBO

Oh, Game of Thrones. We love you for several reasons. One, you always keep us guessing (even if we have read the books). And two, you make bloody violence and war-time drama actually enjoyable. Fans of this show have been tuning in for four seasons now, but it’s not too late to catch up to the current season as long as you’ve got an HBO subscription.

2. The Mindy Project, Hulu

Mindy Kaling is infectious, bubbly, naive, and brilliant all in one show. The Mindy Project is the perfect indulgence if you love shows that empower ladies while also just being hilarious. You’ll dig her getting into all kinds of professional and dating problems as she tries to come to terms with adulthood.

3. Orange is the New Black, Netflix

If marathoning through shows is your thing, OitNB is the perfect show for you. Set in a women’s prison, you follow Piper and a host of diverse prisoners as they try to just survive. The last three seasons have been almost perfect mixes of comedy and drama while also being socially insightful. And if you loved them, you won’t be able to wait for season 4, which airs in June!

4. Battlebots, ABC

Okay, Battlebots certainly isn’t GOT or OitNB in terms of quality stories or incredible acting. But there’s something about robots destroying robots and nerds going head to head with impressive engineering that hooks you. Wind down, decompress, and cheer for your underdog robot.

5. Outlander, Starz

We’re all for period pieces, especially if there’s a whole bunch of romance thrown into the mix. And that’s why we can’t help but love Outlander. Based on series of books by the same name, you’ll get a great dose of attractive Scottish accents (and actors) along with enthralling drama to keep you interested.

6. The Bachelorette, ABC

Let’s add this one (and all other forms of Bachelor spinoffs) to our guilty pleasure list. This reality show has been on forever, so you most likely already know the jist of one bachelorette being seduced by several extremely handsome and worthy suitors. We’d give our rose to this show any day for just being fun.

7. Pretty Little Liars, Freeform

Quick! It’s time to play catch up before Pretty Little Liars comes back for its 7th season. Part mystery mixed with comedy (and a ton of fashion), these girls make murder look amazingly fun, especially when there are so many twists to keep you coming back for more.

8. Hell on Wheels, AMC

When you’d rather spend your summer on something a little bit more intelligent, skip the reality shows or teen murder dramas and go straight to AMC. Hell on Wheels is a railroad western drama that focuses on a former soldier’s revenge. It’s now in its 5th season so there’s lots to watch for as the show picks up steam.

9. America’s Got Talent, NBC

We cannot forget about our favorite talent show. America’s Got Talent takes the best, the boldest, and often the weirdest Americans and puts them on stage to be judged. There’s so many star-making and awe-inspiring moments that you’ll probably spend all summer watching clips of this show on social media anyways!
