Update on Summer TV

It may be just me but Cable TV is loosing its appeal! Many of the shows are 2nd or 3rd season carry overs and once you learn the characters and situations you’re left with deciding if you really want to spend your time with the TV or not! Great books are calling us to read them!

BUT while we are waiting for The Blacklist and Downtown Abbey and a few others here are some updates on shows that I’ve visited this summer:

*  *  *  *  *     1* low…………..5* really worth your time

1. Wayward Pines…………very good! It started off slow and confusing and I almost gave up on it but went back in on episode 5 and by then it had gotten a lot more interesting. Season 1 has ended but I plan on watching season 2 because in a post apocalyptic world the story is an interesting possibility! ****

2. PROOF……………most excellent!  This is a program about finding out what happens to us after we die! The writing and acting are superb and the story lines each week are intriguing! Whether or not we will ever know what happens to us after we die, the prospects make for entertaining TV watching! *****

3. The SF Channel………..Dominion, Defiance, Dark Matter, Killjoys,  ***All  4 shows are o.k. if you like that kind of storyline. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t! It is worth a look to find out though.  Olympus…………no stars at all! Silly, poorly filmed and horrible acting! Costumes are horrendous and the sets are so laughable, just don’t go there!

4. Falling Skies……..ends this season…………4 long drawn out worn out themes! If I here the word “skitters” one more time, you know what I mean. IT should have been a one season wonder! *

5. The Last Ship… very interesting storyline…………100 % realistic? No, but it is fun! Could it really happen? Yes, possibly……………at least the storylines are interesting enough to keep you coming back week after week. ***

6. A Place To Call Home……….PBS……..from Australia and a really good show it is! Take a trip to Australia and the morals and attitudes of the 1930’s. Family situations, matriarchs, strong women, weak men, mean men and women, one or two saints will bring you back  for season 2 which starts next winter (DVD of season 2 is out now……….I’m getting it and not waiting!) *****

The Crimson Field……PBS……………a look at the horrors of war……………what wars do to people…………..hard to watch but very well done! Too much for me but if you like blood and pain and heartache………dive right into it! **

7. I’m waiting for True Detectives Season 2 and Penny Dreadful Season 2 and Blacklist…………….and STAR WARS!!!!!!! And The Hunger Games Catching Fire part 2 (or whatever they are calling it)……..Jurassic Park, the new one!

That’s my story………..and I’m stick’n to it!

What’s yours”

  1. Good Afternoon and I am in agreement but I do love watching Falling Skies. LOL I am so looking forward to some of our favorites coming back along with the new ones that I can not wait to check out including: Arthur and George, Indian Summers, Home Fires, Limitless, The Players and Blindspot. I am so thrilled to have the DVR Box otherwise I would have to pick and choose and I want them all. Hahaha Still enjoying Cedar Cove and the relationships of the people. Finally got 2/10 of an inch of rain so Kent is still watering. I think cactus will be in our future. Have a great day and love to you both!!! Lil Sis
