Nothing like a few shows a week to really make you appreciate every minute of TV you’re watching and crave them when their not on. Yeap, those are the joys of summer TV. Instead of getting a whole load of shows each week, June brings the opposite. Although, it makes up by being jam-packed with amazing storylines. It’s been so exciting!
There are still a lot of shows going on, but I don’t watch everything and out of the little I do watch, here are my picks to fill up your holidays:
Yes, I know it’s stupid – but millions of people out there are watching it as well. This season we have Emily Maynard – who was on The Bachelor before – and now she’s back to find love. I admire her quest, but the statistics don’t lie. 7 seasons of The Bachelorette and 15 seasons of The Bachelor later, only two couples have successfully managed to stay together. Don’t let that ruin it for you though, the hunky men make it so much more better.
The group dates are very odd this season, but as Chris Harrison says “there are no rules” – so yeah, go crazy Emily! She could tell them to wear skirts and ride on donkeys and they’d do it – because that actually happened. Besides that, there’s the usual drama, the awkward moments, the oh so swoon-worthy kisses, the beautiful cities, the guy who’s “not there for the right reasons”, and the man we all love to hate! Yup, package deal folks!
My top contenders this season are Sean and Arie. Sean because he’s really good-looking, his arms are ripped! He sounds like a really good guy, and Emily could not stop talking about how good his kisses were. Arie because the cameras are just showing us every single moment with them. Their so sweet and comfortable with each other. I possibly want Arie to win, but drama lies ahead in next week’s episode when Emily finds out they he used to date a producer on the show. (I don’t know anything other than what the previews have told me, but so what? He has a past, deal with it and pick him already!) Oh, and there’s Jef (with one F). People seem to like him, but I really don’t think he’s the right guy. We’ll see..
Brand new show from ABC Family and Amy Sherman-Palladino (creator of Gilmore Girls). Slight similarities between Bunheads and Gilmore Girls can of course be found, which is not a bad thing. Gilmore Girls was pretty successful.
Bunheads starts off with Michelle Simms, ballerina turns Las Vegas showgirl. Enter Hubbell Flowers (yes, that is his name), the guy who does not know when to quit. On a whim (and a lot of alcohol), he finally got the girl and brought her home to his mother – Fanny Flowers, a ballet teacher.
While Fanny and Michelle were trying to bond, Hubbell died (nice hook for a pilot, huh?). The show forgets where it started and throws us (and Michelle) into this seemingly boring town where she is left with a mother-in-law and her four star ballet students (a.k.a Bunheads).
I don’t know what the big picture is in this, and as I’m watching the show I am constantly wondering where they’re taking us and how we’re going to get there. 40 mins of the episode is all nice, but then at the last second it’s just a complete curveball and that’s how the story is progressing. I enjoy how our perspective is Michelle’s perspective. She is new to everything and so are we.
Pretty Little Liars
Season 3 is going great for me. New A, new ‘pretty little liars’. Yup, our favorite liars are finally sick and tired of this sh*t and their kicking ass and taking names to finally get down to the bottom of everything! That’s a show I can get on board with, I’ve been wanting this attitude all along. This way, we’re rewarded with lines like “bitch can see!” and “bitch crazy”, it’s fun.
For me, this season is more amusing than thrilling. The girls aren’t receiving that many text messages from ‘A’, and their all about confrontation now. Facing Jenna, Lucas, and Garrett head on now to help uncover ‘Team A’. New characters will surface and something bigger than grave digging/robbing is just over the horizon.
I save the best for last. This show makes Fridays so much better for me. Since White Collar hasn’t started yet (tune in July 10 for the season premiere), Suits is my guilty pleasure.
This season is more serious, higher stakes, and relationships are definitely being put to the test as Jessica “IS GOING TO WAR”. Daniel, as in DANIEL HARDMAN, the second name in the firms title is back. While Mike being a fraud still remains the core of this show, things are getting bigger and bigger each episode. Personal relationships are studied more and new alliances are being made everywhere. The show is epic.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and do sound off in the comments below!
