What summer shows will you be watching? I’m definitely watching Mad Men and Psych, but will also be checking out The Gates and Pretty Little Liars. The show I’ve been eagerly anticipating is an old one that I’ve missed so much – Futurama! My favorite of the cartoons-for-adults genre (The Simpsons, Family Guy, Venture Bros., etc) is back after being prematurely canceled and then briefly resurrected for TV movies. Now it’s back to form with a series order from Comedy Central and hopefully can live up to the standard it set the first time around.
What summer shows will you be watching? Or do you chose to spend your summers catching up on good TV you missed the first time around (Six Feet Under, The Wire, Sopranos, etc)?
