Summer Viewing List

Every year I start off the summer with grand plans. "I am going to do an entire X-Files series re-watch!" I will proclaim around the beginning of June. And sure, things get off to a good start, but then I get distracted by something shiny and all my high hopes get dashed against the pavement of reality.

But this year will be different! Sure, it's the summer which means a shocking lack of original programming (though the networks are getting better at this, you have to admit), but I am going to do my best to keep my expectations realistic. So without further adieu, I present to you "Maggie Cats' Summer Viewing List."

New Shows

True Blood

Breaking Pointe

So You Think You Can Dance



Craft Wars (what? I like crafts, so sue me).

Old Shows 

Gossip Girl, Season 5

Fringe, Season 5 (both GG and Fringe were cut from my schedule for time. There's only so many hours in the day, you know?)

Battlestar Galactica Season 1 rewatch

Peep Show (a BBC comedy, recommended by a friend)

....and I might give Pretty Little Liars a look-see since I have been hearing from various sources that it is teen soapy fun, and therefore the PERFECT summer show.

Oh, and I just realized I still have the whole Hatfields & McCoys mini-series sitting on my DVR. Son of a bitch. I kind of can't stand Bill Paxton or Kevin Costner, but I have heard good things so I am going to give it a try. 

What do you guys have any on your summer viewing list?

I started watching The West Wing (never seen it before). I think Psych is coming back on this summer.

I might finally get around to watching True Blood now that I know Chris Meloni is going to be on it.

Heh, my Aunt said the same thing about True Blood because of Christopher Meloni. She loves him. I've seen some pics of him as a vampire, but I remain skeptical he can pull it off. Though I never saw him in Oz where he apparently played a notorious BAMF so what do I know.

I am finally catching up on last two seasons of 24 before I tackle Game of Thrones season 2 and I am definitely looking forward to a new Working show (hay Headroom).
