Coming Soon to a TV Near You

As a follow-up to Kimberly’s blog about summer movies, I thought I’d blog this week about summer TV.

When I was a kid, it seemed like there was only one TV season.  The new shows came on in the fall and lasted until the next year.  Today, television programs change all the time.  New series debut in the fall, then some midseason shows come on in the winter or early spring.  And then there are the summer series.

The majority of the most popular summer series are shown on cable.  They are programs that can get us through the long hot summer, satisfying our need for new comedy and drama as we wait for our other favorites to return in the fall.

If you’re new to some of the shows returning this summer (a few have already started), you can catch up with previous seasons.  Check out the library collection for these great series.

Breaking Bad
Burn Notice
The Closer
Covert Affairs
Drop Dead Diva
Falling Skies
Pretty Little Liars
Rizzoli & Isles
True Blood
White Collar


So when the weather gets too hot outside, just stay indoors and relax with some really cool summer series.

Added note: After reading this blog, a friend reminded me of one of her favorite summer series that's returning soon: Warehouse 13If anyone else thinks of a series that I missed, please let me know.  Thanks!
