Summer TV: Shows to Watch While Waiting for Fall P1

I think I’ve mentioned on this blog my great great dislike for the Summer TV Season. Though, admittedly, there are some good shows airing now, I get really bummed about shows that just ended and the wait for new shows to begin.

I usually take this time to catch up on some shows I overlooked in the last season. It’s the season for marathons and I’d like to share with you all my pics for shows to binge-watch while you (we) wait for fall.

Orphan Black

I was a bit hesitant to watch this show in the beginning. Reading the synopsis did not excite any neurons. I thought it was going to be some campy show about clones. Boy.Was.I.Wrong.

Because the other official posters were scary >.< Tatiana Maslany as Sarah/Alison/Cosima/Helena etc.

How to explain this show? Hmm…At the beginning we meet Sarah (and her fabulous gay bff Felix) as she watches a woman who looks exactly like her commit suicide. Before you jump to the conclusion that Ringer has just been renewed, we quickly find out that Sarah has not one, but two, three, four, seven “twins”/clones. I don’t want to give too much away so I’ll stop there. Just trust me about this show, the premise might sound campy but the storylines are addicting. AND! Tatiana Maslany is sooo great at portraying multiple characters. She even gets away with playing a clone pretending to be another clone. Amazing amazing amazing. Go. Just go and watch it.

In the Flesh

From clones to zombies. Here’s another trope-defying show that is a must-watch for all zombie fans. It stars the adorable Luke Newberry as Kieren an ex-zombie who just wants to fit in.

In this series adaptation of the popular supernatural trope, zombies are slowly being cured. They are now called Partially Deceased Syndrome (PDS) sufferers and are being incorporated into society once again. It’s a gripping show about how society deals with discrimination (and a wee bit about how a community deals with ex-convicts, using zombies as a symbolism for people being rehabilitated into society after being incarcerated — at least that’s how I saw it.) Wow, things just got deep. XD Anyway, it’s a great show to watch but it tends to get heavy. Pack some tissues and make sure no one can see you ugly-cry. With only three episodes in the entire first season, you’ll surely devour it quickly. Fair warning though, season two doesn’t come out for awhile. If you’re the type of person who won’t be able to stand a long wait until the next season, better hold off until the series 2 premiere date gets closer.

My Fall TV Schedule

As always, I’m extremely excited for fall. I live in the Philippines, so it’s not the weather that excites me…it’s the TV Shows! Most of the shows I follow are from the US so I am a slave to their TV schedules.

Here’s how my September-February will look like in terms of shows I’ll be downloading. Now, time slots don’t really affect me but I wanted to have some semblance of order in my TV table.

Shows in bold are new shows premiering in Fall 2013. As for the others, they’re returning shows in their latest seasons. This table may evolve as changes in schedules come out over the next few months. Feel free to come back and see any changes. I’ll be keeping this post as updated as possible.

Downloader, Brace Yourself…Fall is Coming

We are in the final few weeks of the Summer TV Season and may I just say, I can’t wait for it to end. Not that there aren’t any good shows this season (I did manage to find some OK shows), but they are few and not as stellar as the ones I’m used to watching. I even opted to download some older shows just so I wouldn’t get bored out of my skull. Alright, I’m exaggerating a bit. I just can’t wait for the Fall TV Season!

Aside from all the returning shows (Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Greys Anatomy, and so much more), I’m really excited about the new shows coming this Fall! Here’s a rundown of some of the new shows I’m excited to see:

Made in Jersey (CBS)

The Goodwin Games (FOX)

How to Live with Your Parents (ABC)

The Mindy Project (FOX)

The New Normal (NBC)

Partners (CBS)

1600 Penn (Maybe) (NBC)

Add all these to the returning shows I’m so excited to see, I’m sure my downloader would be working overtime. Time, to clear my HD and EHD for some major data.
