XFINITY Binge-Watching Guide: Summer TV > Summer Movies

July 29, 2016

Back in the dark days before the Internet, a local movie theater in West Lawn, PA would host an evening where they’d show all of the summer’s movie trailers. It was amazing. We’d buy popcorn and soda and just sit there and marvel at the exciting summer we had in front of us.

This summer? I don’t think we’d marvel so much.

Fortunately, the TV world has picked up the slack. So, grab your own popcorn and soda and enjoy some of these top picks…

Note: Yeah, these aren’t all Summer TV shows, but they’re still worth your time.

GameofThrones Power
 1. –“Game of Thrones”: For as long as I write this column, I will suggest you watch “Game of Thrones.” I love it that much.
 2. – “Power”: “Power” has become the hottest show this summer. People are loving it.
TheSImpsons RayDonovan
  3. – “The Simpsons” – Wow, this list is really dramatic. How about every episode of “The Simpsons” ever as a palate cleanser? 
 4. – “Ray Donovan”Liev Schreiber’s Emmy nomination is very well deserved. He owns this enthralling drama.
OrphanBlack AnimalKingdom

 

  5. – “Orphan Black”: Four season of amazing, mind-bending twists and turns await you if you decide to jump into this BBC America hit.  6. – “Animal Kingdom”: Ellen Barkin is great in TNT’s breakout summer drama.

  • I went on three first dates in three consecutive nights when I was younger. It was a nightmare. So much stress. Being ‘The Bachelorette’ is my personal nightmare.

Random Thoughts…

  • I’m liking FOX’s fall baseball show “Pitch.” I’m not sure how you stretch it out into a series, but I’m in.
  • FOX’s “Lethal Weapon” reboot series? Hard pass.
  • Brie Larson is the lead in “Captain Marvel”? Works for me. After “Room,” I’d see Brie Larson in anything.

I intend on spending my weekend indoors, getting better acquainted with my air conditioning, and catching up on some of these top titles…

GameofThrones Entourage
 1. –“Game of Thrones”Are you already caught up on this epic series? Watch it again. I picked up so much when I did a rewatch.
 2. – “Entourage”: I always compare “Ballers” to “Entourage,” but I hadn’t seen an episode of “Entourage” recently. So, with “Ballers” coming back, I wanted to see if the comparison was valid. I watching the pilot and got sucked in. I’m in the middle of Season 3 right now.
Power RayDonovan
   3. – “Power”: The season premiere was awesome. If you’ve never seen this show, you can plow through the first two season quickly.
 4. – “Ray Donovan”: Showtime’s biggest summer title seems to be in the middle of another hot season.

Random Thoughts…

  • I forgot how good Jon Stewart was at what he used to do on “The Daily Show” until I saw him take over “The Late Show” last night.
  • “Bones” fans: If you have not watched the finale yet, stop reading this and watch it.
  • Apparently the “Divergent” finale is going straight to TV. Can’t say I’m surprised. I never hear anyone talking about it. I had to get my niece to explain it to me.
