I hope your week was fab and you stayed cool! It has been a scorcher this week so I am looking forward to a cooler weekend. Dontcha’ love summer! I do because along with summer temps is summer tv! With most of our favorite tv shows e.g. Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, The Good Wife, and The Walking Dead filming for the fall it’s fun, to find new tv shows to watch and some old favorites. Today’s Faves on Friday, are my top tv picks for summer. Take a peek.
Suits – USA Network Wednesday @ 9
I loved this show from the jump! Legal shows always peek my interest and this one is so sleek and sexy. Set in New York, it centers on a law firm with a woman, Jessica Pearson(played by Gina Torres) at the helm, along with Harvey Specter (played by Gabriel Macht). The female characters are not just assistants to the men, they call the shots and play pivotal roles in every episode. On top of that, so dang stylish, those suits Jessica rocks and the dresses that Donna Paulsen (played by Sarah Rafferty) rocks are not your standard office wear, no boring blue suits! Now the men ain’t shabby either, Harvey Specter reminds me of Cary Grant, handsome, smart and dapper, but then can recite lines from all his favorite movies. So Cool! And let’s not forget Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams) who isn’t actually a lawyer but with his photographic memory, he plays one at the firm. Suits fast paced with interesting cases and unique office dynamics.
Complications – USA Network Thursday @ 9
This is kind of a medical show and kind of a crime show. The main character Dr. John Ellison (played by Jason O’Mara) saves the life of a boy involved in a drive by shooting, now the boy just happens to be the son of a drug kingpin, uh huh. The story follows how the Dr. has to keep this boy safe without being killed by gang members. Meanwhile, dealing with the death of his own daughter. I’m two episodes in and I’m hooked.
Mr. Robot – USA Network Wednesday @ 10
Now this show intrigued me because it centers around technology and how the main character Elliot Alderson (played by Rami Malek) is a hacker who hacks for good, if that makes sense. But then he’s solicited by a mysterious group to hack all the big companies that threaten our way of life – like a modern-day Robin Hood. It’s interesting. Elliot is kinda weird, but pulls you in and you know I’m rooting for the good guys to win.
Fear the Walking Dead – AMC Premiere TBD
This show has not aired yet, but I will be watching. It is the prequel for The Walking Dead, what happened before Rick and crew. This show features new characters and is set in Los Angeles, should be awesome and answer some questions like how did the virus start???
Big Brother 17 – CBS Sunday/Wednesday @ 8 and Thursday @ 9
17? Yep I have watched for 17 seasons and I can not let the summer go by without watching the shenanigans on this show. There’s always twists all season and the house-guests live in a house that is always so sick with extreme nautical decor, transparent floors, and cameras in every room, including the bathroom.
Are you watching these shows? Have a cool weekend!
