The return of Burn Notice, Dark Blue, True Blood and Mad Men


I really enjoy watching TV shows. Unfortunately, Ugly Betty, 24, Lost and Heroes are no more. Not to mention Bryan Fuller’s whimsical Pushing Daisies! So what is left to watch this Summer? Luckily, several of my favorite shows. Burn Notice is on my top list, I already wrote about the show: Burn Notice Vs Leverage? I’d better get burned!. If I don’t like Leverage that much, Dark Blue is definitely among my favorite shows. But my two favorites are True Blood and Mad Men. Totally different stories and times but each one knows how to entertain. Where do Sookie super powers come from? Will Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce find prosperity eventually? There is also the new season of Entourage; I couldn’t not mention Vincent, his flick, Ari…

I am eager to watch Dexter‘s new season (Dexter and The Shield: bad is good) as well as Curb Your Enthusiasm: Pretty, pretty, pretty good! and The Big Bang Theory: Am I really that kind of Nerd?. When I wrote Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Nip/Tuck, House M.D… Addicted!, most of the shows I mentioned were still airing; since then Lost, Battlestar Galactica and Nip/Tuck are no more. But my top five list won’t be complete without Sons of Anarchyfrom Kurt Sutter, writer/producer of The Shield. If you enjoyed watching The Shield as much as I did, then you have to see Sons of Anarchy. I hope next season will be as good as the previous ones.

If my preference in movies goes to films noir and science-fiction, I am too often disappointed by the movies I see. I could mention a dozen, critically and publicly acclaimed films, I had to fight with myself to watch until the end. TV shows are often better than films because you don’t spend minutes on details, action is there, almost every second. There are movies you have to take time to watch to fully appreciate every moment, they are very rare. Most of the movies I have been watching lately are just filling the story with meaningless (action) scenes and the ending is easy to guess; a total spoil and a waste of time. No wonder why more and more people prefer watching TV shows in their living room rather than going to theaters…

Anyway. If you have enough money, you can get a walk on role in some of these TV shows. Charity Buzz is listing their Hottest Summer Auctions you would love to bid on.
