Summer has always been a great time to catch up on all the TV you missed last season. Now in the day of streaming services, it’s become a great time to catch up on all the shows you should have watched years ago, as well as current television. Here are 3 shows I’m currently digging.
- Daredevil. I’ve long been a Marvel girl, starting around age 6. However, Daredevil was never a character I really read up on. I am really regretting it now with the fantastic rendering of Daredevil Netflix has cooked up. I’ve not seen Charlie Cox in anything except Stardust, so this is a really fascinating departure for me. I’m loving the cast, and I’m fascinated by the darkness they’ve put in the series. Those who are more up on Daredevil lore than I can feel free to educate me on the level of darkness of the character in the comics. I’m only 3 episodes in, so I’ll let you know what I think when I finish the series.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So, I’m a bad nerd and
never got around to watching Buffy when I was growing up. One of my best friends has been harassing me to watch Buffy since Buffy was ON THE AIR. I adore Joss Whedon, so I’m a bit on the embarrassed side to say I’ve never watched his first really successful work. I’m about halfway through the third season, and so far, I’ve found the dialogue witty, the characters interesting, and enjoyed the flashback to 90s fashion. I’m intrigued to see where the series goes. I’d also love to know if you all think I should watch Angel as well.
- Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D. Ryan and I got the discs
for Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D. via Netflix, and finished it just before they put it on their streaming service. Irony, right? Unfortunately, this was also several weeks into the second season’s TV run and we were unable to catch up without getting spoiled. I was extremely excited to read on Clark Gregg’s twitter a couple weeks ago that the second season of S. H. I. E. L. D. would be making its appearance on Netflix June 11! I’m going to start a S. H. I. E. L. D. rewatch today! Now, if only they’ll add Agent Carter as well….
What are you watching? I’d love some more summer TV recommendations.
