    The Summer TV season is almost upon us.

    I'm waiting for:
    4400
    Stargate Atlantis
    Nip/Tuck season 2
    Foyle's War season 2

    I've written an article on some of the shows coming out this summer on US TV (more shows may be added to the article later):

    So what TV shows, TV movies, and TV mini-series will you watch this summer (even if it is some reality show)?

    Be Seeing you,
    David Blackwell

    The Amazing Race - I hate having to wait until July for this. And only getting one a year now. It's the best unscripted show on TV.

    The Drew Carey Show - I missed the last season entirely, but always liked the show.

    The 4400 - Ira Behr is running it and bringing some of his DS9 colleagues in.

    Monk and Mystery! - I love the procedurals.

    Not sure about Fox's stuff. I'll probably watch Quintuplets for Andy Richter, and give The Jury and maybe North Shore a shot; I seem to recall the latter having some talent I like.

    Put me down for Nip/Tuck.
    There's not much else on, that I know of, other than Reality Programs and I wont be watching those.
    DVD catch up is what I plan to do.

    440 sounds good as well as Salem's Lot.

    Some of those colleagues are Francis Ford Coppola and Rene Echevarria... Just as an FYI... [​IMG]

    ...and I also think Season 3 of DZ looks awesome, VERY underrated show...
    What about 6 Feet Under?

    I just saw the other night the preview FX had on during the Shield for the new series on firefighters with Dennis Leary. I'll give that a shot I like Leary. The Job his last show did not deserve to get the axe. And Leary comes from a firefighting background.

    The summer programming being listed here sounds very exciting compared to the majority of shows released in the fall these past couple of years.

    HBO hasn't announced a start date, but I'm hoping that the third season of The Wire shows up this summer. It's in production, according to the HBO website.

    And let's not forget the second season of Dead Like Me on Showtime.

    I need to watch the episodes of various shows I Tivo'd this season but haven't gotten a chance to watch yet, like most of Angel and Smallville. Other than that, I don't plan on watching much TV, which is how it is pretty much every summer. I actually like that we get several months of (mostly) reruns. It gives me a chance to relax some and do other things, like watch more DVDs. If something comes up that looks interesting, I'll probably Tivo it.

    The only ones I'm planning to watch at this time are reruns of "Enterprise" and "Smallville" just to pick up the only episodes I missed during their telecasts the first time around.

    Same here, especially since I have a bunch of Tivo'd stuff to keep me busy. [​IMG]

    I will watch "The Amazing Race" this summer, but that's probably it.

    Only thing I plan on watching is Dead Like Me. I plan on using the rest of my time catching up on DVDs and reading.
