After Donovan’s previously scornful Aunt Violet makes a heartfelt apology for her past behavior, Elizabeth is glad to include her in the planning process. As the weeks fly by and the arrangements for the wedding grow more elaborate, Elizabeth feels the burden of expectations she will face as Mrs. Darcy.

It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny - where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.

GLOW and Luke Cage I guess? Any recommendations? June doesnt look very good
It's a pretty big month - HBO, AMC, and FX all have new dramas (Succession, Dietland, and Pose respectively) and Paramount Network is coming out swinging with American Woman and Yellowstone, the latter of which should be among the best of the year (Taylor Sheridan wrote and directed every episode himself!)

I'm glad Salvation is returning, it can be a really dumb show sometimes and some twists are just there to hide a small budget, but it's a perfect CBS summer guilty pleasure show. :)

I'll definitely be checking out Pose and at least the first episode of Cloak & Dagger. Might check out Dietland and Man in an Orange Shirt.

Day one for GLOW though, I adored the first season. Of course I'll check in on Big Brother because I'm trash.

Definitely GLOW.
Sense8
Edit: Somehow completely missed the news about the Sense8 finale movie. I thought it wouldn't be coming until the end of the year.
Finishing Killing Eve this week (really good), and starting Altered Carbon finally.

Might check out:

Pose
La Foret (looks kind of creepy and moody)
A Very English Scandal
Man in an Orange Shirt
Dietland
Yellowstone

Succession looks so godawful boring, what a waste of Bryan Cox. Is Secret City any good? I didn't even know Anna Torv had a new TV show.

Has anyone seen this French miniseries, Le Chalet?

I'm probably in the wrong years thread, but I finally got the wife to start watching iZombie with me!

She's got a zombie phobia of sorts and I couldn't get it through her head that it wasn't the Walking Dead.

Yellowstone sounds pretty good. Happy to have GLOW back and likely checking out Pose. I'll give Luke Cage S2 a shot. Still haven't started Jessica Jones S2.

12 Monkeys
The Affair

I watch a few shows on FX and I'm already really really tired of seeing POSE promos. I'm not sure who that show is for. Is it drag queens? It is trans? Is it strippers, prostitutes, dancers? I don't know. I do love some Van Der Beek though.

Excited for Sense 8, though, I'm not sure how they could possibly wrap everything up in a satisfying way. I'll probably try Cloak and Dagger, because I've at least watched a couple episodes of every superhero show. I'll try Take Two as well because I loved Castle. Luke Cage, loved the first season, wary though because if Iron Fist is in it he's going to fuck everything up. Didn't realize PBS was getting the new GBBS season so that was a pleasant surprise.

TV Calendar says that Elementary started on April 30th, I haven't been paying attention to know if that's true, is there a reason you've got it listed here too?

These lists are awesome because I always end up finding something I've forgotten about or somehow didn't know about, thanks for making them Ratsky.

Technically this popped up in May (just a few days ago, in fact), but has anyone had a chance to check out BBC's King Lear (starring Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson and Emily Watson)?

Succession, Yellowstone, GLOW, Luke Cage, Staircase, Secret City, Humans, Cloak and Dagger, Strange Angel Sense 8 movie.

Edit to add: I get that its funny, but these lists are always full of Lifetime/Hallmark original movies, and I think it kind of works against the goal of finding the actual good shows amidst the already huge numbers of TV shows.

Will Watch:
Pose - Ryan Murphy owns me at this point.
Condor - I'm a sucker for Spy Fiction, so I'm pretty much obligated to check it out.
Yellowstone - Taylor Sheridan hasn't done wrong by me so far.

Might Watch:
Succession - If it reviews well and I'm in the mood for what looks like by the books prestige drama
Strange Angel - Also if it reviews well, the trailers got me interested. But I'm not sure if the show will hold all the way.

RatskyWatsky I promise I will get to it at some point Watch:

Thanks, Ratsky!

I'll catch up on GLOW sooner or later, but it's not likely a huge priority for me this month. Yellowstone is the only thing I'm watching beyond that.

As always, I'll only list the new shows premiering that I'll check out.

Succession
Dietland + the after show
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger


Is it just me or is ABC's The Proposal just Fox's Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? from almost 20 years ago?

New trailer for 12 Monkeys featuring the first movie callback in what feels like forever.


Two more weeks! Previous seasons are on Hulu now for those who need to catch up.

12 Monkeys (aka the most underrated show currently on)
Strange Angel
Cloak and Dagger
Sense8 finale

And I might give Kiss Me First a look because I don't get what it even is at this point.

Technically this popped up in May (just a few days ago, in fact), but has anyone had a chance to check out BBC's King Lear (starring Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson and Emily Watson)?
The whole Shakespeare in a modern setting has been done before to the point of me wondering why they're even bothering, but the talent will make me watch this.


Succession, Dietland, and Pose are launching on the networks where I pretty much watch whatever they do, but they all look so... unappealing. How have reviews been?
FX has been pushing Pose HARD, and call me close-minded, but it's a HARD pass from my wife and I. We're not the audience for it, anyway.

I hear you. Ryan Murphy + FX can occasionally be brilliant, though. I'll give it a shot, and I am at least somewhat curious. It's about something I really have no knowledge of at all.

Every time those commercials came on during the Americans finale made me laugh, though, at the sheer absurdity of the juxtaposition. Which was kind of helpful, actually, as we probably all could've used some of that during.

I watch a few shows on FX and I'm already really really tired of seeing POSE promos. I'm not sure who that show is for. Is it drag queens? It is trans? Is it strippers, prostitutes, dancers? I don't know. I do love some Van Der Beek though.
Same.

I'm excited to watch this. 12 Monkeys is a million times better than I ever thought it would be when it was first announced.

I was so negative on it during the first season cause it was breaking all of the rules of the movie, but then I waited to binge the second season and somehow it became one of the best shows in recent years.

The show is for anyone who likes quality TV, judging by the reviews!

TV Calendar says that Elementary started on April 30th, I haven't been paying attention to know if that's true, is there a reason you've got it listed here too?
I think it was in a new time slot or something?

Edit to add: I get that its funny, but these lists are always full of Lifetime/Hallmark original movies, and I think it kind of works against the goal of finding the actual good shows amidst the already huge numbers of TV shows.
Fair enough. These lists are heavily curated so it doesn't really make sense to clutter it up with every kooky Lifetime/Hallmark movie. Maybe I'll cut it down to only the most outrageous ones~

RatskyWatsky I promise I will get to it at some point Watch: Claws

As Cornballer said, Succession has received positive-to-mixed reviews thus far, as has Dietland. Pose is getting good reviews across the board though.

Y’all better be watching Claws.

Do we know if Midnight, Texas is coming back this summer?
I believe it's coming back this fall.

It is a positively received new show from one of the most hailed writer/producers around about a largely overlooked subculture (i.e. ball culture). But sure, reduce it to being "just" for the people it is depicting, and reduce the people it is depicting to stereotypes.
