We had a thread about season finales of TV series - so what about new series coming out for the summer.

I recorded Franklin & Bash -- wondering if anyone has watched it yet. It has potential to be decent, given the premise - but if it's all just slapstick frat boy humor, I don't really want to waste my time on it!

I'm looking forward to Rizzoli and Isles as well as Covert Affairs starting back up.

Eureka, Haven & Royal Pains is what I am looking forward to. I'm such a nerd...I noted down the start dates in my calendar so I wouldn't forget they were coming on/ to DVR them!

I can't wait until for Warehouse 13. In the meantime I am catching up on old series I never watched before.

I don't know that one...Is it new this year or was it on last year? I'll have to watch for it.

Rissoli & Isles, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Warehouse 13, and The Glades will all automatically be recorded by the DVR because I haven't ever stopped any of those. But the only ones I'm actually looking forward to are Burn Notice and The Glades. Covert Affairs was a solid "meh" last time around, others in the house liked Rissoli & Isles much more than I did, and season two of Warehouse 13 was mostly a flop.

I've also enjoyed the first two seasons of Men of a Certain Age, but the first episode of season 3 which just aired the other day wasn't a great start.

It's new! It premieres June 6 on HGTV. Time says 8/7 Central.

I got hooked on HGTV while recovering from surgery in April, and they've been playing promo commercials regularly. It looks like it's going to be fun. First episode is titled "Backyard Train Station."

I can't wait to see Rookie Blues and America's Got Talent. At the beginning of the season is not always great, but sometimes you really get some people on there that are REALLY good at what they do.

Looking forward to Teen Wolf, The A List:New York Season 2, Ru Paul's Drag U Season 2 and Jersey Shore Season 4 in Italy!

Spoilers ahead?
We just watched it last night....meh - wasn't the greatest thing on HGTV we ever watched. I'm a real pain-in-the-butt and not into to much "cute" :rolleyes: We got to wondering - so what happens when one of them sells their house, or the kids grow up? Are those items technically property of Disney? I''m guessing they wouldn't let you yard sale those things! Now, the preview for next weeks show, that backyard looks fun. We'll watch it again.

I felt the same. I thought the end result of the project was incredible -- loved it; loved the kids' reactions. But as for the show -- it didn't hook me. It had too much behind-the-scenes action to have the impact that the end of, say, "Extreme Home Makeovers" has, but not enough of the Imagineering side to make it really interesting to me.

"Rehab Addict" -- there's a show I'll go out of my way to watch!

Uh oh, while I've enjoyed the previous two seasons of Men of a Certain Age, apparently the shine is off. Found episode 1 of the new season boring and episode 2 I turned off halfway through. Also couldn't get back in the groove with the season premiere of Covert Affairs. Maybe I'm just not in the mood for TV at the moment.

I'm hoping it was just a blip with Covert Affairs. There was too much internal stuff - and not enough 'spy stuff' going on. I mean did Auggie (sp?) get to do anything fun with his techno stuff?

Hmmm...more evidence for the "not in the mood for summer TV" argument. After two episodes of The Glades I'm tired of it. But it is doing the same stuff I enjoyed last season so I thin it's me.

After 2 episodes of Franklin and Bash, I'll continue to watch it, I think. Kind of reminds me of The Defenders, which was on my record list, but didn't always get watched right away.

Same here! I can't wait!

I watch all those type of shows. I don't know why, but I really like them.

I can't wait for Entourage, Hung, and True Blood.

I DVR'd Teen Wolf because I liked the movie so I want to see if it is like it.

I still have Army Wives taping. Didn't watch the last 2 episodes so I might have hit the season finale and I just don't know it.

I am also going to give Switched at Birth a try. I am going to have a heart attack when I move out and I don't have DVR anymore! I am going to be going to visit my mama just to watch my TV shows!
