Summer viewing: Five shows to catch up on this summer

Summer is a great time of the year. It’s a chance to relax a little and catch up on some things you might have missed during the year. In today’s age of “Too Much TV,” it is easier than ever to hear about a great show but just not have the time to watch it. Well with it being summer perhaps you have found yourself with a little extra free time and no new shows to watch.

Three of the shows on the list have completed airing and two are still in their runs but all five are more than your time. Let’s get started…

A show that brings a sharp focus on the way we as humans behave and interact in the modern era.

Review: ‘The Wire’ heads to the docks for Season Two

While the first season focused on the Baltimore drug trade, season two shifts focus to the blue-collar workers down at the port. I’ve watched eight of the season’s twelve episodes and have a review coming right up…
