If you’re trying to avoid the Texas heat or save money, these recommendations should get you through the summer:
Orange is the New Black, season four
Many have described this as better than season three (which confuses me because I loved season three), but I did watch the whole season in a weekend, when season three took me a couple of weeks…
iZombie, season one
This one took me a while to warm up to because of all the on-screen brain-eating, but at least they try to make it funny. She mixes it in with stir fry, she makes brain sushi….
Whatever your stance on gross food images, it’s a Rob Thomas show, so of course it’s great.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, season one
I did not expect to like this. Even this trailer does nothing to make me want to watch the show. I hate the idea of a girl moving to another city to chase her uninterested ex-boyfriend, but there is a lot going on with this fantastic spectacle, including a very flawed heroine that’s easy to both like and relate to and Broadway-level musical numbers.
How to Get Away With Murder, season one and two
The rumors are true. This is both fantastic and addictive. You should watch it. I’m surprised and disappointed if you haven’t already.
Jane the Virgin, seasons one and two
I haven’t watched this yet, but it’s on my list because it’s won a bunch of awards and people keep comparing it to Ugly Betty, which is one of my favorite shows, so I think it’s a safe bet.
