Friday marked the first official day of Summer, though many of us have been feeling the pain of the sparse Summertime TV schedule for several weeks now. It's barely just begun! Sigh.
The upside is that the Summer months provide more free time to catch up on those shows you missed during regular TV seasons. Certain shows like Heroes are nice, easy ones because the episodes go fast, and you'll be able to move right along to the second season's DVDs when they come out later this year.
My parents just started watching the DVDs of last Summer's FX hit Damages, starring Glenn Close, which I fully support. And I've convinced several friends to rent the Friday Night Lights DVDs. I just know they'll like the show if they give it a chance to hook 'em.
And though I know it's a Summer show anyway, you'll have almost four weeks to catch up on the first season of Mad Men when it comes out on DVD July 1 — the second season starts up July 27. Or, for something a little lighter, the first "chapter" of Greek is a lot of fun to put on when you just need to crank the air conditioning and relax.
And if you've never seen an episode of Lost in your life and you're feeling ambitious, you have from now until January 2009 to watch every episode!
Will you catch up on any TV on DVD this Summer?
