Summer TV, take two

A little over a month ago, I blogged about how the lack of solid original programming on TV during the summer months usually means my summer is kind of boring.

So yeah, I've been watching Murder, She Wrote. And Law & Order. But I've also decided to give some of the minimal new summer programming a try. The Closer, for example, on TNT. It's great. It has the procedural thing going for it, which I love, so I can watch virtually any episode and not have to worry about knowing backstory. And Kyra Sedgwick, as a Southern transplant in Los Angeles with a penchant for junk food, is amazing. It's good stuff.

I've also decided to give Mad Men on AMC a chance. It's an hour-long drama about the advertising industry in the early 60s. I usually think anything remotely historical equals boring, but... I guess the 60s weren't that long ago, so I can handle it. It was created by Matthew Weiner, an exec producer and writer for The Sopranos, so the script doesn't suck. I'm only one episode in, but I like it. The clothes are great, anyway.

As long as you're giving summer TV a try, give Eureka on Sci-Fi a chance. It's really good. It, Top Chef and Office and 30 Rock reruns are all I've been watching this summer.
