It’s time for my regular feature recapping my summer TV watching. Here are some of the shows I’ve been catching lately.

The Detectorists – A British show I discovered after three short six episode seasons. It’s a half hour, laid back, slice-of-life comedy about a couple of friends who share the hobby of using metal detectors to find stuff. They roam around fields having chats while sweeping the ground for hidden treasure. It’s a pleasant, low key, understated show that’s fun to watch. This is the kind of show that puts me in a good mood.

G.L.O.W. – This Netflix comedy just had its second season posted. It’s a half hour comedy about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling from back in the 1980s. I remember when the actual GLOW show ran on TV in the 80s and I watched it a little but never got into it. I’m into this show though. It’s about the trials and tribulations of trying to get the wrestling show started. At first they don’t no what they’re doing but they slowly and comedically learn. Plus there is lots of personal life stuff going on. It’s an engaging comedy.

Cloak and Dagger – Another new Marvel show that I like. I haven’t liked any of the Netflix Marvel shows but I think I like this one and a couple of others because I don’t know much about the comics they came from. I read some Cloak and Dagger comics in the 1980s but not many. And they weren’t very good. The TV show can really improve on the comics in a way that they can’t with Daredevil. There really aren’t many heroics in the show either. It’s more about a couple of teenagers struggling through growing up and having a super powered connection to each other. There is a little bit of detective work going on in it too.

Shooter – Back for its third season this show has turned into a “Fight the conspiracy” show. That makes it a little less focussed than the first season where Bob Lee Swagger was fighting to clear his name and stay out of jail and the second season where her was fighting to stay alive. I’m still enjoying the show but without clear villains it’s a little less fun.

Timeless – After being cancelled this time traveling show came back with a ten episode second season. It was as fun as the first season but that still wasn’t enough to get it more episodes so now it’s cancelled but we will be getting a two hour special to wrap it up. If you like a time travel story where they actually change time instead of painting the status quo than check this one out.

Nobodies – I didn’t even know the second season of this show was aired until after it was over. It’s a ten episode comedy from three members of “The Groundlings.” The three of them are small time writers in Hollywood trying do get projects done so they can be big time. Hilarity ensues. I like the show but it got cancelled after this second season.

Elementary – A modern Sherlock Holmes show set in NYC that’s in its sixth season. I don’t think it needs much more of a description than that. I enjoy the “Quirky detective” genre and Sherlock Holmes is the granddaddy of the genre.

New Girl – Another cancelled show but it was around for seven seasons so it had a good run. A bunch of twenty-somethings living in a Southern California loft. It was a quick paced zany comedy that kept me amused. The jokes often came fast and furious so it was fun to watch it all go by.

Ghosted – A one season and cancelled comedy that never quite hit its stride. It was about a couple of new guys who joined a government secret agency that investigated the supernatural. After ten episodes they changed the show into more of an office comedy. There was some fun stuff in there and maybe it would have found its footing with more than 16 episodes but we’ll never know.

Brockmire – The second season of this Hank Azaria comedy was good as the first if you like raunchy off-color humor. Lots of humor about sex, drugs, and baseball. So if that’s your thing check it out.

The Joel McHale Show – I liked Joel McHale in “Community” but never watched his clip show “The Soup.” When I saw this new clip show was coming to Netflix I decided to give it a try. It’s pretty good. He shows clips from various reality shows and has a good laugh.

The Break with Michele Wolf – Another Netflix clip show with another comedian. This time the screechy-voiced Michelle Wolf (she makes fun of her own voice). A different stye than Joel McHale but a fun show. Wolf likes to do a monologue so we get one of those every week. This one has grown on me.

Safe – An English mystery show with Dexter’s Michael C.Hall in the lead. He was looking for his missing daughter in a gated community. It was a confusing eight episodes that never quite came together for me. I liked it but I didn’t love it.

Ozark – A show about an accountant who was laundering money for a drug cartel. Things go bad and he ends up moving his family to the Ozarks. The mob finds him and puts him back to work. The Ozark mob doesn’t like that. Will he be able to get out from under? Which side will he be on? Which side want to kills him most? Time will tell.

Legion – I’ve only watched the first three episodes of the second season so far but I’ve enjoyed them. Legion is a show I really have to pay attention to. It’s a visual and audio treat as it’s better shot and scored than your average show. It’s a mutant superhero show with lots of misdirection and mind tricks going on. It’s tough to describe but really good.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – I throw this one in because I’ve been rewatching it. It’s remains one of my favorite comedies and it’s worth a watch if you’ve never seen it. And why have you never seen it? It’s been around for twelve years.
