August is almost over, which means we’re in the home stretch for fall season premieres! I’m of the mindset that you can never watch too many shows, especially with great inventions like DVR and On Demand to help you out! I picked a list of five of my favorite shows that I think everyone should catch up on (or at least start watching) before their season premieres. And since most shows aren’t coming back until late September or even early October, you still have some time!
Castle | September 19, ABC
I just recently caught up on this show myself (spoiler alert: don’t read that post if you haven’t already seen the epicness that was the season 3 finale!). If you’re a dramedy fan and enjoy police procedurals, this show is definitely for you! If you aren’t familiar with the plot, it’s about a mystery novelist named Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) who starts helping the NYPD homicide department with their cases. He’s first called in because a murder scene is set up to look like one from a Castle novel, but he sticks around after that’s solved because he wants to base his next character on Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). But as the seasons have progressed he seems to be in it more for the crush he has developed and the friendships he has made. And for those of you who enjoy a nice bromance, Detectives Kevin Ryan and Javier Esposito (Seamus Dever and Jon Huertas) provide just that! They definitely steal the show for me a lot of the time.
Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available on Netflix, and season 3 is on Hulu Plus. Season 3 will also be available on Netflix on September 20. If you choose to go that route, I suggest you begin DVRing season 4 while you catch up on season 3 (this is a science I’ve perfected over the years 🙂 )
