Summer Shows Of 2010

Posted on: August 9, 2010

The sun is hot, the days are long and the temperature is rising.

Lazy summer days are spent at the beach with a good book while lazy summer nights are spent in bed with a good show.

For us single gals anyway. 😉

Looking for a new summer show to add to your list?

I’ve got you covered.

Here are my top three favourite summer shows of 2010.

1. Covert Affairs on USA.

It’s a spy drama about a CIA trainee, Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) that gets pulled from training to work as a field operative for the Domestic Protection Division (DPD) to lure her ex-boyfriend out so they can capture him. On her first day she meets August “Auggie” Anderson (Christopher Gorham), a blind military intelligence/special operative that takes her under his wing and helps her navigate the bureaucracy that is the CIA.

It airs on Tuesdays 10/9c.

2. Leverage on TNT

Leverage is about a ex-insurance investigator, Nathan “Nate” Ford (Timothy Hutton) and his band of thieves, Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman) a grifter, Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) a hacker, Elliot Spencer (Christian Kane) a mercenary, and Parker (Beth Riesgraf) an expert thief using their skills to undo the wrongs dealt to working class people by rich companies. They run scams and cons to try and undo the damage, give compensation and bankrupt companies who think they can treat people like dirt and get away with it.

It airs on Sundays at 9/8c. It’s in its 3rd season so you might want to catch up first.

3. Lie To Me on FOX

Lie to Me is a series based on real-life scientific discoveries of Paul Ekman. The show follows Dr.Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) and his team Dr.Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams), Eli Loker (Brendan Hines), and Ria Torres (Monica Raymund) as they help government officials solve cases with their knowledge of microexpressions and body language.

It airs on Mondays at 9/8c. It’s in it’s 2nd season so you might also want to catch up before starting this one.

Those were just my top three but there are tons more out there to enjoy, like these honourable mentions.

True Blood on HBO

It airs on Sunday nights at 9pm.

Degrassi: The Next Generation on Teen Nick

It’s in it’s 10th season and airs every weeknight at 9ET

Royal Pains on USA

It airs Thursdays at 10/9c and is in its 2nd season.

White Collar on USA

It airs Tuesdays at 9/8c, and is also in its 2nd season.

So what are you watching this summer?
