Let's start with first run summer shows.
24: Live Another Day
ChrisB, J.D. Balthazar and I will be taking turns covering the much anticipated 12-episode return of Jack Bauer starting (omg) tomorrow. Maybe I'd better get that 24 page up, huh? (Premieres May 5)
Orange is the New Black
I'm currently working on reviews of the first season of Netflix's original series; they'll be posted soon. And I'll be covering season two as soon as it's available. (Premieres June 6)
Despite my lack of enchantment with the show recently, I'll be hanging in and completing the final season of True Blood, hoping for a huge blow-out of a series finale that will include a whole lot of the delectible Eric Northman. My reviews will be cross-posted on the fan site True-Blood.net, as they have been in previous seasons. (Premieres June 22)
Panda will continue his coverage of the surprisingly good MTV werewolf drama, and I for one will definitely be watching. There's just something about this show. (Premieres June 23)
Masters of Sex
Heather will be covering the second season of the Showtime drama. I still haven't seen this one, but it's gotten such interesting press -- it's definitely on my to-do list. (Premieres July 13)
We're very excited to announce that the Agents of D.O.U.X. will be attending Comic-Con in San Diego this summer! So stay tuned for Comic-Con coverage. (This won't include me, since I just moved to the east coast in March. Twelve years in L.A., and I never got to Comic-Con. Oh, well.) (July 24-27)
Movies, movies, movies. Disney. And Shakespeare
We'll be covering quite a few of this summer's new movies, as usual. We'll also be adding retro movie reviews to our collection.
Mark Greig will be tackling the renaissance of Disney movies, from The Little Mermaid to Tarzan. The Agents of D.O.U.X. are also planning to review Shakespeare and Shakespeare-related films. How did that happen? We just got talking about the wonderful Much Ado About Nothing, and voila -- suddenly we had a whole summer schedule ranging from Hamlet and Julius Caesar to She's the Man and West Side Story.
And of course, many, many retro reviews
As we usually do during the summer, we'll be posting retro reviews of currently running shows and classic faves. In particular:
- Chris B, who is posting reviews of Castle's sixth season right now, plans to continue posting retro reviews during the summer. She'll also be reviewing the three new Richard Castle books that will be published this summer.
- I recently fell in love big time with the time-travel series Continuum and am currently reviewing the third season. Sometime this summer, I plan to post catch-up reviews of the first two seasons.
- Team X-Files (Jess Lynde, ChrisB, Dr. Nana Mom, Juliette and Heather) will continue plugging away at the nine-season monster. New X-Files reviews are currently being posted every Tuesday, and will continue during the summer. We're making progress. We're actually in season three now.
- Heather, who is currently covering the second season of Hannibal, will complete retro reviews of season one.
- J.D. Balthazar will return to his reviews of the classic science fiction series Farscape, a big favorite here at Doux.
- Juliette will continue her reviews of classic faves The West Wing and Star Trek: Voyager.
- Mark Greig will continue posting reviews of the classic Doctor Who. He's currently in the middle of the Tom Baker years.
- And last but most certainly not least, Sunbunny will return to The Tudors; she had just begun the second season.
- All this, and we'll also be posting our weekly Doux News column, and ChrisB's regular New Shows column.
So tell us -- what are you watching this summer? Are we covering it? If not, do you wish we would?
