Summer 2014 TV Shows
There are some new shows to check out this Summer, and as usual our focus is on the stuff we felt was on the geeky side.
Since it is just the Summer, pickings are slim on new geek themed shows, but the ones we found look like they are worth checking out.
5/27 – The Wil Wheaton Project (Syfy) at 10 p.m. EDT
“The 30-minute show will offer a fast-paced, lighthearted exploration and celebration of all things within the realm of science fiction and genre entertainment.”
We’re looking forward to checking this out, and we are Wil Wheaton fans, we never even hated on Wesley Crusher (much). It just sounds like fun, light, entertainment.
5/30 – Crossbones (NBC) at 10 p.m. EDT
“Set during the golden age of piracy in the 1700s and centers on legendary pirate Blackbeard.”
I just happen to like pirates. There’s no other reason this is in here. Well, I mean, it also looks like it could be a good show. But mostly…Pirates.
6/19 – The Quest (ABC) at 8 p.m. EDT
“From the producers of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Amazing Race, a new fantasy competition series that puts 12 unlikely heroes against ogres and dragons in an imaginative and mythical realm filled with state-of-the-art-projections, animatronics, prosthetics, real-time motion capture, and art direction. After a series of battles and competitions, only the true hero will remain.”
I hate reality shows, but this one is going in a different direction, which I find a lot more interesting. So if I’m ever going to watch “reality” TV, it might as well be this.
Check out EW for the trailer.
6/19 – Dominion (Syfy) at 9 p.m. EDT
“Follows the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he’s the unlikely savior of humanity.”
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Legion, will have to give it a watch before checking out this show, but Dominion looks promising.
I’m not sure if I missed anything, if I did, just leave me a comment and let me know what else I should be checking out!
