Spring has arrived in Ann Arbor.
The sun is shining, the snow has
melted and students are emerging
from their dorm rooms to lounge in
the Diag - at least until the stress
of exam weekbanishes us all to our
respective study spots. With the
beautiful weather and the looming
threat of finals in the air, TV might
not exactly be your top priority.
Luckily, it's always our top prior-
ity. As we prepare to say goodbye
for thesummer vacation, The Daily
TV/New Media staff is offering up
a master list of the TV shows - old
and new - that we're most looking
forward to in the coming months.
24: Live Another Day
FOX - May 5 at 9 p.m.
"24: Live Another Day" prom-
ises the return of Jack Bauer
(Kiefer Sutherland, "Touch") for
another badass adventure framed
around a 24 hour time period. In
this case, it'll be loosely framed, as
this anticipated summer TV show
is merely a 12-episode miniseries
(versus the 24-episode seasons
during the show's initial eight sea-
son run). Even if the show doesn't
entirely capture the original for-
mat, it'll surely capture the great
action, tension and out-right cool
moments that helped make "24"
such a fun show to watch.
FX - May 5 at 10 p.m.
It's been a year and a half since
the third season of Louis C.K.'s
Emmy-winning "Louie" ended.
After a string of winning episodes
- including the three-part saga of
Louie's fictional audition for David
Letterman's "Late Show" and an
impromptu trip to Beijing - C.K.
ended the season needing a break.
er-editor requested an extended
hiatus to get some much-needed
time away from work to reflect and
restore creatively. And while it's
understandable that someone so
heavily involved in every aspect of
the creative process needed a little
time off, his absence in the televi-
sion world has been sorely felt. One
of the most insightful comedies on
television, "Louie" will consistent-
ly make you laugh and cry (often at
the same time) all summer long.
Orange Is the New Black
Netflix - June 6
If the trailer is any indication,
shit is about to go down in the
upcoming season of "Orange Is
the New Black." But we already
knew that - after last year's heart-
thumping, genre-bending entry
into the lacking (a.k.a. nonexistent)
female-driven prison drama cat-

egory, Jenji Kohan is getting ready
to up the ante with a new slate of
summer episodes reuniting her
with a rightfully rabid fan base.
Though plot points, as they should
be, are hard to discern, the trailer
promises to shove viewers back
into the same jumble of brilliantly
developed characters dripping
with season one's comedic charis-
ma and magnetic pathos.
The show will again be present-
ed through the eyes of Piper Chap-
man, but the real protagonistcofthe
series has always been its entire
main cast: a living, breathing tes-
tament to the powers of ensemble
writing and acting. It's the reason
we spent hours - no, days - burn-
ing through season one last year,
and the reason we won't hold back
when Crazy Eyes returns in early
June. So brace yourself, prepare
yourself, get the screwdriver ready
- to venture back into the jungle.
Pretty Little Liars
ABC Family - June 10 at 9p.m.
Every season I tell myself I am
not going to watch "Pretty Little
Liars" anymore. I quit. My ques-
tions are never answered and as
the years pass I only become more
and more confused. And yet, I can
100 percent guarantee that, come
June 10, I will be glued to my tele-
vision watching the season pre-
miere of "Pretty Little Liars." Even
though I end up frustrated every
time I watch, I have to watch. I
have to know who A is and I can't
give up on the show untilI find out.
I have to know if Ezra is alive and
if Ali is coming back to Rosewood.
"Pretty Little Liars" has mastered
the art of the cliffhanger, and it
has mastered the art ofscaring me
half to death every time I watch.
It is exhilarating. So even though
watching "Pretty Little Liars" is
a habit I should probably kick, I
refuse to stop watching. No shame.
P.S. Spencer is the best, no con-
HBO - June 15 at 10 p.m.
Any HBO drama premiere is
notable, because of the clout that
HBO has earned over the course
of the past decades (with such
dramas as "The Sopranos" and
"The Wire"). On June 15, HBO is
using the season finale of "Game
of Thrones" to launch a new
drama - "The Leftovers." Not
only is it a drama about what hap-
pens to Earth after a Rapture-like
event, but it comes from the mind
of Damon Lindelof. With "Lost"
and his work on films like the
"Star Trek" franchise, Lindelof
has established himself as one of
the most respected minds work-
ing in science fiction today. The
idea behind the show is the perfect
vehicle to explore themes similar to
those he touched on in "Lost," but
in a deeper manner. On HBO's end,
convincing Lindelof to make his big
return to TV on their network is a
huge coup, guaranteeing them one
of the most highly anticipated dra-
mas of the summer.
HBO - June 22 at 9 p.m.
Sometime during season five,
between its religious allegory and
faerie nightclubs, "True Blood"
went off the rails (not that it hadn't
always been a crazy, crazy show).
But nonetheless, I've loved every
gory, messy minute of it. After its
reinvigorated sixth season - the
best 10 episodes the series had
delivered in years - "True Blood"
's upcoming season will bring an
end to the Sookie Stackhouse saga,
and hopefully bring "Blood" back
to its roots. Amid the madness of
werewolves, shifters, maenads,
witches ... the list goes on ... "True
Blood" 's core is the relationship
between vampires and humans.
Last year's finale set in motion a
final run that will bring the focus
back to where it started, while also
embracing and celebrating where
it's been. Is "True Blood" going to
be remembered as one of the great
series of this "golden age" of tele-
vision? Unlikely. But there are still
10 more episodes of supernatural
hijinks and campy fun toube had -
and "True Blood" is nothing if not
an outrageously enjoyable ride.
Masters of Sex
Showtime - July 13 at 10 p.m.
The first season of Showtime's
"Masters of Sex" was absolutely
fantastic - easily one of the best
new dramas in a year of incredibly
stiff competition (this pun was
accidental, I swear). "MoSproved
it was more than just a show about
sex and giant glass science dil-
dos - its standout quality is its
impressive heart. The relationship
between Michael Sheen's William
Masters and Lizzy Caplan's Vir-
ginia Johnson is the most electric
coworker relationship on televi-
sion since Don Draper and Peggy
Olson, but it was Allison Janney's
heart wrenching portrayal of a
sexually frustrated middle-aged
wife that really brought "MoS" to
the next level. Some subplots (Lib-
by's dance lessons, anybody?) fal-
tered, but the smart insights into
the complexities of human emo-
tional connection were enough to
make "MoS" master of my heart.
FX - July (time/date TBA)
Once upon a time, vampires
were cool. They were scary. They
weren't tortured puppy dogs or
brooding love interests. They
were evil, vicious and menacing.
With "The Strain," filmmaker
Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Lab-
yrinth"), writer/producer Carl-
ton Cuse ("Bates Motel") and FX
aim to resurrect the myth of the
vampire the way it was always
meant to be told. Based on the
novel by Del Toro and writer
Chuck Hogan, "The Strain" fol-
lows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather
(Corey Stoll, "House of Cards")
and his team as they combat
an ancient strain of vampirism
in modern-day New York. The
series begins with a plane land-
ing at JFK with 200 bodies on
board and four survivors. Soon
enough the bodies start disap-
pearing from morgues and the
monsters of myth become the
nightmares of reality. Del Toro
will direct the first episode while
Cuse will serve as showrun-
ner, something he's proven to be
capable at from his time at "Lost"
and "Bates Motel."
