    Normally I just watch baseball during the summer since most of the new programming is garbage, but this year we have Better Call Saul, The Orville, Strange New Worlds, a solid 2nd season of Only Murders in the Building.
    What else has come out this summer that I should watch?

    I haven't seen it myself but The Old Man (Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow) is meant to be really good.

    It resumes next week, but I just rewatched Resident Alien and my opinion of the Second season so far has improved. Still didn't like episode 3 of the season but it was the only episode I had a negative reaction to. The rest still maintained that Season 1 comedy.

    For All Mankind, The Sandman, The Boys, Ms Marvel, Obi Wan, LDS, Paper Girls... Then She-Hulk and Andor on the way. There's too many good shows these days.

    Oh, Russian Doll!

    Yellowjackets. Yellowjackets. That is a show. That is a very good show.

    Then there's things from the last few months or years I've only recently caught up with. Squid Game, The Good Place, Cobra Kai, Kim's Convenience, Peaky Blinders...

    I think it's a golden age of television. Truly. Alice in Borderland, The Boys, For All Mankind, most likely The Sandman and goodness knows what else renewed for more episodes...

    I agree it's a golden age of television. There's a joke on an episode of Family Guy that everybody recommends the same two shows: Breaking Bad and The Wire. While those are in my top five favorite shows, there are also three that were on this year that I probably annoyingly recommend to my friends and family that they should watch:

    The Boys
    Better Call Saul
    Succession

    Those are three shows I HAVE to watch the day they come out. There's a few others on TV right now I try to catch either the day of or the day after:

    Barry
    Westworld
    What We Do In The Shadows
    Jack Ryan

    Yes, Yellowjackets and Succession are both really good.
