After a jam-packed spring of prestige TV, there is a limited window where viewers can catch up — before the next onslaught begins with Game of Thrones. THR‘s TV critic Daniel Fienberg details his strategies on which shows should be demanding your free time, since less new shows will be launching in the slower summer weeks. On his list are the series that dominated the recent critic conversation (Better Call Saul, The Handmaid’s Tale, Fargo, The Americans, The Leftovers); the shows that shouldn’t have been canceled (WGN’s Underground, MTV’s Sweet/Vicious, ABC’s Downward Dog and Netflix’s Sense8 — which is now returning for a two-hour finale); the great stuff on network TV (NBC’s The Carmichael Show, ABC’s Speechless, NBC’s The Good Place and Superstore, and The CW’s Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend); and the recent onslaught of Netflix offerings (Orange Is The New Black, Dear White People, Master of None, F is for Family, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, GLOW, The Keepers and The Ranch); in addition to what Hulu and Amazon has available, like Casual and Sneaky Pete.
