We have been waiting for it all year long, and now, it is finally here; summer time! A time to pull out the shades, kick back in the sun, eat some good BBQ grub and enjoy a little good old rest and relaxation in the hammock.
Now that sounds good and all; real good…but what do you do on those days when it is just too stinking hot to have outdoor fun?
You know; those summer days when your skin is peeling so bad you look like the world famous alligator-man. Days when if you go outside you will sweat worse than Kobe Bryant in a fourth quarter playoff game.
Days when your kids are passed out on the couch claiming to have died from boredom, and if you have to play one more game of Monopoly, you just might run pass Go, not collect you $200 and run straight to the closet to lock yourself up till summer is over!
Okay, maybe you have not yet reached such dramatic extremes…but if you keep up on the path that you are on now, you just might get there! Well kiss your sorry summer days goodbye!
Here are 4 television series that are ranking well and playing this summer that you do not want to miss out on! These shows are sure to give you something a little more exciting to write on your wall than what flavor of Popsicle you are eating…

The show revolves around a big time ad man named Don Draper, who also happens to be an intriguing ladies man as well.
2. True Blood – This HBO series will begin season 3 Sunday the 13th at 9pm. True Blood is a steamy series that revolves around a telepathic waitress who falls in love with a vampire. It has won several awards including a Golden Globe and an Emmy.

If none of these shows seems to strike your interest, or if you are one of the many who just cannot handle only watching one episode a week of a good series that you are into, try going down to your local video store and picking up an earlier season of either one of the series listed above, or another big hit series that does not air during summer time.
