Which new summer shows should you try?
Tomorrow is June, and summer TV will be starting! Here are eight new shows that I think might be worth a peek, depending on your interests . . .
If you like unconventional, possibly wacky, lawyer shows . . .
Try Franklin & Bash on TNT on June 1:
or USA Network's Suits on June 23:
If you're looking for science fiction . . .
Try TNT's Falling Skies on June 19:
or Alphas on Syfy on July 11:
If you miss football season . . .
Try USA Network's Necessary Roughness on June 29:
If you need a fix of supernatural teens . . .
Don't miss MTV's Teen Wolf on June 5:
or The Nine Lives of Chloe King on ABC Family on June 14:
And if you prefer your teen drama straight up . . .
Look for ABC Family's Switched at Birth, premiering June 6:
Morning Coffee (5/31/11)
Good morning! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. (Or just a great weekend, if you're not in the US.) Sorry for the lack of posts - I didn't mean to totally disappear like that, but I think I needed the break. But now Morning Coffee is BACK, in a slightly different format - instead of a list of links you should read, I'm going to give you a sort of cultural to-do list for the day. So we'll see how that goes. Let me know if you like it!
Watch this video about Colin Hanks' documentary project about Tower Records:
Local folk - stop in at Crush Pizza today for their grand opening. I am SO excited about this place, as I live in hope of finding decent pizza in New Hampshire.
If you're on Tumblr, follow me at KateLinnea. Warning: That feed is less about the content and more about an endless stream of pictures of hot actors, pretty landscapes, and Nina Dobrev and Taylor Swift being flawless.
And check back here later for my recommendations for summer TV shows to try.

Good morning! The Morning Coffee feature is going to go on hiatus for a while, to give me time to focus on other projects, including resuming the Demon's Lexicon discussion posts and getting a bunch of other book reviews done and posted. (And some non-blog stuff.) I'll still do some occasional link round-ups, because I just can't help myself, but it won't be every morning. Thanks for understanding!
