Aquarius

Quotes of the Week: July 12-25

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Aquarius
Brian: Trust me. Don’t trust yourself. You’re unreliable.

The Fosters
Stef: No amount of therapy was going to turn you into a woman.

Chasing Life
Sara: There comes a point in your adult life when you realize that you’re really the only one who can decide how you live, and that’s a lot of power, which is good, but it’s also really scary.

Heroes
Meredith: You remember what Daddy used to say?: “God gave you a big sister instead of a brain.”

The Astronaut Wives Club
Max: No one gets what they want if they don’t ever ask.

Rookie Blue

Gail: I don’t sign cards. I don’t wish people things.

Killjoys

Lucy: Decontamination sequence complete.

8 New Summer Shows…

Here is the list of this summer’s shows that I am most excited about checking out. Not all of them will be winners, but they either have an interesting premise or a cast that excites me. Check out the trailers below and let me know which shows you are looking forward to watching!

1. Texas Rising premieres May 25 on History, stars Bill Paxton, Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Oliver Martinez, Thomas Jane, Christopher McDonald, Jeremy Davies, Chad Michael Murray, Max Thieriot, Robert Knepper, Rhys Coiro, Crispin Glover, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Trevor Donovan, Jake Busey, and too many more to list them all. This mini-series tells the story of how the Texas Rangers started. It probably will not be historically accurate, but it has a great cast and looks like it could be interesting.



2. Aquarius premieres May 28 on NBC, stars David Duchovny, Grey Damon, Gethin Anthony, Emma Dumont, Claire Holt, Michaela McManus, and Brian F. O’Byrne. Taking place in Los Angeles in 1967, Duchovny plays a detective who is trying to track down Charles Manson and his cult of followers.



3. Sense8 will be released June 5 on Netflix, stars Aml Ameen, Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Brian J. Smith, Max Riemelt, Tuppence Middleton, Tina Desae, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Naveen Andrews, Darryl Hannah, and Freema Agyeman. This series is about a group of people around the world who are suddenly linked mentally. They now have to find a way to survive being hunted by those who see them as a threat.



4. The Astronaut Wives Club premieres June 18 on ABC, stars Yvonne Strahovski, Odette Annable, Erin Cummings, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Wilson Bethel, Kenneth Mitchell, Bret Harrison, Evan Handler, Desmond Harrington, Joel Johnstone, Azure Parsons, Sam Reid, and Aaron McCusker. Based on the Lily Koppel novel of the same name, this series tells the story of the real life wives of America’s astronauts during the height of the space race. This is another show that may not be entirely historically accurate, but that looks like a lot of fun.
