Well, it looks like another semester has come to an end! Finals week is over, and for me that means a lot of change. I will be spending my first summer in my new apartment in Turlock. I will be out of class, out of work, and free to really experience the new place and the town of Turlock. My girlfriend is back from her college in New York for the summer, so we will be spending all kinds of time together! I’m hoping this summer brings great experiences, for myself and for all of you! I know for some of us the summer means a lot of free time, so I thought I would leave you all with some entertainment recommendations, for when you’re not busy having summer adventures.
Mad Men: This brilliant show is going on its mid-season break this weekend, so this summer is a great chance to catch up on it if you haven’t already! The show has six thirteen episode seasons, and season 7 (the final season) is currently airing. 1960′s drama in the world of advertising is in the hands of some great talent with this show!
Game of Thrones: This show is on its fourth ten episode season, and is on a short break until the beginning of June! Hop on the GoT train and experience the fantasy drama that everyone is probably already spoiling you on!
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: If you want a show that’s already finished and isn’t chugging along ahead of you, try hopping on Netflix and checking out this classic! Joss Whedon brought to TV seven (mostly awesome) seasons of this show. It’s a great commentary on horror, high school, and growing up. I’m approaching season seven now!
Attack on Titan: If you’re a fan of beautiful art, this is the show for you. This dramatic anime can be quite intense at times, but the emotion behind this great story is what will keep you going through all twenty-six episodes.
Sword Art Online: This brilliant looking show follows ten thousand video game players that are trapped in a virtual reality world and have to battle their way out. This twenty-five episode show is more light-hearted than something like Attack on Titan, but the action and characters are still great!
Black Bullet: This anime is just beginning, with only seven episodes out! I always describe the show as Attack on Titan meets Resident Evil. There’s a virus, there are government agencies, there are monsters, and there are some badass fight scenes. Check it out!
NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour: If you’re a fan of all things pop culture related like I am, this is the show for you! This group is hilarious and very well informed about everything from movies and television to books and comics.
Stuff You Should Know: This show is hosted by two everymen who do the research and bring you podcasts on everything from avalanches to amputations. This podcast is funny and really informative!
Well, there are some of my recommendations for the summer! I hope you enjoy some of them, and I hope your summers are wonderful. Until fall, see you later!
