True Blood

dvr this HBO, Sunday, June 22, 10 p.m. The TV show with the highest ratio of trash to production values, True Blood is returning for its seventh and final season.

Orange is the New Black

dvr this On demand on Netflix The second season of Netflix’s breakout hit dramatic comedy about a women’s prison debuted last week, and I binged on all thirteen episodes in one sitting.
