The dog days of summer are upon us and while there is still pently of shows to be watching it’s not nearly as much as it was during the regular tv season.

To help you get though some of  those lazy summer days that lack any new shows here are 10 recent shows that we feel are a MUST SEE/MUST Catch up on. The list includes shows that got cancelled/renewed and deserve your time to watch.

1.) ABC’s Revenge

Emily Thorne is out for Revenge over her fathers wrongful accusing. The show has something for everyone and will keep you glued to the thrilling/suspenseful action packed show. Revenge will be back for season 2 in the fall.

2.) AMC’s The Walking Dead

Zombies and drama in this post apocalyptic show. That’s all that needs to be said, check it out for yourself! Catch up before Season 3 this October.

3.) NBC’s Awake

Detective Michael Britton is caught between two realities in this sci-fi drama. Not knowing whether his son or wife are dead or alive he begins to loose control as he navigates two realities. Even though cancelled the series comes to a satisfying conclusion of sorts that will dredge up all of your emotions in the thrilling epic finale.

It is the greatest finale I have EVER seen!- Aaron

4.) FOX’s Raising Hope

A feel good comedy that will have you laughing at every episode. The show really hit it stride in season 2 and best of all will be back for season 3.

5.) NBC’s Chuck

NBC’s little show that could deifying cancellation to make it 5 seasons and given the chance to have a proper finale. The action-comedy/spy-drama about an ordinary guy, a nerd who in the end becomes a spy and gets the girl will have you glued to his story through all 5 seasons.

6.) AMC’s The Killing

A show about a single murder investigation and how it affects everyone involved will pull you in with all the suspense and character development. Think of the show as a cross between “24” and “CSI”. The show requires patience as each episode progress just one day. In season 2 the show hits its stride as a bigger conspiracy emerges.

7.) ABC Family’s The Lying Game

Two twins who secretly swap lives as they try to uncover who there real parents are and n the process they begin to uncover secrets about the people closest to them. If you like “Revenge” and “Ringer” then you will quickly like the suspenseful show. The show was renewed for Season 2.

8.) FOX’s Terra Nova

The sci-fi series follows the Shannon family as they travel 85 million years into the past. The show is full of action, conspiracy and dinosaurs. Though only making it one season its well worth your time and you can live with the slightly cliff hanger ending.

9.) NBC’s Parks and Recreation

Season 4 fired on all cylinders and was full of laughs and touching moments that you normally don’t see in comedy. We would be happy to vote for Leslie Knope! Parks will be back in the fall for season 5.

10.) NBC’s The Firm

Taking place 10 years after the book/movie the series follows the McDeere family though a massive conspiracy. The show is fast paced in the beginning and ending of each episode often using flash forwards to help tell the current story. There is a lot to keep up with the show but the suspense and incredible story will keep you glued to each episode.

ABC Family’s “The Lying Game”

First off if you have missed this diamond of a show you are missing out on some very good and addicting tv.

The show premiered in August before ABC’s “Revenge” even took the air and it had instantly become my favorite new show. Since then I have compared the quality of the show and the sometimes dark revengeful characters to that of “Revenge” and honestly feel it could be airing right along side it.

Update: The Lying Game has been officially renewed for season 2!

Overview (From Wikipedia)

The series is about Emma (Alexandra Chando), a foster child who finds out she has an identical twin sister, Sutton (also played by Chando). The girls were separated at birth, with Sutton being adopted by wealthy parents and seemingly living an ideal life. Meeting prior to the pilot episode, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues information about their birth mother in Los Angeles. Initially excited to do this favor for her sister, Emma soon learns that Sutton has many hidden secrets. Now Emma must continue to cover as Sutton continues her search for their birth mother. When Sutton reclaims her identity, Emma’s fate is unknown, as the twins, along with some of their closest friends, attempt to sort through the secrets of the people around them. By the end of the series, Alec is arrested for the murder of Derrick Rogers, and Sutton and Emma are “Rebecca’s” twin daughters. It is also suggested that it is possible that Ted is Sutton and Emma’s biological father because he had an affair with Rebecca who is their biological mother.
