Army Wives (The Complete Second Season)

Synopsis: Army Wives follows the lives of four army wives, their families, and an “army husband” whose wife is in the army.

Cast: Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brigid Brannagh, Catherine Bell, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller

Recommendations: When I started watching Army Wives, the quality of the show really blew me away. And the second season is as good as the first one. This is your chance to own it so you can watch it over and over again.

Raising the Bar (The Complete First Season)

Synopsis: Raising the Bar revolves around a group of law school classmates who find themselves on opposite sides of the criminal law.

Cast: Mark Paul Gosselaar, Natalia Cigliuti, Gloria Reuben, Teddy Sears, J. August Richards, Melissa Sagemiller, Jane Kaczmarek, Currie Graham

Recommendations: If you haven’t seen Raising the Bar yet, then you are missing out. It is such a great show that for once focuses on the defense side of the justice system. The stories are really compelling and it’s pretty scary to think this is how the system really works. It’s a great reality check. You don’t want to miss it. And with season 2 starting on June 8th, this is the perfect time to catch up.

Must Rent

prison_break_s4dvd

Prison Break (The Complete Fourth Season)

Synopsis: Most men would do anything to get out of Fox River Penitentiary, but Michael Scofield will do anything to get in. His brother Lincoln has been sentenced to die for a crime he did not commit, and the only way to save him is from the inside out. Armed with prison blueprints and an impossibly intricate escape plan, Michael gets himself incarcerated, and the race against time is on. Now, he’ll need all of the cunning, daring, and luck he can muster…along with the assistance of some of the prison’s most vile and dangerous felons.

Cast: Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller, Robin Tunney, Peter Stormare, Amaury Nolasco, Sarah Wayne Callies, Marshall Allman, Wade Williams, Paul Adelstein, Robert Knepper, Stacy Keach, Barbara Eve Harris

Recommendations: Well, this is the final season for Prison Break, and it’s true that the show is definitely not what it was in its first season, but if you have been a fan and want to find out how it all ends, then this would be a great rental.

Wallander

Synopsis: Wallander is a series adapted from Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander novels and starring Kenneth Branagh as the eponymous police inspector.

Blood Ties

Synopsis: Blood Ties centers around Vicki Nelson, a former TPS cop who left the force to become a private investigator after beginning to lose her eyesight. Through her work she teams up with the 480-year-old vampire Henry Fitzroy, who happens to be the illegitimate son of Henry VIII.

Cast: Christina Cox, Kyle Schmid, Dylan Neal, Gina Holden

Recommendations: If you feel like maybe discovering a new show this summer, you might want to give Blood Ties a chance. I personally haven’t seen it, and although I doubt it’s up to the quality standards on Moonlight and True Blood, it might be fun to check out, especially for vampire fans.
