Everwood (The Complete Second Season)

Synopsis: Dr. Andrew Brown and his family are starting their second year in tiny Everwood, Colorado. Enough time to begin recovering from the death of Andy’s wife. To put down roots. To be at home. To be at peace. Or maybe just enough time to be in total turmoil. This year Andy finds he can indeed fall in love again, 16-year-old son Ephram falls hard for an older girl, and Ephram’s friend Amy, in shock from the death of her boyfriend, falls prey to depression…and turns to the wrong young man for solace. Powerful, frequently funny and always warmly human, Everwood is your kind of place.

Burn Notice (Season 2)

Synopsis: Covert intelligence operative Michael Westen has been punched, kicked, choked and shot. Now he’s being burned, and someone’s going to pay! When Michael receives a “burn notice,” blacklisting him from the intelligence community and compromising his very identity, he must track down a faceless nemesis without getting himself killed in the process. Meanwhile, Michael is forced to double as a private investigator on the dangerous streets of Miami in order to survive.
This new season follows Westen as he takes on all new death-defying assignments in hopes of getting closer to his new employers, the people that were possibly responsible for his ousting. Joining the cast this season is Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Gallactica”) as Carla, the woman who may be behind Michael’s “burn notice.”

Cast: Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell, Sharon Gless

Recommendations: Burn Notice is one of USA’s great TV shows, so if you have missed season 2, here is your chance to catch up and find out if Michael finally discovers who put a burn notice on him.

Saving Grace (Season 2)

Synopsis: Hard-edged police detective Grace Hanadarko is certainly no angel, but she has one on her shoulder. Academy-Award winner Holly Hunter returns as Grace, a no-nonsense cop whose fierce dedication to her job belies her self-destructive lifestyle. Taking on kidnappings, homicides, and the dark specter of the Oklahoma City bombing, Grace receives celestial guidance from a gruff guardian angel who may be her last chance for salvation. Meanwhile, Ham, Grace’s partner and sometime lover, faces a staggering crisis that threatens his job, his relationships, and even his life. Dramatically engaging, darkly funny, and emotionally gripping, Saving Grace is television at its most transcendent—don’t miss it!

Cast: Holly Hunter, Leon Rippy, Laura San Giacomo, Kenneth Johnson, Bokeem Woodbine, Gregory Cruz, Dylan Minnette, Lorraine Toussaint and Bailey Chase

Recommendations: While I don’t follow Saving Grace closely, I do enjoy watching an episode here and there, and I think it’s worth renting especially now that you have some extra time during the summer.
