What to watch: The best of summer TV

Now that warmer weather is upon us, and so many of our favorite shows are breaking for the summer, it’s time for us to start deciding what we’re gonna watch. It’s not like it used to be, when summer was a TV wasteland. These days, summer programming is prime, quality TV.

Summer is the best time to get into a new show, (or revisit an old one) because the heat makes showrunners and writers take more risks (and get a little more risqué, in some cases).

Here’s what I’m most excited about this summer:

Barely Famous
If you have ever watched and enjoyed a reality show, then Barely Famous will tickle you in exactly the right spot. Starring sorta-famous sisters Erin and Sara Foster, this very-funny spoof on the pervasive reality culture is as smart as it is hilarious.

'You're the Worst' roundtable: Unintentional douchiness

Season 2 | Episode 12 | “Other Things You Could Be Doing” | Aired Dec 2, 2015

Each week, EW Community contributors chat about the newest episode of You’re the Worst while they watch. This week, Tamar Barbash and Sundi Rose Holt share their thoughts as they watch “Other Things You Could Be Doing.”

Tamar: I so don’t want to watch Jimmy hook up with this girl.

Sundi: Things are going pretty fast with him and the bartender. This is definitely not going to help Gretchen and her depression. And now it looks like we might get our wish and finally see Edgar do some improv.

Tamar: Yes! I hope so. I like Lindsay so much better when she’s vulnerable.Read More

'You're the Worst' roundtable: Fartface Jimmy

Season 2 | Episode 10 | “A Right Proper Story” | Aired Nov 11, 2015

Each week, EW Community contributors chat about the newest episode of You’re the Worst while they watch. This week, Tamar Barbash and Sundi Rose Holt share their thoughts as they watch “A Right Proper Story.”

Sundi: Sex AND a slap fight … got to love these YTW cold opens.

Tamar: Ahhh, I’m having so many thoughts. And now Gretchen mailed those punishment letters for Jimmy. What a disaster.

Sundi: I am so into this new facet of Jimmy’s personality. He’s like an English Yosemite Sam.Read More

Season 2 | Episode 9 | “LCD Soundsystem” | Aired Nov 4, 2015

Each week, EW Community contributors chat about the newest episode of You’re the Worst while they watch. This week, Tamar Barbash and Sundi Rose Holt share their thoughts as they watched “LCD Soundsystem.”

Tamar: I’m confused. What am I watching?
Sundi: I dunno. I’m standing by for more info. Ahhh … it’s a little context for how the world sees Gretchen and Jimmy. And possible antagonists for them.
Tamar:
I feel like I need to rewatch that. I wasn’t paying attention, I thought it was the wrong show.
Sundi: These characters are Gretchen-and-Jimmy–lite.
Tamar:
Ha! Love the Lost reference.
Sundi:
I’m loving this contrasting of characters.
Tamar: Really? So far I’m kind of like, “Who are these people and where is my show?”
Sundi:
It’s definitely a departure, but it seems like we’re supposed to make some comparisons.
Tamar:
I agree. Gretchen’s being creepy. What’s she thinking when she’s watching them?
Sundi:
Maybe envy?
Tamar:
Maybe. Okay, I just rewatched the open, cause I wasn’t plugged in enough the first time. It seems the idea is that with just a little evolution Gretchen and Jimmy could be functioning and contributing members of society.

Season 2 | Episode 7 | “There is Not Currently a Problem” | Aired Oct 21, 2015

Each week, EW Community contributors chat about the newest episode of You’re the Worst while they watch. This week, Tamar Barbash and Sundi Rose Holt share their thoughts as they watched “There is Not Currently a Problem.”

Tamar: So last week ended with Gretchen crying in her car.
Sundi:
Since when does Jimmy wear a sleep apnea mask? Is that new?
Tamar:
No, I think we’ve seen it before. OMG. “Hakuna Matata.” Jimmy is the best.
Sundi:
I don’t really get her incredulity about Janis Joplin. She’s badass. The Lion King … not so much.
Tamar:
This whole conversation is hilarious. Jimmy thinks he’s so sophisticated.
Sundi:
This Lion King bit is pretty funny. It is really flexing the clever muscle that I love and admire about this show.

Season 2 | Episode 6 | “Side Bitch” | Aired Oct 14, 2015

Each week, EW Community contributors chat about the newest episode of You’re the Worst. This week, Tamar Barbash and Sundi Rose Holt chatted during the episode. Here are their thoughts as they watched “Side Bitch.”

Tamar: I find these cold opens to often be my favorite part of the episode.

Sundi: But I could have done without the phrase “finger-bang.” It seems so aggressive.

Tamar: And Jimmy’s assessment: “Poor, ignorant Edgar.”

Sundi: Apparently Jimmy is an expert on questioning “perps” now that he’s got some experience on NCIS: LA.

Tamar: I’m not sure I ever noticed that the only lyrics in the opening song are “I’m gonna leave you anyway.”

Sundi: Hashtag thesis statement. While Sam, Honeynuts, and Shitstain are in therapy, maybe Gretchen can get some too—she needs it more than Sam and Shitstain.

Season 2 | Episode 5 | “We Can Do Better Than This” | Aired Oct 7, 2015

Each week, EW Community contributors chat about the newest episode of You’re the Worst. This week, Tamar Barbash and Sundi Rose Holt chatted during the episode. Here are their thoughts as they watched “We Can Do Better Than This.”

Sundi: So … here’s to getting more “Jimmy at work.”
Tamar:
Poor Jimmy keeps winding up in meetings that are not what he thinks they are.
Sundi:
I love the melodrama of his reactions: Reacting to NCIS in an English accent might just be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.
Tamar:
LOL. And now Gretchen’s working, too?! What show is this?
Sundi: The interaction between Jimmy, Gretchen, and Edgar is a welcome addition. And Gretchen just called us out for being recap writers … ouch.

Tamar: Okay, so let’s dive in. Overall impressions?
