Ever since the end of March break, when Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead finished their first and fifth seasons respectively, many people have struggled to find quality TV programming. The finales of Agents of Shield on May 12th, Arrow on May 13th, and Modern Family on May 20th further limited TV viewers’ options. Some people still can’t get over the fact that Breaking Bad is over, even though the finale was over a year and a half ago. As the volume of schoolwork decreases, find some time to binge-watch these popular shows in order to not miss out on the finales when they air.
Bones, a drama/comedy/ crime show on Fox whose finale airs on June 11th. Critics have consistently rated Bones among the top shows on television since its premiere in 2005. Set in Washington, D.C., the show revolves around solving Federal legal cases by examining the remains of possible murder victims. The show focuses on the partnership between forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. Together they solve crimes by analyzing human remains and investigating criminals, and the two generally investigate a new crime every episode. Starting with the death of one of the show’s primary characters in this season’s premiere and continuing with strained relations between Brennan and Booth, the show’s tenth season has so far been one of the most exciting yet. Be sure to stay tuned for its epic finale.
The season finale of Hell’s Kitchen, the one-of a-kind reality TV cooking competition hosted by the spirited Scottish-born chef Gordon Ramsay, airs on June 9th. On the show, twelve to twenty aspiring chefs travel to Hell’s Kitchen, a modified warehouse in Los Angeles that includes a restaurant, dual kitchen facilities and a dormitory where the chefs reside while working on the show. The chefs are split into two teams for various culinary competitions, and at the end of each episode, one of the members of the losing team is sent home. Currently four chefs remain : two having been executive chefs and two having been line cooks before joining the show. With only three episodes remaining in the fourteenth season, do not miss the finale of Hell’s Kitchen, in which the two finalists prepare an entire dinner service of their own to contend for $250,000 in addition to a job as an executive chef at a new restaurant.
The finale of Louie, a comedy-drama series on the FX network that critics have consistently included in their lists of the top ten shows on television, airs on May 28th. Since its debut in 2010, the show has starred comedian Louis C.K as a fictionalized version of himself as a comedian and divorced father raising his two daughters in New York City. The pieces depicting the fictional version of C.K’s life are interspersed with original segments of his stand-up comedy, in which he typically performs in Manhattan comedy clubs. Using a wide variety of comedic styles and subjects, Louie makes his show appeal to a wide audience. Though the majority of the episodes have stand-alone plots, there are common themes across the entire series. Currently in its fifth season, the show focuses more on the open relationship between Louie and his longtime love interest, Pamela Adlon. Although Louie typically attracts a mere 500,000 viewers for each episode, far less than Bones or Hell’s Kitchen, fans of the show wholeheartedly recommend it and advise everyone to catch this season’s finale.
