Each month I look for TV shows, movies, and events to look forward to.
NOS4A2, a new horror series based on Joe Hill’s terrifying novel about a woman who battles a supernatural killer and has her own unusual way of finding things.
Luther returns for a 5th season on BBC America, with Ruth Wilson back to reprise her popular character Alice.
The Oslo Killing, a new true crime docu-series from Sundance, chronicling the 40 year investigation of Anni Nielsen Iranzo’s murder.
Legends of the Deep, docuseries from the Science Channel, following Céline and Fabien Cousteau as they pursue mysteries in the ocean deep.
Jupiter at Opposition. The planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and will be brighter than any other time of the year, staying visible all night long. This is the best time to view Jupiter, a good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.
The second season of AXN’s crime procedural Absentia, is available in the US via Amazon Prime streaming.
The revival of CW’s long running improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway? is back for a 7th season.
Full Moon. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Strawberry Moon because it signaled the time of year to gather ripening fruit. It also coincides with the peak of the strawberry harvesting season.
Horror movie Child’s Play in theaters. Some genius counter-programming to the release of Toy Story 4 the same weekend, if the movie is as good as its marketing campaign, it stands a chance of being more than just a tired retread. Especially since it has Mark Hamill’s voice work going for it.
June Solstice, marking the formal start of summer.
The second season of the time twisting thriller Dark is streaming on Netflix.
