New Summer TV Sci Fi: June 2015


I’m interested in Humans because I never tire of robots trying to take over humans. The two Syfy shows look like they would be fun and not too taxing on the brain, which is always nice for a summer series. I’m intrigued by the new Netflix series Sense 8 not because it is by the Matrix siblings (mostly because they haven’t done anything really good lately), but I really like it when shows shoot on location. The location and an interesting premise has me willing to check it out. I’m not sure about Zoo. I really like James Wolk, but it seems more like the premise to a movie rather than a series. I feel like the it would be stretched out and become boring quickly.
