Let’s face it ― it’s spring, that time of year when things are supposed to be fresh and blooming. Except in pop culture. We’re in the doldrums, movie-wise, in that period between award season and summer blockbusters ― Oz The Great And Powerful was heavy on style but short on substance, and Spring Breakers is getting a ton of buzz but very mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike. Even Justin Timberlake’s massive-selling comeback to music hasn’t been a total slam dunk. And with network TV offering things like D-List Celebs Jumping In Water ― sorry, it’s actually called Splash ― there’s not a whole lot to get jazzed about there, either.
Luckily, there’s a hero on the way ― cable! Many of our faves are returning to TV on AMC, HBO, and the like, providing us with plenty of entertainment right in the comfort of our own homes. In fact, some of the very best shows on TV debut new seasons in March, April, and May, so we can collectively sigh with relief and know we won't have to resort to, like, reading books or anything. Hooray for cable!
Here are the six shows we're dying for this spring!
