Need help deciding what shows to pay attention to this month?
Shonda Rhimes' latest, Still Star-Crossed, will debut on May 29 after The Bachelorette. The story of what happened with the Montagues and Capulets after the deaths of their beloveds, Romeo and Juliet, bears watching.
Here are some other shows you should try watching.
I Love Dick: The writers of I Love Dick, an adaptation of Chris Kraus' 1997 novel, are all women, led by award-winning director Jill Soloway (Transparent).
It's more than appropriate.
Kevin Bacon stars as the the titular character, a peculiar artist-slash-cowboy who falls under the "Female Gaze" of Chris (Kathryn Hahn, Transparent). Chris' plans were to drop off her husband, Sylvere (Griffin Dunne of Dallas Buyers Club), who has been granted a residency at Dick's Institute of Marfa, on her way to Venice for a film festival. But when plans change, the down-on-her-luck (read: unhinged) Chris is instantly smitten, then angry, then obsessed with Dick after he dismisses her femininity, her art, and by extension, her self. So, she decides to stay.
And write letters to Dick, ones that start out as private missives but then go public. What follows is a wonderfully weird, sometimes comedic, often strange mashup of New York angst, weird Texas gumption and an eye-opening look at feminism.
To quote Chris: "Is it weird that this is not at all what I expected?" See for yourself when the series is released May 12 on Amazon Prime Video.
Lucifer: He's back from a self-imposed exile, and he's brought along a stripper-turned-wife by the name of Candy? Yep, that's how the Lord of Hell returns to Los Angeles after Chloe's near-death experience shakes, rattles and kills him (but only for a few minutes). The series, back for its spring shows, airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Twin Peaks: It's a numbers game. And, as is anything by auteur David Lynch, they are numbers shrouded in intrigue. We know there are 18 episodes that happen 25 years after what has become one cult classic, or one classic cult; you decide. The show was quirky, dark and wonderfully weird before all that was cool, and one can expect more of the same. Need to know where the CW's Riverdale got its cues? Start here, or with the first two seasons available on Showtime's website and On Demand. The series reboots on May 21 at 8 p.m. on Showtime.
The Carmichael Show: Always topical and thought-provoking, series creator Jerrod Carmichael's sometimes functional family returns to make you think so hard that you laugh (and sometimes the other way around) on Wednesday, May 31, at 8 p.m. on NBC.
