Shows come and go, but there are a few new, very promising-looking shows airing in the first two weeks of June that could be interesting. The first is about an all-girl Muslim band and the second is about a woman realizing she lives in a cheesy network sitcom where she isn’t the main character. The third is about a woman going into rehab after a rocky relationship ends, the fourth is about Juno Temple dancing the lambada, and the last is about Julianne Moore ramping up the creepiness in a Stephen King world. Lots of great choices to pick from.

This looks fantastic. I’m hoping it’ll fill the music-sized hole in my heart left by the criminal cancellation of High Fidelity.
Feel Good, Season 2
June 4, 2021 (Netflix)
If you haven’t seen the whip smart, 6-episode first season, please do so! It’s only three hours of your time! Season two looks to continue in that vein.
June 4, 2021 (Apple TV+)
From the twisted mind of Stephen King comes Julianne Moore in a story that looks creepy as hell. But Apple TV+ has been hitting everything out of the park lately, so maybe this is the next big thing.
June 6, 2021 (Starz)
If the number of people who swooned over Sam Heughan’s bod in Outlander is any indication, Starz has a line on earnest, tasteful erotica/mom porn. Juno Temple of Ted Lasso fame stars in this story of hot-ass loving in a forbidden time. Come for the smolder, stay for the body painting.
Warning: depending where you work, this clip may not be SFW!
Kevin Can F*ck Himself

The distinction between a goofy network sitcom and a dark thriller in the same show is an amazing concept. I’ve been looking forward to this for months.
