Around this time of year I always find myself in a show rut. There’s plenty to stream, of course, but hardly anything holds my interest. All the good shows are on hiatus, and the ones that aren’t feel painfully desperate. But there have been a few exceptions! All are ripped from the headlines, which means that after the last episode I stay up waaaay too late going down the Google rabbit hole.
Here are three I’ve enjoyed recently in case you’re searching for a late-summer escape...

At home Jojo's favorites are treats, belly rubs, and napping at your feet. Jojo has some mild anxiety, improved with medication. He is truly a little teddy bear who just wants to be loved. Jojo gets along well with his foster's resident senior dog and kitten. He would do best in a home where his space is respected by teens 14 and up.
