Hollywood's summer-long barbecue should be a raucous affair. The guest list includes the funny-but-obnoxious basement dwellers from across the street (The Hangover Part III), a zombie or two (World War Z), the quirky girl from down the block (Frances Ha), the high-brow couple from next door (Much Ado About Nothing) and a super fellow who will stick around to clean up (Man of Steel).
But at the risk of being unsociable, sometimes you just want to send your regrets, skip the barbecue and stay put for the evening. In that spirit, our summer screen guide allows you a week-to-week option to "go big" on the silver screen, or to "go home," watching something in your living room. This summer's small screen offerings are pretty swell, with a few farewells (Bad Blood, Dexter, Futurama), some new kids on the block (Animation Domination, Owners Manual) and some of television's best dramas (The Killing, The Newsroom).
