Channel Surfing: Awesome TV picks for the week of 05/06/2024

It’s the first full week of a new month and with it comes a new batch of our Channel Surfing TV picks.

It’s the first full week of a new month and with it comes a new batch of our Channel Surfing TV picks. Get to the bottom of a mystery in a small town in Bodkin. A new doctor and companion are set to begin their first season on Doctor Who. Then, travel to the Old World in season two of Interview with the Vampire

Small Town, Big Secrets

Bodkin follows a trio of podcasters that visit the titular Irish village to investigate several disappearances that occurred 25 years ago. The deeper they go in their quest for the truth, the weirder the facts become.

Will Forte, Siobhán Cullen, Robyn Cara, David Wilmot, and Chris Walley star. The show is created by Jared Scharf, who also serves as executive producer and co-showrunner with Alex Metcalf. Barack and Michelle Obama, Tonia Davis, Nne Ebong, and David Flynn and Paul Lee also are executive producers.

Stream the first season of Bodkin beginning Thursday, May 9, on Netflix. 

A New Doctor and Companion, Same Time Traveling Fun

We first met the Fifteenth Doctor in the 60th Anniversary episode, “The Giggle,” and his companion, Ruby Sunday, in the following Christmas special. Now, the pair are ready for their first full series.

The Doctor and Ruby will travel throughout time and space including the Regency era in England as well as war-torn worlds in the future. On their adventures they will meet plenty of new friends and cross paths with scary foes such as a real life boogeyman and perhaps the strongest enemy the Doctor has ever faced.

The latest season of Doctor Who premieres Friday, May 10, on Disney+.

Across the Sea

When we last left Interview with the Vampire, the relationship between Lestat and the vampires he turned, Louis and Claudia, becomes so strained that the latter eventually betray their maker. With Lestat out of the way, the pair have the freedom to do what they want.

In the second season, Louis and Claudia leave their home of New Orleans to travel to Europe. There, they they become acquainted with Old World Vampires and the Theatre Des Vampires in Paris. We will also discover of how the romance between Louis and Armand first began and its destructive consequences it has both in the past and the future.

Interview with the Vampire season two beings Sunday, May 12, on AMC.
