Absentia, Season 2 (Amazon Original series) (available 6/14)
This crime drama starring Stana Katic as Emily Byrne, an FBI agent who was declared dead after going missing for several years, returns for its long-awaited second season. After partially recovering from her memory loss and finding the strength to hunt down and kill her abductor, Season 2 sees Byrne trying to adjust to life back in society. But because normalcy proves difficult as she continues to suffer from trauma, the heroine works with another detective to attempt to solve the mystery of her own dark past, which she still can't recall.
Airplane! (available 6/30)
Airplane! is, quite simply, one of the funniest movies ever made. Devised by the jokesters behind The Naked Gun, this disaster-movie spoof stuffs every second of runtime with a physical gag (The nun slapping a hysterical woman!), dimwitted wordplay ("Don't call me Shirley"), an uncomfortable moment of odd behavior ("Joey, have you ever seen a grown man naked?"), or some other asinine bit. It's the rare comedy that demands repeat viewings, just to catch every micro-sized joke and memorize every line.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (available 6/30)
Anchorman gets most of the credit and praise as the pinnacle of Will Ferrell's blockbuster movie career, but Talladega Nights is worthy of comparison. As Ricky Bobby, the loud-mouthed, Coke-swigging, Southern-fried NASCAR driver, Ferrell critiques and celebrates a certain sector of American life. In his journey of understanding, Ricky even comes to love French gay driver Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen). You might not want the world to be like Talladega Nights, but given where things currently stand, the Ricky Bobby version of America might be a (slight) improvement.
