A sampling of the new and returning summer TV series TV Critic Hank Steuver grades, reviews and recommends to watch.
“Almost Royal,” BBC America Sundays at 10 pm. In this mockumentary, aristocrat siblings George and Poppy (Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart) travel to the United States because their late father, Lord Carlton of Caunty Manor, wanted them to experience life across the pond. Accompanied by a film crew, George and Poppy travel the United States. Though Gamble and Hoggart never break character, it’s difficult for viewers to know if the everyday folks that George and Poppy meet are onto the ruse or if the show is entirely scripted.
