The TV world is starting to wind down for summer, but there’s still a few things to keep us busy. Let’s see what we think you should be watching.

The story revolves around the journey of 30-year-old Tom Chadwick (Chris O’Dowd), a man who has few roots, little family, and a somewhat unsure sense of his purpose in life. Having recently lost his job and girlfriend, Tom inherits a mysterious box of belongings from a great-aunt he doesn’t remember ever meeting, triggering a passion to investigate his family lineage. As Tom’s interest in genealogy grows, his life expands and evolves in unexpected directions, as he uncovers a world of unusual stories and characters in the U.K. and the U.S., as well as a growing sense of who he is and who his real family are.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Box,” Tom is bequeathed an old chest of curios; Tom seeks information about a black and white photo in the chest.

To watch this journey into Tom’s family tree begin, tune in to HBO at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching Once Upon a Time and Iron Chef America.
