Why you should watch: If you can muster sympathy for a bunch of mostly white people fighting and fretting over issues around their cottages, then this is the show for you. Canadian-made The Lake has a reach exceeding its grasp. It’s an interesting premise: a white, gay man who gave up his BIPOC daughter in high school is reunited with her for the summer in effort to bond. Wish it was more funny and less whiny.
