This show is the NBC equivalent of BBC's Sherlock in terms of addict-ability. The Blacklist is full of drama and suspense enough to make you hold your breath, shout at your t.v. and groan once it's over because all you want is more. A big "thank you" to Netflix for putting all of the first season's 22 episodes but also #*%( you Netflix because now I have no life outside of watching The Blacklist to get ready for whatever season 2 may bring.
Witty and unpredictable. Sherlock keeps you guessing and, every time you think you know what's coming, something even more unexpected happens. This show will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you coming back for more. The only downside is how long we have to wait between seasons but it gives you time to watch it several times before the next season.
"Witches" is like a less trampy, more put together version of HBO's True Blood on a smaller budget. Sure the special effects aren't phenomenal, but for a Lifetime show "Witches" thoroughly exceeded my expectations.
Decent for a post-apocalyptic CW sci-fi but I could do with a lot less teen romance (I know, I know...what should I expect from CW?) The 100 isn't bad and definitely improved with season 2. I'll just be curious to see if the writers can keep up the intrigue and plot from being too convoluted or sloppy or this will see a quick cancellation.
This is Syfy's fairly well-executed apology for the cancellation/ending of Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. There is the perfect blend of campy sci-fi and drama to keep even an unseasoned sci-fi fan guessing and waiting for the next plot twist. Though there are quite a few (a LOT actually) of similarities between this show and other previous Syfy hits, Dark Matter stands on it's own with decent acting and good writers. I'm just hoping they can stay away from being too predictable to create what they think fans want and go for originality and a quality stand-alone show. Plus, it never hurts to have Wil Wheaton as a seasoned actor to bring it all together.
If you are open-minded, like a little sci-fi mixed with romance and drama then this show is for you. Gets a little cringe-worthy on occasion (or at least awkward) when watching with parents or significant other but the drama and sci-fi behind is are great and have a lot of potential for the story to delve into.
The Fall is a dark, disturbing guilty pleasure that will leave you asking "What did I just watch?" and possibly wanting a shower afterwards. The acting is so surreal and believable while the cliffhangers are deadly. Gillian Anderson is a fantastic lead and gives a refreshing look at a some-what played out premise of cop dramas.
