Just wait until DeeDee shows up, then shit gets real in the laboratory.

Heroes Reborn: Better than seasons 3 and 4, not as good as 1 and 2. Pretty clumsy writing in places, but I have missed Heroes so I'll take it.

Jessica Jones: Mad heavy in places, but really rather good.

Better Call Saul is well overrated.

A decent enough watch but boring in parts and lacking the drama of Breaking Bad.

Finished Archer a few weeks back :( Started watching It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia as a replacement. Any good?

First season is slow, but from the moment Danny DeVito comes in it's pure gold. Favourite comedy show alongside peep show.

Yeah, I think I got about five episodes in before giving up on it.

I watched Over The Garden Wall over Christmas, and enjoyed it. It's got a really cool story, interesting characters, and a nice animation style. Christopher Lloyd's voice is in it too.

I thought Better Call Saul was bloody brilliant personally. I'm about to start the second season of Fargo at last, as well as catch up with the first couple of episodes of the new Agent Carter. As it stands, my favourite TV show of 2015 was a toss up between Ash Vs the Evil Dead and Mr Robot.

Ash vs Evil Dead

Went in assuming it was a bullshit cash in, but within the first 10 minutes of episode 1 you realise that the show runners get it.

Goofy and violent and Bruce Campbell-y to the max.

Super fun, super gory, super Evil Dead.

Watched the second season of Fargo which was great although I thought the finale a bit of a damp squib. Giving Vikings a go now after hearing great things, opening episode is quite promising.

Second season of Better Call Saul is available in a couple of days. Going to finish Dexter off with a bit of a marathon tonight/tomorrow.
