  1. Such a TV Nerd and really looking forward to some of these returning and new series.

    Started watching Future Man in the summer but fell behind on it after a few episodes, with the new season on I figure I’ll just start it again from the 1st episode. Really crazy and hilarious gem.

    So looking forward to the new season of True Detective. Sounds like an interesting season.

    I Am The Night seems like a really good thriller. Can’t wait to see Chris Pine on a TV Series.


    1. Future Man looks insane. It’s gone completely under my radar up until now, so I’m going to have to binge watch my way through the first season so I can watch the second as it’s released. And I completely agree, both the latest season of True Detective and I am the Night look super interesting so I’m looking forward to some major thriller action there.

  2. Well, I think for me what I am looking forward to this January is Punisher Season 2 and Kingdom, which is a Korean historic/fantasy/zombie thing coming out the week after Punisher.n Am hoping that since we got Titans after its run was complete on the DC streaming service we will also get swamp thing later in the year


    1. I think Punisher is probably the show I’m most looking forward to seeing. I’ve never heard of Kingdom though, so I’m going to have to add that to my watch list – a fantasy zombie show sounds right up my street. Is it dubbed or subtitles?

      1. I imagine it will be both, but if my experience of netflix dubbing tells me anything then, subtitled is the way to go. The trailer is on netflix and youtube if you are interested


        1. It looks pretty epic. Would definitely watch it with the subtitles though. The last time I watched a foreign series was Dark, and I had to go back to the beginning half way through to switch to subtitles because the dubbing was so off putting.

    1. I absolutely loved the first season of Sabrina, which shocked me because I was quite nervous about it. Do you know when the second season is going to be released?


    1. I never watched the original Roswell, but I’ve always wanted to, so figured this one could be a good alternative. Plus, it’s by the same people who created Vampire Diaries/Originals, and I actually really enjoyed both those series – even if they were a bit cheesy.


  3. Emma what a Great post, I loved Luther, I really can’t wait for The Punisher this week and very curious to find out more about the Passage. Big vampire fan.

    Really good read. Good job.


    1. Thanks Ross – I’m really glad you liked the post. I am so unbelievable excited for The Punisher, so I know how you feel. I was going to make plans this weekend but decided I’d rather stay in and binge watch the entire series.

      1. I am with you on that plan. I love bingeing but then the downside is, its gone very quickly. I try to pace myself but it never works.


  4. I am very excited for The Punisher S2!
    And Deadly Class looks interesting. I think I’ll wait and see what the reviews are for that one first, though.


    1. I’m sooo.. excited fo Punisher – only one more day and its binge time. Yay! And I agree, it’s always great to get the vibe of a show before you watch it by reading reviews, I do that for most things. But then I completely ignore them and watch anyway, haha.


    1. I’ve just started re-watching the first season, so I think I’ll make my way through that first then decide whether to go straight onto 3 or watch the second season too
