I've been pretty excited for this one to start (which is funny because I've never seen Veronica Mars, but I read the premise after hearing Dan Feinberg mention that a show called iZombie was going to exist and I totally got sucked in by the imdb summary). I wasn't let down, particularly after reading from a couple of people that it only gets better from here. It was a really fun hour of television. I like the characters and the show seems pretty charming and fun and it feels like they've made an interesting little rabbit hole. I'm in!
Side note: I know I'm not the first to say it, but if you told me two years ago that I would be watching 4 hours a week of CW programming (which is basically more than any other two channels not called AMC combined) I would have said you were nuts. Not to mention that I really enjoyed the first 3 or 4 episodes of Jane the Virgin and may catch up on that at some point and people keep saying that the 100 is really good.
It's true (though I don't have Cinemax, which shows are you watching there? Banshee is Cinemax, right?), I've never watched fewer movies than I do these days. Who has the time with all of this amazing television. At no other point in my life could I have said that. I mean there are shows currently that I don't have time to watch that would have been appointment television for pretty much any other point in my life. It's crazy.
I didn't realize that the Knick was Cinemax. Crazy. Banshee has been on the list for a while, at least picking up season 1 and giving it a look. I keep hearing great things about Sparticus too.
