If you think there have been too many shows on television to keep up with, it’s not your imagination. There were more scripted television shows in 2015 than in the history of television. While half of me is exhilarated by the fact that sci-fi has taken its place in the mainstream, the other half is a little overwhelmed by the amount of choice. Now your choices are even more overwheming: January 2016 is airing nine, count 'em, nine new genre shows. (#nerdworldproblems)
I’ve come up with an overview of these series -- most of which, mercifully, have truncated first seasons -- to help you set your television-watching schedule. Note that this guide does not include returning shows, like Agent Carter, Sleepy Hollow, Arrow, Flash, which brings us to a total of 25 freakin’ genre shows. All. in. January. (#nerdalert).
Or better yet, watch them all, particularly if you own Dish’s new Hopper 3, which can record 16 channels at once. In which case, enjoy your eyeball-searing television experience. (#nerdvana)
