In that case (since unlike probably everyone else who follows this podcast, I actually don't watch any anime - just a Digimon fan), I'll share what primetime/network/cable shows I'm excited about (which will also probably be different from most people). I'll categorize by genre:
- Marvel's Agents of Shield (season 3)
- The Flash (season 2)
- Arrow (season 4)
- Supergirl (series premiere)
I started Gotham, but found it was not my cup of tea. If I had Netflix, I'd probably watch Daredevil and/or Jessica Jones, but I might find I'd dislike it as I did Gotham. I love the first three for their different feels (although I'm getting very excited for a supposedly lighter-hearted season of Arrow), and I'm interested to see how CBS handles a DC superhero, and a female one at that. We shall see.
- The Middle (season 7)
- The Muppets (series premiere)
I love The Middle for how it takes relatable moments from our everyday lives and takes them to their furthest extent, giving it a good balance between reality and fiction in its reception. I also appreciate that it's a family-friendly show, yet adults don't feel like it's dumbed down for younger viewers. I have similar expectations for The Muppets, plus a big dash of nostalgia. I think it has the potential to be a great show, but it all depends on the show's execution. I hope it's amazing, and that Kermit and Miss Piggy get back together before either one does something that they'll regret. And, as I look at my in-depth analysis of puppet relationship, I'm going to go reevaluate my life priorities...okay, I'm back!
- The Amazing Race (season 27)
I have been watching this show for the majority of its run, and although I don't agree with everything the show stands for, I love how it gives us the tiniest snapshot of locations around the world and the everyday lives of people in those locations. Sure, there are bound to be misconceptions and generalizations made about what life is like in those places, but it brings an awareness to me of what a complex, intricate, and beautiful world we live in. And, of the reality shows out there, I think it tries to make a show that is characterized by excellence (thinking in terms of camerawork, editing - so many hours!!!, etc.), and that is something I have appreciated with Podigious! Our hosts do a great deal of work to make the very best product possible, and that is one of the main reasons I have stuck with and interacted with this podcast (besides my unexplainable love for Digimon).
Wow, that was long! Sometimes I just really want to do anything other than work on homework, including write an extremely lengthy forum post!
