From the time I can remember until, say, my mid 20s I was a serious television addict – I could have told you, generally anyway, what was on prime time network TV on every night of the week and my schedule for watching it. Plus, in the years when I had cable I usually had a syndicated show or two that I was dedicated to (my seventh grade self pretty much planned her life around the twice daily showings of Airwolf on the USA network – I wish I was kidding.)
Then I grew up a little and the tv landscaped changed. I still had my shows – things like Gilmore Girls, and Lost, and Castle – but nothing that really made me cross the line from reasonable adult fan to tv fangirl addict. Plus, viewership changed with Hulu and DVR and Netflix. So I thought I was past all that.
But maybe not.
This television season I will have six shows that are must watch for me every week – yep, six. And five of the six? They are, of course, superhero shows.
Thank goodness I have a DVR – or I’d never leave the house.
