    I seem to be one of the odd ones that enjoy the summer shows, Netflix shows and premium channel show better than anything that the networks run during the fall seasons. I’d take game of thrones, walking dead, preacher, marco polo, orange is the new black, all the marvel shows, killjoys, hunters, the expanse and dark matter over any and EVERY network show any day of the week.
