This summer I binge watched HAWAII FIVE-O (all 7 seasons) and loved it — great ensemble cast, over-the-top action, great dialogue. It was an all-around fun cop show. Then I binge watched BLUE BLOODS (all 7 seasons) and also loved it. Different than HAWAII FIVE-O, but also with a strong ensemble cast and also a cop show. (Yes, I love my cop shows — always have, always will.)
But when I finished BLUE BLOODS, I realized I had nearly a month (or longer!) to wait until all my favorite shows returned. The 8th season of both of these shows; ARROW; WALKING DEAD; BETTER CALL SAUL; iZOMBIE; GOTHAM; and more. A few that I’ll watch though I’ve kind of lost the love for (SUPERNATURAL, NCIS, FLASH). But truly, I’m mostly looking forward to a few Netflix Originals that I fear I’m going to have to wait nearly forever to see (read: a year or more) … specifically, JESSICA JONES and DAREDEVIL.
So I was checking out what was on Netflix because when I’m done writing for the night, I really like to watch an episode or two of television to unwind. I discovered two shows, both based on graphic novels, that I was stunned I’d never heard of before. VAN HELSING (Netflix Original) and WYNONNA EARP (SyFy). I’m in the middle of binging both and will be done before the weekend because I have them downloaded to my trusty little iPad for my trip to NOLA tomorrow. Both are created from a graphic novel universe.
