335 0

The Winter TV season is just about over and the Spring TV season is about to begin. With almost every show that disappears from our TV schedules as they wrap up their season or go into their mid-season break, a brand new show or new season of an already existing show will pop up to replace it. So many of them in fact, that it can be a bit daunting to go through everything to see what’s worth your precious time. So we did that for you! At least in the arena of scripted programming.

We’ve looked at new season of existing TV shows and now we’re going to look at the shiny new ones that we have no previous experience with, but think have potential to be something great – or at the very least, enjoyable.
