When I was a young slip of a lad, there was plenty of sci-fi TV shows. Babylon 5. The various iterations of Star Trek. X-Files. Millennium. And hands up who remember the likes of Dark Skies, Ultraviolet (a curious British vampire show) and loads of others in the ealry to mid 90s when sci-fi was the 'in' thing.
Then there was a dip. Reality TV became king and the sci-fi/genre show became something of a rare thing.
But now sci-fi and genre are back. The Flash. Gotham. Daredevil. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Even The X-Files.
And I haven't seen any of them. It's hard to make the commitment to one show let alone plenty. But in 2015 I aim to try and get through some of them. A little bird makes it known that I have season 1 of Gotham in my Xmas Stocking (and to be fair, season one of True Detective as well..... I hope the winter is cold to justify spending all my time indoors....)
