We Are the Watchers on the Couch

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my eyes become blurry and I need some sleep. 

Currently Airing/ Recently Released

The Expanse (Syfy): The future has many scary things, some of which are human. Based on the book series by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck.

Powerless (NBC): Tech nerds work at a Bruce Wayne company to design protection for regular citizens, to help them survive all the superhero/villain battles.

A Series of Unfortunate Events (Netflix): A tragic comedy following three orphans and an evil actor. Based on the books by Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler).

Legion (FX): Based on the Marvel comics, this show starts off crazy, following a mutant who thinks he’s crazy. It is gorgeous and I’m excited for more, although I’m still confused about a few million things from the first episode.

Face Off: All Stars (Syfy): Special effect make-up competition.

The Magicians (Syfy): Quentin and friends try to save the world from the Beast. Based on the Magician Series by Lev Grossman.

Homeland (Showtime): Carrie Mathison fights to keep the world safe from terrorists.

Antiques Roadshow (PBS): Experts inspect items to see if they are treasure.

Critical Role (Geek & Sundry): Do you have 4 hours every Thursday? Good. Then you need to be watching some of the best voice actors roll dice, improv their faces off, and generally act ridiculous, often with reckless disregard for their D&D characters’ safety. You’ll never see tabletop RPGs the same way again.
