In Case You Missed It

Television is an ever-changing landscape. From the early days of sitcoms and procedurals, to serialized dramas like Lost and 24 taking over in the early 2000s, to an obsession with antiheroes, to the current state of streaming that has every type of show you can think of, there’s a lot of content out there to go around. What to choose can be a herculean task in and of itself that sometimes takes so long you give up and watch something familiar instead. Television is an ever-changing landscape.
