As always, I’ll post a list of what I’ve read/watched over the past month, and in some cases, provide some commentary. If there’s anything you’re interested in or curious about, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments, and I’ll be happy to talk further!

So, if you’re interested in hearing about the following shows, keep on reading! No spoilers, I promise! 🙂

Continuum, season one
Cougar Town, season four
Homeland, season one
Justified, season four
The Walking Dead, season three
