Get Ready For Fall TV {2016}

TV shows are no longer watched on only traditional stations or televisions anymore (hello Netflix and iPads!), which is great for people who don't have a TV, but bad for people who like to keep up with everything, like me. But since I can't watch everything or I would I would never have time to read or sleep, I'm going to watch the few that interest me the most.

I'm most looking forward to The Crown, Designated Survivor, The Good Place, Falling Water, Luke Cage, Incorporated, Timeless, and Van Helsing. I don't know if I'll stick with all of these, but I'm always willing to give a show an episode or two to woo me. 

DRAMA
