Catching up on some TV shows

I do not watch a whole lot of Television.I watched a ton when I was a kid but once I turned 18 or so I never did.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy watching TV, I just never do. It may have something to do with my ADD.
The bride and I  watched Elementary religiously for the first couple of seasons, but it got boring and predictable.
I do watch The Blacklist, but that is more of a commitment since I do a weekly podcast on it (check it out over at

Ok, to the point...I have been watching/catching up on a number of shows via Netflix. I have noticed a trend in what I seem to enjoy.
Comic shows and unconventional cop shows. I will go into each. briefly.

Comic Shows 
  • Arrow
  • Flash
  • Agents of Shield
  • DareDevil
  • Jessica Jones
  • Luke Cage
I have no idea why I enjoy these so much, I got into Arrow because of the eye candy, but it turned out I really enjoyed it. Flash was a reasonable successor since they are related. I am trying to get caught up on Legends of Tomorrow as well, but it just is not as good and I do not like the characters as much.
AoS, DD, JJ, and LK are all in the Avengers world and all slightly related, so they are kind of fun to watch. I loved the avengers movies. I current own all of them in one form or another except CA:1stA.

Unconventional Cop shows
  • Longmire
  • Luther
These are unconventional in different ways. Longmire is just a good old fashioned detective show. Very little CSI, just lots of character and who dunnits. It still follows the formula but I like that it focuses on story other than the pseudo science.
Luther is just an unconventional cop. You cannot call him a bad cop, or a cop out for true justice, or a cop who believes the end justifies the mean... just unconventional.
