End of the Year Fandom Meme

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2018?
The Gifted, Inhumans, Runaways, Cloak & Dagger, Stranger Things, Brooklyn 9-9, Disenchanted.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2018?
Star Trek. I'll pick it up again if Simon ever wants to. I tried The Dragon Prince on Netflix and didn't feel much, and same for Siren on Hulu.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2018? Why?
I can't believe it's taking Legion S2 so long to get to Hulu! You're killin' me here!

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2019?
Not sure about release dates for most of the new stuff; honestly, most of them that I can think of are probably more likely to hit in 2020 or later. If the Loki and Scarlet Witch series hit this year, I'm thinking I may have to wait anyway, because I don't think I want to shell out for Disney+ right away. But there's The Witcher, and maybe this will finally be the year for The New Warriors, and possibly I'll find my way into Relics & Rarities.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2018?
That's easy: Inhumans.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2019 unless things significantly improve?
Also easy: Disenchanted.

Which TV shows do you think you’ll never let go of no matter how crappy they get?
Anything in the MCU Netflix lineup, which is what I said last year, but now I'm clinging to the remaining shows extra hard. Marvel throughout the other networks is looking pretty good, too; I don't think I'd drop any of those.

Disney firing James Gunn. The wham-wham-wham cancellations of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and then -- excuse me but wtf -- Daredevil. Lack of crossovers in JJ S2 and Daredevil S3. The ugly side of the GotG fandom rearing its head. Most everything Star Wars-related.
