It's that time of year again.

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2014?
How To Get Away With Murder, Helix, Agents of Shield, Orange is the New Black, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Broad City.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2014?
I'm letting go of Game of Thrones. It's just been going downhill for a while now and I've been teetering on the decision on stopping for some time, and after reading some really disturbing things about what D&D have done and are planning for S5 I just can't anymore. I am not here for them grossly justifying rape scenes and having recently-turned-legal actresses to have explicit sex scenes/rape scenes and the unnecessary exploitation of women and erasure of minorities and vital characters of the series. I like the ASOIAF universe, just not with this show anymore.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2014? Why?
Plenty. Outlander and The 100 are two shows that everyone has been praising, but I just haven't gotten around to watching them yet. Mostly due to procrastination and because I already have so many shows to catch up on as it is. Selfie was one I was curious about since I'd seen so many people say how cute it was (and how adorable Karen Gillan and John Cho were together), but it got canceled, however the entirety of the show is still on Hulu I believe so I may check it all out soonishly. Jane the Virgin is another, and interestingly I wasn't going but I changed my mind after realizing all the promotion was false advertising and it's actually really an amazingly cute show. Also Carmilla, which is a webseries modern adaptation of the novella of the same name, and it has been praised by many people. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise had it not been for Tumblr, and I really want to check all of it out. And I will, when I get the chance, a.k.a. not procrastinating.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2015?
The shows I mentioned above. Agent Carter, of course. Galavant, the half-hour fantasy musical comedy that looks utterly ridiculous in the best kind of cracky way. And some others I'm sure I'm forgetting, both new and ones that have been on my queue for a while.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2014?
Warehouse 13. It was such an amazing show until those last six episodes, which was hugely disappointing on so many levels. I felt cheated and duped by the fact that the show did the exact opposite of what they series was supposed to have been about, especially with characterizations and relationships. The only good thing that came from it was Claudia becoming the Caretaker of the Warehouse. Other than that, those last six episodes don't exist. Just, ugh. Why show, why? Honorable mentions goes to Game of Thrones, Sleepy Hollow, the latter half of Lost Girl's S4, which I can only hope that their last season can make up for.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2015 unless things significantly improve?
Probably Sleepy Hollow. The first season was fantastic, but the second season has been lacking so much that, aside from the little cute Ichabod/Abbie moments, it doesn't feel like that show I enjoyed from the previous season. It really needs to start improving quick.

Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?
Pretty Little Liars. I mean, already there are things that I'm really getting tired of and things I wish the writers would acknowledge and not be repetitive of in terms of the storytelling and with certain subplots, and not really following through with what they reveal. But I'm too sucked into what is happening. I've been following this show for five seasons now and I know they've been renewed for two more, and while I'm wishing they would just hurry up with resolving the main mystery of things I'm going to be with this show for the long haul. I just cannot let it go.

Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2014?
How To Get Away With Murder. Best new show of this year, to be honest.

Your main fandom of the year?
The Hobbit. One of the best fandoms I've been involved in and was a seriously saving grace for me, personally speaking. It's been one of the best fandoms I've joined during these last two years. ♥ ♥ ♥
