March is coming to a close, which means we’re well overdue a check-in on our 2017 TV resolutions. This week, Noel and Kate report on how we’ve been doing with their goals to watch more anime and explore YouTube web series. First, however, we spend some quality time with our week in TV, starting with the genre offerings. Noel looks at the premiere of Into the Badlands, Noel and Kate gush over another beautiful Samurai Jack, we dive deep with the Supergirl/The Flash musical cross-over, and we agree to disagree on Legion. Next up are the comedies and dramas, including the return of Grace and Frankie, a crushing Superstore, a romantic Jane the Virgin, powerful episodes of The Americans and Underground, more soapy fun with Greenleaf, and a disappointingly pat The Good Fight.
How are you doing with your 2017 TV resolutions? Report on your progress, and how you’re feeling about the current TV offerings, in the comments below.
