Winter TV Premieres and Returns

The past month or so has been rough for us TV fans, as many of our favorite shows have been on hiatus and we’ve been anxiously awaiting the new shows premiering within the next few months. That said, it’s also given us plenty of time to catch up on or start shows that have been out for one or more seasons (Breaking Bad and Revenge for me. SO GOOD).
