We’re nearing the end of the TV season and three of our regular shows have run their finales. Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) are only discussing Gotham, Agents of SHIELD, and Arrow this week. But first they tackle the upfront news from 4 of the 5 broadcast networks, including renewals, cancellations and new comic book shows. This week’s Things That They Found Interesting looks a tiny bit at one of the new showsfor next fall and the universe changing in the worlds of the floppies.

We’re back, True Believers, just like a few of our shows, thought this issue has taken a lot longer to post than it should have. Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) first discuss the news and renewals coming out of the the Television Critics Association winter tour. This includes Daredevil hitting the streets, iZombie setting its first course, Supergirl definitely taking flight and Vixen going on the prowl. In casting news, Spartacus creates a storm, Admiral Adama takes up a new SHIELD, and Hector Salamanca makes a deal with the devil, and perhaps Nightwing gets a new face. They then discuss the mid season premieres of Gotham and Agent Carter plus a bit on the Ant-Man trailer. They each end by picking a Thing That They Found Interesting, which really is just a way to talk about all the shows they binge watched over the holidays, which included shows from HBO, FX, Cinemax, The CW, ABC, BBC, Amazon and Netflix.
