What do you think of FOX's Lucifer at the start of season two? Are you enjoying NBC's Timeless? Do you agree that FOX's Brooklyn Nine-Nine/New Girl crossover was weak? Do you like ABC's Speechless as much as Jason does? Do you agree that NBC's The Blacklist has lost its way in season four? Is there a show you'd like us to talk about?
