So I'm always the last one to know about a good show* (not counting Homeland and The Following, both of which I've watched from the start, and am obsessed with). I jumped on the Dexter bandwagon around season 5. Breaking Bad around season 3. Let me tell you, it takes a lot of waking hours to catch up on seasons and seasons of television.
So in an effort to help you out, I found a new show I really love, although it's much more cheese than the aforementioned shows. It's called Reign and it's on the CW Thursdays at 9pm. It's basically a soap opera-y show about Mary, Queen of Scots. A period piece, but not. Think Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, only not as good (am I selling this show or what!?!?).
*Full disclosure: I've never watched an episode of the following supposedly epic television shows: The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, Lost, 24, Sons of Anarchy, etc. Start your judging........NOW!
