I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.

I think the only one of my list that's already gone is The Americans. And if I'm honest, as much as I love the show it was not a lock for my list this year. Too much strong competition.

Kind of crazy to see Veep fall so far. I fell off it myself this year, guess I wasn't the only one.

Yes, do not spend your time on this. Netflix have ill-advisedly commissioned a second season but it is not worth your time. Spend it on happier pursuits such as holding hands with a loved one under the blossoming trees of spring. Or alternatively, ice cream.
