Comic Television #3 – Week Beginning 29 February 2016!
As usual, we have another installment of Comic Television for you. This week unfortunately, there’s no Flash or Arrow but there’s plenty of other dramas that are totally worth watching, such as the season finales of both The Shannara Chronicles and Marvel’s Agent Carter, as well as the return of series like Gotham and Blindspot, starring Thor’s Jaime Alexander. It should be an interesting week for sure.
