We gave you five new TV shows to check out last month and we hope you listened to our advice and check them all out.
Now we’re going to get to the business end and let you know our top five best TV show premieres of 2016 (so far).
1. THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES (MTV)
Wow, did MTV shock us with this new show? We didn’t expect to fall in love with The Shannara Chronicles. From the very first episode, we were wowed with the amazing special effects, the storyline and the lead characters. And each episode that has aired every week since has been pretty top notch. Kudos to the writers for this brilliance.
2. THE X-FILES (FOX)
This 6-episode special tv event has just hit us with a blast of nostalgia. The X-Files, one of the most daring show of the 90’s, premiered with a whopping 50 million viewers worldwide. We were so glad to see Mulder and Scully back on our screens after 14 years, and we are craving more! The truth is still out there.
3. DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
If you love Arrow and The Flash, then this is the show for you. We personally LOVED the premiere. What could be better than a bunch of legends and meta-humans joining forces to stop the world from destruction? Nothing. Fast-paced, lots of action and time-travelling, we’re exciting to watch more.
4. THE 100
Although some might argue it wasn’t the best premiere, but when put together with Wanheda part 2, season 3 actually kicks off to a great start. After almost a year on hiatus, the season re-introduces the characters and how much they’ve changed in the three months since the battle with Mount Weather. Plus the episode brings back Lexa. Slay girl!
Twitter was divided between loving and hating the Shadowhunters premiere. Although a little too rushed at times, the show delivered solid performances from the actors/actresses. Fans of the book series by Cassandra Clare loved it regardless (well, most did). The storyline is good and very addictive if you pay attention properly.
What did you think of these premieres?
