Couch Avocados: TV Discussion Thread

Welcome to the weekly TV thread! As I’ve long said going back to the earliest days online doing this, one cannot live on anime alone. And compared to twenty years ago, there’s so much more content out there now and so much more to talk about. This coming week of new shows brings us to the latest week of regular TV and a number of premieres. I look forward to getting way too many suggestions about good shows to check out!

Optional discussion topic: In honor of Foundation coming out this week, what classic SF novel do you want to see get a modern adaptation?

Coming this week: There are a lot of shows that have their premieres over the next week. What are you excited about?
