With Breaking Bad and Dexter both in their final seasons (and True Blood having recently announced it’ll soon be ending too), it’s probably time to start thinking about a new series. After all, what better way to waste a weekend than with a series marathon? Don’t think too hard, because there is none.
The real question, then, is where should you start? The answer to this question all depends on your preferences. Whether you love twisted fairy tales, sci-fi mysteries, inappropriate animations, horror cult themes, or hip comedies, this fall line-up of TV in the US has a little bit of something for everyone.
Another determining factor for your show choice depends on your dedication and attention span. You can jump into in the middle of some series (like the Simpsons) without ever having watched a previous episode. Or you can get that fall pale complexion back by marathoning previous seasons in anticipation of the big premiere. View shows you’ve missed, want to recap, or start anew. And if you don’t have time to watch the backlog, but desire to follow a winding plot, there some new shows will be beginning as well.
Personality and motivation, of course, will be the final deciding factors on the shows you end up watching this Fall. Use the decision-modeling infographic below to see which geeky fall TV show you need to tune in to:
