Listen to the latest episode of TV times Three: Ep.314, “Spring TV Preview 2016.” On this episode I am joined by @kyool and @Dorv to preview the 2016 Spring TV Schedule with premiere dates of new and returning shows and then we talk a bit about which ones look good and we are most looking forward to. Plus, we talk about recent episodes of Quantico, The Magicians and Limitless and then close out with some TV recommendations.

I was also a guest on The Televerse Podcast Ep.237 for the DVD Shelf segment to talk about Northern Exposure, which is one of my all-time favorite shows.
