Welcome back fellow Gothamites, Defenders, Angels and Demons, Boys and Girls and fellow Watchers. We're taking a look back at all the shows we discussed last year and give a sneak peak at the new shows we're covering in next year. Join us for our 2019 Recap and 2020 preview podcast. All the shows we discussed in 2019 and one of the shows we'll be discussing in 2020. 1. Gotham: Season Five (Fox TV US) After five years and one hundred episodes our first ever show came to an end on Fox in 2019. We discussed the show for almost 150 episodes on Gotham TV podcast. Even though these twelve episodes we're perfect there were a lot of great moments for the cast we've loved talking about for six years. Goodbye Gotham 2. Punisher Season 2 (Netflix) It was also the second and final season of The Punisher on Netflix. As each of the Marvel Netflix shows finished we got closer and closer to the end of Defenders TV Podcast. Jon Bernthal totally embodied Frank Castle this year and we hope we see more of him in the future. Farewell Frank Castle 3. Good Omens (Amazon Prime) Based on a 1990 book written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett this was the first show we covered on Amazon Prime. From the casting of Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as his earthbound devilish counterpart Crowley this show was a fantastic endeavour. We loved every second of chatting about this show. 4. Jessica Jones Season 3 (Netflix) Jessica Jones was the final show commited to Netflix from Marvel. The main cast of Krysten Ritter, Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, Rebecca De Mornay and Carrie-Anne Moss were on top form throughout the season. With the addition of new office temp Gillian (Aneesh Sheth), possible love interest Erik Gelden (played by Benjamin Walker) and a new type of villain Sallinger (Jeremy Bobb) the show went out on a high. 5. Pennyworth Season 1 (EPIX) In July the creators of Gotham, Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon returned to the DC Batverse for a story of the early years of Alfred Pennyworth. Opening with a star making turn from Paloma Faith as Peggy Sykes the ten episode series was a blast. In a reimagined version of London we saw what the DC universe would do to the city. The show started slow but after a twist death in episode three it went from strength to strength. We're excited for season two in 2020. 6. The Boys (Amazon Prime) Based on the comic series from Garth Ennis Amazon made a bid for the most adult show of the year with The Boys. From flying dolphins to crashing planes Season 1 of the show was balls to the wall. But what surprised us was how much heart showrunner Erik Kripke was able to get out into the show. An absolute highlight of our year. 7. Watchmen (HBO and Sky Atlantic) It was an uphill battle for the Watchmen from the start. Based on a series of comic books that everybody from The New York Times to local comic shop owners have recommended for decades it was going to the be tough. But this sequel from Damon Lindelof and a team of extraordinary writers delivered far more than we all hoped. If this season is all we see from the Watchmen it will have been worth every moment. What's coming in 2020? Star Trek: Picard (Amazon Prime) From January 2020 we'll be going where we've never been before. We will be joining Patrick Stewart and his pit-bull discussing every episode about Star Trek Picard. We're so excited to see how the story of Jean-Luc Picard continues. The show will include special appearances from Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirts and Jeri Ryan but it is a brand new story in a new time for the characters. Engage!
