I went for Jessica Jones and Scandal! The former is excellent and the latter is pure Shonda magic.

This the toughest of all the groups for me. sad.gif

I've gone with Homeland and Jessica Jones in the end which is appropriate as they're probably two of the shows I've been most gripped and shocked by!

Homeland had me constantly on the edge of my seat for the first two seasons as well as many other episodes that followed. It was sort of my first proper foray into more adult US drama and it will always hold a special place in my heart. As I said, the first two series were truly brilliant, it has wavered since then but everytime it has a run of disappointment, it brings me back with a series of killer episodes.

Jessica Jones, as I've said many many times before, is a truly brilliant season of TV and one of my favourites ever. I was really gripped throughout and it had a brilliant dynamic between its hero and its villain, resulting in the best villain of the MCU!

The one that I really REALLY want to vote for as well is Doctor Foster as it is a perfect character drama. Not one character is perfect in it, helping to show a 'real' portrayal of humanity. It has beautiful writing and acting and the Season 1 finale was possibly the best finale TV has seen. (gah makes me wish I'd voted for it now!)

13 Reasons Why and Jessica Jones

Doctor Foster would've been there in place of Jessica Jones but the second series was absolutely diabolical.

Pretty much this (I think I fell off the Scandal wagon midway through season 4 and never got back on, but those first three seasons were amazing and I watched/enjoyed more of it than Homeland which would be my third pick)

eek this looks to be a fierce battle for the second qualifier, three shows all with 6 votes each! I said it was a tough group!

Still 3 days to go so could all change!

'Scandal' HAS to go through in this round! Season six was the best since about the second or third although what I've seen of the seventh isn't quite up to it so far. Also voted for '13 Reasons Why'.
