I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.

Of course they'll list all of their shows. This list is incomplete and irrelevant without including Breaking Bad.

But, they have Fuller House and The Ranch on there, so that makes up for it. /s
