Our excitement about the fall TV lineup doesn't end with what's happening on the small screen. We're just as thrilled to get back to our habit of simultaneously sounding off on social media while watching our favorite shows. Thanks to "Black Twitter" we always have a steady stream of brilliantly amusing commentary on everything from Scandal to Sleepy Hollow. See why all-star TV recappers like Retta, Roland Smith, Awesomely Luvvie, and more, make watching TV so darn fun.
