The first two months of 2015 are stuffed with new TV shows. They’re so densely packed that if new series were snow, you could make an igloo, a snow fort, a giant snowman and a pile of deadly ice balls to attack the neighbor kids.
Galavant | ABC, 7 p.m.
Fill up on eight hours of fairy tale-themed musical comedy in four weeks. Even the songs don’t take the material seriously, with lyrics like “You put the sir / in circumcision … ”

Better Call Saul | AMC, 9 p.m.
Better Be Good, more like. AMC’s highly anticipated “Breaking Bad” spinoff follows Bob Odenkirk’s early days as a sleazy ambulance chaser six years before he met up with Jesse Pinkman or Walter White. Fans are nervous: The only other “Breaking Bad” regular to return is Jonathan Banks, as Saul’s private investigator Mike Ehrmantraut. But the addition of Michael McKean as Saul’s brother Chuck can only be a good sign.
