Are Any of These Shows Worth Investing My Time?? Please Give Your Opinion Below

These shows have all been recommended to me...but I really don't have a lot of time to invest just to find out a show is really not that great ... What are your thoughts?
  1. Falling Skies
    Not like X-Files I'm guessing?? (I like the XFiles so I probably shouldn't compare the two??)
  2. House of Cards
    Because I told him of my West Wing obsession
  3. Gotham
    I love most of the Batman movies! Hell I love the original series with Adam West! Will I like this one?
