TV Show Meme

Ashley Thomas, fellow Mythgardian and nerdy blogger, linked to a TV show meme that seems like fun. Although I can be notoriously slow and behind the times when catching up with current TV shows (as with books, I’m often inclined to re-read/view rather than start something new) I have become increasingly interested in the craft of television, especially as we’ve entered what looks like a golden age of the medium, as argued by TV critic Alan Sepinwall among others. So for fun and as a critical exercise, I’m going to try to go through the meme prompts one by one. A few notes/disclaimers:

  • As usual, life is busy at the moment (although I actually have legit excuses this time). These will likely not be posted daily, but I do intend to finish eventually.
  • I will try to spread things about as much as possible so as to include more shows. This means there will be the occasional cheat/tie, I will include honorable mentions, and in some cases I may choose slightly lesser examples so as to include more variety. In most cases I could conceivably go in several different directions.
  • This is intended to spark thought, discussion, and debate. If you agree or disagree, let me know! If you can’t believe I’ve never seen your all time favorite show, tell me why I should watch it (and I will probably seek it out).

If you want to play along, here are the categories:

Day 01 – A show that should have never been cancelled
Day 02 – A show that you wish more people were watching
Day 03 – Your favorite new show (aired this t.v season)
Day 04 – Your favorite show ever
Day 05 – A show you hate
Day 06 – Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show
