It seems to me that what I feel to be the best shows on television are frequently underrated in terms of both publicity and viewers.
I'm a huge fan of Fringe and Supernatural, and also watch UK shows such as Being Human and Misfits. But where's the love? Leonard Nimoy has been a guest star playing a major role on Fringe, and you'd think that Trekkies would be lined up in droves to promote this puppy from here to kingdom come. I can't think it's the time slot, because we're just that crazy dedicated! And Supernatural, I get people poo-poohing it who never gave it the time of day because of what station it's on. That show is gold, and it's not just due to hot actors starring in it! TV Guide finally put them on the cover, and it's about time!
Do you think that it's often that the best shows are frequently underrated in favor of popular tripe, or am I just "picky"? :D Perhaps it's a matter of taste; admittedly my interests lie in paranormal, science fiction, and fantasy shows and there aren't enough good ones out these days. I sincerely wish there were more out there! Maybe we're feeling the lack due to Joss Whedon's shows no longer on the air, who knows?
What do you think? Am I protesting too much, or is there a dearth of good tv shows these days in these genres? Or, worse yet...am I missing scifi/fantasy shows which are good? If so, correct me people, enlighten me...bring such wonderful shows to my attention.
Love & Magic,
