Team Experience and I have been talking off blog about how better to handle TV coverage going forward. The disappointing Emmy nominations reminded us that while there's plenty of great work being done on TV, focusing on the Emmys turns out to be not even remotely the best way to honor it since they only have time for about 10 shows which they hang on to year after year. While we're never going to become The TV Experience (you need not worry movie-going cinephiles) nor will we be joining the traditional recapping game --- we experimented a bit but there's more than enough of that online and it wasn't really our thing -- but with the big screen / small screen / web screen lines are ever blurrier it's time to have at least a weekly column devoted to it.
Plus, the whole time I was watching Penny Dreadful Season 2, I was like 'Nathaniel, WHY are you not discussing this regularly with TFE readers? It's so gonzo and worth talking about!'
So our questions to you (yes even you who never comment - speak up) are:
1. What are your 10-15 favorite current shows that you (here's the key part of the question) most love to read about / discuss with others?
2. What are your 10 favorite shows of all time (that are no longer airing)?
3. Which shows that are not endlessly obsessed over online (like, say, Game of Thrones), should be?
