Emerald City

An edgier take on the Wizard of Oz that really stood out for me. Very well acted with complex characters, mature plotlines, and abso-freaking-lutely stunning visually. It was cancelled way too soon, but even so I'd suggest this to any fans of Oz or fantasy shows.

Fun, but not as well done as Charmed (the original series). Still, the main trio are charismatic enough to hold people's interest, even if the writing isn't quite as interesting as I would have hoped.

As a kid it was fun to see a game I played with my friends come to life on the television. Not something I could watch as an adult, but there's still that little touch of nostalgia when I think of this show.

One of a long line of police procedurals where the police team up with someone who has a 'gift' of some sort that helps them solve crimes. A charismatic lead, but that's the only thing that stands out here.

A much better show than its cancellation would imply. The premise is fairly simple: A man wakes up each morning to find that it's the same morning. He's repeating the same day over and over again, and the only lasting changes are the ones made to him. The series follows him as he tries to figure out what's happening while trying to stop criminals who threated not just him but the woman he loves. It's a brilliant show, and deserved far more than it got.

The show seems a bit dated in 2019, but I still prefer it to the reboot. The sisters are all strong women, but the initial series does a much better job of staying true to the "Show, don't tell" rule in regards to social issues. More subtle, more effective. Great magical adventures and very realistic relationships between the sisters keep the show enjoyable.

Creepy and bloody, Channel Zero makes for a pretty good horror show. It is admittedly cheesy and not all of the acting is very good, but fans of the morbid will likely enjoy at least a few of the stories told by this show. Each season is separate, so you can watch only the ones that appeal to you.

Not something I really enjoy, to be honest. The single reason I stuck around until the end was Colin Cunningham, who was brilliantly campy and creepy. I'll watch whatever he's in next, but I think this will be my last grindhouse show. Too bad the ending wasn't any good.

A good supernatural show, though it does fall a little more neatly into the Supernatural Romance sub-genre. Laura Vandervoort does a great job with her role, the plots are well done, and I really like the ending.

For some reason I just can't get enough of these. I even tend to put them on as I'm going to bed, which is normally a spot I reserve for QI. Just picture a show hosted by a comedian known for trashing hecklers, and teams consisting largely of other comedians who like nothing more than roasting the show and its host. Everything gets mocked. Well worth a watch, though the earlier episodes don't really have the rhythm down yet.
