Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching:
LOL, I am so
not the person to come to for little-known, little-watched shows. This is why I'm also not doing Fandom Snowflake Challenge Days 2 & 3, because they both involve reccing things that I think are little-known, and I just don't venture out enough to know. Basically, if I've seen it, there's a good chance most of my readers have too.
I mean, I would always happily eat up more Elementary
fic, meta, vids, and other fanworks, but I'm not really concerned about a lack of viewership as such. It seems to me that a huge fraction of my reading list is watching that show. And even though most people don't post super frequently about Elementary
, I know I'd find more fannish stuff if I just went to tumblr. But I'm too lazy to learn tumblr savior, so.
As for old shows, I suppose I wish more people in my circles watched Friday Night Lights
. It's in my Top 5 shows ever, and in that case I do suspect that the dearth of vids, fic, etc is as much lack of viewers as it is lack of people making stuff. Here is a non-exhaustive, unsorted list of things I love about it:
- People communicate. Not always well, but they try. Drumming up false drama over lack of basic communication skills is a serious pet peeve for me, and this show never does that.
- It treats everyone, from the single mother with a drug addiction to the obnoxious new rich guy's wife, with honesty and sympathy, and it lets them be real people. It doesn't go for cheap jokes or bad drama at characters' expense.
- It tells the kind of stories I never, ever would have expected from a show about a high school football team in Texas. It particularly gives some beautiful arcs to numerous female characters.
- It makes me want to be a better person.
It's a really good show. You should watch it. ( 30 Questions )
