  1. I agree!

    Unfortunately Mo has a raging NB for Glee. So Supernatural will unlikely advance, but for future rankings it would help to swing that split decision.


  2. End of the Fucking world is a mini-series adaptation of a novel, and it’s so short and focused it’s really just a movie cut up. There was no pilot, a pilot is a testing grounds, so I don’t really think it belongs here.

  3. Hmm, Jzakko that is a fair point. None of our other pilots fit that description. It did air as the first episode of a series and it ended with room for another season. I’ll discuss it with the gang.

    I think that could be said about a lot of shows. Does it matter that they stretch a story out? Friday Night Lights was a movie retold as a series, same with Buffy.
