Summer (Re)view Quarterfinals: Help reduce the nominations!

So, yeah, I decided to change the name of this to “(re)view” because it has more meaning that “(re)watch” — viewing once, re-viewing for some, and reviewing for me.

Okay, so a lot of shows were nominated. Thanks guys! But I’m ready to shorten the list from 8 to 4 by tomorrow, then 2, and then 1. The reason I’m doing it this way is so that the votes count more per poll and therefore we can watch a show the majority agrees on. If that makes sense. It does to me anyway!

I chose the only 8 shows that were nominated and seconded. And what followed was a list of the following (in no particular order): Breaking Bad, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Friday Night Lights, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, The X-Files, Pretty Little Liars, and Lost.

I’ll just make my case against the Pretty Little Liars and Lost. For one, I’ve watched one episode of PLL and it was, quite honestly, just downright awful. It’s also a series that’s technically going to be airing during summer, so I don’t know if I would like to do that. And I’ve watched two or three episodes of Lost and just…do not like it. But it’s up to you, I suppose.

Here’s the poll which I will use to split in half tomorrow. So vote for the series you’d like to see this summer!

    I picked Lost – because I love this show and want to re-watch it this summer. I think it’s one of those shows that made big impact on tv in recent decade. Of course Game of thrones is also a must – see.
    Which Lost episodes did you see? First 3 ep?

    • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

      I watched the pilot, the second episode, and a third random one once in syndication. Now, I will say, that I’m not completely against it. I don’t remember much from the eps…and if it wins, I’m willing to watch it and have a new perspective.

        I am glad to hear that! GG, PLL and HoD are my favorite TV shows. I can’t even decide whether GG or PLL is my number one favorite but I guess I like PLL a little bit more than GG.

    Feel so sorry for X-Files down there with no votes but have to go with something that would be appropriate for the limited time available. All the shows are iconic (even the ones you deemed clunkers. Every show has slow eps ;)) so it’s a great contest! No matter the outcome, you have to watch Buffy & X-Files pronto, even though you will probably have a sarcastic response to the effects & fangs on Buffy. Cut ‘em some slack, it’s truly groundbreaking TV! :)
    **stfu evilme! I will not vote for Lost just to force him to watch a show he said he hates**

    • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

      Maybe we can get to them during another hiatus!! And vote for the show you’d like! But I think Buffy might be winning out xD

      • AMontemaht

        That’s very ambitious and would have to be a *long* hiatus! The only way to really appreciate either Buffy or XF is to hunker down somewhere very comfortable and be a hermit while you binge watch all seasons. Or follow a good how to catch up guide if you don’t want to have permanent cheek imprints on your couch ;)
        Buffy would be an awesome choice!! Just hope you can squeeze in more than the first season or you won’t truly grasp it’s greatness :)
        Which makes me wonder, are you a purist that you would want to go the every episode in order route or would you consider hitting the highlights in the case of a long running completed series? Not to make this harder on you or anything :P

        • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

          Purist of the pure!!! But that doesn’t mean that I won’t watch 2 or 10 episodes in one week xD (or even one day if I really love the show, which honestly is what I’m most afraid of…that I’ll come to review one week and realize I’m done with half the freakin’ season).

  • prettylittleS

    Pretty Little Liars would be awesome. The show just keeps getting better and better so you should give it a chance again!

  • Spike

    BUFFY all the way!

    I’m still with Supernatural on this one! I think it’s really great and I’d love to see what you think about it.

    I voted for Game of Thrones because I’ve been dying to rewatch the first season… but my second vote would have been for PLL since I started watching in the middle of the show one day after hearing my sister go on and on about it, so I’ve never actually watched season one, and honestly feel like I missed a bit more than I should have even if I do feel like I’m pretty into the show. :]]

    • http://twitter.com/iareally Ally Jay

      oh and if I’d been given three votes Lost would have been on there, and even if it doesn’t win this vote off, I still think you need to see that show! Its amazing!!!

  • Eric Pharand

    SMG is terrible in Ringer. How can she be better when she was younger?

    • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

      Well she was absolutely fantastic in Cruel Intentions, so.

      • Eric Pharand

        I’ve blocked all memory of that movie, so…

        • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

          LMFAO I just watched it for the first time and found it pretty entertaining.

    • Spike

      you really haven’t seen her then :)
      btw there’s a bot who’s minusing every coment here

      • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

        LMAO I think it’s someone who’s just REALLY against Buffy.

  • http://twitter.com/tessunia Aleksandra Gorska

    Why only just one? Pick two – summer is very long ;)
    Too bad that you didn’r consider Doctor Who :(

    • http://nowhitenoise.com Michael Collado

      Haha because we’re going to try to watch it together. So it’s just easier if it’s one series. And maybe we’ll marathon several episodes in one week, but then there’s more seasons anyway!

      • http://twitter.com/tessunia Aleksandra Gorska

        Wett, true. Depends on what’s gonna win ;)

  • http://twitter.com/AdeliciaBass Addy

    Ah! Why is Lost on there now? I guess I’ll have to resist voting for it, since you don’t seem particularly thrilled over the episodes you’ve seen. :( So I’m gonna go with FNL again. It’s so unbelievably good and even if it doesn’t win this little voting session, I think you should still give it a chance at some point. You’re life will never be the same after experiencing it.

    And I’d like to apologize in advance if Pretty Little Liars wins. I watched the first five minutes of the pilot and had to turn it off because I literally had gone into the fetal position because of how much secondhand embarrassment I received from it’s awfulness.

  • Hieu

    One episode of Pretty Little Liars isn’t doing it justice…..I swear on the television gods this show is BRILLIANT! I normally don’t like high school shows but it’s intriguing and the adults’ storylines are equally as riveting.

    • prettylittleS

      exactlyyyyyyyy :D

    Awww I wish you would watch Doctor Who! It’s an AMAZING show! Well I voted for Buffy because it’s one of my all time favs<3
