Midweek Movie Mouth-Off: your most underrated TV series

1 min read

One of the most common complaints levelled at the Emmy Awards is that they tend to reward the same television shows and performers every single year. Voters have their favourites, and they stick with those faves until they really jump the shark.

This year was a bit more progressive than usual (acknowledgement for Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, finally!), but there’s no question award shows and critics’ bodies have their biases, and rarely look beyond those. Today we want to hear from you – what series deserves more awards love than it gets? What do you consider to be underrated critically?

For James Francis, number one is Bojack Horseman.

Three seasons of the most groundbreaking animated sitcom since The Simpsons and South Park and still not even a nod.

For me, it’s Penny Dreadful.

Narratively a bit hit-and-miss, you think they’d at least have rewarded Eva Green (especially), Timothy Dalton or Rory Kinnear for their powerful performances paired with gorgeously poetic dialogue.

Now it’s your turn to weigh in below.
