Welcome to the First Annual T.O.Y (Television Of The Year) Awards!
The traditional television season has come to an end, which means Hollywood is heating up as the nominations for Emmys approach. Some shows I have actually watched will be nominated.
Similar to the WIT (Watched In Theater) awards in January, the goal of the TOY awards is to honor the television shows I actually watch. Whereas with film, I only choose a single winner, the TOY awards has five categories:
- Most Improved Show
- Best Cancelled Show
- Best Show I Gave Up On
- Show I Enjoyed More Than It Merited
- Best Overall Show
Over the next three Mondays, I’ll post the winners for each categories above. For now, I’ll leave you with….
And The Contenders Are:
Legend of Korra
Parks and Recreation
Legend of Korra
I also would like to thank online video streaming sites like Hulu and Netflix for giving me the opportunity to watch these shows weeks after they aired. Sometimes, I’ll purposefully wait for three or four episodes to be online and then do a binge watching evening. It’s fairly fun.
Look for next Monday, when the awards for Most Improved Show and Best Cancelled Show will be awarded.
- What shows did you watch this season?
- Do you use the Internet to catch up on shows?
- If you were to be locked in a spaceship traveling to Mars, and could only watch one television series, which would it be and why?
Side Notes: I thought this post on superhero movies from Tabula Candida was fun.
I know this was announced a while ago, but I am still intrigued by the upcoming Agent Carter show for ABC next fall. It’s always exciting to see a show with a booty-kicking lady as a lead.
Which is like my conversation convincing my 12 year old sister to go with me to see Captain America: “It has Scarlett Johanson as Black Widow kicking booty.”
