Best and worst genre series of the last 20 years

GO.

I'm going to say

10/ Ash Vs Evil Dead

Great series overall. Fantastic cast made up of cult royalty like Lucy Lawless and Bruce Campbell and brilliant new comers like Dana Delorenzo, the shows humour is fantastic, its genuinely frightening in places and its monster and gore effects are first class.

It doesn't really bring anything new to the Evil Dead canon, but its still lots of fun nonetheless.

9/ The Flash

Its gone down the SJW route recently sadly, but in its prime this was one of my favourite super hero shows. In fact I'd say its among the top 5. Its cast were brilliant and had a wonderful chemistry with each other, it had a terrific rogues gallery, and some legendary villain actors like Mark Hamill, Clancy Brown and Tony Todd making appearances.

It was let down however even before the SJW crap "HASHTAG FEMINISM" by somewhat repetitive stories.

8/ Charmed

A very iconic and influential series. I preferred the earlier years with Shannen Doherty myself. I think the best series is 3 which is when the Cole story arc was at its strongest. 5 was the weakest.

7/ Being Human

Probably the darkest British genre series since Blake's 7. I won't reveal too much but lets say its ending is one of the most genuinely frightening things I've ever seen in a Vampire show. It had some really surprising and bold twists and turns, and had two stellar casts that really gelled. My favourite series is 4 which can hold its own with any Vampire series.

6/ Primeval

I think it had the best premise of any sci fi series of the past 20 years. The anomalies allow your main characters to visit any time and place. What other show can have Dinosaurs in the future, or the beaches of D-day or in ancient Rome, or Victorian London! It maintained a strong quality over the its long run, but sadly was beset by many outside problems, such as the New Who cunts slandering it, ITV cancelling it because it was too expensive, and cast members like Douglas Henshall jumping ship.

5/ Once Upon A Time

It didn't come to the best end. In fact its last series, series 7 was SHIT. Still at its best this was a very unique and imaginative series, and it provided some highly original and interesting takes on classic characters like Peter Pan, Rumplestiltskin, The Evil Queen, Snow White and Captain Hook.

The Pan story arc IMO can hold up with the best story arcs from any series like the Angelus story arc in Buffy, the Khan story arc in Star Trek etc. Also Robert Carlyle and Lana Parilla surely have earned their place among the best genre leads for their performances in the series.

4/ Xena the Warrior Princess

Sadly this seems to be the one everybody overlooks? I don't know why as if nothing else I'd say Lucy Lawless is a candidate for the greatest genre lead of all time alongside William Shatner and Tom Baker.

Like those 2 fine gentleman she is a shameless ham who elevates even the poorest stories, but she is also a great actor for the best scripts.

Xena also had some of the best villains like Callisto, who is up there with Khan and Davros (Personally I'd say she is better than any version of the Master.)

It had a very poor 5 season (further proving the 5th season curse of American genre series.) But overall it was a classic show.

3/ Futurama

Definitely the best sci fi series (which is ironic given that its a comedy.) Futurama had good strong interesting storylines, clever humour and surprisingly some incredibly touching moments.

Episodes like Jurassic Bark, Leela's Homeworld, and the Luck of Fryish are some of the most beautiful, poignant pieces of television I've ever seen. Futurama was one of the best comedy, sci fi and animated series of all time.

2/ Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Obviously this had to be there. Buffy was the most influential series of its generation. It blended the fantastic with the ordinary to a greater extent than any other series before or after it, had one of the greatest rogues galleries of any tv series (it probably has the best after Classic Who itself.) And had a wonderful cast of characters who were very well developed over its 7 year run.

1/ Angel

It might not have been as ground breaking as Buffy but I actually preferred it. I preferred Angel as a character, it was a bit more bleak and pessimistic, it had the best ending of any genre series, and I think it not only broke the American genre series 5th season rule, but it I'd say the 5th season of Angel is Joss Whedon's best work on either film or tv.

The 5 worst genre series meanwhile would be.

5/ Legends of Tomorrow

I wanted to like this show I really did, but its a lot of SJW crap, it killed off its best character (Captain Cold) in its first season (Seriously whose dumb idea was it to get rid of Wentworth Miller? It would be like if Avon had been killed in season 1 of Blake's 7!) It has some interesting ideas, but its just too smug for my liking.

4/ Torchwood

As much as I like John Barrowman, this really was the pits. Its first season contains some laughable monsters like the sex gas monster, the notorious "have you ever cummed so hard you forgot where you were" and the Cyberwoman with big metal tits.

Its like that weird Billy Baggs Zygon porno movie with a bigger budget and stupider scripts.

3/ Supergirl

Dear god this series is to superhero shows what Jodie's era is to New Who. Its got paper thin plots, smug unlikable characters going on about how much they hate white men, and the writers lecturing us the little morons at home why racism is bad.

2/ Class

Racist, tedious, badly made garbage with the lamest monsters and lead characters with no personalities apart from Katherine Kelly who hammed it up too much to overcompensate.

1/ Doctor Who

It would be unfair to have New Who in total be one of the worst, so I'll just say from 2014 on which is when the notorious vandalization of Classic Who and pandering to morons began. Its reached new lows with Jodie Pisstaker.

Primeval was pretty good. I'd love to give Hannah a proper good rogering. Shame the series isn't as fondly remembered as it should be. There used to be a series that aired on ITV back in 2006 that also featured Jurassic creatures but I can't think for the life of me what the name of it was.

Trust me Supergirl is every bit as bad as Doctor Who and Class.

Its exactly the same paper thin plots, boring non villains and embarrassing virtue signalling and bile being spewed at white men.

I've posted this before many times as an example of how SJW shows suck, but just in case you didn't see it, here. PS there's a part 3 now too.







Of course I'll just get told I hate this show because I apparently hate shows starring women, even though 4 out of my top 5 top genre shows of the past 20 years, star women as the main heroes. (The main character in Futurama is a man, but the most genuinely heroic, brave and badass character who saves the day the most is Leela.)

Supergirl is nothing more than a cringey piece of propaganda.

Actually, that looks WORSE than Doctor Who. My God, some of the lines are so fucking forced and clumsy it's unbelievable. Most of the clips are disgustingly bitter and infuriatingly sexist. How has this pile of shite with its blatant propaganda and hypocrisy not been cancelled yet? LOL at the "I was at full strength and you beat me" crap. Urgh.

Hahaha did you watch all 3? I wouldn't blame you if not, but the third one is actually the worst. There's a bit where Supergirl and her friends look at the corpses of men killed by a virus that only kills men and says that its funny looking at the corpses of stupid, useless men.

It is actually worse than Doctor Who in the sense that its more racist, sexist and vile.

However I think New Who is worse to the legacy of DW than that is of DC comics.

At least Supergirl is its own self contained shit, where as DW is supposed to be a sequel and therefore ruins the original. (well okay it doesn't, but you know what I mean it is trying to change the original.)

Supergirl is technically worse, but it will be forgotten in about 2 years where as sadly unless they do an alternate sequel, Jodie and Missy will forever be stamped over those characters.

I did. They all up to 20 minutes worth of abhorrent bigotry. Small wonder why I prefer to watch the 1984 movie instead. At least the character in that is portrayed as a smart, heroic and affectionate girl rather than a whiny and snarky brat the TV series depicts her as. I'm expecting this sort of shit to be included ad nauseam in the rest of Series 11.
