Contest #3: Significant TV Shows

Write about your unforgettable experience with the most cinematic, artistic, and underrated TV shows (including animated ones).

The contest idea comes from @zayedsakib. When I was talking with him about a new contest, he suggested we could do one with significant tv shows.

TV shows usually have a lower budget and they're targeted at the TV audience. We do not usually expect the shiny, polished feel of a feature film. Yet, in many cases, some TV shows become exemplary.

When I think of such shows, immediately a few names pop into my mind. Twin Peaks, Dekalog.
I lose myself in them, I submerge myself in the ethereal beauty they readily promise.

There are a few modern shows too that I find irresistible. Planet Earth II, Hannibal, Penny Dreadful, Person of Interest. Mushishi. Kino No Tabi.

There are also single-season mini-series like Band of Brothers, Parades End, Paranoia Agent. that rocked my world, moved me deeply.

I believe these shows can compete in the highest arena for their innate greatness.

And I know many of you have such shows you would like to talk about with fervent enthusiasm!

This contest is then, for you!

    ► What part of it you found most interesting.
    ► Any scene that still pops into your mind.
    ► Performance of the actors/actress that left an impression.
    ► Why do you think it's significant and great.

Great contest topic! I reblogged and spent some of my POINTS to promote this on Ecency. It will be in the sponsored post rotation for 2 days and will be seen by more people.

Many thanks and much appreciated!

This sounds like fun. I'll need to put on my thinking cap and remember to write something up. I've not yet participated in these type of postings

My entry can be found here, good luck to all.

Let it be the maiden one then. :) Good luck.

Sopranos is a great show no doubt. :) Before I read your post, let me just say out of context, I always had a crush on Dr. Melfi! 😅

No, you can only enter once. But your entry can have multiple shows. :)

Hi, I love movies and series and my language is Spanish.

I can't use Deepl? to make my post.

Do I have to know English to participate?


Hello, @eve66
Currently, there are no Spanish-speaking team members with us at the moment, so it is quite impossible for us to judge a post written in Spanish.
And since, prose is one of the main categories of evaluation, we're not accepting deepL translations for this one.

However, the situation might change in the upcoming contests and we will state so in the announcements.

Thanks for your interest. :)
