Overrated/Underrated Shows Game

edited February 2020 in General
Probably a lame idea, and definitely unoriginal, but I'm more than a little bored and I generally respect peoples' pop-cultural opinions here, so I had an idea for a dumb game.  I'll start with the name of a show.  Whoever responds can simply say "underrated," "overrated," or "properly rated," indicating where they believe the critical general consensus of the public lies.  It's very scientific. 

So as not to derail the chain with arguments, because I abhor disorder, forum users can indicate whether they agree (using the like button) or disagree (using the..."funny" button? no hard feelings).  Then someone can tally all the votes and publish their studied findings for all the world to see.  or something.  Ready?  Begin!

  • Does it mean I'm dyslexic if I saw the thread title as "Overrated/Underrated Game Shows"

    I haven't watched enough to say one way or the other, so I'll perpetuate it, but I am simultaneously tempted to say "properly" and "underrated." Kind of depends on whose rating we're looking at. It's a niche show that seems to be rabidly loved by the niche, and from what I've seen is worthy. So do we look to it being kind of underknown or use the opinion of the niche that is aware of it and seems to appreciate it properly? The Expanse is kind of the Guided by Voices of current television in that way. Good choice, @Hatorian.

    I'll say underrated for The Expanse.  The whole save the expanse certainly put it in the spotlight more but I still feel like it's hugely unknown to the general population.
