  1. Harper’s Island Not an all-time favorite of mine (and definitely a fair placement for it), but I did really enjoy it while it was airing. I’m a sucker for the murder-mystery kind of shows. And this one was similar to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None or the movie Identity. I remember watching it with my mom and trying to figure out who the killer was each week (there may have even been some sort of online voting thing where you could guess too, if I remember correctly). As far as the Season 2 thing, I think the plan was for it to be an anthology type of show? So Season 2 would have been new people/plot. But still not quite sure how all of that would have worked
  2. never saw this show so I have no real opinion... but this made me laugh!
  3. Station 19 I enjoy a lot of the shows in this group of nominations, so I’m choosing to cut Station 19 since it is one of the few on this list I haven’t seen. I honestly wasn’t aware that this show is a spin-off of Grey’s Anatomy (since it’s been a few seasons since I’ve watched Grey’s as well), but apparently it is a spin off! The show has been airing on ABC since May 2018 and is currently on its 3rd season. It follows the firefighters who work at the Seattle Fire Station 19. The pilot was technically an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and led to character Ben Warren deciding to leave medicine behind and become a firefighter, moving into that show instead. The main character is Andy Herrera, the daughter of the head firefighter (Captain Pruitt Herrera). Like many shows of this type, there is a mix of focus on personal and professional lives. Naturally there are a lot of crossovers with Grey’s (especially with Dr. Bailey being married to one of the main characters). Many of the reviews I found while searching weren’t stellar, saying that Chicago Fire is the superior of the two fire related shows. But honestly I haven’t seen either, so I’m not sure. Either way, for a relatively newer spin off, this seems like a decent placement for it. Saving: The Mole
  4. Save The Mole Cut Station 19
  5. Gotham I’m cutting Gotham this round, which is actually a show I’ve saved once or twice in the past. I’ve only seen scattered episodes of this (mostly from the villains season), but I did enjoy the small amount I watched. Gotham is a show that aired for 5 seasons on FOX from Sept 2014- April 2019. It stars Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, a member of the Gotham City Police Department. The show follows him and his colleagues as they contend with the growing criminal underworld of Gotham City. The first season starts with the investigation into the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, and follows their son Bruce as he’s placed in the care of butler Alfred. While much of the focus is on the James Gordon character and his personal and professional life, obviously a decent amount of time is put into the Bruce Wayne story as well. As the show progresses, it also gives origin stories to some of our favorite Batman villains such as Penguin, Riddler, Joker, Poison Ivy, etc. The show received generally positive reviews and ended after 5 seasons. The series finale takes place after a 10-year time jump and shows the rise of Bruce as the masked vigilante we all know. This is a show that I did enjoy and I’ve been meaning to watch more of. But this is where it leaves the rankdown. Saving: Schitt’s Creek
  6. Catherine the Great Choosing to cut this show as it is one of the only ones left on the list that I have either no attachment to, or that I haven't received a specific save request for... I was going to cut Wheel of Fortune since I've been mostly eliminating game shows at this point, but it and Jeopardy are both such iconic game shows so I think they deserve to make it longer in the game. Hopefully no one was super-attached to this show, but as we're getting down more and more there really are no more easy cuts that will upset no one. On to the show (which sadly I haven't seen)! Catherine the Great was a miniseries that aired pretty recently (October 2019) on Sky Atlantic in the UK and HBO in the US. It was a four episode miniseries that stars Helen Mirren and tells the story of Catherine, starting in the 1760s after she's taken over the Russian throne (after overthrowing her husband) and spanning the time until her death in 1796. It details some of the challenges she faces from opposing forces. Wikipedia really doesn't give me much here by way of plot so I'm going to be pretty vague. It also appears to tell a love story between Empress Catherine and Grigory Potemkin (who served as a military commander). Unsurprisingly, reviews are all extremely favorable for Helen's performance and also the beautiful sets and costuming throughout the production. I also found a lot of positive things said about the performance of Gina McKee, who plays Countess Bruce who was one of Catherine's close friends and confidants. I did see criticisms in the reviews that I search which stated that the chemistry between Mirren and Jason Clarke (who played Potemkin) was a little lacking considering the amount of focus placed on their love story. Overall, this sounds like a well done period piece, but not one of the best ones on our list of shows. Saving: Angel

  9. This was a really hard decision... I decided against bringing anything back because I feel like any of the shows I would want to bring back probably wouldn’t survive that long once they’re back in the game. As far as immunity, there are a ton of shows I was between giving it to. But it seems like a lot of miniseries and limited series I enjoyed are being nominated/eliminated earlier than I would like... so I tried to think of which miniseries I would be most upset if it was eliminated before top 200. So I decided on: When They See Us
  10. Hm, not sure what I want to do yet. There’s a few shows I’d like to see come back, but I don’t know how long they’d last... so immunity may be better. I’ll think about it and post a little later this afternoon
  11. omg, I went back to make sure I was within the time limit lol. I was thinking not again!!
  12. Family Feud I actually really enjoy Family Feud, but I definitely think this is a decent placement for the game shows to start going. Family Feud has been on television for many decades with a variety of different hosts: Richard Dawson (1976-1985), Ray Combs (1988-1994), Louie Anderson (1999-2002), Richard Karn (2002-2006), John O’Hurley (2006-2010), and Steve Harvey (2010-present). I’m definitely most familiar with the Richard Dawson era, as I watched a lot of those reruns on GSN, but I have also seen a fair amount of the Steve Harvey ones. The contestants are 2 opposing families of 5. One at a time, a player from each team goes up to the buzzer. They are asked a survey question where the top several answers are up on the board. Which ever contestant buzzes in with the most popular answer is then given the opportunity for their family to play or pass. The family in control then each gives answers until either all are revealed or they receive 3 strikes. First team to 300 points wins and goes on to play the fast money round. Like I said, this is a fun show but I feel like this is a good place for it. Saving: Big Little Lies
