If you’re here, the chances are you love serialized, mythology-fueled or high-concept television shows. Over the years, these Seriable treats have provided us with some truly unforgettable scenes, legendary characters, moments of poignancy that transcend the screen, and much, much more.
On such journeys, entire fandoms are built. Indeed, Seriable is home to all of these shows – an ever-growing community where “serialized” and “mythology” are not dirty words to be shamefully whispered at the side of the mouth. They are descriptions of pride and honor – a preference, a philosophy.
So, what better way to pay homage to these brave, meaningful stories, than to induct the most treasured into a Seriable Hall Of Legends! Eligible for the month of may are: 24, Alias, Breaking Bad, LOST, The Wire, and The X-Files.
(Firstly, I know the banner says “hall of fame” but “legends” came to us in a flash after our Seriable Bots had already designed the banner. They’ll update it once they’ve stopped sulking).
Here’s how it works:
Each month, Team Seriable will select SIX of the best, most loved serialized/mythology television shows from the past couple of decades and place them in a SHOL nomination poll. You, the Seriable community, will then have the chance to vote for the show you’d like to see inducted into the Seriable Hall of Legends!
Voting will remain open for 7 days. At the end of that period, the winner (the show with the most votes) will be inducted into the SHOL, which will be a special section of Seriable.com where all the legends will be pictured and listed. We’ll do this each month, and over time we should have a fine, ever-expanding hall of Seriable shows which have been collectively chosen by the Seriable community as being the standard-bearers of television the way we like it.
That’s right, you can help your favorite shows to receive legend status!
Just a quick note: We’ll mix up the shows that we select for the SHOL poll each month, but only those that we feel have attained a certain standard will make it. Also, a tip of the Seriable hat goes to our good chum Page 48 for part-inspiring this idea.
Without further ado, here are some reminders from the shows featured in this month’s SHOL nominations, followed by the poll itself.
