Drama Ratings

Last edited: Dec 4, 2011.

It’s getting harder navigating in the drama landscape, as the offerings get more varied, come from wider sources, and feature just about anything you can think of. Especially now that cable networks have started producing prime time dramas, we will probably have double the amount of dramas each year compared to before.

I used to have a rule that I would only rate a drama if I have finished at least three quarter of it. But now, to heck with it. If I can’t finish a drama, that means there’s something with it that doesn’t sit right with me and I think I deserve saying that out loud. However, there are also dramas that I’ve watched the first couple of episodes and promptly stopped watching. I guess rating them wouldn’t be fair since the first couple of episodes are hardly indication of say, 14 more to come. Especially for longer dramas, the first week is only a minuscule part of the entire run.

Therefore, I’ve set my limit to 10 episodes. No matter how long the drama is, I think 10 episodes can give enough glimpses of whether this drama would be IT. Or EW. I think this is quite a fair disposition.

Anyways, hopefully the list would be of help for anyone trying to look for great, older dramas.
