I've heard more good about Peeky Blinders. The Marco Polo side I've heard "Kind of Games Of Thrones-ish" and I've been burned out on GoT for awhile.

Except that Prince dude who got his head popped like a grape. He was great.
The two episodes I watched didn't give me a GoT vibe, but then again I don't watch GoT. It reminded me of a poorly done The Tudors or The Borgias, to be honest.

It's a given that everyone is watching Million Dollar American Princesses on the Smithsonian channel.  Cheesy reenactments aside, it's well done. Julian will approve that there is some American blood in Churchill and Lady Di

I was watching Seinfeld last night [duh, totally Prestige Television] and there was a commercial for a reality television show that revoled around the lives of! The Little Women Of LA on Lifetime Channel.

Dear god. I honestly felt kind of bad because I thought it was a parody show like the one on Hulu, "Hotwives Of Orlando"... but it's totally not a parody.  :-\

1.  Is Orphan Black "prestige"?  I plan on starting it tonight.

2.  What about Continuum?  I am in the middle of that show's first season.

LOL, from Julian's link:
Quote
Perusing The A.V. Club?s 2014 Best Of TV list (which I contributed to), I see only one show, Orphan Black, that I?d slot into the ?mid-reputable? category. The rest could pretty reasonably be called prestige television, or at least ?cult shows.? Even Orphan Black is one of those genre series like Battlestar Galactica that shades into the realm of prestige.

Can we start a "mid-reputable" TV thread?

Orphan Black is mid-reputable or prestige depending on whom you talk to.

Continuum is a solid neither.

Have you seen Continuum?  Or are you making presumptions based on articles like that one?

Also, you have a very hipster-ish view of television.  Are you a hipster Julian?

If we are splitting TV up, then we should probably split music up into Prestige and non-Prestige categories.
