Once a week we're going to take a look at how one of the Quiet Pool TV Awards is stacking up. This week we begin with the Dynasty Award for Best Drama Series. I've done a bit of reshuffling in how I've categorized the shows. Taking Reality and Variety out of the equation, the Big Three have a bunch over overlaps.
The way I've split the series into Comedy, Drama and Action is like this:
--A comedy is a show that is fueled by comedic values and are theoretically a sitcom.
--A drama is a show that is based on the relationships between the characters. Sure they may be comedy involved, but its the people that make up the show.
--An action is a show that begins and ends with the action of the show itself. There can be both dramatic and comedic elements, but its about the events.
Two major changes...
-House has moved from Drama to Action.
-Greek has moved from Comedy to Drama.
Currently holding nomination spots:
Brothers and Sisters
Friday Night Lights
One Tree Hill
Outside looking in:
With House switching categories, the Dynasty Award is now much less competitive for Friday Night Lights. Although it won't start until mid-October (this summer on NBC), FNL is looking way behind them at their strongest competitor. Greek steps into the category and is near the top of heap in my opinion. With time we'll see what happens with newbies Melrose, Glee and Eastwick. I see Melrose having the most upside out of those three shows.
Fellow Poolie voters, what show should be nominated that isn't here?
