Can we please have more incredible forearms on primetime, please


I was just about to say that this so fits "The Returned." Also, I want Lena's hair.

@happymisanthrope MM HMM


I've recently been watching Deadwood, and this list just makes me think that show was way ahead of its time.

Also, I have always longed to be a woman with a scratchy voice. Sometimes I meet women with scratchy voices and I think how much more I deserve the scratchy voice than they do. Even though I know that is absurd. Where is a sea witch when you need her.

I guess in the sea.

@Pound of Salt I FEEL YOU. What other shows are there? Please tell me PLEASE

@Edith Zimmerman All that's left are the Canadian shows! But The Americans is my favorite thing right now (for the wigs).


Vikings hits like half of these, FYI.

Gef the Talking Mongoose

Let's see how this matches up with my favorite show currently on TV.

Teenage girls and/or women with astoundingly fantastic hair, check.
Rituals with masks, metaphorical check.
Plaid, check.
Teenage girls and/or women with astoundingly fantastic skin, check.
Vast quantities of alcohol, check.
Men with amazing forearms, check.*
Taxidermy, check.**
Unusual teeth, check.
Amazing breasts, check.
People or things being underwater, check.***
Hot guys with secrets, OH YES CHECK.
Women with scratchy voices, DOUBLE CHECK LIKE ALL OF THEM.

It's official, RuPaul's Drag Race is the best drama on television right now. You heard it here first.

* Cf. "Pit Crew"
* Stuffed crows, "Game of Thrones" outfit.
** Last season premiere, "I was giving Helen Keller drowning realness". Don't ask.


Can we talk about the American version of Les Revenants though?! Like... Just... No. I hate to condemn something before even seeing it, but the previews... UGH NO.
