Doctor Who, Outlander, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, MacGyver, Good Girls, The Good Doctor, Star Trek: Picard
This was a fierce month of competition on the Readers’ Choice side with the leader trailing for most of the voting until near the very end when the ultimate winner inched ahead and held on long enough to win. The Staff side was a fierce battle at first until the ultimate winner settled into the top spot and held onto it to win the title.
From the very first moment Outlander hit the airwaves Sam Heughan has been a breakout hit. It is his combination of gifted talent and heartfelt sincerity that has endeared him to the masses. Coming into the fifth season of the hit show, Outlander, Heughan is going as strong as ever in his performance of the brave and loyal Jamie Fraser. In The Fiery Cross (5x1), Heughan got to highlight some of the best characteristics of the character as a husband, father, grandfather, friend, and leader. In every aspect, Heughan shone as he portrayed Jamie standing fierce and strong in defense of his family and friends. His powerful and heartfelt performance is what earned him the title of SpoilerTV’s Readers’ Choice Performer of February.
At the height of the popularity of Star Trek series on the air, each show had that one unique character that caught the attention of fans. For Star Trek: Voyager that character was Seven of Nine who came aboard in the fourth season and portrayed by Jeri Ryan. Seven of Nine was a Borg drone who was assimilated as a six-year-old human girl, is liberated from the collective and joins the Voyager crew. With the help of the ship’s Captain and others, Seven slowly begins to regain her humanity and experience true emotions. Now over twenty years later Ryan brings Seven of Nine back to life in a passionate and driven performance in the Star Trek: Picard episode Stardust City Rag (1x5). This is a different Seven, now a Ranger and a driven woman, a woman on a mission that involves a very human emotion, revenge. From the moment she appears on screen until her very dramatic exit, the episode belongs to Ryan as she returns to the Star Trek franchise. Older fans cheered her arrival while her dynamic performance gained her many new ones. For her impassioned performance, Jeri Ryan has been selected the SpoilerTV Staff Choice Performer of the Month for February.
Sam Heughan and Jeri Ryan’s winner articles will be available later this month. In the meantime, please feel free to use the comments section to discuss these two worthy winners and their amazing fellow nominees.
