The SpoilerTV Favourite TV Series Competition 2019 - Day 4 - LOST vs. Orphan Black & Orange is the New Black vs. Dexter By Bradley Adams (August 19, 2019, 6:54 pm)
Orphan Black, Orange is the New Black
Ah, LOST. Once a bronze medallist, twice a quarter-finalist, thrice a third round competitor, twice too a faller at the first. The show from which this site was born has, but for blips in 2015 and 2016, generally been a strong performer in this competition. The series had an enormous amount of internet pull during its run and its popularity remains. Orphan Black didn't achieve as wide, mainstream adoration but it is well-known and well loved, and the critical acclaim speaks for itself. This is its seventh straight appearance — it has featured in every edition since the show began — and last year proved to be its best yet, finishing 12th. Don't be surprised if Orphan Black comes out on top today.
Mere weeks after its final season dropped on Netflix, Orange is the New Black makes its first appearance in the competition. It feels strange that a show so popular for the streamer has never featured here across six previous seasons, so seeing how it goes here will be fascinating. Its opponent today? Dexter, last year's wooden spoon winner and a show which was once so beloved but where now general thought turns to *that* finale, and the scorn Showtime's thriller received. Five times out of nine Dexter has failed to reach round two. As opponents for debutants go, this is one of the more favourable for Orange is the New Black.
A reminder of the rules:
