Critics and Connoisseurs

Club Description:

First and foremost, I would like to make it clear that this is not an elitist club. Our goal is to come up a list of highly recommended quality shows that are exemplary either within genre or universally. However, everyone has different standards when it comes to this, so I have made up a short list of basic requirements with the goal of ensuring maximum participation from our members.

To express interest in an admin role in this club, please PM any active admin in this club with the role you are interested in and it will be put forward for discussion amongst the admins.

We are changing the way our voting works in You Decides. Votes are now being counted automatically so you need to type exactly as it is shown for the system to count your vote. Type #Yes if you want a title to be inducted, type #No if you don't want to see a title inducted, type #IDK if you are not familiar with the title, and type #Abstained if you don't want to vote. Hashtags are mandatory. Bear in mind, though, that your lists will still be checked manually. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
