Comments on Sci-Fi Lists: Fantasy TV shows

My original post was 5 years ago so it’s time for an update. If there’s a * in the “My rating” column then I have some interest in watching the show. If there’s nothing there then I have no particular interest in watching it.

Here is the list I’m commenting on — of course it’s changed a bit in the last 5 years.
