Poll - What do you pay attention to the most when looking at a new show??

(Check out my newly refurbished website, www.seriesmonitor.com)

I've had this poll in mind for a while now, and because almost all the shows are taking a break for Christmas and New Year, I thought it might be a good time to put the poll out there, given it requires a little thought, and that one show you like could sway your answer

The question is which two elements do you pay the most attention to when looking at a new show, or a show that you haven't watched before??

The four answers and their definitions with examples are:

Concept - this includes elements like the year or era, environmental setting, and influences or obstacles that are unique, such as a lack of electricity in NBC's Revolution, or a submarine on ABC's Last Resort.

Action - covers things such as shootouts, car chases, supernatural or mysterious forces and the like. It can also be non confrontational, dramatic, time critical, or political, with ABC's Scandal being a prime example. In short, something happening at speed and with intensity

Characters - could be atypical characters in a typical setting, such as Gregory House from FOX's House M.D., or typical characters in atypical settings such as Richard Castle in ABC's Castle. Couples, groups of characters, heroes, villains, protagonists, antagonists, also count here

Story - Pretty self-explanatory. Covers what happened in the past, what is happening at the moment, and what may happen in the future. All shows have a story of some sort

It's important to remember that all these elements tie in very closely together. The concept and the story work with one another, whilst the characters are involved in all the action. The story can influence the actions of a character and different concepts require different forms of action. These relationships continue around and around

This is quite a broad topic and I've attempted to simplify things right down. I think these four categories cover everything pretty well, but everyone is different so be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below, this topic creates a lot of discussion!

The poll is below. You can vote for one or two choices. I hope everyone had a happy Christmas, and is looking forward to 2013!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
