The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

11 April 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And »

If you've been enjoying Susan Sarandon on Feud: Bette and Joan, you're in luck.

She'll be sticking around television for the foreseeable future. It seems Sarandon has been bitten by the TV bug!

While she's had guest starring roles in the past, none have been quite as notable as these. Up next? A major recurring arc on Ray Donovan Season 5.

Sarandon has had other roles in television.

Aside from one-offs and movies, she had a recurring arc on Rescue Me as Alicia Green.

Alicia got involved with Franco at just about the time he began getting more involved with his daughter, Keela, and that made for quite a dramatic relationship between Alicia and Franco because of how Alicia felt about Keela needing a family.

Sarandon also had a recurring arc on HBO's The Big C starring Laura Linney and Oliver Platt. Sarandon's character becomes a spiritual guru to Platt's character and things run amok. »
