How We Picked The Shortlists

So, you may be looking at the list below thinking “why isn’t X TV Show/Movie on there?”… There are 2 reasons for this.

Firstly, we can’t have every show/movie/game released this year on the list, so we had to cut it down. This was done by the getting the Geektown staff to vote on a “long list” and make suggestions until the list was a more manageable, “shortlist”, size. I’m sure some of you will have opinions on our shortlists, so feel free to add your comments below on this page.

Secondly, eligible shows need to have premiered on a broadcaster or streaming service in the UK between 1st Dec 2018 and 30th Nov 2019.
