2017 Countdown #2: Best Underrated Gem

Every year, there are those few dramas with famous headliners that get a ton of hype even before they hit the air.

As true drama fans, we’re willing to give everything a watch a least once.

2016 Countdown #3: Best Potential

In the drama business, there’s a very clear hierarchy within the cast. You’ve got your leads, seconds leads, supporting actors, and well known extras. Even though some talented actors and actresses may not be getting the top billing yet, there’s definitely star potential there. An unexpectedly good acting performance from a supporting character can be the lone bright spot in an otherwise terrible drama. Or they could even liven up an already great one!

#3: Best Potential on the 2016 Countdown is for all the up-and-comers and stars-in-the-making that we’re waiting to see do big things soon.

2016 Countdown #4: Best Chemistry

When two actors really hit it off on screen, you just know this drama will go far. It doesn’t even matter if the rest of the plot sucks as long as they’ve got this special thing called chemistry. Perhaps nothing is more elusive than this in a drama. You’ve either got it or you don’t; there’s no fakin’ it. But if you do, watch out because things are about to get lit.

2016 Countdown’s #4: Best Chemistry is for all those couples we ship and love, friendships and bromances that warm the heart, and the perfect partners in crime!
