The year is nearly over, which means it’s time to look back at 2018 and see what visitors to Television Obscurities were reading. I’ve done this off and on for the past decade. It’s always interesting to discover what people are reading. In the past, I’ve put together a single blog post covering the most popular articles and blog posts from the previous year.
For 2018, I’m going to publish two separate posts. Today, I’m covering the most popular articles from the past year. Tomorrow, I’ll share the most popular blog posts.
Most Popular Articles of 2018
Here are the ten most popular Television Obscurities articles of 2018:
- The Color Revolution: Television In The Sixties
- A Tale of Two Galacticas
- 10 Of The Most Outlandish TV Concepts Ever
- Telemeter: Coin Operated TV
- It’s About Time
- Star Wars on Network Television
- Mr. Lucky
- The Rebel
Every one of these articles has been on a previous “Most Popular” list. My articles about unsold CBS sitcom pilot “W*A*L*T*E*R” and 10 Of The Most Outlandish TV Concepts Ever have been on every single list since 2010. My article about Otherworld, on the other hand, is making its first appearance since 2018.
I cringe whenever I see Telemeter: Coin Operated TV on one of these lists. It’s the article I’m least proud of and the one I want to revise more than any other–if I only had time.
