As usual Peter you make statements based on a selective and a biased slant, all the while choosing to ignore common sense and facts that are clearly in front of you.
Young Sheldon is on the list because when a well "Respected" member of the community makes a suggestion that warrants inclusion, "I" will automatically defer to their valued suggestion. Why, you ask? Because they deserve that respect when they have pointed out an omission on my part. And also because Jessica "IS" a poll board administrator.
So it is included.
And the second part. Fear the Walking Dead IS IN the poll. As usual you wear glasses that have selective vision. Please have your facts straight. I believe this is the 20th or so time I have asked this of you.
Thanks for your comments and taking the time to comment.
But please do better next time.
Thanks
Ed


Yikes!

IMDb is going downhill at least as a mobile website; it isn't intuitive and I only saw 5 Poll Choices.. I often click an actor or actress image in Photo Gallery and get a massive font'ed ERROR 404 not found. I often go on to Wish List a title but that part of the page loads last so I wait forever. I try to click star ratings and a video trailer starts playing right under my finger as I tap. Pop-unders suck. I'm sorry you felt you had to hate on me but I made an honest mistake. It's a clever poll, I was just being droll and silly not critical of the poster a.k.a. OP. -Peter

Ed,

FYC:
Superboy (1988–1992)
The adventures of the Man of Steel in his teenage years.

Although this series is not as good as Smallville, it is none-the-less a prequel of sort to Superman.

Smallville was written by people who had not read the comics. Their Superboy, Lana, Lex, and Pete were nothing like the ones in my comic books. Clark's mom looked more like Lana Lang than Lana Lang did. They introduced Chloe to do things that Lana should have done. Then they added Lois and neither she nor Clark were convincing reporters for a major metropolitan newspaper. They did not even know when to use nominative pronouns and when to use accusatives.
Superboy was made more cheaply but those people used the source material. Their Superboy was not too tall and not as stiff as Smallville's. Their Lex was not too old. Their Lana Lang was the best Lana ever.

Ian Witham, I get your points, but major comics characters at this point have so much origin variations that each adaptation is inevitably some kind of consensus between different comic versions.

This poll is about our favourite prequels. To be a prequel, it must build up to something that was made earlier but set later. "Superboy" filled the gap between the stories of Superboy and Superman in the comic books. "Smallville" contradicted the comic books, "The Adventures Of Superman", "Lois And Clark", every Superman movie, and all the Arrowverse shows. Therefore, "Smallville" is not a prequel.

Ian Witham in a wider sense it still preceeds a story we all know, which is a definition of a prequel.

I know that, but he is not the Clark or the Superman of any other TV show or movie. Nobody in "Smallville" is the young version of anyone in any version of Superman I have seen. That means it is not a prequel, just as Spielberg's "Young Sherlock Holmes" is not a prequel to the Sherlock Holmes books, films, radio shows, or TV shows. Both are alternate versions.

I don't see how The Tudors is a prequel. It's just based on the same history as all the other versions.

It shows the early life that the movies do not touch upon. I can label it season 1 if you like.

Hoping yes.
There are some people that give up after 20-40 polls. They have made better polls than mine. They may have got discouraged. I was getting close at 130 polls. Guess I have gotten more patient and vocal in my old age! LOL
I hope that others get recognition too.

And thanks. My luck it will only be up for two days and not two weeks!
Crossing my fingers for 10,000 or better votes. 5,000 would be nice too!

Stupidity of ? Dunno!
I was pissed when they pulled it.
But you have to ask, if they went another season would it have gone like Game of Thrones last season debacle?
Sometimes it is best to know when, "The End" is!
But another show based of off Black Sails, like a prequel to this prequel, I can totally see a 4-5 year story board for.
Thanks Oliver

Good Catch
I'll change what it it precedes.
Tomorrow.

Also, anything made after one titles release, (in this case 2015 and 2019) that takes place in a previous time, is a prequel to those events. Loosely based in this case that is. I'm sure that at some point in this series a mention will eventually be made to someone in The Force Awakens.
