Interesting to see "Poirot" (1989-2013) in that list. It has a dedicated fanbase (me included), but compared to some other examples I haven't fans of the series being that much obsessive...

Is it for those who name their dogs as Gandalf and cats as Tauriel?

In my experience, it's the fans of whatever the latest megapopular show is.They switch from Lost to Game of Thrones to whatever.

I agree to an extent. It seems like some show is always the new "must see" show that gets media attention

Even though I belong to that fanbase and it's mostly friendly, I guess "Twin Peaks" (1990-1991) and "Twin Peaks" (2017) very much qualify. Same goes with some of the Arrowverse shows, perhaps, particularly "Supergirl" (2015-).

No pressure, but I honestly think you should add Dallas &I Love Lucy.  Both shows are old but have stood the test of time; they were probably biggest in their decades but they weren't only a passing fad.  Fans still gather at the Southfork Ranch (not to mention the craze of 'Who Shot J.R.?') and people still dress as Lucy when she fell in the grape vat.  Now there's even Lucy lotto tickets!  It's your list so it's up to you, but I think they deserve to be added.  Thank you.  :)

Dexter:  they're not nearly as bad as a few on the list but they're at least as vigilant as fans of "The Wire" and a few other series on the list; I love both shows, by the way : )

'Great idea for a poll.
