Pues con lo mal que pone todo el mundo Madame Xanadú yo tampoco lo comprendo. Aunque no he leído la serie y no puedo opinar.
¿Northlanders no comenzó en 2007? Igual por eso no puede entrar como serie nueva este año.

Raúl Martin dijo...

Tienes razón Héctor. Es de Diciembre 2007. Puede que sea por eso, no lo sé. En todo caso de ser así sería un tecnicismo un poco tonto.
Aunque no pudiera ir como serie nueva, no habría ningun impedimento en colocarla como mejor serie. Tampoco sería una nominarla en esa categoría.
A la Xanadu, sólo le veo posibilidades en la categoría de mejor serie nueva. En las otras, a priori compite con otros mucho mejores.
