There are some TV series that are very well known and popular. Of these, many attract rabid fandoms that follow the every move of the characters, analyze decisions, follow the actors, etc. Some of these followings are more substantial than others, and some can get crazy or rowdy. Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Sherlock (BBC) are some of the current fandoms that fit both categories. But why are these so popular? Why did they attract these fandoms? What kinds of other shows attract similarly crazy fandoms?
