Not all of them are TV shows; some are movies. Many are made by JJAbrams, Tim Kring or their ilk. ''Series/{{Lost}}'' is probably the TropeCodifier, though other shows of its ilk came before, including ''Series/TheXFiles'', ''Series/BabylonFive'' and Abrams' own ''Series/{{Alias}}''. There are many, many, ''many'' more. These shows often either are ShortRunners or, on the opposite end, instead, are LongRunners. Either way, the creator usually makes [[ShrugOfGod little effort to actually bother to ever resolve]] [[MythArc the show's central plot]].

These shows are all the rage these days. They typically have a one-word-title. Like "Show". They are heavily character-driven. [[JigsawPuzzlePlot Each episode reveals only a little more of the overall plot]]. In many respects, they harken back to the style of old {{Television Serial}}s like the old ''Series/DoctorWho''... but DarkerAndEdgier, HotterAndSexier, and usually with a generous helping of MindScrew.
