Two wastes of time in one!

From hummingwolf, a tv show meme, to show you how hopelessly narrow my taste is:

1. Bold the shows of which you've watched every episode
2. Italic the shows of which you've seen at least one episode
2a. Star the shows you consider "the best" (Addition by tidesong)
3. Post your answers



50. Quantum Leap --one of the best shows of the 80's which isn't saying much
49. Prison Break--saw part of one or two episodes by mistake
48. Veronica Mars
47. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine --Only seen a few. I think it's funny that it's self-contradictory; no one "Treks" on a star base. It's Mel's Diner to Voyager's Gilligan's Island.
46. Sex & The City one episode maybe?

45. Farscape --Best Trek takeoff with muppets ever.
44. *Cracker --working on having seen all of them--also, I assume they are talking about the British, Robbie Coltrane version.
43. *Star Trek
42. Only Fools and Horses--Never even heard of this one.
41. Band of Brothers--Nor this.

40. Life on Mars.
39. *Monty Python's Flying Circus --This changed everything.
38. Curb Your Enthusiasm
37. *Star Trek: The Next Generation
36. Father Ted

35. Alias
34. Frasier --Getting to the point where I've seen every episode, because it's on in reruns at bedtime, when there's nothing else on that's not upsetting (like CSI and Fox News).
33. CSI: Las Vegas--possibly the most overrated show on television. My Dad can't lord his cultural superiority over me (he likes boring depressing movies that don't have robots and zombies in them) because he watches this trash.
32. Babylon 5--except perhaps this one; never understood why this Trek takeoff was so well-thought of by my fellow geeks. I found it to be too complicated, with no sympathetic characters.
31. Deadwood

30. Dexter
29. ER --I hate to italicize shows that I hate
28. Fawlty Towers --pretty funny, but I wouldn't call it one of the best tv shows ever
27. Six Feet Under
26. *Red Dwarf --probably very close to having seen every episode

25. *Futurama
24. Twin Peaks --no, really, I've never seen a single episode.
23. The Office UK
22. The Shield
21. Angel

20. Blackadder
19. Scrubs --Seen some of several episodes. I can tell its well-written, but I've never bothered to get into it
18. Arrested Development
17. South Park One of the most noteworthy shows ever, but too inconsistent to be considered one of the best
16. *Doctor Who

15. Heroes --Haven't seen any of the current season, due to frustrations with teh television machines
14. *Firefly
13. Battlestar Galactica
12. Family Guy --I'm guessing I've seen every episode--there aren't that many, and the reruns are on constantly
11.* Seinfeld --Probably the best American sitcom of the post 70's era.
10.* Spaced --Definitely the funniest sitcom I've ever seen
09. The X-Files --Stopped watching when it became more about the soap opera and less about monster hunting. Bo-ring!
08. The Wire
07. Friends I kind of hate to admit that I've probably seen all but some of the last season
06. 24 Brilliantly made, yet I find it unwatchable. Who wants to feel stressed out for a whole hour? Where's the comic relief? Tense and grim is not a good combination. Battlestar leans that way, but has lighter moments to let you relax.

05. Lost --No, I've never seen it either. I'm worried, because you have to watch them all, and supposedly the second season sucked, so I don't really want to start.
04. The West Wing
03. The Sopranos --Well made, but I don't care much for the Italian mobster genre.
02. Buffy the Vampire Slayer --Saw the last half of one episode. I understand that I'm a heretic for not seeking out and watching every episode. I just don't care.
01. *The Simpsons --Despite recent declines (over the past decade) still the best show to ever have been on tv, by a mile.

Did you guess that I don't have cable?
