Fifty Greatest TV Shows.

I found this on View from the Hill a little while ago and have only just gotten around to doing it!

Empire Magazine has revealed its list of the 50 Greatest TV Shows ever, so the idea is to show just how much of a telly addict you are by doing the following.... (I am quite sure that my youngest brother will have seen all of them at some point!!)

A. Bold the shows you watch/used to watch.
B. Italic the shows you’ve seen at least one episode of.
C. Post your answers.

50. Quantum Leap
49. Prison Break
48. Veronica Mars
47. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
46. Sex & The City
45. Farscape

Interestingly enough, that does show quite well how I feel about telly - there are a few things that I will sit down to watch nearly every time it's on, but mostly I am not all that interested. Hence all the shows that I have seen just one or two episodes but never really got drawn in!!

Go on - show us what you have watched - you know you want to!!

hmmmm, we could probably watch tv together with minimal fighting! :-)

you've never seen Blackadder? Picks jaw off floor. Next time it's on you must watch it, so clever, so funny, particularly the last series in the trenches.

Well, I can feel real good that I have only watched 4 of these -- all episodes. I have seen about 4 or 5 more a few times, or a couple of seasons.

I'm so proud - this means that I must watch total crap LOL Because the TV is on all day - what in the world am I watching?? hahaha

I guess I am really out of it. I watch "The Office" and maybe one or two of the other shows. For one thing, what is the appeal of Frasier? I never watched a full episode, but I've seen the characters. How did two gay-seeming, lookalike brothers who seem very aristocratic get a shleppy dad like that?

Of these I have seen 11 of them at least one episode. I don't watch much TV - I've only watched about 4 of them regularly.
