From the Culture War... to the Pop Culture War
Ok, to start things off, list your top 10 favorite tv shows of all time and the top 5 shows from when you were a kid (pre-college at minimum).
Provide 1-2 sentence explanation for why that show made the list.
To make things easy to follow, and to encourage audience participation, just respond in the comments section below. Unwarranted and immature criticism of other people's choices is encouraged.
To start things off, here are my choices:
TJ'S TOP TEN SHOWS OF ALL TIME
1. Kolchak: The Night Stalker -- I love everything about this show. There was a Kolchak marathon on Sci-Fi channel the day of the inauguration and, if I could have convinced the other SCG's, that is how we would have spent the day.
2. The A-Team. I question your manhood if you don't like this show.
3. The X-Files. Lasted too long, but it was good.
4. The Simpsons. I don't need to explain it.
5. WKRP in Cincinnati. Deserving of the Silver Sow.
6. The Rockford Files. James Garner made living in a trailer seem cool.
7. The Drew Carey show. One of the main characters is named "Lee Harvey Oswald." There is a really unpredictable side to this show that I like... particularly anything that deals with Oswald's breast implants, or "Drug-Co" and an Orangalope (cross between an orangutan and an antelope).
8. Seinfeld. It was funny and it was a show that I never missed.
9. NYPD Blue. Awesome show. Plus nudity! Alas, mostly male (but not always!).
10. Arrested Development. My brother bought me season 1 and it is fall down funny. I don't watch it week to week, admiittedly, so when it gets cancelled, it is my fault.
Yes, I am aware that I am the only one who will not have "Cheers" on their list.
TJ'S TOP FIVE SHOWS (Childhood Edition)
1. WKRP in Cincinnati
2. Land of the Lost - It doesn't hold up well when you see the old shows now, but at the time, it was pretty cool.
3. Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries - Very very cool show, with the creepy looking maze during the opening credits. Always a disappointment when it was a Nancy Drew Mystery week.
4. The Jeffersons - C'mon. You know you agree.
5. Planet of the Apes: The Series.
Honorable mentions: Mork and Mindy; Gilligans Island (obviously);S.W.A.T.; The Brady Bunch (sadly); Happy Days, Three's Company, and The Muppet Show. Fraggle Rock doesn't make the cut, though.
I can't believe that "Hill Street Blues" did not make anyones list. Being a displaced WNYer I was always brought back by the use of Buffalo street names. AND the show was extremely watchable.
