Frisky Dingo (2006)
Day 01 - A show that should have never been canceled



And were it not for the production company going bankrupt, it'd still be on the air. *sigh*

For other shows that fall under this category see my TV shows I still wish were on list.

Day 04 - Your favorite show ever


This is a place holder for pretty much all series devoted to Looney Tunes.

Friends (1994)
Day 05 - A show you hate

Along with far too many others to list, none of which are worthy of images.

Duck Amuck (1953)
Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v. show


...no matter how many times I watch this I still laugh uncontrollably.

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v. show

Anything with Pepe Le Pew, because if you've seen one you've seen them all. He's my least favorite character.

Day 08 - A show everyone should watch



If you don't like the Muppets, there must be something wrong with you.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 4561 Average listal rating (3407 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.7
House M.D. (2004)
Day 09 - Best scene/episode ever

"Broken", in which House underwent rehab for his vicodin addiction (and which should have lasted an entire season instead of one extended episode)


Actually this is just my favorite episode of THIS SHOW. Every show I enjoy watching has at least one episode that's my favorite, and were I to limit this to scenes I'd be stuck forever trying to determine which bit from Monty Python's Flying Circus is my favorite. So here I went with a simpler choice.

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving


At first I didn't like this show, but over time it won me over. I figure that counts, yes?
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 227 Average listal rating (136 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.4
Clerks (2000)
Day 11 - A show that disappointed you

I've only seen the pilot episode, and it was complete crap. Unsurprisingly, after it aired the series was cancelled. Why it's picked up a devoted following since I have no idea.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 204 Average listal rating (140 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7.9
Sealab 2021 (2000)
Day 12 - A t.v. show you’ve watched more than 4 times


I've watched the first 2 seasons at least 4 times since I've had them on DVD. If you go by episodes, I've also seen ones from Invader Zim, Frisky Dingo, Batman the Animated Series, Animaniacs, and tons of the Looney Tunes cartoons too many times to count.

Transformers (1984)
Day 13 - Favorite childhood show

Day 14 - Favorite male character

George Christopher played by Ted Danson


There are many others, but this is my current favorite.

Invader ZIM (2001)
Day 15 - Favorite female character

Gaz played by Melissa Fahn


Also among others.
the giraffe's rating:
Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show


Actually I don't believe in the term "guilty pleasure" because I don't believe in feeling guilty for enjoying something. But many times when watching this show I question whether I should like it at all.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1257 Average listal rating (873 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.8
It (1990)
Day 17 - Favorite mini series

Make that made-for-TV-movie


I've only watched a handful of mini-series, and can't remember enough about them to honestly call one my favorite. That's probably due to my watching them mostly during the 80s, and once I got to high school I quit caring about short-run series. I had better things to do with my time, and have ever since. So instead I chose a movie, and I'll admit I didn't watch many made-for-TV-movies after the early 90s either.

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence


Also: Six Feet Under, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and Venture Bros.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1123 Average listal rating (793 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.8
Day 19 - Best t.v. show cast

Because you can't replace or lose any of them and have it be the same.

Also: Arrested Development, Black Adder, Bored to Death, and Community

People who added this item 789 Average listal rating (584 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 8.3
Day 20 - Favorite kiss

Kevin and Winnie


Because it was the first one I cared about. Now my favorite would be the ones between Ned and Chuck on Pushing Daisies (which you can see in others' lists), but opted to not use them because....

Day 21 - Favorite relationship

Ned and Chuck
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 2689 Average listal rating (1853 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.2
Day 22 - Best pilot episode


...also the series' best episode so far. Hoping season 2 finds the time to equal or outdo it.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 258 Average listal rating (184 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 8.1
Day 23 - Most annoying character

Wanda played by Jamie Foxx

I went with the most annoying character I could think of from shows I actually enjoy. Otherwise this spot could be held by anyone from Fran Drescher's nanny to everyone on Dharma and Greg or Will and Grace or Friends or Gilmore Girls or any number of other crappy shows I've had the misfortune to see any part of.
the giraffe's rating:

The Boondocks (2005)
Day 24 - Best quote


Huey: "Excuse me. Everyone, I have a brief announcement to make. Jesus was black, Ronald Reagan was the devil, and the government is lying about 9-11. Thank you for your time and good night."

or

"Vision? What do you know about my vision? My vision would turn your world upside down, tear asunder your illusions, and send the sanctuary of your own ignorance crashing down around you. Now ask yourself, are you ready to see that vision?"

or MLK Jr.'s speech, which I won't reproduce here.

Again, I could pull favorite quotes from any of my other favorite shows.

Twin Peaks (1990)
Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)


At the time it ran on TV I was too young to appreciate it.

Also: Freaks and Geeks, Dexter, and whatever else is in my Netflix queues I'm not thinking of right now.

Day 28 - First t.v. show obsession
