Update!

Ok, so my deepest thanks to everyone, my friends and newbies alike who stop in to take a look at this one. I've had it for a while and haven't really found much use for it. Until just lately, I've come to realize just how much I needed to broaden my scope regarding the small screen.

There are like, SO MANY shows being produced now. Now that Netflix and Amazon are in on it. Honestly, I was watching the Primetime Emmys just the other day, I couldn't believe just how few titles I actually recognized??? I think there were about two or three I was actually watching. That really makes me feel alien and disconnected sometimes.

I don't have time -at least, not right now- to watch everything I've just lately added to my list, but I still intend to try and maintain, and update it whenever I can. I'm still gonna be adding reviews to it and by all means, if anyone feels like commenting and recommending titles, feel free in the comments section below. Although, just recently, I've been toying around with the idea of wanting to make this a user-interactive list. Since poll lists are a lot more fun and usually give me a better sense of who actually reads my stuff. But I'm still undecided, what do you guyz think?

If I decide to, I'll probably do like on my After Ellen/Elton lists -due to the size- and give Listal users the chance to vote twice. Two sets of 10, with each #1 getting 10 points. If I get enough demands for this change I'll go through with it. Thanks for stopping in and reading;D...

This may be hard to believe but I DON'T WATCH A LOT OF TELEVISION. Yeah yeah, I know how that sounds, and I'm not just saying that just to sound cool like Vincent Vega. It's really the truth but it's not like I intended it to be that way. Honestly, I just don't know what to watch. I hate reality shows like herpes and if I'm ever caught watching one it's usually cause people won't shut the f*** up about them like "the Osbornes". The only kinds of reality shows I do like to watch are the kind that don't make the Human Race look like an invading alien race could literally topple us in a matter of 2 seconds! -I'll watch stuff that comes on the Discovery Channel or History cause I don't like having my intelligence insulted. -But the only reason I mention this is cause it seems the best scripted tv shows always gotta go to HBO and I don't get HBO where I live and honestly - I just can't keep up with everything anymore. You virtually have to watch television purely through DVDs now and they always gotta cost you the deed to your house to purchase, a guy could go into 'bankruptcy' trying to stay up to date with "Dexter" or "Breaking Bad".

So perhaps I'm being a bit bias but it's in my experience that most of the best shows that the ol' boob tube has had to offer have come and gone. Perhaps that's a sign of how ridiculously old I'm starting to get (I say that cause I'm not even out of my 20s yet - this is f***ing ridiculous y'all!) but unless somebody directs me to a new show as a personal favor to them and I get around to watching it, this list is a totality of the best of the best television I have seen, how I rank it, and why I like it - and why I think you should too. I don't do much work on this list so it might take a while to get up to date, so my readers will have to be patient.

I mostly started this list as a companion piece to my other tv list made up of my favorite animated series and I'd very much appreciate it if y'all checked it out sometime:

For now, lemme know what y'all think, and I thank you all for stopping in and reading. I hope y'all like what you read, and I'll just to add what I can when I get the spare time. Thanx!
