Anyone who knows me, will understand that this is a hard decision because I have 100+ TV series on DVD. However, they also know that there’s a few shows that will always be my favorites. So, here’s my list:
Joss Whedon’s short-lived space-western. I can watch those 13 episodes over and over. It’s one series that doesn’t have a single episode I dislike. I always say, “If you haven’t experienced Joss, you haven’t lived.” His cast and crew worked great on this show.
I grew up on this show. It could easily be at the top of this list. I can almost recite every episode. Now, that’s dedication to a TV series.
Yes, another Joss Whedon show. This is the best spin-off I’ve seen yet. It tops Buffy because it was more serious. It asked life’s great questions. It helped teach me that everything in life isn’t black and white.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
This is here mostly because it introduced me to Joss Whedon (that’s 3 if you’re counting). It was the first TV show where I felt like the writers and directors built more on character development than plot.
- Battlestar Galactica
This is my current favorite. I initially picked it up because I was in a sci-fi mood. I figured it would be some B-rated series, but it turned out to be much more than that. I have a feeling it might be in my top list of shows for some time to come.
It’s very hard to stop typing names of shows right now. I could probably break it down into a top five in drama and sitcom, then further into a few sub-categories of each one. This list could change in a few years’ time. Or, tomorrow. I’m always looking for the show that can top this list.
