What are your top 10 favorite TV shows of all time? This can include any type of TV show (Drama, Comedy, Reality, etc...)
1.) Dexter (Lindsay, Manos Jr., Hall)
2.) Justified (Yost, Olyphant)
3.) The Mentalist (Heller, Baker)
4.) Chuck (Schwartz, Levi)
5.) Monk (Breckman, Shalhoub)
6.) Arrested Development (Hurwitz, Bateman)
7.) House (Shore, Laurie)
8.) Lie to Me (Baum, Roth)
9.) Moonlight (Koslow, O'Loughlin)
10.) Psych (Franks, Roday)
Honorable Mentions: Community, The Office, John Doe, The Ultimate Fighter, South Park, Lost, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory, White Collar, Kyle XY, Glee
As I watch more shows, my list will change. It will be VERY difficult for anything to knock "Dexter" from the top spot though. Everything else is pretty replaceable. I'm only 9 episodes into "Lost", so it may move up to the top 10 if I continue to like it.
CrazyEight wrote:Ok, so a "Lost" update. The second season (I'm a little over half way through it) really goes back and forth. I'll like one episode, and hate the next. It's not as solid and consistent as the first season. My issues with it so far are:
1.) Michelle Rodriguez pisses me off. Even move so then she did in "Avatar". She just bugs the hell out of me.
2.) Charlie has always been a little creepy, but this baby "stealing" stuff is crazy.
3.) John Locke has always been my favorite character! But the last few episodes he's been a real prick.
4.) The "every other episode is good" thing.
5.) People always seeing crap (hallucinations or whatever you want to call them) every episode is getting old.
The good of season 2 (so far...)
1.) Mr. Echo is awesome.
2.) The characters are developing more.
3.)Shannon is dead.
4.) The secret about the "others" is finally out.
So, overall I'm enjoying the show. But, I can't really see why people are saying its one of the best shows ever (at least not yet). To "Lost" fans, will it get better, or does the second season kind of set the "tone" for the rest of the series?
- Stay patient during the early stages of S3. The season finale of S3 is amazing, along with several eps before that. Basically the first 6 eps are regarded as meh, the rest all continously get better most of the time (with some exceptions)
- Don't be surprised when you reach S6 and you start hating it (or you might like it). And the final reveal in the final episode..........not that great.
- S5 is jarring if you think about it in the context of the series. Very science-fictionish but don't lose your head over it.
