It was easy deciding to participate in Alex J. Cavanaugh’s TV show Blogfest because I’ve always been an avid television viewer. What wasn’t easy was narrowing the list down to just ten because there are so many others deserving to be recognized. (Why do I suddenly feel like I’m giving away a blog award?)
Anyway, after much angst and internal debate, here’s the ten that made the top of my list. They are listed here in completely random order, and yes, I cheated with the Star Treks. Sue me!!
- Law & Order (original)
- Star Trek (Original, TNG, Deep Space Nine, Voyager)
- Magnum PI
- The West Wing
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
There was one other show that I had in my list until the very last cut, but ultimately I removed it because technically it didn’t complete one full season. Those of you who’ve seen the show will understand just how much of a colossal mistake FOX made when they cancelled this show! Anyway, even though it didn’t make my top ten, I couldn’t in good conscious upload a post about excellent TV without mentioning it.
There’s one common element in all of these shows that stands out and I hope makes you realize what drew me to them. Good writing.
