My readers are no doubt wondering about my all-time television favorites. No? Here’s our list anyway. These are mostly mine, as Kim never watched much tv. Be advised, though, that my senior memory means I have neglected some that should be on the list.
Taxi (because of Andy Kaufman and Christopher Lloyd)
Hill Street Blues
This Is Us
This Old House
Late Night Television
Saturday Night Live (John Belushi era – can’t stay up late enough to watch any more)
Nurse Jackie (binged during Kim’s surgery recovery)
Six Feet Under
The Bachelor/Bachelorette – I’ve blogged previously about what I’ve learned from the shows.
So You Think You Can Dance (My Native American name is “Dances with Difficulty.”)
Survivor (I tried out for this show and made it to a filmed interview. Wrote a piece about my experience, but CBS lawyers threatened me with $5 million fine unless I destroyed all copies. Let me know if you’d like to see it. We don’t watch it any more.)
Civilisation (Sir Kenneth Clarke)
Cosmos (Carl Sagan)
Please email your suggestions for programs or categories to me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. I will make them public in an upcoming post. I’m especially looking for mini-series to watch on Netflix.
The Office (British)
The Office (American)
Parks and Recreation
Better Off Ted
Under Cop Drama:
True Detective (Season One)
You left out science fiction:
I should add that two of these series were cancelled much too early, so that there are only 14 episodes of Firefly (plus a followup theatrical film, Serenity) and only 10 episodes of The Unusuals. Both of those, as well as the British version of The Office (13 episodes, no more were intended), are in effect mini-series.ReplyDelete
