Avatar... Yes, the Nick animated kids show. No one is more surprised than me. Great story, characters, action, and the coolest characters are either [a] girls, [b] old people, [c] disabled, or [d] some combination of the above.
Battlestar Galactica... The new series, of course. What a HUGE surprise this was.
Deadwood... I think Al Swearengen may be the greatest character TV has yet created.
Homicide: Life on the Streets... Better than The Wire. Or at least season 1 of The Wire. Haven't seen the rest yet.
The Office... BBC version
The West Wing
The Cosby Show
Lost... Much rides on how well they wrap it up.
Glad I Saw
Buffy the Vampire Slayer... I only watched a season or two though, I need to give this one a better try.
Heroes... Pretty precipitous decline after season 1, and it seems silly that they're going to have to spend every subsequent season jumping through hoops to keep Peter from just solving all problems in the first episode with his godlike powers. Mohinder is aptly named. "You know what our heroes need? Mo' hindering. There, now that he's thrown a wrench into the works AGAIN we can stretch this out for awhile longer." Still, I can't help myself.
Too Long Ago to Remember, Big Nostalia Though
Stopped Watching Early - Apparently Mediocre
Stopped Watching Early - Apparently Bad
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Stopped Watching Early - Apparently Sucky
- None Yet
Woefully incomplete. Also, generally the ranking is based on the shows peak.
