Here's the list. The top 10 (#1 to #10) are "The Sopranos," "Seinfeld," "The Twilight Zone," "All in the Family," "M*A*S*H," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Mad Men," "Cheers," "The Wire," and "The West Wing."
Obviously, my list would look somewhat different, but to be fair, I don't get premium cable so I haven't watched "Sopranos" or "The Wire," and some of older shows were well before my TV watching days.
Anyway, there are some interesting selections and omissions. In case you're wondering, "24" does make the list in a tie for #71 (with "Roseanne"??). I'll admit that "24" often fell short with its repetitive "moles" in CTU, secretive bad guys behind the obvious ones, and too many "perimeters" that looked more like sieves. But one can poke holes at lots of these sorts of flaws, including in another of my favorite shows, "The X-Files," which shows up at #26. I mean, how long could Dana Scully deny the obvious existence of aliens and monsters?
It's very interesting that "Star Trek" (original series) is at #33 while "Star Trek: Next Gen" is down in a tie for #79. Now, I adore seasons 1 and 2 of the original series, and while there were some well-written episodes, the depth and complexity of "Next Gen" makes the original series look like something for Kindergarteners by comparison.
While we're on the subject of the Star Trek universe, if you're going to have the original series and "Next Gen" on, how can you omit "Deep Space Nine," which (in my view) was easily the best Star Trek series? "Next Gen" still suffered from Gene Roddenberry's ridiculous edict that humanity had eliminated all interpersonal conflict by the 23 century, so the characters are in some sense, blandly two-dimensional. Picard was ever so proper, Worf devotedly loyal, and so on. Compare that to "Deep Space Nine," where the characters are three-dimensional. The omission of "Deep Space Nine" is all the more inexplicable considering the relatively high placement of the reimagined "Battlestar Galactica" (#38), with both shows largely the brainchild of Ronald D. Moore.
Another weird omission, given law dramas "Law & Order" (at #43) and "L.A. Law" (at #55) is "The Practice," which seems less dated, less glitzy, and better acted than "L.A. Law."
Maybe I'll come up with my own list at some point. There won't be any sitcoms on it (well, maybe "Married . . . with Children").
