I'm not going to post the whole list, just those relevant to me (=those I've watched!)
29.Saved By The Bell
24.Ren & Stimpy
16.Batman the Animated Series
15.Star Trek the Next Generation
7.Freaks and Geeks
1.Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Hmm, not too bad, 22 out of 50, that makes me a 44% TV geek, I guess.
(yes, I haven't watchewd the Office or the Wire, or 24. Deal with it or move on ;) )
And there's no arguing that these series belong in the Top 50. Sure, I wouldn't place Firefly on spot 11 (above Star Trek? really?) or Family Guy above Transformers.
As for what I would use to fill the gaps?
SIX FEET UNDER (deserves to be in the Top 10 as much as The Sopranos does)
ANGEL (see above, but Buffy, or better yet have it replace Firefly)
SEX AND THE CITY
FRIENDS (kinda obvious. and WILL & GRACE by extention)
BEVERLY HILLS 90210 (hey, if Saved By The Bell gets the cut, this one is even bigger in terms of teen culture impact)
any other recommends?
