A List for Your Consideration

While trolling my favorite website, I found a link to this list of the hundred best sci-fi/fantasy series. There are a lot of shows I'm not familiar with, but I generally agree with it. I don't personally like a lot of the shows, but I can respect the fan followings. I hate that Star Trek has to be on top lists, because it bores me to tears, and just because it is old doesn't mean it's any good*. My ~favorite show made number fifteen, which is kind of hilarious based on how awful it's been the last two seasons. Heroes came in at number 80; as a bitter ex-fan, this fills my cold, dead heart with Glee. I've never been able to sit through a whole episode of Dr. Who, so I don't know how good it is. Actually, now that I think about it, number three should be number one, number seven should be number three, and numbers two and ten should switch places.

Questions, comments, complaints?

*please note that this only applies to the original series, because Picard and Janeway were awesome.

I love Supernatural! Awesome series, and I agree with the letdown of the last two seasons. Especially with its very lame season 5 anti-climate not so earth shaking finale.

Agh! I was just about to post this link. Oh well. I was particularly excited to see Buffy at number 6! (And of course Angel at 24 and Firefly at 27)... Go Whedon!
