Avi’s TV Hall of Fame

I have pretty simple criteria to make it into my TV Hall of Fame. A show must have completed its run. That’s it. I believe that only by looking at a show’s run in its totality is it possible to judge it fully. It’s a pretty eclectic list as my taste is pretty broad. Without further ado, here it is. Let me know your favourite shows.

    Avi – what would you say are your top shows in each cateogry that you watch now? I mean, we can tell from your comentary what you like, but if you could only watch a limited number of current shows, what would they be?

    Good question. I’ll be posting my favourites of 2006 in the next week or so. I’m just having trouble narrowing the list.

    Wheres The Wire best US tv has to offer!

  6. avster says:

    I’ve limited myself to shows that have completed their runs. I don’t want to put shows up that don’t live up to their potential by the end of the run.
    Do not fear. The Wire will be on this list the minute it finishes its run.

    Unfortunately, It was just announced Jericho has been cancelled. Said it just lost steam, and too long a hiatus. I hope they at least do a two hour movie to wrap things up. What a waste of a season to just leave it hanging…..
