A Random Pop Culture List

  1. 24

  2. The Sopranos

  4. Battlestar Galactica

  5. Lost

  6. Everwood

  7. Gilmore Girls

I am a faithful viewer of #’s 3 and 5 and a faithful wait-for-the-DVD-set buyer for #’s 1, 2, and 10. I catch up on sporadic episodes of #8 in reruns and syndication. I’ve never seen episodes of #’s 4, 6, 7, or 9 so I guess I’ve got some catching up to do :-)

I am a faithful viewer of 1, 4, 5, 6, and 10. I am a faithful purchaser of dvds for 10. (I've lent my season 1 of The Shield more often than watched it myself. All but one have been converted, and each convert has in turn, converted another. I am a priest in the House of Shield.)

Battlestar Galactica is an awesome series. It is my second favorite on this list, and the fact that I was prepared to hate the tired ol' idea speaks for it even more. Sci Fi makes lousy movies, and great series (in general).

Everwood is my token drama. I'm a huge Treat Williams fan way back from the movie Hair. (Who didn't want to be Burger?) It's not a light and fluffy drama. It has bittersweet endings that are often new beginnings, as drama itself should be. A new viewer would be missing out if they jumped into the middle considering all the evolution the characters have gone through to shape who they are currently.

Did I tell everyone to watch The Shield?
