Top 5, eh? Hmmm... But it's like choosing between my children! I love them all!
There's not a whole lot that I would say I really love. 5 might be a hard number to reach, actually, but here goes...
1. Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (MST3K)
2. The Ricky Gervais Show
3. Whose Line Is It Anyway
4. Arrested Development
5. ... I just can't think of a fifth. At least, not one that particularly deserves the spot over the others in my head. I HAVE NO FIVE
Won't list the honourable mentions.
While I didn't grow up with MST3K, I wish I had (and like to think I did anyway). The Ricky Gervais Show got introduced to me by the brother about, ooh... a year to two years ago? Brilliant stuff. Will have to check out all the other stuff they've done at some point. Whose Line, well, not as affable to it as the others, but it can be as funny, if not quite often funnier, than the others, so it gets a top spot. And Arrested Development... 'nuff said, really.
I've watched essentially no
television in the last two-and-a-half years, so I've missed Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and all the other stuff I've heard people banging on about since then. And you know what? I really don't mind. (Actually, a friend forced me to watch a handful of TWD and the first episode of GoT. It didn't help.) The sole exception is Archer, which is pretty good.
I thought Stargate Universe was widely regarded as the worst
Stargate. (I can't remark much myself, other than the odd episode of SG-1, I've not really watched any of them.)
