Other Shows We Like
Regular commenter MR2686 posed the question to another regular; so what are your other favorite shows apart from Chuck?
Make no mistake, I always hope for this to be a Chuck site first and foremost, but this could be a fun sidebar for a little bit; and it sounds like a good community building exercise to me…
After the jump I’ll talk about mine, and I look forward to everyone’s input.
Well looks like I may be late to the party, as this discussion already got going on another thread. But as that thread was already huge, let’s try to make a fresh start of it here.
The original question was top five. Its hard for me to be that restrictive; so I think I’ll do two lists, one of only current shows, and the other for all time.
My current top five would be
3. Person of Interest
So a few thoughts. Very sad not to have Chuck on that list. Burn Notice would have been on it for a long time, but just isn’t anymore; and after tonight it no longer qualifies as “current” anyway. At any given time I have about ten shows I’m watching, so this list is about half of what I watch. I usually have a couple of sit-coms going (currently “The Middle” and “Last Man Standing”) but I really don’t take pure comedies seriously enough to count them. I could just broadly say “football”; I’m a huge NFL junkie and Bears fan, but that seems like some sort of cheat.
My all time list
4. Babylon 5
2. Rockford Files
I could broadly say “Star Trek”, I loved every incarnation of it, but no version can quite make this list. My favorite comedies would be “Newhart”, “The Simpsons” and “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”. I have to admit to having a life long man-crush on James Garner, certainly my favorite television actor.
I thought about doing movies too, but I think that gets way too complicated. So don’t be shy (like that’s ever a problem!), and don’t worry about repeating yourself if you already weighed in on the other thread.
