tv meme

It's the TV meme. I'm not sure why I'm doing it -- I'm so totally out of the loop without television, but most of these are old shows, so I've seen them up until we canceled cable (in January) or until we canceled HBO.

Here's that TV meme:

1. Bold the shows you've watched [almost] every episode of
2. Italic the shows you've seen at least one episode more than a few episodes of
3. Post your answers

50. Quantum Leap
49. Prison Break
48. Veronica Mars (I've heard it's good, though)
47. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
46. Sex & The City (I watched the first three seasons when I lived with Jenny, but none after)

45. Farscape
44. Cracker
43. Star Trek
42. Only Fools and Horses (huh?)
41. Band of Brothers

40. Life on Mars (huh?)
39. Monty Python's Flying Circus
38. Curb Your Enthusiasm
37. Star Trek: The Next Generation
36. Father Ted

35. Alias (not a single episode)
34. Frasier (not a single episode)
33. CSI: Las Vegas (not a single episode)
32. Babylon 5 (best sci-fi series ever)
31. Deadwood

30. Dexter (thank you, Netflix Watch Instantly!)
29. ER
28. Fawlty Towers
27. Six Feet Under (I gave up during the last season but saw the finale)
26. Red Dwarf

25. Futurama
24. Twin Peaks (not a single episode)
23. The Office UK
22. The Shield (I had recorded these on the DVR to watch them later, but never got around to it)
21. Angel (not a single episode)

20. Blackadder

19. Scrubs
18. Arrested Development
17. South Park

16. Doctor Who (new version)

15. Heroes
14. Firefly
13. Battlestar Galactica (new version) (I've been told that it's good, though)
12. Family Guy
11. Seinfeld

10. Spaced (huh?)
09. The X-Files
08. The Wire (at least until we canceled HBO at the end of Season 3)
07. Friends (but can't remember a plot of any episode)
06. 24 (I watched one episode at Jenny's house)

05. Lost (until we canceled cable in January)
04. The West Wing (not a single episode)
03. The Sopranos (not the last season; we canceled HBO)
02. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (not a single episode)
01. The Simpsons

I would like to add the following shows to my list since they're in the same vein as the above shows:

51.  Millennium
52.  Carnivale
53.  Nowhere Man
54.  Enterprise
55.  Space: Above and Beyond
56.  American Gothic
57.  Homicide: Life on the Street
58.  Boomtown
59.  Kingpin
60.  The Maxx

I'm not going to properly memetify this or post it to my own journal, but here's the stuff I've seen:

47. Deep Space Nine (an episode or two, not really paying attention; my brother Bill was a fan)
41. Band of Brothers- bits and pieces, I keep meaning to watch the whole thing.

Only Fools and Horses and Life on Mars are British, incidentally. Life on Mars is pretty recent, OFAH is older.

39. Monty Python's Flying Circus- Large chunks thereof, generalized cultural familiarity.
37. Star Trek- TNG- again, Bill was a fan.
36. Father Ted- rented a video of it from Wild and Woolly once. Didn't think it was fun, and don't know why Brian Eno did.
28. Fawlty Towers- in its entirety, I believe.
26. Red Dwarf- The first five series. (I'm being pretentious and using the word the British use instead of "seasons".)
25. Futurama- Reruns here and there.
24. Twin Peaks- was big into this in 1990, have caught the occasional rerun.
23. The Office UK- all of series 1, bits of series 2.
20. Blackadder- Series 2 and 3, I think.
17. South Park- saw one episode in 1997. Thought it sucked, haven't watched since.
16. Doctor Who (2005)- All of Series 1, a good chunk of Series 2, the first episode or two of Series 3. I think all of the Christmas Specials.
14. Firefly- Saw the movie. Thought it was a lame Blake's 7 ripoff.
13. Battlestar Galactica- Saw the first 20 minutes of the TV movie. Thought it sucked and was incomprehensible.
11. Seinfeld- Bits and pieces in syndication.
10. I agree with you. Huh?
09. The X-Files- Saw an episode while visiting college campuses in 1994. Also saw the freakshow episode, I think.
08. The Wire- Still refuse to watch this on the grounds that I don't understand it, but my resolve could break depending on how bored I get and how strong my Homicide: Life On The Street fanboyism gets.
04. The West Wing- My aunt liked the show, so it's been on in the background while I was visiting, especially the episode where he rips Dr. Laura a new one.
01. The Simpsons- The first couple of seasons, then random bits in syndication. Also, the movie.

I would also like to point out that out of my five favorite TV series of all time (Get Smart, The Prisoner, Jeopardy!, MST3K, and Homicide: Life On The Street), precisely ZERO of them made their list. Neither, for that matter, did my #6 show, Brass Eye. Their list is therefore worthless and they should be lit on fire with kerosene like those monks in Vietnam. Their mistake is that they probably asked the INTERNET, which is why it's full up with that stupid sci-fi bullshit instead of REAL MANLY TELEVISION SHOWS like the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Medical Center.

I thought the monks were doing that to make a political statement...

Damn, Dave. Why is it all politics with you? (heh)

I'm with you -- it's always been my roommates that have been Star Trek fans, except for Enterprise. I really liked that show, but it's likely because I've always had a thing for Scott Bakula. I know; it's unhealthy.

I've never seen The Prisoner -- I'll have to add it to my queue. Meanwhile, you should watch The Wire.
