I loved 29, 24, 18 (the season I saw), 12, 7, 6, 5, 3 and 2 - but where is Queer as Folk?? Disappointed that this show was not on the list. Another one that I loved - My So Called Life -

Yay, Lost is up there :D

No Big Love? That's surprising...a lot of people here in the Boston area love it... always talking about it.

A lot of my all-time favorites are on the list:
"Buffy," "Firefly," "Beauty & the Beast," "Twilight Zone," "Star Trek," "Dark Shadows," and newer favorites "Lost," "Veronica Mars" and "Jericho." I'm a sci-fi geek and proud of it! Cool list! :-)
