TV Series

You may have noticed that I like rankings and lists and rating items. Besides this neurotic sort of enjoyment, there are practical reasons for keeping a list like this one.  Sometimes, its years between watching tv shows and I cannot recall how I felt about a particular series. This helps. Also, occasionally I come into some money and head on down to the store to pick up some entertainment media. This list helps me prioritize which shows I should blow my cash on and which shows can be kept waiting. Finally, another reason for this is to aid in making my ratings as accurate and effective as possible.

So this is my TV Series ranking – I am certainly not going to rank each individual show against the others. Instead, I set up a tiered system which keeps the stuff orderly and easy to maintain. (Nevertheless, this all remains subject to change if I feel these tiers can be adjusted a bit…..)
