Back in 2013, I undertook the challenge of profiling the television programs that constitute my personal Top Ten list. I don’t claim that these are the ten greatest series of all time; that would be presumptuous. However, I do presume to identify those shows that mean the most to me. These aren't academic histories or encyclopedic entries; rather, they’re personal memories of shows that, through the years, have brought me delight, influenced my way of thinking and doing, left their indelible traces imprinted on me. Think of it as a memoir of my life as seen on TV.

Lists like this aren't static, of course. Click here for shows that might have been added to the Top Ten if I were compiling it today. And for the shows in the original top 25, click here.


  1. A fair list, my personal favorite is Doctor who.

    1. It was there for me as well for a long time. I'd say that all through the time I watched the classic version, it was at #1.

  2. Alvin show!!! I feel I have found my soulmate)) Loved it in childhood and even now turn it on when working on reviews for essay writing services. Luckily my son doesn't mind!
