That Telly Is Srs Bsns Meme

I have adapted the rules because there are not enough categories for my liking:

1. Bold the shows you've seen every single episode of.
2. Underline the shows you've seen almost every episode of. (i.e. ones you make a point of seeking out/consider yourself a fan of)
3. Italicise the shows you've seen at least one episode of.

(I'm defining the pool of episodes available to have seen as the ones that have been broadcast on non-pay services in the UK where a show has had UK transmission.)

50. Quantum Leap
49. Prison Break
48. Veronica Mars
47. Sisko Star Trek
46. Sex and the City
45. Farscape
44. Cracker
43. Kirk Star Trek
42. Only Fools and Horses
41. Band of Brothers

40. Life on Mars
39. Monty Python's Flying Circus
38. Curb Your Enthusiasm
37. Picard Star Trek
36. Father Ted
35. Alias
34. Frasier
33. CSI: Las Vegas
32. Babylon 5
31. Deadwood

30. Dexter
29. ER (kind of fallen off the wagon on this one lately, but big fan for a long time)
28. Fawlty Towers
27. Six Feet Under
26. Red Dwarf (Series eight doesn't actually count, so it's OK I've missed a few)
25. Futurama
24. Twin Peaks
23. The Office (UK) (and after seeing an episode, never again; there's the comedy of embarrassment and there's making me squirm for half an hour and expecting me to think of it as entertainment)
22. The Shield
21. Angel (and the continuation comics ...)

20. Blackadder
19. Scrubs
18. Arrested Development
17. South Park
16. Doctor Who
15. Heroes
14. Firefly
13. NuBSG
12. Family Guy
11. Seinfeld

10. Spaced
9. The X-Files (bold up to about season 6)
8. The Wire
7. Friends (I assume I've seen them all now, thanks to E4 not having any other programming at all)
6. 24 (gave up after series 2)
5. Lost
4. The West Wing (on DVD all the way through in order more than once)
3. The Sopranos (have it all on DVD but haven't actually got round to watching the last couple of series)
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and the Season 8 comics ...)
1. The Simpsons

And I'm sorry, but the list is obviously wrong. I know 15/16 year olds who've heard of everything on this list, which just proves the wrongness (though bless their little cotton socks, they're all huge fans of Whose Line on Dave, so there's hope for them). If it's going to be this full of genre and comedy stuff, where's Sapphire and Steel? Where's Hancock's Half Hour? Where, pray tell, are The Avengers? (And Alias is cracky fun, but no way does it deserve to be there.)

Badly done, Empire readers, badly done.
