Also missing, Star Trek TNG
Hasn't aged well, IMO. I don't think it belongs. Plus, they seemed to have wanted to avoid duplications of series that are closely related, and the original Star Trek was already there.
Buffalo Bill didn't have to go beyond one season. It's still one of the absolute best things ever put on tv.
Northern Exposure is the biggest mistake. It would probably be #1 on my list and extremely high on most critics' lists.
The Rockford Files is another one that jumps out at me. The show is over 30 years old but it still holds up well in reruns.
No Wonder Years...that's it, this list loses all credibility.
My work is done.
The list is of the best tv shows, not series, though, so the Charlie Brown special is clearly appropriate. The Day After is a little more questionable. I think it was more culturally significant than it was actually a good show. I think including MTV's heyday was brilliant. An enjoyable, important time in the development of tv, but one that didn't involve "shows" per se.
As for Dr. Who, I know it's a beloved show for many sci-fi fans, but it just wasn't that great a show. It was often fun and always goofy, but not great.
I'm sure glad Soap made it... It had to be one of the funniest shows of all time. I wish they would bring in back on some channel so I could watch it all over again.
Wow, that's a pretty gigantic omission!
How the hell does the Real World end up in there? It had a unique premise but they pimped it out so badly for ratings that it lost any possible credibility long ago.
The Real World created reality television as we know it. There are a fair number of shows on the list that went to sh*t before the end of their run, and few of those had the impact on television as The Real World had.
I just noticed the The Phil Silvers Show (aka Sgt. Bilko) isn't there. Strange, because it usually turns up on lists like this, and deservedly so. One of the funniest shows ever.
