Two of my top ten shows are on your list (I’ve never made a top ten list of shows, but I have a general idea what they would be if I did). That’s awesome for me; not awesome for you, as you probably should check them out if you get a chance.

Other ones somewhere in my top 10…
Wonderfalls
Angel (the Buffy spin-off, which was better than Buffy towards the end, and IMO features the best progression of a character in the history of television)
Arrested Development
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Battlestar Galactica (the new one)
The Office (British and U.S.)
Late Night with David Letterman

Ooh, I made a list within your list. How follow-the-leader of me. And if I did the math correctly, combining my impromptu list with the ones in your list that are on my list, I have 9 of my top 10. What’s the tenth? The world will never know (The State). Damn it.

Another great reason for you to watch Firefly is a common expression used in every episode at least a dozen times:

“Shiny”

It means “Great!” or “I agree” or “Let’s do this thing” or “whatever” or just about anything else you want it to mean.

Firefly, Buffy and Angel are three of my favorite shows EVER on television. Too bad no one watched Firefly and/or FOX fucked it up. 5 seasons of that would have been awesome!

Dude…you’ve never seen Buffy????? I don’t even know you anymore! 😉

Seriously though, the only one of these shows I have not seen is JAG. Until this weekend, I’d never seen Twin Peaks. I’m always watching new stuff in syndication lately so I’m hard pressed to find something of which I have not seen one episode.

But again, back to Buffy. Can we talk?

I’ve never watched The Wire either, but when I found it on sale for $90 at Best Buy and realized I had $30 in Best Buy gift cards, I went ahead and bought it. Now it’s just a matter of finding time to watch it.

You’ve never seen “Buffy”?!?! How is that possible? Wow….I have to go lay down from this news. And put in a “Buffy” DVD.

I’ve seen 1 or 2 episodes of JAG, nothing special there. The rest I haven’t watched.

Going to lay down now…..

Mind boggling. Utterly mind boggling. These are all excellent shows (though Joan of Arcadia did falter quite a bit in the second season).

I guess I can understand Murder She Wrote (though I did find it entertaining). But BUFFY and FIREFLY?!? Something is definitely wrong here…

So is that the actual DVD cover art for The Wire or is that like a DVD box set bonus pack-in? Some sets give you keychains or T-shirts. But wire? Damn, now that’s practical. I like it!

I don’t think I’ve seen a full episode of Buffy either, but I did get into Angel after the fact. I thought it was a decent show. Mostly I watched it because it was on the hour before Charmed came on TNT.

Quite frankly, your lack of Buffy and Firefly is disturbing.

I highly recommend “The Wire.” Authentic cop stuff. Really. My cop LOVES that show. And I loved “Joan of Arcadia.”

I’ve never seen an episode of any of the rest of them.

What’s Plagiarism Week?

I too have never watched one show that you mentioned above. What does this mean???? You are so becoming one of my favorite people 🙂 I love watching reruns of 3rd Rock From The Sun late at night.

I’ve only watched Buffy from all of the above. I don’t do any CBS shows except for “The Big Bang Theory” which is hilarious!

What do you have against Joss Whedon!? *shrieks and cries* You’d love the campy writing of Buffy and Firefly. Gosh did you even boycott Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog? Heresy!

I, like, everyone else am saddened and shocked by the lack of Buffy and Firefly in your viewing life. And I cannot emphasize *enough* how incomplete you are as a human being because of it. You’ve got to go watch the these shows. Now. Just stop what you’re doing, find the DVDs, and start watching them. 🙂

You’ve never seen Firefly?!

I am so incredibly disillusioned of you, sir.

I think I’ve seen a couple episodes of Joan of Arcadia (my wife liked the show) but like you, I’ve not seen those other ones.

Is that Jason Bateman in the Firefly picture? I’ve never seen it so I wouldn’t know.

I thought for sure the other show your Mom watched was going to be Columbo.

I am kind of shocked about the firefly thing as well. I got into it through mindsay, from the WTF crew.

I also haven’t watched much Buffy, but it must be better than first glance would leave one to believe. Joss Whedon (buffy, firefly…) has a new show coming out (on FOX… yikes) called Dollhouse, by the way.

I don’t know if you’ve seen freaks and geeks, but that was on my list until I finally bought the complete series for my girlfriend.
