The following post was originally published on my old blog on February 4, 2009. Updates to this post are noted below.
Under some pretense of being an organized person (ha!), I keep a very meticulous list of the episodes I have yet to see for all the shows I follow. And I’ve noticed definite trends regarding my level of addiction to certain shows—or the lack thereof—as shown in the following categories. (I should point out that this is nowhere near a comprehensive list!)
Must-See TV I want to see it, and I want to see it now.
- Battlestar Galactica
- 30 Rock
- Grey’s Anatomy
Will-See TV I love it, but I might be a few episodes behind.
- Heroes (Update: Lo, how the mighty Heroes has fallen.)
- Mad Men
Might-See TV I’ve liked what I’ve seen, but I have a serious backlog.
- Pushing Daisies
- Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
- True Blood (Update: The more I watch this, the more I love it.)
Should-See TV I know, I know, I have to watch it. So you keep telling me!
- The Wire
- Friday Night Lights
- The Office (Update: I got caught up in April, and this is must-see TV now.)
Won’t-See TV No, thank you.
- Law & Order
- American Idol
