Television Top 10 TV Lists

jlhfan624 posted on May 27, 2011 at 06:36PM
So I stole this idea from EllaBlack's link, and fanfly stole the idea for link, so now I'm making one for this spot.

It's simple:
First person gives a topic for a list of tv-related things. Next person to comment makes their list, and then gives a new topic for the next person. They can be anything - favorite characters (male/female), favorite finales, favorite casts, etc. Have fun!

Best series premieres

1. Supernatural
2. The X-Files
3. Fringe
4. FireFly (the real first episode)
5. 21 Jump Street
6. Charmed
7. Heroes
8. Angel
9. Are You Afraid of the Dark?
10. Boy Meets World

Most annoying finale cliffhangers (also name season)
over a year ago jlhfan624 said…
1. Season 2 - 24
2. Season 5 - 24
3. Season 4 - My Name is Earl
4. Season 1 - Ghost Whisperer
5. Season 2 - The OC
6. Season 3 - Nip/Tuck
7. Season 4 - Home Movies (it was a series finale, and not really a cliffhanger, but they could have started another season or spinoff series after it!!)
8. Season 2 - Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles
9. Season 1 - Lipstick Jungle
10. Season 8 - 24 (because I want a movie dammit!!!)

I'm sorry, I was really reaching for some of those. They aren't all "cliffhangers" but I don't watch too many shows that would have those.

Best second episodes (you can do by season too)
