My Top 5 T.V. Shows (Reshuffled)

1. Everwood
2. My So-Called Life
3. Star Trek
4. M.A.S.H.
5. Jericho

Everwood has reclaimed the number one spot.

It had to.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you will have heard me sing the praises of this excellent show countless times. If not, you can go back and check out these previous posts.

Suffice it to say, Everwood has reclaimed the number one spot because of a few reasons

#1 – Rewatchability – I have watched this entire series three times now. Once during the original run on television and twice on DVD. And I know that I will be able to watch it a fourth time as well. It is that good.

#2 – Acting – How can you not love Treat Williams as Andy Brown? The ensemble cast is equally amazing as well.

#3– Writing – I really like how the series finale wrapped up elements that were first introduced in the pilot. The finale was near perfect television.

I also decided to move up My So-Called Life to the number 2 spot for pretty much the same three reasons. In the process Jericho has been knocked down to number 5. I just found that I’m not as excited about rewatching Jericho as I am for the four other shows. Of course, this doesn’t really take away any of the praise I have for it. I still love the show. Perhaps rewatchability should not be the deciding factor.
