I came across a piece in the Winnipeg Free Press where the writer’s and editor’s compiled a list of their top ten TV shows. I am impressed by their amazing taste in TV, and this really only cements my idea that Canada is actually an awesome place. While most people would like to go down to Florida (and I’ve been – it’s nice and they have good grouper to eat), I’d actually prefer to take a vacation up to Canada!
The shows the The Canadian Press selected: Arrested Development, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Friday Night Lights, Gilmore Girls, Lost, The Office (UK), The Sopranos, 30 Rock, Veronica Mars, The Wire. (Honorable mentions: Band of Brothers, Freaks & Geeks, Rescue Me, Survivor, Curb your Enthusiasm.)
Is The Canadian Press trying to get into my pants, OR WHAT? I mean, even if I don’t agree with 100% of their picks – on account of never having seen The Wire… that is a damn good list. It’s a list that I would bow down to! They actually acknowledged quality, substantial shows rather than …you know, crap. My heart SOARS to see that shows like American Idol, Grey’s Anatomy and Brothers & Sisters are not on the list.
