In an early, draft of this list, we had Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” ranked as high as #2, but over time it slid down to#6.
The show: “Nurse Jackie“
Synopsis: A Vicodin addicted nurse tries to balance a hectic work life with a messy love life Debuted: June 9th, 2009
Our take: I started [...]
Danny McBride’s HBO comedy, “Eastbound & Down,” comes in at #7. Of the 3 half hour comedies in our top 10, this is easily the foulest.
The show: “Eastbound & Down“ Synopsis: Former professional baseball star returns home in shame to teach a high school gym class before mounting his comeback attempt. Debuted: February 15th, [...]
Crap! Fall is here and we’ve falling behind on our rankings. Let’s try to speed this up. “True Blood” is up at number 8. The show is incredibly faithful to the whole vampire thing… and by that I mean it sucks.
Please pass the remote.

Part serial killer thriller, part good teens gone bad, Australian indie “Acolytes” is the kind of horror movie they should be making more of. I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to this genre, and I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

The show: “Dollhouse“ Synopsis: The Dollhouse is an underground organization that uses new technology to program [...]
The 14th best show is something of an anomaly in that the pilot was released this spring, but the rest of the series will not air until next fall. With just one episode to judge, it probably got docked a few points. Looking purely at potential, we could have put it a few spots higher. [...]
We’re back with Number 15, which happens to be our only animated offering of the year.
The Life & Times of Tim
The show: “The Life and Times of Tim” Synopsis: Tim is a normal guy (for a cartoon), who finds himself in many an awkward/inappropriate situation. It’s kinda like an animated “It’s Always Sunny [...]
