Sepinwall's "Best TV of the '00s" List

    I thought he did a pretty solid job. There is a reason he's the best person writing about television in virtually any medium.

    I still think that 30 Rock is maybe the most overrated show out there -- and I say this as a fan and regular viewer -- but I'm trying to come up with a more major quibble with the comedies/drams sections and I can't.

    Onion's AV Club did something similar.

    They didn't up the comedies and dramas though


    Without having read every word Sepinwall did, I don't see a lot of variation.

    I'm surprised that Nip/Tuck didn't make it on the "Seasons" list.

    I know a lot of people don't like "My Name is Earl," but I thought it was consistently very good. Also, whether under imports or seasons, Season 1 of "The Tournament" should be on there. Season 2 sucked rocks, but fortunately it was never shown in the U.S. But season one is the greatest, most painful look ever at youth sports culture.

    And I can't believe Sepinwall left out "Futurama." My 12-year-old son, a Futurama addict, will be quite upset. And that "The Colbert Report" was left off, too.

    But all in all, pretty solid lists.

    I think "The Wire" is destined to be the TV equivalent of "It's a Wonderful Life" for me. The classic show that I will somehow never get around to watching.

    Never seen a single episode of Lost, Mad Men or Deadwood. But I love West Wing, The Wire, The Shield and The Sopranos.

    If you liked "The Sopranos" and "The Wire," you'll like "Deadwood."

    That's the holy trinity of series' for me.

    (Rewatching the entire 'Wire' now, vis a vis Netflix.)

    Same here. Like countless other shows, I just haven't sought it out.

    I'm well-versed when it comes to current music, but am soooooo out of the loop with TV and film. Hell, I think fucking "Superbad" was the last movie I saw in the theaters.

    I'll give Deadwood a look. A friend of mine said the constant usage of cocksucker is a bit much, but I may have to check it out.

    I liked Sopranos and The Wire, and never warmed to Deadwood. Thought Rome was superior.

    Weird... I couldn't find a word about Modern Family from Sepinwall, but oodles of type for Recreation and other shows
