Top 5 TV shows

I am a big movie enthusiast, indeed I am. Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, The Wachowski Brothers, Woody Allen, etc, are film makers whose film making skills I admire. I think the super hero movies of the last decade for the most part have been quite good. The Spiderman movies are fantastic, and so are the X-men movies. I even liked the Incredible Hulk movie!

TV is a different matter. I don't watch TV that much. I was thinking about TV shows today and my conclusion is that there are far too many reality TV shows. I mean - Survivor, rich bachelors, talent shows of different kinds, Big Brother, etc, it's just too much.

I do however like a few TV shows, and I try to watch these if I have time. Here they are in order of greatness:

  1. Corner Gas - What is life like in Dog River, Saskatchewan? This is comedy of the decade, believe you me.
  2. Man Tracker - the chase is on! A real reality show! Send off the prey into the bush with a compass and map. Give them a head start, then send out Man Tracker to hunt them down! Great show.
  3. Heroes - well made US drama show.
  4. Prison Break - another impressive US drama show, although they probably should have stopped after the first season.
  5. Survivorman - One man... no food, no water, no nothing but a camera. Another Canadian show that is great!

There you have it, my favourite 5 TV shows! I probably forgot some, and I probably watch more TV than I care to admit... Oh yeah, Family Guy is very funny, and Simpsons of course. Gotta have a smile now and then!
