BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
All arguments of this kind are, of course, highly subjective. The one glaring area of complaint I have is Firefly not being rated higher. But its in the top ten and he says great things about it so I really have no basis for argument except personal preference.
I would've rated that one higher, too.
I'd definitely place QUANTUM LEAP higher than 43rd. And THE DRESDEN FILES ranks 55th after two episodes? Huh?The guy claims to have eliminated BUFFY, ANGEL, and others because they're not exclusively sci-fi TV. Neither was QUANTUM LEAP, nor is DRESDEN and yet there are on the list.
Definitely an attempt to be witty while working away at what he loves...because if he thinks TWILIGHT ZONE or X-FILES were all sf, he don't know sf. And some of these shows weren't/aren't better than anything, except maybe THREE'S COMPANY and WHAT'S HAPPENING!...and probably E.A.R.T.H. FORCE, one he leaves off, though clearly not for qualitative reasons. They're doing a new BIONIC WOMAN, you know...woof.
It would have been nice to see Captain Video or Tom Corbett in there somewhere if only for nostalgiac reasons.
