Ranking Favorite Shows
It's terribly easy for me to say what my favorite show is, after all. And even if you separate old and new Doctor Who into two separate shows, they're both at the top. It's not just another television show, after all, when you've made hundreds of friends and acquaintances because of it. And unlike many shows, I'll watch old episodes at any time.
But really, it is difficult to compare shows-in-progress with shows that are finished. Right now I'm as engaged with Lost and Heroes like I was with Babylon 5 or The X-Files at their peak, and Jekyll is getting the sort of attention that I would have previously given Ultraviolet.
But even as I think Heroes vs Lost discussions are unfair, and I think comparing shows across decades is especially difficult, especially as television productions have matured over the years.
