The list author says: "After growing up with a heart felt disdain for tv series, I met Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the late nineties, and since then I have to have a tv series to watch. Here are my favorites in order of excellence."
"Drama, action and wit - a show doesn't get much better than this. The latest and best installment of Joss Whedon's trade mark cross-genre writing. Got the axe far too soon, but stil a gem. Get the movie sequel 'Serenity', too."
"An entertaining peek into the White House, with a witty, fast paced dialogue, interesting characters and thought provoking political and ethical issues. Takes a dip in its fourth season, but still supremely watchable."
"Smart writing, good pace, interesting plot lines, real emotion. Teen show, but not dumb. Feisty heroine. Why on earth did it get the axe? The end of third season does leave you hanging, but I still recommend the ride. Buffy meets Marlowe."
"A company specialises in spotting the tell tale signs that someone is lying. Has strong similarities with House, except the science this time is actually worth hearing, and the characters are slightly less clearly drawn and therefore less interesting. Also a little heavy-handed on the moralising."
"Whedon's newest and weakest series, though that won't tell you much. Very sleek and sorely lacking the usual laughs, but still thoughtful and entertaining at the same time. Looking forward to season 2."
"Superman's growing up in Smallville, and at its best Smallville's episodes remind you of early Buffy. But the picture perfect family life, boring gender characterisation and lack of humor are more appropriate for a cereal commercial. As the seasons drag on the main characters' lack of acting skills start to annoy."
