Television Essentials

This is a list of television seasons that I believe are essential viewing. Only shows that I have seen will be included.  As such, this is not meant to be a "definitive" list in any way; it will undergo revision and expansion as I watch more shows and reconsider those I have already seen. All entries on this list meet one or more of the following criteria:

1. I believe they are culturally significant in some way. 
2. I believe they contribute something to television as a medium. 
3. I believe they offer a unique or unorthodox viewing experience. 
4. I admire or respect their craft. 
5. I believe they are exceptional pieces of entertainment. 

List is ordered alphabetically by title.
