I was thinking the other day, I love a recommendation – but I’ve seen pretty much all the proper big shows of the past 20 ish years and I wondered if I could put them together in a list whether I could get to 100, and also whether it would reveal shows that I’ve clearly missed out on.
This is pretty much a testament to how I’ve watched too much television over the past 20 years, but still. If you’ve not seen any of these, I recommend you try them out!
Some were cancelled ‘too soon’ in my mind, most of them were fully realised shows. I ignored shows I look back on with hate, like Glee for example, which was just trash. This 100 is a bona-fide list of stuff I’d recommend to myself if I woke up tomorrow with amnesia.
I also left out shows where I’ve not seen ‘most’ of the series. For example older shows like Star Trek TOS, or long running comedies like American Dad, The Cleveland Show, and so forth.
I wrote all of these by hand too, so this is by no means an attempt to blitz an easy word count, it has taken much longer than most updates do!

It bothers me slightly that I apparently don’t watch anything beginning with C, K N, Q, Y and Z.
I noted whilst making this that I’ve only seen some episodes of these shows but not all of them:
The Sopranos (I heard how it ended so never watched it)
Life on Mars (I also heard how this ended so never watched it)
Star Trek TOS
Star Trek DS9
The Cleveland Show
Some I have seen, but don’t care for:
24 (Irritating, and he never spends an episode on the toilet, it’s unrealistic damn it!)
Bobs Burgers (Not funny)
Criminal Minds (All)
Big Mouth (Eurgh)
The Man in the High Castle (Boring!)
The Big Bang Theory (It’s ok, but its basic as hell)
Any shockers that should be on my 100 list but aren’t? I imagine I’ve forgotten some massively obvious shows!
