If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Top ten TV shows

"The key to sitcom success is miserable people. If you see a happy couple, it's just gone, like when Sam and Diane got together on Cheers."
Matthew Perry

Today I'm forgoing the Wit Win wing it for a bloghop/blogfest. I will post winners and a new one next Monday. Alex has graciously hosted the Top ten TV Shows blogfest/hop for us. Please have a look at all the others participating in this, I'm sure you will find some amusement along the way!


My top ten: Okay but I'm not all sitcom, I'm a touch of everything. But I'll keep it as close to TV programs/sitcom as I can :)



10) Thundercats- I know its a cartoon, but I'm that kinda girl. I always loved the sword because it amazed me to be able to do something so fantastic in a cartoon.



9) Tales from the crypt- LOL yeah I'm one of those too. actually when I was younger I would honestly be better behaved in school if mom allowed me to stay up and watch these horror flicks, even though they gave me nightmares. I was 9 I think when I first started watching them and was fascinated by horror ever since. And now my daughter at 9 is very much into scary tales. lol



8) Bewitched- I always wanted to watch the head into it, when I was younger I didn't understand the show itself, but I loved the cat turning into a person.


7) Rescue Rangers- I know again with the cartoons, but I'm telling you I was all over the spectrum

6)Home Improvement- actually I used to watch this one because my dad watched it and when he took over the TV you weren't allowed to change the channel.

5) Charmed- I really enjoyed witches...

4)Medium- The idea of ghosts always freaked me out, and the fact that this lady spoke to them was brilliant

3) Heroes- I watched the first two seasons of this regularly Then it got all dumb and I quit watching

2) House- I love the arrogant doctor what can I say?


1)Its a tie for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and True Blood. See I own all 7 seasons of Buffy...and they rock. And I've watched every True Blood episode so far and they rock too...I guess I have a thing for Fangs.

 
What is your number one?

I have plenty of cartoons on my spot of the blog hop too. I also have Buffy and Friends listed. I think it's good to have a diverse range of tastes from which to choose from on any given day.

M. said...

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Christina Lee said...

Thumbs up to Buffy and Bewitched!

Stephen Tremp said...

I have Heroes on my Honorable Mention. Great show that never really recovered from the writers strike. Too bad. It gave me much inspiration for my book.

I LOVED Rescue Rangers! Now I must go and find some videos on YouTube.

SEINFELD is #1; then LOST. Although I loved BEWITCHED too, along with I DREAM OF JEANNIE, back in the day.

Karen Peterson said...

Rescue Rangers! I used to watch that all the time.

Good list! I'm not a fan of House, but I like all the others.

Mason Canyon said...

Home Improvement (especially the first couple of seasons) was great and I also enjoyed Charmed and Bewitched.

Buffy, House, and Bewitched; all uniquely different, but equally brilliant.

The Mathew Perry quote is interesting and I think it draws a parallel with every short story/novel being about conflict and resolution. When the conflict is resolved the story is finished!

Budd said...

Thunder cats, rescue rangers, buffy. All awesome. there are 8 seasons of buffy, but #8 is a comic and I believe they are doing #9 now.

Candyland said...

Oooohhh Tales from the crypt kept me up many nights!!!

Amanda Sablan said...

Nice choices, especially True Blood. How 'bout that season finale? ;]

Jen said...

You're the first one I saw that said Medium! I love you for life!!! That show is amazing and I look forward to a new season of it!! The other's were great but I was in absolute shock that no one else listed Medium (as of yet!)

AlexOngNYC said...

Your choice of Thundercats just reminded me on how influential Transformers and Voltron were for me!

Jennie Bailey said...

I watched Home Improvement because of my dad as well! Imagine his absolute excitement when I got hired on the show! He was always flying in "for a quick visit". I think I saw more of him that year than I ever had in my life.

GREAT list, Summer! If I ever get an unexplained illness, I want House working on my case!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Oh I loved Thundercats. My neighbour had the Lion-O sword that lit up. Thundercats Ho!

ali said...

Charmed! House! Medium! Love :)

Lynda Young said...

Thundercats were cool!! I loved them :)

The Words Crafter said...

Hart Johnson said...

Jemi Fraser said...

Fabulous list! I really need to pick up the Buffy series - I think I'd love it! My all-time fave is Firefly :)

Erin Kane Spock said...

Thundercats HO!
I forgot about Charmed. I would add Charmed as my number 11. I have yet to see True Blood.
Thanks for sharing.

Hannah Kincade said...

I loooove that Thundercats is on your list! LOL!

aspiring_x said...

Kelly said...

Great, eclectic list.
My number one is True Blood, too. I am obsessed with it!

arlee bird said...

Bewitched is on my list. I used to watch Home Improvement quite often in syndication. I haven't seen any of you other picks.

Kelly Dexter said...

Great list! Kudos for both Buffy and True Blood.

Angela M. said...

Your list is crazy-good! I love the eclectic mix you threw in, and of course, it doesn't hurt you ranked my fav at number one (and I love Buffy, so it doesn't matter they're tied). I used to watch Rescue Rangers before work every day. I even called in sick one day so I could just veg and watch it. I never said I wasn't weird :)

J.C. Martin said...

Ah, "Rescue Rangers"! Who won't love cute chipmunks in tiny airplanes? I would add "Duck Tales" to my list!

P.S.: Drop by my site for a blog award!

The Golden Eagle said...

Nothing wrong with toons! :D
