Top 10 TV Shows Blogfest

Nebular's Top 10 TV Shows

My dear friend, Alex J. Cavanaugh, is hosting yet another cool blogfest, and I'm excited to participate in it. After the very successful The Movie Dirt Dozen Blogfest, it's time for another great list, with "entertainment" topic. It's the Top 10 TV Shows Blogfest! My list contains 5 of my favorite reality shows and 5 of my favorite TV series + a bonus entry. Enjoy!


1. The X Factor UK

Hands down, THE BEST singing competition in the entire world!
Direction, editing, sound - everything is pitch-perfect!
And let's not forget, that my girl, Cheryl Cole is one of the judges.


2. The Amazing Race

Super-entertaining and amazing, indeed!


3. American Idol

Great show! Almost on par with its UK's equivalent,
and still the better of two, "The X Factor"!


4. So You Think You Can Dance

Forget "Dancing with the Stars".
"So You Think You Can Dance" is the real deal!


5. Britain's Got Talent

Hilarious and laugh-out-loud funny!


6. The X Files

An enormously entertaining sci-fi/mystery/horror TV series.
An absolute cult show!


7. Twin Peaks

A timeless classic! David Lynch at his best.


8. The Twilight Zone

"The Twilight Zone"! Do I need to say more?


9. Friends

Without a doubt, the funniest TV show on this planet!


10. Ugly Betty

Fresh, quirky, energetic and ultra hilarious!


(bonus) 11. Tales from the Crypt

Extremely funny and creepy as hell!

The Runner Ups:

Reality Shows: Design Star, Project Runway, The X Factor Australia, Fear Factor, Next Top Model Series.

TV Series: The Sex and the City, House M.D., Nip/Tuck, Married with Children, Las Vegas.

X-Files - excellent choice! I confess I watch Idol every year, too. Good on you to go for a bonus show - so did I!
Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

Gregg said...

Very interesting list. I forgot about Married with Children.

Me also a reality show freak, I love watching Amazing race, Survivor, fear factor, the apprentice, extreme makeover, and quite enjoying such talent shows as Idol and X-factor too.
Series however is limited, I remember one series that made me fall in love with horror genre back in my younger days which is "Friday the 13th: the series", it has nothing to do with Jason Voorhees though only similar title.

Budd said...

oh, tells from the crypt. Awesome.

Summer Ross said...

WOOT! Tales from the Crypt made list too. !

Jennie Bailey said...

It's amazing to me how many of us included X-Files on our list no matter how varied the lists! Tales from the Crypt was so creepy cool as well! I love that you did Runner Ups. Wish I had thought to do that!!

iZombie said...

tales from the crypt... right on!
such great choices.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful list I knew most of them, a couple were even on my list. Loved the presentation.


aspiring_x said...

sounds like your a reality show fan! :)

arlee bird said...

Twin Peaks and Twilght Zone-- yes!!!!!!

Tossing It Out

Nebular said...

Alex, you're "The X Files" fan as well? That's awesome! It's probably my most favorite TV series. I'm always glad to participate in your great blogfests, Alex ;)

Lynda Young said...

Twilight Zone would have gone onto my list if I had remembered it :)
Great list
W.I.P. It: A Writer's Journey

Nebular said...

Gregg, glad you liked my list. "Married with Children" almost made the top 10 - I love its cleverness and sarcastic humor!

Nebular said...

Jaccsy, I didn't know you're a reality show freak. That makes me like you even more! :) I've been watching X-Factor and Idol for over 4 years. I've seen a couple of seasons of Survivor, but not a huge fan. The Amazing Race however is a remarkable reality show. Love the Asian version as well ;)
I didn't know "Friday the 13th: the series" even existed! Friday the 13th always brings horror to mind, even without Jason Voorhees being a part of it.

Nebular said...

Budd, Tales from the Crypt should be a part of every horror junkie top 10 TV shows list ;) Awesome, indeed!

Angela M. said...

I'm not much for reality shows unless it involves cooking (but Project Runway is awesome). But man, I love your pics for tv series! Tales from the Crypt was a happy surprise. I think the show is why I love B-movies so much (well, along with Evil Dead). One of my all-time favorite Tales was the full-movie length DEMON KNIGHT with Billy Zane, Jada Pinkett Smith, and William Sadler. Course, it doesn't qualify as a tv show :)

Nebular said...

Summer Ross, yes, it made it, because it deserved it ;)

Nebular said...

Jenny, I noticed that as well. Obviously, there are many "X-Files" fans among us, which is great! "Tales from the Crypt" was my fav TV show, when I was little. I've seen all the episodes, with no exceptions :) Am I the only one who did runner ups? :) :P

Nebular said...

iZombie, "Tales from the Crypt" ended up as my most 'talk about' pick. :) It rules!

Nebular said...

Yvonne, I saw your list yesterday, but I was pushed for time, so I wasn't able to comment. It seems we have pretty similar taste in TV Shows ;)

Nebular said...

aspiring_x, I am definitely a huge Reality show junkie. :)

Nebular said...

Lee, yes, I love those two! ;) Now I have the ambition to become your 400th follower ;)

Nebular said...

Lyn, "Twilight Zone" is a classic and one of the best TV series ever shown on TV. I'm glad I brought back a good 'twilight' memories to you. :)

Nebular said...

Angela, I somewhat prefer reality shows rather than TV series. Reality TV had always been so much more entertaining for me.

"Tales from the Crypt" was a SPECIAL bonus entry ;)

I've seen Demon Knight but I have to admit, I barely remember it :P

Ellie said...

Project Runway! I forgot all about that one! Awesome list.

Top Ten TV Blogfest

Kelley said...

These are all excellent picks! The shows that i have seen off this list i loved!

Nebular said...

Ellie, Project Runway is all about creativity and imagination, and that's why I love it.

Nebular said...

Kelley, glad you liked my list! :) Thanks for the comment.
