Star Trek Discovery is #30. Not bad...

I just realized I'm not very updated on the TV series front, have hardly seen any of these shows. :oops:

Hmmmm - interesting. Some I would not have expected. Love how they put staring Jason Isaacs and he (probably) wont be in Season 2! And then for Dr, Who - they have staring Jodie Whitaker. OK I love Dr. Who and I think a female Doctor is going to be fantastic but geez - we've not seen a single with her - so how can you list it as one of the top 100. It's a provocative list!

I have a feeling lists like these are more about buzz snd less about quality....

The fact that Vanderpump Rules even made the list is evidence of that. I mean, 20- and 30-something -year-olds drinking themselves into oblivion does not make interesting television. Of course, I'm not a drinker, so that may color my opinion.

Yes, that too... everybody needs to work, apparently.

Well. They already have jobs (servers, bartenders, hostesses, etc.). I guess they need the extra $$ they're paid to be on the show. :roll:

If being actors is their dream, I'm not judging them for following that. I don't have to watch. :D

I stopped watching when, on multiple occasions, one guy gets so drunk, he doesn't remember having sex with other women . . . and . . . his fiancé married him anyway. Good role models. :shock:
