Despite my love of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, I am a TV addict.  I binge, gorge, and emerge 2 days later like a sewer rat.  My proudest/most embarrassing talent is being able to say, “Hey, that’s that guy from that one episode of Criminal Minds.”  #WalkingIMDB.  We are living in the Golden Age of Television, so I can’t be too embarrassed.

Rolling Stone came out with an article listing the top 100 TV Shows of all time.  Similar to the Top 250 Movies, this challenge is absolutely within my comfort zone, but is still something I want to accomplish.

Here are the rules: I need to have seen at least 3 episodes and can name principal characters to count as having “watched” the show.

The Top 100 TV Shows, as listed by some guy at Rolling Stone:
1. The Sopranos
