Top 10 Favorite TV Series

I love watching movies and my TV watching is very selective as I am very particular with the kind of shows I watch on the boob tube. I don't want to fill my head with nonsense, which means trash TV is out of the picture and shows that are creatively/artistically driven and very educational are high on my priorities. Cable TV series from HBO, AMC, CBS, Showtime, ABC, NBC and Fox have changed the paced and face of television. They are very enjoyable, well-made and the closest you can get to watching a full-length film. I will not be including any of my old time favorites from the pre-DVD and social networking years, so do not expect to see Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, Alex Mack, Dawson's Creek, and my fave The West Wing and Sex and the City (although it pains me not to include them here).
