A detour through my top 100 Television shows and notes on my blog changes

A couple of notes for my diligent readers: I am combining my old movie blog with this blog. Currently it is the only way to make it all work for me, streamlines my blogging. So, here is the first blog about movies/tv/directors from the Symphonic Cinema blog

A detour through my top 100 Television shows ( in no particular order)

** Editor's note. Last week I realized how wrong, very wrong I was for leaving out one of my all-time favorite shows - Mad About You. I love the show's first couple of seasons. Two of my favorite episodes are - the one with all the turkeys and the one with John Astin.
