Oh my, I've never watched many TV shows, but I wanted to make sure these got in. I assume you'll have to have seen at least an entire season to nominate, second, third and vote, which means I won't be contributing very much beyond this.


Nominations:


Twin Peaks

Due South

Nova

Connections

Doctor Who

Roots



(darn, I think Wild Palms is too short)


Seconds:


E.R.


sigh, it's the only one I can 2nd.

Saved by the Bell has been nominated before The Dick Van Dyke Show?
