My Favorite TV Shows (Of All Time).by MizzySaz | created - 12 Apr 2012 | updated - 28 Nov 2014 | Public
These are my personal favorites, which means they may not necessarily be considered good in others' opinion. Therefore, please, do not leave comments such as: "WTF? This and this is no good!" You do not have to agree with my taste, as it might be a little peculiar, but you also do not need to be rude about it. To each their own. No animated series included. In no particular order.
