Crop And Save
Only stipulation is one movie is to represent a franchise (so 'Terminator,' 'Back to the Future' each only get one entry--franchise film rankings in descriptions).
While everyone will have his/her own order, additions, and subtractions, these are the franchises that have withstood the test of time. Some of them are newer, some much older, all separate me from reality in convincing fashion.
I've tried picking my favorite incarnation for some of these entries, followed by rankings of movies, shows, etc., within that franchise.
The pretentious stuff filed under "graphic novels" are not considered.

A Narrative Time Machine
After 14 episodes of the first season, I am now comfortable in saying: Gortimer is smartly written, well acted, and solidly produced.
It transports one to a simpler, happier time, while still meaningful and relevant to the younger viewers. Each episode is a stand-alone tale that evokes the mysteries of childhood and--in what seems a lost art--manages to teach poignant and valuable lessons. Some episodes are more powerful and magical than others, but each one is satisfying in its own right.
This show is one-part "Eerie, Indiana," one-part Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and one-part its own wondrous thing.
