Is The Wire better than Breaking Bad? Is
Cheers better than Seinfeld? What's the best
high school show ever made? Why did Moonlighting
really fall apart? Was the Arrested Development
Netflix season brilliant or terrible?
For twenty years-since they
shared a TV column at Tony Soprano's hometown
newspaper-critics Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz have
been debating these questions and many more, but it all
ultimately boils down to this:
What's the greatest TV show ever?
That debate reaches an epic
conclusion in TV (THE BOOK). Sepinwall and Seitz have
identified and ranked the 100 greatest scripted shows in
American TV history. Using a complex, obsessively all-
encompassing scoring system, they've created a Pantheon of
top TV shows, each accompanied by essays delving into what
made these shows great. From vintage classics like The
Twilight Zone and I Love Lucy to modern
masterpieces like Mad Men and Friday Night
Lights, from huge hits like All in the Family and
ER to short-lived favorites like Firefly
and Freaks and Geeks, TV (THE BOOK) will bring the
triumphs of the small screen together in one amazing
Sepinwall and Seitz's argument has
ended. Now it's time for yours to begin!
