The Decade’s Best

December 21, 2009

I’m not a huge fan of “Best Of” lists, but that doesn’t stop me from compiling my own. Below are my picks for the best TV shows and movies of the 00’s. I wanted to limit it to a Top Ten and that was fairly easy for me to do with TV shows, but not so easy with movies. It was also difficult for me to rank the movies since the genres are so different, so those are in alphabetical order.

Comments, thoughts and opinions are always welcome.
