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 A"ll 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 compendium.
Sepinwall and Seitz's argument has ended. Now it's time for yours to begin!
