Over the years I have devoted a lot of my time to television shows. Though I no longer watch 30 shows a week (there was a moment in time where that was the number!), I still spend quite a lot of time on them but I have so far only scratched the surface. Here is a list of great television shows I still need to watch which, I must admit, is simply a fraction of a much larger list I’m too afraid to share.
