I'm sure I'm going to think of more shows after I post this....

Bold the shows you've watched at least three complete episodes of, italicize a show if you're certain you've seen every episode of it, strike through if you've never even heard of it, asterisk if you have some particular fondness for it. (Doesn't say what to do if you know of the show but have never watched it, but oh well.)

You can add shows to the list, but keep them in alphabetical order.
