The WGA's 101 Best-Written TV Shows Ever

The Writer's Guild of America has announced its official list of the 101 best-written television programs of all time. The full list is available here. Obviously as the WGA is an American organisation they focus on American TV shows, but as a big science fiction fan I was keen to see how my favourite genre fared on their list. Here are the SF shows that made it:
  • The Twilight Zone (#3)
  • The X Files (#26)
  • Lost (#27)
  • Star Trek (#33)
  • Twin Peaks (#35)
  • Battlestar Galactica (#38)
  • Game of Thrones (#40)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer (#49)
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation (#79)
  • The Prisoner (#90)
 I'd quibble over where those show placed in relation to each other (Lost better than Star Trek, Game of Thrones and The Prisoner? Hardly.) but it's generally speaking a list I can get behind.
