TV Guide just release their list of the top 30 Cult TV shows of all time. Of the 30, I counted the number of shows for which I’d seen at least 5 episodes: 11. I guess that is why they are cult favorites and not hugely successful favorites.
- 8 of the shows started in the 1960s or earlier (a surprise to me.)
- I’d never even heard of 4 of them.
- Not a single one on the list began its run during the years between 1975 and 1986, indicating an apparent lull in creativity.
