Top 10’s

In celebration of my 300th review I have compiled Top 10 lists for each of the mediums toward which I fling my brief opinions. Getting them down to only 10 was excruciating, and I considered adding limiting factors like time frames or genres, but I decided an “all-time” list would be more helpful in giving a perspective of where my views lie, and in what direction my reviews might sway. I am, however, including some “honorable mentions” as a cop-out. I did decide to limit the list to one item per property, (e.g. only 1 Star Wars film). Now, without further ado:

I didn’t plan for all of the books to be science fiction, but I’m not surprised they are. I didn’t expect as many animated shows to be in the TV list either, but they are all undeniably awesome. I suspect I’ll be “rediscovering” more things that should’ve been on this list as soon as I post it, especially movies and comics. So let me know what I’ve missed in the comments.
