44) VERONICA MARS (2004-08)

I don't care what anybody says, this was a smart, well written show that I think the average viewer just couldn't appreciate. But the fact remains that this show is the kind of film noir inspired mystery that's been missing from TV for years. It also introduced the adorable Kristen Bell, one the best actresses of her generation. I think people expected a dumb teen soap and instead got a character driven mystery.

45) Penn & Teller: Bulls**t! (2003-2010)

Penn & Teller: Bulls**t! was hosted by professional magicians/comedians Penn & Teller. It generally either debated a political topic or aimed to debunk pseudoscientific ideas, paranormal beliefs, and popular fads and misconceptions, often from a libertarian point of view, the political philosophy espoused by both Penn and Teller. The show criticized proponents of what they perceive as nonsense and dishonesty, often citing ulterior political or financial motives. The stated aim of the show was to apply "critical thinking" to misconceptions and other bulls**t. As indicated by the show's title, the program adhered to Penn & Teller's characteristically blunt, aggressive presentation. The show was nominated for 11 Emmy Awards.

Ozzymandias speaks: 46) Have Gun Will Travel (1957 - 1963) If Matt Dillon was the Phillip Marlow of the Old West, Paladin was the first James Bond of the Old West. Based on the Ian Fleming novel description of Bond, Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow created a Western hero that was different than other TV Western heroes of the day. Paladin was dressed in all black while working and wore a tux at his home in the San Fransisco Hotel Carlton. He was a West Point grad who quoted Shakespear, Socrates, Keates and Shelley. He carried business cards and charged a fee for his services. The business cards and his holster both had a chess knight on them. He saved Oscar Wilde's life, hunted a sasquatch in Colorado, man-eating tigers in India and fought ninjas. The opening music was by Bernard Hermann and the closing theme was by country singer Johnny Western.

47) Daria (1997-2002)

Daria is an American animated television series produced by Paramount Television, and created by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn for MTV. The series focuses on Daria Morgendorffer, a smart, acerbic, and somewhat misanthropic teenage girl who observes the world around her. The show is set in the fictional suburban American town of Lawndale and is a satire of high school life, and full of allusions to and criticisms of popular culture and social classes.

Daria is a spin-off of Mike Judge's animated Beavis and Butt-head series, in which Daria appeared as a recurring character.

48) Chappelle's Show (2003-2006)

Chappelle's Show is an American sketch comedy television series created by comedian Dave Chappelle and Neal Brennan, with Chappelle hosting the show as well as starring in various skits. Chappelle, Brennan and Michele Armour were the show's executive producers. The series premiered on January 22, 2003 on the American cable television network Comedy Central. The show ran for two complete seasons and a third, truncated season (dubbed "The Lost Episodes").


49) Futurama (1999-2003, 2008 - present)

Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series follows the adventures of a late 20th-century New York City pizza delivery boy, Philip J. Fry, who, after being unwittingly cryogenically frozen for one thousand years, finds employment at Planet Express, an interplanetary delivery company in the retro-futuristic 31st century. The series was envisioned by Groening in the late 1990s while working on The Simpsons, later bringing Cohen aboard to develop storylines and characters to pitch the show to Fox.

51) Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994): This follow-up series had some pretty big shoes to fill and despite inevitable comparisons with the original, this series forged an identity all its own with thoughtful science fiction stories that focused as much on the importance of communication and understanding, of when to act and when to take a chance and take the time to reason things out. The adventures of Picard, Riker, Worf, Troi, Data, LaForge and the rest of the crew took us into new areas not really explored before in Star Trek as characters were arguably more fully fleshed out and developed and stories features sometimes characters who weren't outright black or white, good and evil but more shades of gray. As the years have went on, I for one have come to appreciate this series more and more with certain episodes being as good as anything ever put on television.

52 Lost In Space (1965-1968): Mid-1960s space adventure series from adventure producer Irwin Allen, this series felt like a mix of adventurous space exploration with the 50s style TV family. Some episodes, especially the early ones were very good dealing with things such as loyalty, prejudice, responsibility, social behaviour and more. There were also a lot of interesting adventurous science fiction stories early on (and with guest stars the likes of Warren Oates, Michael Rennie, Robby the Robot. Kurt Russell, Michael Ansara, Sherry Jackson). As the series progressed, things got sillier and sillier yet the show maintained a certain fun charm and innocence and who couldn't help but love the loyal B9 Robot and his interactions with the man who would become the arguable anti-hero of the show- Dr. Zachary Smith played by Jonathan Harris. Bill Mumy too would prove very good in the role of the heroic young Will Robinson while Guy Williams played his dad John also the mission's commander, June Lockhart his mom Maureen, Marta Kristen his sister Judy and Angela Cartwright as his sister Penny. Mark Goddard played John's right hand man Major Don West. The show was about family as much as anything else while Smith and the Robot provided much of the comedy relief as well as often initiating a lot of the adventure.

56. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964-1968): This classic 1960s American spy series focused on the adventurous exploits of leads Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum), a pair of spies one Russian and the other American who worked for an international espionage and law-enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement) as they battle forces of evil in the world out to disrupt peace, particulary the forces of THRUSH who are out for world domination under their command. Similar in some ways to James Bond, the show featured lots of gadgets, girls, gunfights and lots of charm and wit along with far flung globe-hopping adventures.

59. The Invaders (1967-1968): This series was a Quinn Martin production created by Larry Cohen that focuses on the struggle of an architect named David Vincent (Roy Thinnes) who stumbles across a secret alien invasion and inflitration already well underway. Soon he finds himself constantly on the move trying to stay one step ahead and foil plans of the aliens also while working to try and convince the skeptical of the real threat the aliens pose. The series was like something of a cross between the Fugitive and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Later shows such as UFO, the X-Files and First Wave certainly owe this series a heck of a lot. Dominic Frontiere provided the show's eerie score.
