Cult Of Personality

I don't need TV Guide, but sometimes you see an article on the cover and figure eh, why not? The cover this week had "25 Top Cult Shows Ever!" You know I had to grab that one, right! I especially like the ploy of multiple covers and the encouragement to collect all 4! How many people actually do that? Though I'll have to admit that if multiple covers were in that checkout line..umm..X-Files with Dana Scully versus Buffy...tough choice initially, but I gotta go with brains, red hair, and a gun versus valley-girl, ditzy blonde with a sword. Though a friend in Cleveland might disagree with me. Let that be a lesson to you women: brains are sexy!!! *sigh* why do they never believe me?

Regardless of my fantasy ramblings do you think it is a bad sign when 10 of the top 25 are shows that I truly loved and enjoyed, especially the top 4? Since you, my loyal and not so loyal readers, know me I'm pretty sure that you all know I march to my own drummer. Besides, cults flow downstream. I love my cult shows; I have cult of personality which allowed me to collect a few first years last year, and as long as I don't make them drink kool-aid then everyone is happy.

So what are your favorite shows? No Lawren, Sex And The City didn't make the top 25. The Simpsons did though at #6.

EDIT: Can't find a link to the top 25 so I'll just list them. Why? Because the fabulous Kelly P. asked. Even I've never heard of some of these shows.
