Be careful when you tell someone they must do something; that demanding language often backfires. The premise of 1001 TV Shows You Must Watch Before You Die is a good one, chronicling many of the culturally significant programs that have appeared across the world. There are many obvious choices, from The A-Team to Zorro, but the omissions are sometimes more significant.

How anyone could include Keeping Up with the Kardashians rather than Family Ties is a mystery. Other shows missing include Growing Pains, Home Improvement, and One Day at a Time. It is nice to see some shows that I had forgotten, like Alien Nation, and I was happy to see that The Dukes of Hazzard made the cut despite the inane political correctness that is sweeping the earth these days.

Make no mistake, 1001 TV Shows You Must Watch Before You Die is a good book with solid write-ups, but it is dangerously misnamed.
