Should we do it by series/seasons or by full shows? Either way I'm in.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I'd be in. Would only submit a top 25 or so but I like the idea of an overall top 100. Lots of good stuff to discover.

How do we feel about TV miniseries? Should we include them?

Miniseries that were deemed eligible for the movies list shouldn't be included. Miniseries that were deemed "too tv" probably should.

This would motivate me to actually finish the many series I've started. Also, maybe I'd finally watch Twin Peaks.

My biggest struggle will be ranking shows that are still currently producing new episodes. My biggest frustration is that this will line up with the end of Breaking Bad which will cause it to end up much higher on the list than deserved, I would imagine.
