Never really thought of Band of Brothers and Roots as a TV series. They're both limited series telling a specific story. Jeopardy? Seriously? All those cop shows they listed would not have been possible without Homicide: Life on the Streets. And surely they could have found room for St. Elsewhere.

Yeah, I have a lot of disagreements with that list of TV shows but I suspect the reason they make those lists is to generate traffic from arguments.
Besides, who has time for TV when it takes 3 days just to vacuum your 8 bedroom "home".
