Monday Memeage: Ten Top-Five Television Lists

Picked up from Fenchurche:

Note: These aren't so much "favorites" as they are "shows my Monday-morning-fog-wrapped-brain is capable of remembering."

What? No, No, I Don't Watch That...: 5 Guilty Pleasure TV Shows

1. Crowned--What? There's nothing else on!
2. Moment of Truth--see above, and also, my remote was broken and I was knitting and the cat was on my lap.
3. Big Brother. This used to not be a guilty pleasure. Blame the Donatos that I can't hold my head up about still caring about this show.
4. Any celebrity "reality" show on VH-1.
5. America's Next Top Model--also not really a "guilty pleasure," but the loopier and more desperate Tyra gets, the harder it is not to be embarrassed that I watch this show. Add to that, Saliesha. Bleah.

Wow: 5 TV Moments You Still Remember (And Probably Won't Forget)

1. Lois Lane's de-glasses-ing of Clark Kent, right after he proposed to her - Lois & Clark
2. Dave & Maddie's furniture-breaking roll on the floor - Moonlighting
3. Nine kissing Rose to absorb her Tardis energy, and then getting killed by it - Doctor Who
4. The Post-Modern Prometheus dancing at a Cher concert - The X-Files
5. Claire waking up on the autopsy table with her chest flayed open - Heroes

I left out the entire Whedonverse because there's just too much to narrow it down. "Can we rest?" House-demolition sex. End-of-musical kissing. Sending Angel to hell. Wesley shooting his dad. The introduction of Illyria. Willow flaying Warren. Angel locking the lawyers in with Darla and Dru. Mal kicking the hench-guy into the jet engine. "Big Damn Heroes, Sir!" I could go on. And on and on and on.

That's What She Said: 5 Quotes That Still Resonate

Again, I'm having to work really hard to think of quotes that don't come from the Whedonverse, and within said 'verse, there are too many to pick from. That said:
