I have to interject here. If you are writing this for your blog, then shouldn't you have watched the shows yourself? And thus wouldn't you know which are the best ones?
I find your question to be two-parted: First of all, the best shows on television are not necessarily the most Christian or Catholic. That doesn't mean that they are bad or shouldn't be watched. I just would not base my list of best shows on if they are Christian or not.
Second, and this is vice versa, the most Christian shows are usually not the best. If you look back in history, I would never rank 7th Heaven, Blue Bloods or any of the other family friendly shows as the best, mostly because I find the writing subpar and predictable and the acting average at best.
With that said, I run a blog, TV for Catholics, that is dedicated to secular TV from a Catholic's perspective (including have already written a 2011 Year in Review, as well as comments on the shows nominated for the Emmy for Best Drama, and I would be happy to collaborate with you on this project should you need it. I have reviews posted of the new 2012 shows with an emphasis on their family and moral potential.
Magister102, right on all points! :) I'm not writing it as a personal opinion piece, what I think is the best show, but more a piece that can highlight shows that are valuable for the Catholic/Christian eye. The shows don't have to be spewing Bible verses or condemning every sin, but something that is 'healthy' (or, perhaps in the case these days, 'NOT AS UNhealthy" for the person who wishes to be selective in their TV viewing. I personally don't watch too much TV, so I wanted to get a feel of what you other people thought, and then go check out those shows.
I saw your blog and I like it! Keep up the good work! If you don't mind, I would like to look at a collaboration some time in future! Thanks for the input!
