10/10 Perfect Scores-Will be Updated

by whifferrack | created - 23 Apr 2012 | updated - 09 May 2015 | Public

I'm a picky guy. I don't hand out 10s left and right-they have to be truly perfect. Here's a list (will be updated as I watch stuff) of my perfect scores. As of 10/22/12, 60/2130 (2.82%) of my ratings are perfect scores. Most of these are TV show episodes and are post-2000 shows, so yes on this list there is no Friends, Seinfeld, Frasier, ER, etc.

And sorry, but I haven't watched the Sopranos yet, so that's why it isn't on here..I'm getting there, though. P.s. if anyone feels like something was left out, please comment. i love finding new shows/eps.

Leaderboard: Breaking Bad-8 (Yes, it deserves this many) The Wire-5 Community-4 House, M.D.-3 Christopher Nolan movies-3 Arrested Development-3 Spartacus-2 Game of Thrones-2 Six Feet Under-2 Mad Men-2 Lost-2 Dexter-2 Louie-2 Curb Your Enthusiasm-2 Sons of Anarchy-2 Everything else (The Office, Friday Night Lights, The Shield, The Walking Dead, Chuck, Fringe, Scrubs, The Office UK, 24, The Departed, Awake, Homeland, Justified, The Newsroom, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, The Departed, Sherlock) -1
