Twin Peaks, the Simpsons, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer should be on the 3T list, IMO. If we're sticking to a top 10 list, I would probably drop Everybody Loves Raymond, Home Improvement and Will and Grace to make room for them.
Doctor Who with Rose Tyler in 2005 has a very playful quality. The Universe is a huge play ground. Since 2006, the themes have been becoming darker, I think some 2015 episodes are close to horror. Even visually, there is a difference. I wonder what will Doctor Who be like during the 1T, provided it survives.
