Det amerikanske manusforfatterlaget (Writers Guild of America) har nå kåret de 101 best skrevne tv-seriene. Topp #10 er ganske snadder med Sopranos foran Seinfeld, The Twilight Zone, All in the Family, M*A*S*H*, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Mad Men, Cheers, The Wire og The West Wing.

«If character is destiny, then character has also long been the backbone of great TV writing. The list of the WGA’s 101 Best Written TV Series is a testament to this, as true for a series on which the main character is ostensibly a version of the star (The Cosby Show, to give but one example) as a show featuring a Vulcan aboard an exploratory space ship or a serial killer flitting across both sides of the thin blue line.
Close to half of the 101 Best Written TV Series aired within the last decade. Not coincidentally, this was a period that coincided with a sharp growth in original programming on both basic and pay cable television when writers were given more latitude to explore the moral complexities of the worlds they created.»
