Ok, so sue us…we’re writing a Top 10 list for 2009 all the way in the middle of the first month of 2010…it took us a long time to get our thoughts together; then we had to argue about the choices for about a month (approximate figure that is a lie).

After much wrangling we couldn’t even get the list down to one Top 10…there were too many great shows. So we agreed to disagree and give you 2 lists with 11 shows on each…its the most ridiculous thing that we’ve done in 2010. So we present you…
