I wonder why 24 and Lost are both on this list. Seriously, writers think it's great? It's something else for an individual to consider these shows. But for a collective group, one who actually make these shows happen by writing the story?

Don't get me wrong, I watch these shows...I am a sucker for these shows, in fact, there are days when I obsess about it. But I don't think 24 and Lost (lately especially) execute the best storylines. They have the best concept: good in paper, bad delivery. Some of the mini-plots haven't even been resolved...But then again, maybe that's why it's getting the recognition --- it's for all those complex story weaving and WTF moments.
