    "I think this is a good solution. It is not the best because it only has one season and not very popular but it has good reviews."

    "Twilight Zone is a very popular sci-fi show and while I'd say it's one of the most beloved and best known, I wouldn't call it one of the best sci-fi shows ever. Thinking of the best of that genre, I can put this squarely behind too many to include it in that list."
