Before joining the Huffington Post as TV critic, Mo Ryan was the television critic for the Chicago Tribune. She serves on the board of the Peabody Awards and has served on the AFI Top 10 TV Shows of the Year committee three times. Favorite shows ever: It's tie among Battlestar Galactica and Deadwood and Friday Night Lights and Mad Men and Lost and 28 other shows she's going to remember in a minute. She is probably watching Doctor Who right now.
