  • Awesome Music: All of Marquee Moon, of course. Adventure isn't too shabby either. The interplay between Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd is impressive, and both albums feature Epic Riff after Epic Riff. For that matter, if you can get past the subpar sound quality, their live album The Blow-Up is also spectacular; the album Live at the Old Waldorf has better sound quality but not quite as solid a setlist (it features several of the same songs as The Blow-Up, but is missing a few). Both are essential, in any case - fans won't have a fully accurate picture of Television's sound without them.
  • First Installment Wins: While all three of the band's albums are highly acclaimed, Marquee Moon is the best known and most influential of them.
