The documentary “New York Street Games” snagged a spot for PBS in the top 10 TV shows of 2010 as complied by New York Daily News critic David Hinckley. “This fairly modest production is a documentary shown on local PBS stations, which confirms again the value of PBS,” he writes. “It’s an unpretentious, straightforward and thoroughly charming look at the games New York kids used to play on New York streets —presented not as nostalgia, but a vivid, riveting snapshot of growing up in the melting pot that was early and mid-20th-century New York.” Other shows on the list include HBO’s miniseries “Boardwalk Empire”; AMC’s Mad Men series and TBS’s late-night Conan O’Brien.
