Could you be more of a lawyer and stop confusing Wikipedia with the Wikimedia Commons?

Kidding. You still have your final question. Just need someone to step up to the line and shoot their shot.

I am going to base my answer off of this list:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_T ... 2%80%9320)

If you'd rather I use some other list, tell me.

That list looks incomplete. It's only seasons 1-20.

Rather than me trying to find the right lists, would you please send me a link or links to the lists you want me to look at, and then I'll give you an answer?
