Best for me would have to be:

The Sopranos (although season 6 is booorrrrrring)

Followed by:

The Office (US)
Family Guy (first two seasons)
Band of Brothers
The Simpsons
X Files


Honorable mentions:

Miami Vice
Friends
Newsradio (The Phil Hartmen years)
Titus
Big Brother
Survivor
Saturday Night Live (1988-1992)
Three's Company
Andy Griffith Show
Mad TV (2003-)

I always pretty much hated Sienfeld; way too whiney and neurotic. His stand up is funny though.



Spiderman & His Amazing Friends and Thundarr were good too.

I didn't think I liked TV this much.

The West Wing, by a mile. It had the most brilliantly written characters ever as well as the most fantastic dialogues. I haven't seen a cast so amazing on TV. True, it lost its touch in Season 5 with Sorkin's departure, but it regained it in Seasons 6 and specially 7. A true classic!

Ok, I thought about it, and the only shows I ever have taken the time to follow in the time that I've been alive, I believe would be the best shows for me, these were:

Get Smart
Monk
24
House
I Love Lucy
The Bob Newhart Show
XPlay
Law and Order: SVU

and I have a huge amount of love for Looney Tunes until about the '50s.

and, I only list it last because I didn't really follow it that much, Fraiser.

Good to see a couple nods each for St. Elsewhere (80s) and West Wing (00s). I would also add Northern Exposure (90s).

I don't think I could narrow it down.

In Terms of comedy shows, I love Arrested Development, Scrubs, Seinfeld, Home Improvement.

Everybody Loves Raymond also had some really good episodes, though I started to really not enjoy the show towards the last couple of seasons, mainly the last.....Just didn't enjoy it. Maybe when the DVD prices for each series drop here, i'll go back, and maybe it'll change my opinion.

The First 4 seasons of 24 were fantastic - Its funny how Elisha left the show and it went downhil

The O.C. was alright too, yeah, its not everyones cup of tea...but there was some good episodes, save for most of the episodes of the final season, the Oliver saga, and some other little things that turned me off the show.

Scrubs and Seinfeld and Arrested Development remain the only three shows I can watch any episode any time, and no matter how many times, will still enjoy* it

(*=ok, if i watch it 10 times in a row its going to get boring, you know what I mean )

And lets not forget The Glass House, I guess if you don't live in Australia you'll have probably never heard of it....Oh How I Miss Ye'olde Glass House

It's a crime how underrated this show is. Darren McGavin was such a great actor. His conclusions at the end of each episode were just chilling. It was so ahead of its time and wouldn't look like any other show until Twin Peaks and The X-Files.

Exactly right !!

Although, the Night Stalker TV series was made because of the two original movies that were first aired back in 1971 "The Night Stalker" and in 1973 "The Night Strangler" ... which (if you haven't ever seen them) are worth getting. They are available on a double feature DVD presentation ... and I believe are even more heart-throbbing than the series was.
