There aren't many TV shows that I despise, so for me there isn't a great deal to do in this thread besides nod and pat backs. I will say that Sex and the City and Friends are annoying and bland, respectively. I have no use for either of them. Otherwise, I mean, yeah, I'm not going to bitch much. I really have no idea what I'm talking about anyway; I've only seen a small percentage of the shows that have been mentioned so far.

Here's a top 10, such as it is, with a strong emphasis on childhood favorites:

1. The Simpsons
2. Breaking Bad
3. House, MD
4. Seinfeld
5. Twin Peaks
6. South Park
7. Monk
8. Mad Men
9. Dexter's Laboratory
10. Rocko's Modern Life

Monk-mania? A list with Extras but not The Office? Enjoying the unpredictability so far.

Also, if you're even thinking about doing a list, don't fret about the actual positions. Since it's only a one point difference for each rank, it likely won't matter if you rank a series a few spots "wrong" as our overall consensus list will likely have much bigger gaps between shows than a few measly points.

  1. Get Smart
  2. Monk
  3. Boston Legal
  4. Quantum Leap
  5. Twin Peaks
  6. 24
  7. House
  8. Frasier
  9. Law and Order SVU
  10. Futurama
  11. Scrubs
  12. X-Files
  13. Mystery Science Theater 3000
  14. Monty Python's Flying Circus
  15. Married with Children
  16. NYPD Blue
  17. Rocko's Modern LIfe
  18. Courage the Cowardly Dog
  19. How I Met Your Mother
  20. Simpsons
I think that's about right.

Of course, there are always qualifications. The first 2.5 seasons of Monk were just that damn good, otherwise, after that, I kind of hate the show. 24 is another one that I just love the first few seasons that much, even though the rest is not so good. HIMYM is as low as it is because I've only seen the first 2.5 seasons, but I'm sure it will continue to rise.


Had to leave a few things off that I love, but pretty solid feelings about the above.

I'm having trouble ranking dramas and sitcoms in the same list. I feel like it's apples and oranges. Anyone else feel this way?

i can maybe name 10 TV shows ...


1. The Simpsons
2. Breaking Bad
3. The Sopranos
4. The Wire
5. Mad Men
6. Roseanne (is probably the most honest show ever)
7. NYPD Blue
8. The Cosby Show
9. South Park
10. 6 Feet Under


i admit that i haven't seen Arrested Development, but i will on Netflix.

i also just realized that no one has mentioned the most politically insightful show of our time, and a major influence on NLOTH: Battlestar Galactica.

I almost put the British Office on the list, but as much as I liked it, I did like Extras more overall. I cringed less and laughed more.

Ooooh, Extras was brilliant. Especially the Kate Winslet episode.
