What are your top ten all time favorite TV series?


Wow  we have covered quite a number of shows old and new in this group.  Makes me wonder, after all of the years and all of the shows, which ones you have loved above all others.  



Feel free to say why or comment if you would like to..

    Growing up during the 60's as a kid I watched quite a lot of Syfi movies and TV shows. One that comes to mind is a series called "The Invaders".

      This show was really well made. I actually was able to purchase it on DVD from Amazon. I was able to relive my childhood all over again.

       Sure I could have easily pick Star Trek but this was better as it was happening here on Earth. Check it out.

  I had to look up 'EastSide...". Didn't recall that title. For what it's worth,  reviewers at IMDB gave it a really high rating. Sounds like show was ahead of it's time (meaning the general audience didn't appreciate it).
