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..



No restrictions.. comedy, drama,  reality, whatever you like.

Wow!  That's a tall order!



I think my all time favorite TV show was "M.A.S.H."



"NYPD Blue"



The "Law & Order" series...all of them.  Recently, I have been focusing on "Criminal Intent."



"Boston Legal"



"Ally McBeal"



"ER"



"Sopranos"



"Star Trek"



British TV series...both drama and comedy.  I love "Poirot," "Midsomer Murders," "Jonathan Creek," "Doc Martin," "Monarch of the Glen," "Inspector Lewis," "Wire in the Blood," "Sherlock Holmes," (both) "MI-5,"  "Downton Abbey."



"Gunsmoke"



"Ponderosa"



"Big Valley"

Don't believe I can name 10, and for at least a decade I gave up watching tv:



Star Trek - Original



Mission Impossible



Let me add:



NCIS, all 3



CSI, more than the original one than the other two



Bones



Grey's Anatomy



Prison Break (although it was a limited run)



Covert Affairs



The Glades

All time favorites:



The Wire



The Sopranos



Six Feet Under



ER



Dexter



American Horror Story

Law and Order - SUV



Game of Thrones



Not necessarily in that order.

Forget a "top 10 list"; I'll just mention the series I liked well enough, that I'd watch reruns if they were on again now:




  • Sex and The City - I think I like best that it's light fare, and you can watch any 5 minutes or episode, without needing to see the whole thing for it to make sense.


  • The Sopranos


  • NYPD Blue


  • BBC/PBS Series - That alone might be more than 10!


    • Upstairs/Downstairs - Original & New


    • Downton Abbey


    • Sherlock Holmes (with Jeremy Brett)


    • Poirot




  • Made for TV Movies


    • Pride & Prejudice (1995 w/Colin Firth & 2005 w/Keira Knightly)


    • Thorn Birds




  • Reality Shows


    • Project Runway


    • America's Next Top Model


    • Top Chef
