    Another fan of Deadwood here. It has a theatrical feel to it that I enjoy. Some interesting charcters and watching the town developing was good.

    My books, contests, reviews and author interviews on my blog

    At the end of season 2, it's very good but it's definitely not "up there".

    Get bent.

    Very comedy-heavy, but oh well:

    The Simpsons - For all the talk of how rubbish it is now there's no getting past the fact that this was absolutely untouchable for ages. A true TV classic, and the best TV comedy ever IMO. The amount of solid gold episodes and moments in it is unreal. There's no internet rabbit hole quite like Simpsons clips on YouTube.

    Seinfeld - Another marvellous comedy. It's a real "you either get it or you don't" show, but if you get it you get it. George Costanza is probably the best character in any sitcom.

    Arrested Development - AD took things to the next level, IMO. Self-referencing (who knew the line "I've made a huge mistake" could be so funny?), jokes it was impossible to get the first time you watched it (!), and it always reveals more when you watch it again. The perfect DVD boxset show. I think this is the TV show I've watched the most. It goes through a brief slump in season three but quickly gets back on the ball. I can't wait for the new series (not sure how it'll translate to film).

    Mystery Science Theater 3000 - I'm not sure if this should really be in here, but it was on TV after all. Some very funny people sit and take the piss out of bad movies. That's all there is to it. Even if it's next to impossible to pick up on more than a fraction of the obscure pop-culture references they drop, there's more than enough to keep you belly laughing for 90-odd minutes.

    Mad Men - Stylish, deep and thoughtful, this is more like a book than a TV show. Really, anyone who doesn't think TV is a medium for complex and intelligent stories should be made to watch it. Also responsible for this, one of the best scenes I can think of.

    Close calls: Twin Peaks (that second season slump stopped it getting in), Breaking Bad (I've only seen the first three seasons, but if it continues the way it has been it's a shoo-in), Mr. Show (again, only because I haven't seen enough of it yet), Frasier (really close. Again, it has a bad slump later on but didn't quite scale the heights of something like The Simpsons to make up for it).

    Bit surprised by the numerous mentions of Game of Thrones, thought it was good (second series less so), but not great. Anyway:

    Deadwood
    Mad Men
    The Wire
    The Shield
    Friday Night Lights.
    Haven't seen Breaking Bad yet.

    @EyeLand Agree , I also thought the same about Rome , such a shame that the set was damaged by fire as they had plans to film another few series .

    Never understood the love for Deadwood.

    I liked how you saw the town develop, I liked Al Swearengen, and I liked pretending that Timothy Elephant was a distant relative of his character in Justified; I just found it hard to care about pretty much anything else that was going on. And why couldn't they just talk normal?
    I absolutely loved it. It was the closest any film or drama had come to how it was like back then, or how I imagined it. It's refreshing the lack of out right good and bad characters, and the quagmire of unpleasant, unethical shit. Just seemed real.

    Passing those gallstones was horrible though.
    Loved them eps, closest you saw Al to being vulnerable <3

    For me...

    Breaking Bad
    Malcolm In The Middle
    The Larry Sanders Show
    Deadwood
    The Office....UK!!

    Loads more already mentioned but these are the cream imo!

    Never heard of Berlin Alexanderplatz. I take it you'd recommend getting hold of it.

    Also makes me think I should have found a place for World at War in my list.
