Favourite serie ?

So, there's a lot of chat going on here about TV series.
What's your fav' one(s) ?
(I'm sure I forgot a lot of them, I just put the ones that came through my mind, anyway the polls are limited to 15 options)
I guess mine is Lost.

Yes, 4400 should be there instead of Sarah Conor Chronicals.
Sarah Conor Chronicals was fun, but how can we judge on just one eppisode?

Also,I Dream of Jeannie, but no Bewitched? tsk tsk.
What about Get Smart?
If we are going for classic shows. Or Bilko?
==
Farscape is my all time #1, it just got better and better.

Lost is probably next on my list. Its much more patchy, but its script-writting and charecters are top-notch. Also, when it does pay-off, it pays of big.

Prison Break next, for being supprisingly entertaining despite a (seamingly) limited concept. Great acting too.

Probably after that is 24, Buffy, 4400, Stargate ect ect.

Friends and Xfiles just went too far downhill, so they are at the bottom of my list I think.

Heroes Id probably place just after Prison Break, but I want to give it 2 seasons to judge fully.

I can't vote in the poll, I've only seen two episodes of Friends of those listed (I was forced to watch it at school).

Still, I love Simpsons, Family Guy and Futurama. American Dad can be OK at times.

They teach "friends" at schools? Too bad they don't teach Lost, I always claimed it should replace Bible lessons.

In this specific poll my votes goes for Stargate, Farscape and X-files (where X-files mainly gets a vote due to the very strong nostalgia I get from this show).

Its not that 24 isn't good, and was even great at earlier seasons. Same goes with Heroes season 1 beginning.(I also like DayBreak, Survivor, Futurama, FireFly, The 70's show) But in the end its not top-notch TV shows.
And heck they're all good, but not extraordinary.

So its kinda unfair to judge Lost right now, but for now I'll vote Lost and Friends.
Both are 'something else' of their genre.
But again judging a show before it ends is unfair.(Regarding Lost)

And don't forget Dragon Ball Z people. Quality show, even though some think its childish.

I voted Heroes and 24 because they're things I watch.
I think Heroes might be my favourite thing at the moment, but I don't really think this should be a poll!
Too many people watch more different things.

nah, a poll good.
At least as long as Farscape's winning.
If it starts losing then the poll's stupid

Heck, maybe when theres nothing to watch next year people who missed it might start watching farscape and see how brillent it was/is.

Dont know.
Purhapes with a show like Lost, which has a lot to fix together.

But I think most stuff is judgable after 2 seasons.
I mean, Stargate SG1 has those 2 films/dvds left to go, but I dont think that makes the show unjudgeable yet overall.
Ditto for Futurama, or Reboot.
Things would have to radicaly go down hill, or radicaly get even better in order for the remaining bits to effect my view overall much.

Stuff like Prison Break meanwhile, has been consistantly brillent, so I feel fair to place it dispite it not being "over".

It has a cool name.

Farscape is a feast best served immediately.

Or you could go for the more traditional IMDB description of Farscape. I prefer the former.
