Uncontroversial top 5. No Seinfeld though.
How this show fails to get larger audiences is still beyond me. It isn’t your usual soppy teen soap opera and those that look beyond the football are rewarded with a dollop of enthralling drama about a community obsessed with the national sport.
FNL is brilliant.
I've heard a lot of good stuff about this show. It's in my queue for when I'm done with Mad Men, Breaking Bad and some other crap.
Supernatural almost in the top 10 though - and no Frasier? The fuck?
The first season of Firefly was great enough to warrant a mention to.
along with 30 Rock and Curb Your Enthusiasm. I suppose I should watch Battlestar Galactica since everyone's going on about it, but, yknow, it just sounds crap.
Battlestar Galactica = Sexy sentient robots nuke 99% of everyone, forcing the rest to escape into the vast coldness of uncharted space in a piece of shit metal coffin with guns. Crimson Tide in space.
That sounded crap to me too. But then I had to eat my words.
Nip/tuck is rightfully in there too. I really wanna see generation kill.
which is why there's no seinfeld, friends, frasier etc
Also, no Bucky O'Hare?! WAT!?
almost like after setting a target of 50 they ended up having to stick a few things in to make up the numbers
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia recently and it's bloody great.
It too deserves a spot.
Seinfeld, fair enough, it finished over a decade ago now. Frasier not much less.
But IASIP is genuinely amazing, one of the best sitcoms of recent years, up there with Curb and Arrested Development when it's on form.
I saw that for the first time a few weeks back - now there is a bad show
I resolved to never watch it on reading that.
should be top 5 imo
What the fuck is the wire?
Terrific. The 'straight-to-video' film is out now. Might be able to watch it tonight with a bit of luck.
i got both series recently, and have pretty much just been watching it non-stop since then. yay!
also, i now have a massive crush on tina fey.
That is an outrage. I have seen every single episode of this programme and it's a load of old rubbish.
I promised to watch it so that my girlfriend would watch the Sopranos in return. Compromise innit.
It seems to be on a critical par with The Wire, Mad Men, Soprano's etc...
Generation Kill was great, but still only a miniseries, and shouldnt be ranked above probably the best sitcom of recent times in AD. South park has had too high a shit:quality ratio to be truly great.
Even though after watching the 1st series of the shield i thought it was crap, it gets a million times better in later series and never seems to have a weak episode.
24 while being innovative in its first series has too rigidly followed the formula in later series, top 10 but not top 5.
My top 5 would be...
2. The Wire
3. The Sopranos
4. Arrested Development
5. The Shield
