    What's wrong with MASH!!! I love MASH, I watch the reruns every weekend! Either way, very impressive list. I agree on most of them, actually more of them than I'd like to admit. I didn't think of a lot of those when making my list. Good job!

    Uh-oh...went over. Trim my list?!

    Well, some of those shows I just like a lot. I'm sure there are a few that got by me which I may like better, but just forgot about. Hmmm, they're 85% comedies. What can it mean? Is that what TV does best? Otherwise, I used to watch PBS, like nonfiction all the time. (No cable for the last three years.)

    I said that because somewhere in this thread somebody else went on about how horrible a show it was and how they still watched it. I can't watch it now because it just doesn't interest me. I was forced to watch it during dinner time as a child and I guess I had enough of it then. :)

    That makes sense. Being forced to watch something can certainly influence how you feel about it. Besides, if you've seen every episode 5 times, it isn't really funny anymore.

    This'll be tough.. I don't watch tv. I only watch when forced to.

    1. South Park
    2. The Simpsons (the older episodes)
    3. The X Files (also the older episodes)
    4. Desperate Housewives
    5. Prison Break
    6. Sex and the City
    7. Beverley Hills 90210
    8. The Outer Limits
    9. The 4400(where's the 2nd season? )
    10. 7de Laan(South African tv)

    I mostly watch these on dvd except for number 10. But I forget that I have a television so I'd far rather read than watch tv. Except for South Park cause that I have on my Ipod. :)

    Unlike Angerball, all I do is watch TV, so I've worked very hard at narrowing it down to my top ten of all time:

    (in no particular order)

    1. Arrested Development (sob!)
    2. The Simpsons seasons 1 - 9
    3. Lost
    4. Seinfeld
    5. Superted
    6. The Office (BBC)
    7. Black Books
    8. Spaced
    9. Gumby
    10. Smallville

    I may change my mind in five minutes, though....

    Dexter, anyone?

    May I introduce a show that might just feature on my top 10 shows after one or two seasons? Dexter's amazing. It's funny how likeable a serial killer can be.

    Hey all!

    1) House Wow. But any character that pays homage to Holmes is amazing!

    2) Friends The only sitcom I find funny. Colorful and loveable characters.

    3) The X-Files Come one of my predominant passions is the paranormal..plus I was, and still am come to think of it, in love with Fox Mulder.

    4) Xena I do her battle cry all the time. She empowered women and was just a straight up bad ass. I didn't even mind Xena/Gabrielle.

    5) Whose Line Is It Anyway? Funniest show ever! Improv is pure gold...good improv! Ryan, Collin, and Wayne are three Gods!

    6) The Simpsons I must pay homage to the good seasons...they haven't been good for a long time...but back in the day...dynamite!

    7) Malcom in the Middle A genius show, at least the first three seasons.

    8) Smallville Seasons 1-3 my God, the show went from great to one of the worst shows ever! But I must again pay homage because I, being a huge Superman fan, was obsessed for the first 3 seasons.

    9) Stargate SG-1 Very likeable TV show. I like sci-fi in general.

    10) Masterpiece Theatre
    Heck yes! I'm a geek I get it.

    I agree, seasons two and three were lacklustre, but the show has really picked up from the fourth up to the sixth season. Lex is truly becoming a badass now (just like we want him to:) ), and Clark isn;t as annoying as he used to be. Now if only Lana would die....

    I liked seasons 1-3...I hated 4 on. It got way to uncanon for my taste. Once Lois came into the picture I was done.
