    I'm really happy for you and I'm gonna let you finish but Lost is one of the best tv shows of all time!

    Despite bad last season(s).

    1 - FRIENDS
    2 - Doctor Who (but not so much the recent series)
    3 - Blackadder
    4 - Fawtly towers

    I'm not sure about the 5th, possibly big bang theory, but I can't really watch the same episode twice, unlike all the other ones I put down. So maybe the Inbetweeners... But it was not quite good enough... So I'm just going to say:

    5 - Rastamouse (Because it was genius...)

    In no particular order:

    House (during seasons 2 to 4, it was the best show i've seen on tv)
    Game of Thrones (still early days, but if the first season is anything to go by, it'll definitely be up there)
    Friends
    Sherlock
    Scrubs

    Honorable mentions would be Dexter, Arrested Development and Family Guy.

    All shows from the 90s.

    TV is terrible nowadays. I only watch Desperate Housewives, Family Guy, documentaries and Friends.

    Depends on whether you're asking for the most popular/long running series or everyone's personal favourites. If it's the former then Dad's Army, Blackadder, Only Fools & Horses etc would probably be there, just for sheer widespread popularity to this day.

    But going on personal favourites that I've actually watched at the time of airing:

    House
    Inbetweeners
    Men Behaving Badly
    The Office
    Any quality murder mystery series e.g. Lewis, Midsomer Murders

    Albeit all of the above have their drab episodes occasionally.

    24 and Prison Break are by far the best TV series I've watched.

    For comedy, it has to be The Big Bang Theory
