    In no particular order:

    Desperate Housewives
    Friends
    Grey's Anatomy

    All of them are amazing, but I have particularly loved the last season of Desperate Housewives, all the story-lines and the characters have been so good! Wish they were doing another season...

    So I'm just going to put my 5 favourites,

    1 24
    2 The Wire
    3 Breaking Bad
    4 The Sopranos

    I would say Dexter, but the first season of Homeland was so good that Ill stick that in fifth
    such a shame it took 8 posts before someone posted a decent list. I pretty much agree with your list but I've been watching game of thrones and I would add it to that list just not sure where.

    Sherlock
    Doctor Who
    The big bang theory/ Scrubs
    Glee
    Chuck
    (Lost and Once upon a time also almost made it on to the list. Although once upon a time is relatively new, but it is very good so far despite not having finished its first season yet).

    I forgot merlin and Torchwood as well. I'm not quite sure which would be my top five now.

    Wtf is it with The Office? Am I genuinely the only person alive who thinks that Ricky Gervais writes the biggest piles of dross ever?

    No Order;

    Life On Mars/Ashes to Ashes
    Luther
    Hustle
    Lie to Me
    House

    But there are so many good ones, that list would change depending on my mood.

    if it was about a singles series...

    1. First Series of Prison Break
    2. First Series of Luther
    3. First Series of Life on Mars (2 and 3 easily interchangeable)
    4. Torchwood - Children of Earth
    5. First Series of Mad Dogs

    But I regret not being able to put Hotel Babylon up there or Spooks, Scrubs, Eli Stone... possibly Black Books (but doubtful)... Doctor Who... and undoubtedly more. :P

    Edit: SHERLOCK! How could I have forgotten that?! Definitely Sherlock somewhere!
