    Friends, The Vampire Diaries, One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy are amongst mine. I can't choose a fifth.

    For me, there's a clear number 1, Community.

    It's an absolutely fantastic show, the funniest ensemble comedy I've ever seen that incorporates some real emotional scenes beautifully. Seriously, if you've never seen it look the show up, the first season starts off a little slow since it's a very character driven show, but after a few episodes you'll be hooked.

    1. Life on Mars
    2. Breaking Bad
    3. Sherlock
    4. Doctor Who (classic series-not new!)

    Others which I considered and would shortly follow on a slightly longer list; Only Fools and Horses, Blackadder, The IT Crowd, Minder, Fawlty Towers, Ashes to Ashes.

    You people all really need to watch The Sopranos. Seriousy, it lives up to the hype - it is indisputably the greatest TV series of all time.

    Personally I think:

    1. The Sopranos
    2. Game of Thrones (even though not as good as books)
    3. Mad Men
    4. Inbetweeners
    5. Futurama
  13. Offline

    1) The Wire
    2) Sopranos
    3) Breaking Bad
    4) Spartacus
    5) Game of Thrones
  14. Offline

    1. Friends
    2. The Big Bang Theory
    3. Dexter
    4. Modern Family
    5. Miranda

    I'm sure there are other great ones, but these are based on the ones I've seen.

    Am I the only person who always thought Friends is boring as ****?

    Big Bang Theory because it's the only comedy I actually find funny/bearable
    Sex and the City

    There are loads of others, and lots that I want to get into, too.

    Breaking Bad
    Arrested Development

    In no particular order, and keeping in mind that I have not seen greats such as The Wire, The Sopranos, The Shield, Game of Thrones, and more, of course.

    I wouldn't say the greatest of all time, but my favorites are:

    1. Sherlock
    2. Friends
    3. House
    4. The Big Bang Theory
    5. Lie to Me (taught me a lot!) or Mad Men.
