In your opinion - what show do you have in mind for having outstanding dialogue either in a comedic/comic sense, it's generally really funny, creative, referential and intelligent in its' writing and jokes (for Sitcoms for example) or in just the way that it's written in a dramatic sense

As a drama you think it's got realistic dialogue, making believable and real characters with great rapport / banter, as well as making for great dramatic scenes / drama in general

For me

Lost (Totally had the believable characters, high tension, super dramatic moments, as well as humour and references to pop culture, generally a well written show with realistic dialogue to boot and helps to suspend disbelief seeing the genre the show is in)

Life Unexpected

Arrested Development (I'd say it's one of if not the best written sitcom ever)

True Blood

How I met your Mother (same as arrested Development imo, the continual creativity in the show stands out)

Community

Also want to add 30 Rock to the list ofc! really well written and creative
None of the ones you've added, they're **** (well at least in my view).

Some of the best are Monty Python, Goodies, Dad's Army, Angry Boys, The Inbetweeners, Outnumbered, Mock the Week, Summer Heights High, Ripping Yarns, Allo! Allo!, South Park and many, many others.

The Inbetweeners

The Simpsons

The Big bang theory

Comedy is a hard thing to right but those ones write it well. I know however The Simpsons has the advantage of being a cartoon and a familiar one with familiar characters....but it's written well.

so happy someone else knows this show

i thought the US office was pretty good too. The humour can be a lot different to the british one at times, but both of them are pretty good.

so the british one could maybe be put here too, since it brought that mockumentary style into the open.

Another show i thought was well intelligent was House, but maybe that's because a lot of the words smart, medical terms :ashamed:

I only watch a couple of shows, so:

30 Rock.
The Big Bang Theory.
NCIS.
Fringe. (Well, maybe not THAT well written, given how much of a mindf*** it is a lot of the time.)

NCIS? One of the most generic and obvious US shows there is!

Have you ever actually watched Arrested Development? I find it hard to believe that anybody could think that MTW is better than AD

Distinct lack of people mentioning Frasier. One of the best written shows out there imo.

The IT Crowd, guaranteed to make me smile. Actually quite surprised no-one's said it yet, but there we go.

And, erm, Horrible Histories on CBBC ^^ . Definitely creative and it teaches children (and adults pretending to be children, such as myself) all sorts of fun facts =D .

You are all wrong, Supernatural is the best show that has ever existed.

Also add studio 60 on the sunset strip, Futurama to that (the jokes in futurama are so well crafted, consistent and generally funny, the good writing shines through)
