Star Trek is my fave by a long way, I watch it at least 3-4 times a week. But then I don't really have time to watch anything else, maybe a film on the weekend.

I really enjoyed Firefly when it was on, and Big Bang Theory (we're between seasons at the moment). And My Name is Earl was brilliant.

I've always loved Star Trek, especially TNG and DS9. I love Buffy TVS too.
These are the best of the best for me, but i like tv shows so i like a lot of them.
Gilmore Girls, friends, stargate sg1, Battlestar Galactica is very well done, even if it makes my heart bump every minute :agit: :agit:
x-files, dharma&greg... I can't even remember all of the shows I watched and liked...
I like Babylon 5 too but They sell only season 1 on dvd here :(

Of current shows that are on, the only one I make any effort to watch is Ghost Hunters and sometimes Destination Truth - which is hysterical! I'll watch Lost as the episodes hit the web, and gave up on Heroes completely last season. In fact, we were just talking about saving the cost of cable service because we watch so little TV. :shock:

I don't know about you, but I felt cheated at how B5 ended.
Everything was rushed and it left too many questions unanswered.

The scene with the Daleks saying Exterminaten, Exterminaten in one episode was hilarious!!

I love Eureka too, and

The Gilmore Girls (mmmm, Luke)
Buffy/Angel
The Star Treks
Monk
Golden Girls
Family Guy
American Dad
Medium
Dexter
Bones
NCIS
CSI (Vegas and New York. Miami can go jump)
Charmed
Doctor Who
Torchwood (didn't watch the first series, but tuned in for the second because James "Spike" Marsters was going to be in it :oops: and stayed with it. Children of Earth was tremendous television)
Diagnosis Murder (Dick van Dyke is a god)
Murder She Wrote (a guilty pleasure)
Colombo (also a guilty pleasure)

and many, many more, plus I've just ordered the S1-S3 boxset of Supernatural - a bargain on Amazon for under thirty quid.

Oh, and don't forget the televisual experience that was Dallas, Dynasty, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest, etc, etc, etc!!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

For the TV series that would be:

Battlestar Galactica (new one, of course)
Firefly
Lexx
X Files
Rome
Northern Exposure
Robin of Sherwood (with Pread only!)
MP's Flying Circus :D
The Muppet Show
and even The Fraggle Rock (always had a soft spot for Doozers, me)

might have forgotten one or two but that's what age does to you.

Almost all the panel/quiz shows even including University Challenge as Paxman rulz!

And of course Top Gear with Clarkson being the brightest star on the Beeb's firmament. Although James May has definitely the best solo shows outside TG. Hamster's expendable.
