    Top 5 favorite TV series

    Include comedies, dramas, whatever you like, and of any era. Here's mine:

    1) Blackadder - one of the greatest and most consistent (first series aside) British comedies ever, along with "Fawlty Towers".

    2) Twin Peaks - innovative and scary - like nothing else I have seen on TV, before or since.

    3) Law and Order: SVU - yes, the subject matter is often grisly, but some of the best crime writing going around, all squeezed into such an efficient format.

    4) Doctor Who - cardboard sets, a great blend between scifi and fantasy, and a long, rich history. Apparently gonna hit our screens again with a new doctor in '05.

    5) Seinfeld - one of those shows you either get or you don't, but I think most people do. Frequently hilariously funny and one of the greatest implementations of situational comedy ever.

    1:Seinfeld-By far the best comedy and my favourite of all time. Weird, but brilliant storylines which are always different and hilarious

    2:Simpsons-Just because it's lasted so long, and although it's not what it used to be, it's still a great show

    3: The Office-Great characters, well acted, just a very funny show. My type of humour

    4:The Panel (Australian)-My favourite interviewing type show. Good aussie blokes (and women) host this show, which makes it very funny. They are all quick witted and always have great chats with their guests, and also have funny skits

    5:Who's Line is it Anyway-I like this show because it's just so stupid and funny. Improv comedy will always be funny because of the silly things they can say and do.

    Haha, it's patchy, but occasionally riotous. The balding guy is a classic.

    Damn, forgot "The Office". Oh, and "Married With Children." Both would probably make my top ten though.

    I'm assuming animated shows are allowed. Top 5 are as follows:

    1. Seinfeld
    2. Family Guy
    3. The Simpsons
    4. Ed
    5. The Practice

    I hated "Home Improvement" - the kids and Al just annoyed the crap out of me.

    "The Mole" was really good though - to me, with the exception of the very first mole (and the footballer guy, who was the worst mole ever, 'cause he was the best damn contestant in the majority of the tasks), the moles have been a bit too easy to pick, the last couple of seasons. I wonder if they're doing another series of that, it's been a while.

    I like most reality T.V shows, but I HATE the Mole and Race Around The World.
