    Was browsing through Empire magazine (Australian version) in a bookshop today. It had a list of the top 50 TV shows of the decade.

    The ones I can remember....
    1. Sopranos
    3. The Wire
    5. The West Wing
    6. Six Feet Under
    9. Mad Men
    14. Dexter
    19. Flight of the Conchords (iirc)

    Anyways, finally watched the last 4 episodes of Dexter. Wow!!

    1. The Sopranos
    2. The Wire
    3. Lost
    4. The West Wing
    5. Arrested Development
    6. Mad Men
    7. Curb Your Enthusiasm
    8. The Office (US)
    9. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
    10. Band of Brothers

    3. House
    4. The Shield
    5. Futurama
    6. The Colbert Report

    In the Empire list, I think AD came in 7th. The Office (UK) was at 5, with West Wing at 4 (not 5 like I posted earlier).

    Love it! Was really gun for the first few seasons, then went downhill a bit. Final series I found to be quite awful in comparison, but I didn't mind it overall.

    Largely in agreement with this. Very enjoyable.

    Teachers is gun. 4th suffered from not hving Brian and Kurt or Andrew Lincoln but was still good.

    Ever seen the American attempt to do it? AFAIK there was only one season and it was just rubbish in comparision, original was far too British to convert well.

    What is everyones top 5 television episodes of all time?

    The episodes of any show that just stand out on their own as masterful.

    I'd go in no particular order beyond the first by a long long way:

    Band of Brothers - Breaking Point
    The Simpsons - You Only Move Twice (Scorpio)
    Futurama - The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings (the initial end of series finale)
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Hush (the almost entirely silent episode)
    Trigun - Paradise (maybe Sledger might know this one, just a real tearjerker for me)

    Notable omissions being the second to last episode of the wire season 3, the last episode of BoB, a couple Simpsons episodes (Beer Baron etc.) and Firefly.
