Lost would be much higher up the list for me if the ending wasn't what the writers said they would never do (really early on) because it trivialized everything in the series. Basically we got toward the end and it was , wait - that can't be where we are going, because the writers already said they wouldn't do that.

Again, the Sopranos is the greatest (consistent) show I've ever seen not named Breaking Bad.

guy - vice versa; haven't seen the wire yet.

The Wire is probably the most in depth drama in the history of television. It's really involved and feels the most "real" of any show that's probably ever been on. I mean, it is REALLY involved and smart. But when I think "Best Series", I'm not sure if I would say that necessarily. Best Series is also cultural impact and The Wire is such a niche show that not many people have seen. That's why I'm not sure I'd give it the title.

To me, LOST and Sopranos were 2 shows that were both great AND sort of defined TV in a way because of their overall impact.

Nip/Tuck and The Shield have something to say about this.

The first two seasons of Nip/Tuck are amazing. The writers ran out of ideas though.

The Shield was amazing all the way until the end. It's the only show that is up there with Breaking Bad.

The Shield just makes it under the 10 year rule. Best written show in tv history.


Breaking Bad the only thing close imo.

The Wire

The Simpsons - The quality dropped, but overall it's still better than the wannabees.

I'm really digging Modern Family, and Happy Endings as well. Very funny shows right now. And HOLY **** - Todd Margaret is comedic gold!

South Park is one of the more overrated shows out there. I don't know how many terrible episodes I've watched only too see sheep praise it online.

If you didn't list The Wire, then you haven't seen The Wire.

I'm gonna go with:

The Wire
Battlestar Galactica
Breaking Bad

After watching The Wire and shows like Breaking Bad, Sopranos almost comes off like a cartoon.

i'll admit it is in decline too, but right now they are putting out better episodes than the simpsons. both south park and the simpsons are trying to replicate things that gave them success in the past. but it isn't working as well anymore. south park tries to hard on topical social commentary and the simpsons keep rehashing tired jokes that include some sort of pop culture reference.

Right, people are sheep simply due to the fact that they disagree with your elitist opinions.

No, because they're easily swayed. LOL at elitist opinions.
