What is it?

You can use any rationale you like - best written, funniest, most moving, whatever is most important to you. But you may only pick one show. Assume all other shows will be tied in a sack and drowned once you've made your commitment.

I've got to say Columbo, for sheer watchability. It manages to be interesting whilst completely formulaic, the main character is rock solid, and it successfully spanned decades (although the late 60s/early-mid 70s were the best, I think).

Plus, Robert Culp as a selection of the most odious people to grace to the earth. Leonard Nimoy, Bill Shatner, Leslie Nielsen, Jack Cassidy....what's not to love?

Breaking Bad I think has to be it. It's just so multilayered. The acting is amazing. The direction and cinematography is flawless, the writing is great. The score fits everything perfectly. The subtext is subtle and evocative without being pretentious. It's the perfect storm of everything just coalescing to become this amazing entity of a show.

I'm betting even the caterers on that show are fantastic. I just don't think I've seen everything come together the way that show does.

That's going to be a popular choice. I've deliberately not watched any episodes so I can binge watch it when it's over. I did that with Lost and ended up hating myself...getting off the couch was like coming out of hibernation.

I'd say for me it's between Seinfeld and The Wire. Two completely different shows, but both really successfully brought something new to television. For me, The Wire is one of the best written shows, so well written that at times it can be too clinical and considered "boring". It's like a Greek tragedy or epic, where you see the rise and fall of the heroes and villains, all interconnected in the Fates' webs where cause and effect rules all and bring weighted results, casualties, fortune, or whatever the Gods have determined long before these characters thought they had a choice.

Seinfeld's just funny as hell, and still holds up very well.

Co.Inkadink

There should be different categories because in comedy I'd say Seinfeld or the Office would be my favorite show. So Drama, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Soap Opera, what other categories?

Robert Culp or Peter Falk? :huh:

Either way, yes, Columbo is awesomely watchable, though I doubt I've ever sat through a full episode. It's one of those things you'd see starting whilst you eat your lunch and just sit through because of it's watchability.

For me, Battlestar Galactica. It's just so watchable, so enjoyable, and a heck of a lot of fun to talk about with other people when they watch (one of my new colleagues at my new job is in the middle of it, it's been good for bonding). It's a fantastic show for Sci-Fi lovers. That or Firefly. Preferably both, because Firefly is also amazing.

I agree. It was bit more of "an event" or "an experience" than a show.

I would have felt better about it if I had believed the writers knew the answers to all the questions, but it just seemed to be twist after twist after twist.

Hopefully writers have learned since then. Lost could've went down in history as one of the greatest shows of all time if they had thought it through, the audience was really expecting those answers. I can't recommend it to anyone because of the last season.
I remember Alan Moore I think saying you should write the ending first and write your way back filling in the gaps, at least have a clear ending in mind. If you ever watch Breaking Bad you'll see how satisfying questions being answered is. They really have it thought out and logical and it makes for a great story. Mad Men seems to keep this in mind as well.

That's kind of difficult to do with an ongoing series. Especially when you have a team of writers and not a single creator...and the fact that the showrunner may even change mid-series.

Marvel and DC should've done this a long time ago, have a Bible or history mapped out, things that can and can't be done, characters that can die* and ones that can't. The writers can either comply or go elsewhere, don't cater to the hot writers whims for the sake of the overall story.
I know it would be difficult to do but would be worth it in the end. If a showrunner or new writer came on board you hand him the Bible and if he agrees to the terms of the story he can stay.

*If you kill a character don't bring them back ever and you would have to have the agreement of everyone before you did it especially if it's a long running character, resurrecctions cheapen the origianl death story.

Well, it doesn't really matter, but some of the things they reference will make more sense if you alternate. There are a couple crossover events throughout the series. Mostly early on, but a few in later seasons of both. However, the crossover episodes in both series are largely one–offs, so both series can stand on their own two legs.

They should absolutely do that, but by and large that won't happen. Entertainment is a business. They don't make it to cater to folks like us, they create it for mass appeal. If the "hot writer" or showrunner or whatever will bring in ratings, he's going to get pretty much whatever deal he/she wants writing wise. Producers and network execs usually make their decisions based on how much money they can bring the stockholders, which unfortunately means they won't worry about being precious about the story.

I'd say it's better. Season 1 is kind of its own thing, different from the rest of the series. 4's problem is that it is kind of all over the place, and the Big Bad is kind of :blink: .

On the other hand, what it probably the best episode of the entire series is in season 4.

Yeah, Season 4 has some of the best stand alone episdoes, but as a whole lacks compared to the rest of the series....

Episodes like Hush, Something Blue, Beer Bad, and Restless raise the quality of the rest of the series...not to say the rest of the season is bad but as Bucky said....its very much all over the place and the themes that do tie together, while important, are sorta "meh"...and yeah the big bad is a little yawn-worthy....still...big things happen in season 4 and its not to be skipped for the sake of the rest of the series....cuz if you went from seaon 3 to season 5, you'd be like "When the hell did that happen?"

To be fair, the first series was kind of experimental - I don't think they expected to have a real hit on their hands. When they did, it was 'oh, crap - we really need to write something, now!'.

But, when they got to that realisation, they should THEN have worked out a proper ending because the one we got was just woeful and clearly made up on the spot with no reference at all to anything that had happened before. :mad:

Yeah but they had 5 more seasons to figure out what to do....I could sense things were falling to entropy by Season 5. Instead of the good "huh?" you got after watching it, you got the frustrated "huh???"....

The first few seasons felt like it was made up on the spot by a mad genius, wrecked out on Vodka, peyote, and lucas salt....

The last couple felt like it was made up on the spot by a schizophrenic doughnut.

I loved Lost - right up until the end. As the ridiculousness of the final episode unfolded I actually felt like crying. Up until that point, there was still a chance for them to pull something brilliant out of the hat. I thought I could see how it was going but I kept hoping against hope that they would give the whole thing a final twist and do something amazing. But they didn't...

Personally I like Beer Bad...and Superstar is kinda quirky, but way outta there...I'd definitely watch those just so you have the experience....they don't really contribute to the overall arc at all though (except some sagely advice in Superstar)....I dont think there's a single episode of Buffy that I'd tell you to stay away from...throughout the series....there's some landmark must see's.Season 4..Hush...Something Blue..Season 5: the Body, Checkpoints a good one...Season 6....ALL OF IT...Season 7: From Beneath You (one of the best single scenes in the entire series in this one IMO)....Chosen....just to name some drops in the bucket!

Supposedly, Benson didn't want to do it because she didn't want possibly the last appearance of Tara to be of her being mean-spirited. At least I read that somewhere.

Season 1 of Hereos....just season 1.
Man talk about a show that needed a Big Picture guy. They should have had the seasons mapped out and the Powers, they really screwed up the powers.

I just watched Hush last night! Probably my favorite so far, creepy and innovative. I have a friend who has always said SMG is a terrible actress but I think she's great, I never would've known except for this. Willow is a sweet character and adds a lot to the story, Spike is hilarious, especially the one where he and Buffy are engaged funny stuff.

Hush is the best episode of the series.

Sadly you're all wrong. The greatest TV series of all times was, is, and always will be Gilligan's Island! (respectful silence)
Followed closely by Wild Wild West and Hogan's Heroes.

You may now shut this thread down.

I am a big Mad Man fan but sorry Breaking Bad has done nothing for me...

SMG is a pretty decent actress imo. As far a being able to emote, and act without saying a single line, there are few better.

Goddammit why can't I 'like' individual posts??? :thumbs:

One of the best Japanese superhero show ever, until Saban Production made a travesty out of it.

Heroes had so much potential, it's a shame they couldn't think of anything original on their own without copying any existing comic book plot. Up to this day we'll never know what happened to that Irish girl who Peter idiotically left stranded in the future.

LOL yeah....I saw her in some shitty movie on Sci fi...but that's about it...though I do recall she devoted a lot of time to singing afterwards, maybe she was on tour...I think that's what I truly hated about Conversations with Dead People...the Willow/Cassie interaction felt flawed...we all knew Tara was supposed to be there...and I kinda hated Cassie in the Episode she was featured in....Help

she was writing
