Mike, you are more man that I. If I was honest I would have posted Buffy (or Angel… maybe Angel) in my Top 5. You are a brave man who is comfortable in his skin.

4. Alf
3. The Shield
2. The Wire
1. M*A*S*H

No one has mentioned Homicide?

1: Homicide – Life on the Street.
2: Seinfeld
3: X Files
4: Haunted History – it’s so funny!
5: Sunrise Earth – I don’t know why, but I can’t turn this off.

Kudos for Mike for boldy giving props to what IS one of the greatest shows ever in Buffy. It’s definitely one of those things where you don’t believe it until it sucks you in, and then your REALLY believe it!

The fave 5 segment is excellent, btw.

tom in minne

One more honorable mention – Dexter
Tampa Pete

Mike –

Joss Whedon did a short lived but truly awesome Sci-Fi show called Firefly. Only 14 episodes long, so not long enough to be a top 5, but definitely worth a NetFlix

nice choices with the Xfiles and OZ. When OZ first came on,it was unlike any other show on TV. Looking at it now,its less shocking considering many shows followed its lead. The acting was great. Adebeci still scares me! Anyboby could die at any time.

I am with you on the Simpsons,Sienfeld and Six Feet Under.

kaveman stole my thunder with Homicide- You guys should get some Box sets from the first 4 seasons. Truly Great Show!

1. Homicide- Life on the Street
2. Seinfeld
3. Xfiles
4. Simpsons
5. OZ

Dont forget the ODD COUPLE!!!!!
30 Rock is real good.
Still waiting for John from Cincinnati to come back.
Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ!

thanks for the back up on Buffy.

Homicide was a tremendous show and most people don’t know that Belzer’s charatcer of det. Munch jumped from Homicide to SVU. By the way how dangerous is Baltimore with Homicide and the Wire.

Know about Friefly but only saw some of them

Besides myself waiting for Dexter season 2.

MASH i didnt like but I think it was an age thing.

Great stuff everyone…..Siano
