Your Turn

I can't believe it, but I don't think I have ever asked this question. With the season premiere of Lost just a few nights away, I thought this would be the perfect time. It is actually two questions.

#1 - Favorite TV show of all time
#2 - Favorite TV show currently airing.

There are lots of television shows that I have loved through the years. Sopranos is probably my favorite, but I could make a case for Arrested Development, Arli$$, Amazing Race, The IT Crowd, and David Letterman when he was back on NBC. As for a show currently airing, I would have to go with IT Crowd or Lost.

Holy shitbah, I love The IT Crowd. I always have to defend it.

I need to give this a proper thought.

Lisa (not original) said...

Bones. Love that show

mazemerizing said...

Of all time - The Dick Van Dyke Show.


Currently on, I'm gonna say this season's Dexter, even though it's over, but I'm sure Lost will soon replace that. Can. Not. Wait.

Icecat said...

Wow. So many to choose from!

1. Tie between Moonlighting & Six Feet Under.

Marisa said...

oh god this one is hard

1. def Arrested Development. So good. Also liked Sex and the City when it was on- now it's just so played out that it's sad. Rome was amazing too- wish they'd done more seasons. Also Gargoyles (the cartoon was amazing and there were some really cool references to Shakespear lit) Also the original TMNT cartoon on Saturda mornings rocked.

2. 30 Rock really is great. But I could also argue for True Blood and Project Runway.

Patty said...

I fell in love with the Mary Tyler Moore show when it was running daily on Nick at Night. Great, great show.

Current - tie between Top Chef and Holmes on Homes (HGTV - 10:00 Sunday). Mike Holmes goes into people's homes (hence the title) where they had a remodeling nightmare via a bad contractor. He takes out everything the bad contractor did (and there are some doozies), fixes it and gives the homeowner something better than they had originally planned. Some of these were major home remodels, like finished basements or additions where the poor workmanship isn't visible. He usually finds way more than what was thought to be originally wrong.

ZennyPenny7 said...

Fav show of all-time is Cosby hands down. Fav show currently on (hiatus, but still) is Dexter. It makes me squeeee! :D

childeroland said...

#1 - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
#2 - A toss-up between Inuyasha: The Final Act, Naruto Shippuden, and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood

sinkabella said...

I read CDAN everyday and I can't believe this is the first time I am posting. Enty-ur THE best! Best TV show of all time is I Love Lucy. Nothing will ever compare. When they used to compare D.Messing (possible coke mom)to Lucille Ball that was a slap in LBs face. Timeless, classic...even when my mom passed and I didn't come out of my house for a month I watched Lucy and she ALWAYS made me smile. I have the complete collection - went to Jamestown NY to Lucy-land and to see her grave. Don't watch much now - GH (James Franco was so hot on it) and Desp Housewives and Bro/Sisters.

Treesap-Covered Lady, the Humanist said...

1. It's a tie between Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls (Both Bryan Fuller creations, along with the wonderful Pushing Daisies)

2. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Miss(pdx) said...

@ marisa - I really wish they would have continued at least a season or two more of Rome. It was great. Castor Pullox yum!

I decided on a toss up for questions #2 - second choice would be Trailer Park Boys ...easy! That show does nothing but make me happy.

Icecat said...

Yeah RocketQueen I suck at these type of games. Everything is usually my favorite :)

I do have to mention 2 more shows that are my "favorites", and I could smack myself for not thinking of them because they have been a part of my life for so long...

The Simpsons
Futurama

Okay I'm done... I promise!

Breaking Bad is def the best show on tv right now IMO.

Brian Cranston is a frickin' genius actor.

kelly said...

Current Favourite is Sons of Anarchy it used to be Bones until they brought in the Sweets character.

Favourite of all time; Huh that is tough considering I am additcted to TV. There are a few probably

Supernatural (I watch reruns and still enjoy it)
Dallas (Cringe...but I watched it right up until the last episode so I guess I must have loved it--- A LOT) and
Little House On The Prarie and
The Waltons

ihpguy said...

Showing my age here...........

THE PAPAER CHASE with the great John Houseman

skeeball said...

1. Magnum, PI(still holds up today on DVD), Dallas, Knots Landing~Thursdays and Fridays nights on CBS were great in the 1980's~loved Dynasty, too!! LOL and a real oldie, Hawaii 5-0

2. Lost is the best show!! I am totally into it! Jack or Sawyer, such a tough choice!!

cosina said...

In the 80's Tim Reid had a show called Frank's Place that was so good.

Weeds, Dexter, In Treatment

ms_goddess said...

I'm really into reruns of The Nanny right now. 2 hours every night on Nick!!!

Don't really watch enough TV to get into a series now. And football season is pretty much over - harrumph!

SJ said...

There's no way this is hard and fast, but here goes:

1) Seinfeld is an obvious candidate for best of all time. Frasier is another great classic (whatever happened to Kelsey Grammer's career anyway). I also confess, I was OBSESSED with Dawson's Creek and Party of Five.

2) House has been my favorite for a few years, but maybe getting old. I'm really digging Fringe right now -- love me some Joshua Jackson.

Aimée said...

I just can't choose...

I guess i'll go with The Simpsons for #1 & #2, because it just doesn't get boring and i've loved it since i can remember. And maybe Sex & The City for #1 too...

Paisley said...

1. Buffy
2. Mad Men

ms_goddess said...

Sinkabella - I love "I Love Lucy" too (though not the later shows). I think one of the reasons I love "The Nanny" so much is during the episode where Fran fills in for Maggie as a candy striper and a doctor, thinking she's a nurse, orders her to shave Mr. Sheffield for his emergency appendectomy, her actions reminded me so much of Lucy when she got into one of her predicaments - I was rolling! Now I find myself looking for scenes to compare. Plus I just love Fran's outfits (and dreaming I could someday get one thigh into them...)

nancer said...

THE WIRE.

current favorite: tie between SONS OF ANARCHY and DAMAGES.

CaliGirlinVA said...

Woohoo for the Twin Peaks fans! When I was going to college in San Diego, there was a diner that had Twin Peaks night...coffee and cherry pie all around! It was so fun.

#1. Twin Peaks, Sopranos

Ahh, how did I forget Freaks and Geeks as well as Undeclared?!?

Man, everyone's comments have made me realize that I need to update my Netflicks queue in a major way.

Marina Ortiz said...

NOW

1. Battlestar Gallactica/Caprica (they are part of the same universe and therefore count as one, damnit)
2. Lost

THEN

1. The X-Files
2. Buffy/Angel (same universe)

Can't decide whether I prefer the good old days or the here and now so I went with both. Don't get me started on the 80s or 70s.

Amit! said...

Actually, it's a tie between BtVS and Golden Girls.

And for #2 - Ugly Betty, Gossip Girl, Chuck and Glee make my second, third, and fourth, in no particular order.

work4shoes said...

I was content to just enjoy everybody's guesses. But @ ihpguy, I LOVED THE PAPER CHASE too!! Professor Kingsfield was the best.

I guess my favorite current show is Mad Men.

NYer said...

1. Alias Smith and Jones; MI5; Game, Set, Match; the Sandbaggers.

2. Dexter; Weeds; Californication; Archer; Madmen.

non said...

Tough Question! Lots to choose from...

1. The Simpsons
2. Mad Men

non said...

p.s. I really like Lost too!

Dianne P said...

1. The Wire (with love and kisses to Arrested Development, Mary Tyler Moore show, The Office, and The Sopranos)

2. hmmm. Probably 30 Rock or The Office when it's good.

AphraelDanae said...

Oh damn. There's been so many...

I was a hardcore X-Phile back in the day. Even after season 5, when the show had started to 'jump the shark', I stuck by it. Seasons 8 and 9 were admittedly a struggle to watch...

Though I got into it late, I loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I really need to get the rest of the seasons on DVD.

As for now, I try not to miss House or Grey's Anatomy, though they've both been...lacking...the last couple of seasons. Doctor Who is a definate must watch, though I'm a bit hesitant about the 'new' Doctor. And I've been watching a lot of a wonderful quiz show hosted by Stephen Fry called QI on YouTube. I <3 him.

Julie said...

yay ali for saying huff. i love that show, i'm trying to think of something i watched when i was a kid though... maybe rags to riches. i loved that shit then. And the State was amazing. Then Stella. AHHH too many to choose from.
Finally, I will say hooperman. ;D

as for now, i like royal pains a whole lot because though i'm not a concierge doctor, i relate? LOL especially to his girlfriend. She = me. She even kinda resembles me.
I also like Childrens Hospital. if you haven't seen it, google it. Not to mention another David Wain show, Michael and Michael Have Issues.

Similar to AphraelDanae above, I didn't watch the last year or two.

UK = Ab Fab and Doctor Who/Torchwood (same universe, people)

Marina Ortiz said...

Oops. Meant to attach Millennium to my X-Files choice (again, same universe).

hammyjam said...

Well for past probably Sex and the City, though I did really like Life As We Know It and it should have lasted more than one season. Oh! And Tales From the Crypt and Masters of Horror!

Now..so many. Almost any show on HBO or Showtime. Psych. Chuck. Lost. 30 Rock.

And these are only about 1/3 of the shows that I love.

Odette said...

i am so glad to see Buffy the Vampire Slayer being represented on here!!! LOVE THAT SHOW TO PIECES and even got my boyfriend into it. He also agrees that the writing was just phenomenal and ahead of its time.

My choices:

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Seinfeld

2. Breaking Bad/LOST

Reese said...

Favorite of all time might be Alias, but I don't think I really have an all-time favorite.

Currently airing: a tie between House and 24.

I love this question!

1. A tie between Buffy, Firefly, X-Files, and Freaks & Geeks
2. It's almost painful to narrow it down, so I'll say Glee, Community, The Office, 30 Rock, and Friday Night Lights

Treesap-Covered Lady, the Humanist said...

Ms. Ramona Narrow said...

1. The Wire - I don't think that anybody who watched at least one full season (a few episodes isn't enough to get how brilliant this show is)would argue. Quite simply the most intelligent, engaging,complex, emotionally wrenching show in the history of the medium

2. Weeds or Big Love.

Interplanet Janet said...

1. X-Files
2. Family Guy

Mooshki said...

Marina, have you watched 'Millenium' again on dvd? It's held up even better than the 'X-Files' imho. I also think that 'Angel' held up better than 'Buffy.'

I'm going to add a "favorite classic show" pick to my list, because I can't go without mentioning "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." Robert Vaughn is my #1 celeb crush of all time.

Anonymous said...

Sons of Anarchy on FX rocks!!!

ATP said...

Wow, this is hard. I'm afraid I can't do just one.

All time: Deadwood, The Wire, China Beach, Moonlighting, The West Wing

Now: Supernatural, definitely, followed extremely closely by Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, and Sons of Anarchy

1. Cheers
2. Californication

Melody the First said...

Past, to be different, I'll say "Wiseguy" (brilliant show that's almost impossible to rerun because of the arc concept that it invented).

Present, to be different, I'll say Criminal Minds.

Elaine said...

1. Can't list just one. Friends, Alias and The West Wing
2. Lost and Bones

Wiseguy was excellent, good pick.

1. Firefly, Arrested Development, La Femme Nikita (it didn't age well, but I LOVED it in high school)

On a side note, I would be very happy to see Adam Baldwin in the random photos sometime. His politics are awful but he has the most gorgeous legs...

Of all time:

QUANTUM LEAP!!!!

Now--don't watch tv, but I download episodes of Heroes and HIMYM.

Survivor/Amazing Race will always be top five, too.

Caroline said...

1. The X-Files for drama and Arrested Development for comedy. The relationship between Scully and Mulder was very well-written and, to me, the show isn't even about monsters, aliens, and government conspiracies, it's about the importance of having a close friend stand by you despite whatever fucked up thing is happening in your life.


2. Burn Notice, which is pure escapist fun and Breaking Bad, which is about the depths a good person can sink when confronted by a severe crisis. I agree with the poster who said Bryan Cranston is a genius actor. You can see the helplessness and rage in him. As an aside, Vince Gilligan, who worked on the X-Files is the creator of Breaking Bad.

Anonymous said...

Arrested Development and Dallas. My hubby and I are younger and are watching the series via dvd. That show was awesome! Actually, did the same thing with Remmington Steele and liked it quite a bit.

Now, I'm still a 24 fan, and really like Castle.

Majik said...

F me, I forgot about Laverne & Shirley....LOVE that show!!

*also admitting to Buffy/Angel*

This is hard!!

chihuahuense said...

oh, I forgot about Intervention and Hoarders. They are a very recent obsession.

Oh, and Soup. Damn, I suck at this.

RocketQueen said...

Kind of off-topic, but for YEARS while the show was on and afterwards, I loved Cheers. Like LOVED Cheers. About five years ago I was watching a re-run and that entire episode was about the patrons and staff learning that "someone" in the bar was gay and trying to figure out who it was so they could kick him out.
It totally soured me on Cheers. I know it was a different time, but still..

Lioness70 said...

1 - Monty Python's Flying Circus
2 - Phineas & Ferb (this is a Disney cartoon. It's a blast. Watch it with your kids someday.)

Props to the person who said The Soup. I didn't consider that style of show but it is the BEST EVER.

1 & 2: Friday Night Lights

selenakyle said...

Sh*t, I forgot about Twin Peaks!

Bur if I'm forgetting TV shows, I might as well include Bosom Buddies and Flamingo Road from way back.

selenakyle said...

@Mooshki--I was so pissed when Milennium tanked right before Y2K. I had no life outside of the confines of home at that time, and I had such high hopes for Chris Carter's creative output, and then *poof* nuthin'.

Sucked.

selenakyle said...

@Lioness70--our grandkids don't like it at all. I'm convinced it's for adults, much like so may cartoons over the decades...thus the 9:00pm Har Har Tharsdays time slot!

ardleigh said...

Wow Lost for both I guess.

Although there have been some REALLY great shows over the years.
Magnum P.I., In Search Of, Millenium, Witchblade, Touching Evil, Law and Order, The Equalizer, Miami Vice... I was WAY to into the tube when I was a teenager

Jesslikesstuff said...

Oooooh! Such a tough one. Of all time. OK...

Of all time: It's gotta be a tie --

1. Cheers, Homefront, Barney Miller, I Love Lucy, The Cowboys (I was 8). I can't decide.

2. Big Bang Theory and Ghost Whisperer

Wait...Does anybody remember "Best of the West"? Loved that one too, but it didn't last long AT ALL, but it was FUNNY!

Mooshki said...

Since someone mentioned 'The Soup,' this isn't really off-topic, right? Quote of the day, from Joel McHale:

"This week the internet toilet was clogged with hearsay regarding a possible breakup between Brad and Angelina."

Best metaphor ever.

2# Since LOST isn't currently airing, I would say, The Office, Im formerly from Scranton, so it's fun watching the little things that remind me of home. Lest I forget the actors/Comedians on that show-dry witty humor ROCKS!

"Firefly" edges out "Carnivale" by a hair.

Current fav: "Firefly". I have the DVD set. What can I say, I never got over its cancellation and I never will. *snifflewah*

Actually, atm I never miss an episode of Project Runway. Heh, I know. What a dichotomy.
