I can't choose just one, these are brilliant : Lewis, Sherlock, the David Tennant Dr. Who series, and honourable mentions to Monarch Of The Glen, Kingdom, Rosemary and Thyme.

As Time Goes By..certainly the best if, as I believe, it stretched into this century.

Well, since you say "What WAS the best TV series", I assume you mean TV shows that are completed. I'd say that for me, both Lost and 24 were the two best shows of this century so far. Not only were they enjoyable, but they both were quite significant within the TV industry as well.

In terms of shows that are still running, Breaking Bad and Dexter are my favorites - although their legacy will depend in large part on how they end.

And I agree with Kacee... Sherlock is fantastic.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia for comedy (Seasons 1-5)

Breaking Bad for drama. Hands down, the victor.

It's Always Sunny (seasons 1-about three); it's really, really gone downhill the last couple of years. Phoned in, repetitive, contractually obligated episodes that are a pale shadow of what once was. Remember the "Night Man" episode? Now that was good ASIP.

Hard to argue with the Breaking Bad, but the final season so far has been pretty thin gruel; boy, do I miss Gus Fring! The end-of-half-season cliffhanger was just awful! A montage? Really? That's the best they could do?

Hope the big wrap up is a return to form.

The Night Man episode was absolute gold. The street fighter one, where Charlie and Dee are on steroids, the Mac and Charlie Die episode, the Virgin Mary water stain episode, the pub crawl episode..."Oh shoot dude, you see that door marked Pirate, you think a pirate lives in there??"....1-3 are definitely excellent. I think four still had that flare as well, and five was the last one where it was still largely present. The following seasons are hit and miss and lately oh my God, the writing just blows.

Gus Fring was the MAN....Simple as that. One of my favorite characters in tv and film forever. Super bad a s s mother trucker.... I'm four eps into season five, so I've yet to see the midseason cliff hanger....four episodes away....but my buddies say it was crazy so I will have to see. Really really loved seasons 1-4 though...very intense stuff. I loved the episode with the cartel leader down in mexico...

What jackass is just running down the list voting against everyone else's favorite shows? WTF is the point of that?

There is no point. Alas, they do it anyway.

I can almost sympathize in the case of Hee Haw. :P

Or the ASIP episode where the gang decided on a "no rules" bar and the McPoyles showed up. Eventually, Charlie got stabbed with a fork and the McPoyles made out with their own sister.

And another, where the McPoyles took over the bar at shotgun-point. Good stuff, whenever the McPoyles show up.

Another gem: Dee and Charlie become urban vigilantes.

Unfortunately, the actually do not write them like that any more. Lately, it's like they're only going through the paces because they got a contract for more seasons.

Remember Frank running a Vietnamese poker game in the basement, where guys are betting their fingers? Working up to "Deer Hunter" style Russian roulette? Good times, good times!
