    Might just be nostalgia, because when it came out I watched it regularly with a particularly well-liked girlfriend. But I remember thinking it was witty. I don't watch much TV, so the ones I listed are ones that I did actually watch regularly, which meant I really liked them :)

    I meant no offense. It was all in good fun. In fact, I have a soft spot in my heart for Days of Our Lives. It reminds me of an old girlfriend I used to watch it with.

    No offense taken. I would have watched just about anything with this particular girlfriend. But I did enjoy the show and the banter, girlfriend or not :)

    I just did a google search on best dialogue in a TV show, and literally the first thing that popped up listed 1) Gilmore Girls; and 2) Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    The banter in Gilmore Girls was good. I like Buffy, Angel, and Firefly for precisely the same reason (among others).
     
  11. I never got into Buffy, but I watched the spin off Angel as if it were my religion. :p
    I to this day DVR the reruns of Gilmore Girls, and Mash I watch the later to relax and the other to study good dialogue structure. :D

    MASH definitely goes on the good dialogue list.

    I liked Angel, but I did like Buffy better. I'd never seen either one of them until a couple of years ago, on Netflix. As I say, I don't watch a lot of TV. I did watch Gilmore Girls when it was running.
     
  13. Mash is hard to beat it was and in many ways still is so far ahead of the times that it is hard to categorize.

    Buffy had some excellent writing. Firefly did too. Not just the dialog, though that was great.

    I'm not even sure I can make it to ten... don't watch much TV. Here goes:

    1. How I met your Mother
    2. Big Bang Theory
    3. Scrubs
    4. Wings
    5. Friends

    Um....

    6. old X-Men cartoon series
    7. old Batman cartoon series (with Mark Hamill as the voice of the Joker)

    Seriously running out of steam now...

    8. The Daily Show (never specified series!)
    9. The Colbert Report

    Alright, I can do this. C'mon now...

    10. Saturday Night Live!

    Finally thought of a tenth. Hey, maybe I bent some intentions, but these are all shows on TV. Above list is in the order of easiest to remember to least easy to remember...

    If you liked Angel, you'll like Buffy. I was surprised at getting addicted to it, but the twists were great. Watch it. And if you haven't seen Firefly, you'll want to see that too. :)

    Yes! Someone else on the forum knows what How I Met Your Mother is! I've never been able to get into Scrubs or Big Bang Theory, but I know a lot of people who love both of them.
     
  18. ROFLMBO, I did not watch because I enjoyed the show... In fact I thought it was kinda dull.

    However, David B is smokin'!

    The only reason I watched was to get my weekly dose of man meat.

    Come to think of it he's still a DOD

    Drat, I forgot Firefly! However, since I never actually watched it while it was on-air, I guess it's fitting that it's not on my list.
