- Sanctuary
- Wiro Sableng
- Castle
- Panji Manusia Millennium (Panji the Millennium Man)
- Jin & Jun (Genie & Jun), the quote from it opening song ("I AM A GENIE, FROM THE MIDDLE EAST *AHAHAHA*!") is still my favorite way of shutting people up, just above "I was frozen today!")

My revised list, since I left out one important show somehow:

Monty Python's Flying Circus
Gilmore Girls
Twilight Zone
Family Guy
Star Trek (original and TNG).
Young Ones

I find it hard to believe only one other person on this forum liked the Gilmore Girls. Philistines.

Does that show have the chick that was ********* Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa? Philistine? How'd you know I was from Philadelphia?


My favorites are:

Game of Thrones: (Oh yes, i've read all the books. Can't wait to see how they realize the 3rd, 4th and 5th :D)

Chuck: (Mainly because I'm a nerd and I like this kind of stuff)

Supernatural: (Grew up with this one. I love it somehow)

Boardwalk Empire: (Oh yeah Steve Buscemi you bitch)

Mad Men: (Extremely well written though)

The Walking Dead (I'm a fan of the comic books, but I like this show as well. Nicely done.)

White Collar (One of my biggest all time favorites because none of the shows mentioned above(except GoT) made me feel so good while watching it. Enjoyed every episode)

Arrested Development (Holy shit this ones awesome.)

Suits (Also really well written!)

Spaced (Funny as hell!)

And I'm also looking forward to the upcoming show "House of Cards". Looks like the next BIG thing ;D


The Walking Dead
Red Dwarf
Mock the Week

...I don't really watch TV anymore. Most of my time is spent either drawing, roleplaying on deviantART or doing the dreaded homework for A-Levels. And whatever I do watch I don't really watch properly because I stick it on in the background


In no order...

Star Trek (OS and TNG)
Battlestar Galactica (2000s version, minus the last episode)
Lost (another awesome show with a terrible ending)
The Big Bang Theory
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Batman the Animated Series (the 90s one)
Saturday Night Live

I just picked up the discs for Game of Thrones. The books rank highly on my list of favorite things, and the first few episodes haven't disappointed me. I have yet to see all of it though, so I can't really say it's my favorite yet.

I loved Are You Afraid of the Dark as a kid, but I haven't seen it since then. I don't know if it would still rank.
Top Ten for me:
1-Game of Thrones (Amazing, but as usual, the books are so much better)
2-The Walking Dead (Again, Graphic Novels just kick so much ass that the TV show doesn't compare)
3-Falling Skies (I've heard people complain about it's writing, but I believe it's glorious)
4-Merlin (The BBC series, the last series was spectacular, especially Bradley James as Arthur)
5-Grimm (A great and gruesome twist on The Brothers Grimm's fairy tales)
6-Breaking Bad (Because Bryan Cranston)
7-Arrow (Cause I'm a sucker for a super-hero)
8-Defiance (Futuristic Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi series. Need more be said?)
9-Doctor Who (Christopher Eccelson and David Tennat ((Matt Smith was kinna crap)))
10-Torchwood (First 2 Seasons where amazing, and I felt it slowly dropped after that.)

I still haven't seen Bad Santa!

But they recently put all of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I've been rewatching it, and the show is still funny, so all I have to say is....

I'm not sure about my all time top 10, but here's a top 5 of stuff that's on now:

* Boardwalk Empire
* Chicago PD
* Legends
* Resurrection
* Persons of Interest

For stuff that's not on right now…

* GoT
* Sopranos

These and Boardwalk Empire are the only HBO series that I followed for every season. I think it's safe to assume I'll stick with GoT to the end. Sopranos was good, though I thought seasons 1 & 2 were the best overall. The other seasons had their moments. Love or hate it, the black screen was talked about a lot.

* The Twilight Zone
* The Three Stooges

These may be best left as fond memories, but I enjoyed these b/w shows as a kid, as a teen… and as an old kid (20s).

Aw, rats. Only nine. So one more show. Um…

* The Dukes of Hazzard

What? I was six once. I recently saw a commercial with John Schneider and Tom Wopat driving the General Lee up ramps, through barns and dealership show rooms. I can't deny it. I still get a kick out of seeing a car fly through a wall or window.

KITT: ​What about me? Did I not entertain you by doing what other cars cannot?

Honestly, Kitt, I forgot what you did. I just remember your voice. And the yellow light that went back and forth when you talked.

KITT: My light was red, Sidekick.

Right. Your evil twin had the yellow light.

KITT: You confused me with my evil twin. Yet, my programming does not allow me to run you down in the parking lot for making such an error.

Yeah, I know how you feel. I mean, except for the part where you want to run me down in the… uh… is there a specific parking lot you have in mind?


Game of Thrones
Tim and Eric
South Park
Boardwalk Empire
Get A Life
Star Trek : the Next Generation
Married With Children
Simpsons (the older ones)
any show with Simon Cowell

(No particular order, but I think South Park is number one)


My "all time" favourites tend to change quite a lot, but I will do my best.

I won't even attempt any kind of order.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Da Vinci's Demons
Battlestar Galactica
How I Met Your Mother

It was really hard not to include Elementary, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, and Sons of Anarchy.


I don't think I've ever done this...

1. Star Trek: Enterprise
2. Black Books
3. Farscape
4. The IT Crowd
5. Blackadder
6. Sherlock
7. Prison Break
8. The Pretender
9. Deadwood
10. Quantum Leap

It was so hard to narrow down the British comedies, and British TV in general, so an honorable mention goes to Only Fools and Horses, Fawlty Towers, The Mighty Boosh (nearly forgot this one), Miranda, Spaced, Red Dwarf, Misfits, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Bottom, The Young Ones, Absolutely Fabulous, and my favourite childhood animes, Digimon and Cardcaptor Sakura... and Avatar: The Last Airbender... yeah, this was tough.
