Very tough friends ,Buffy ,Simpsons ,Babylon 5 and X-files

Going for a Star trek one and the Deep space Nine only because I made an effort to see each episode.

Overall, has to be Doctor Who, with honourable mentions for Star Trek, Blackadder,Fawlty Towers, Red Dwarf, and Life on Mars.
As a child however, it was Thunderbirds,or whatever Anderson puppet series was showing, and the very camp 1960's Batman series, which I took absolutely seriously..

If I have to pick a favourite it would be Get Smart. I can watch them anytime. I have never tired in over 40 years I remember watching them.

But my favourite TV drama would be 'This Life' from 1996:

For some reason, this just stuck a chord. My friends and I still talk about it 15 years on.

I must admit that a lot already mentioned come close – Monty Python, M*A*SH*, UFO, Captain Scarlett, Star Trek TOS are the runner ups. There may be some more recent stuff that will become favourites, but too early to tell.

skinkmasterreturns13 May 2012 5:02 a.m. PST

For consistant watching from age 5+ to today,a tie for original Star Trek and Lost in Space.If its on,I will watch it no matter how many hundred times I've seen them..

I would have to say Babylon 5. I am a sucker for Sci Fi. Although HBO's Rome series was absolutely great as well.

Personal logo Flashman14 Supporting Member of TMP22 May 2012 3:34 p.m. PST

I'd like to see I'm Alan Partridge on the list so I'll suggest it. And The Day Today (Chris Morris). And the new Sherlock which has just concluded its second season here in the US. Black Adder needs to be mentioned too if it wasn't already.
