You freely admit to liking My-So-Called Life but call Perry Mason and Columbo "guilty pleasures"?

Hard to argue against the Simpsons and Fawlty Towers and the like, but I'd throw "The Bob Newhart Show" in the mix.

In Landmark's defense (re: My So-Called Life), Claire Daines is an outstanding actress, and as near as I can tell, always has been. Ditto on Newhard.

I was just (half) kidding Landmark. We're really just naming some of our favorite shows. It would be difficult to include a show that only ran one season on a list of all time greats no matter the quality of the show. I always thought of My So Called Life as kind a punchline. I remember making remarks at the time about that "So Called TV Show". But I understand it had it's fans and recieved some critical acclaim.

Benny Hill was very funny.

I can't decide. Flights of the conchords sums up every satire show ever made recently. It's very very good. Lost is brilliant as is 24, Heroes, Prison Break and Supernatural is pretty good too. Cartoon Planet/Brak show, sponge bob squarepants are all amazing cartoons. Reno 911 is ace. TV has made some great great stuff recently. I watch lots of tv shows, all amazing in there own way. Can't choose.

We don't like taxi cause Kaufman hated it. Clifton more so.

Sorry to sound anal, but a few people mentioned there favorite as 'Monkey Magic', but the program was just called 'Monkey': http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_%28TV_series%29

For me, Flight of the Conchords or Hustle.

I'm the hiphopapotamus, my rhymes are bottomless, sounds a little preposterous, spewing from my esophagus.
But, my ryhmes are so potent that during this small segment, I've made all the women in the last three threads pregnant.

"Rocky And His Friends" aka "The Bullwinkle Show" aka "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends". From 1959-1974, hands down the best TV fare ever.
