    The Wire placed #1 on three of the lists: 100 Greatest TV Shows, 10 Greatest Dramas, 10 Greatest Cult Classics.

    No arguments from me.

    I have never watched a single episode of any of those shows. I know people like them but they never really enter my mind as "best" of anything.

    Nice to see this criminally under-appreciated show get some love.

    Another criminally under-appreciated show in a similar vein: Episodes (Showtime).

    As usual, one or a few people's opinions of what is the best. Nice fodder for argument always, but obviously we all have different opinions. Of the top 10, four I either had no desire to watch or didn't like all that much, one I am too young to have seen (and I'm 53) and the others are maybe top 10. I'd say Sopranos, All In the Family and Seinfeld, of the shows I watch are worthy. MTM, I always felt was overrated, and while I like Mad Men, It wouldn't be in my top 10. Definitely top 50 though. Seriously, Buffy top 10? (*ducks*)

    Episodes is underrated. I rarely ever see anything written about it.

    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    Happy Days
    Magnum PI
    Three's Company
    6 Million Dollar Man
    I Dream of Jeannie
    MacGyver
    Gilligan's Island
    Fantasy Island
    The A-Team
    Dukes of Hazard
    Batman
    Miami Vice
    The Partridge Family
    Hawaii 5-O ('70s version)
    CHiPs
    Diff'rent Strokes
    The Facts of Life
    Hogans Heroes
    The Greatest American Hero
    Married With Children
    WKRP in Cinncinati

    "Best" is such a bad term. "Best" based on what criteria? For me Best = My favorites. Why would I ever put The Wire #1 if I watched it and didn't like it? But obviously the author loved that show.

    The absence of The Dick Van Dyke show is instant proof that these subjective lists are worthless.
