Best One season of any TV show

I pulled out my Seinfeld S4 DVD the other day and was looking at the list of episodes, and I realized this might have been the greatest season of TV I've ever watched.

What's your choice for greatest one season of any TV series?

S4 of the Wire. S3 of Homicide Life on the Street.

I loved the first season of LOST. Or was the second better?

Not sure I have an absolute favorite. Worthy contenders:

*Seinfeld season 7
*24 season 5
*Prison Break season 1
*a couple of the early seasons of ER (can't remember which ones; probably between 1 and 7) were fairly epic

First season of Homeland was A+ material.

It doesn't qualify in terms of a continuous storyline (a la The Wire, 24, Lost, etc.), but there is a great collection of episodes in Seasons 7 and 8 of The Simpsons.

Yeah, wasn't looking for a continuous story line. Just the quality of a season of episodes, so yours qualifies.

Seasons 4 and 5 of The Wire were the best, IMHO.

Season 1 of Fargo is becoming one of my all-time favorites.

First season of Alias would have to be way up on my list.

Heroes S1 and Homeland S1 were both great seasons, though both were marred by a less than stellar finale.

I prefer to exclude The Wire from this list, as every season of The Wire is better than every season of any other show, IMO.

S1 of The West Wing.

S1 of Veronica Mars.

One of the Simpsons seasons that featured Josh Weinstein and Bill Oakley as show runners.

Can't say the best of any show, there's just too much great television out there these days, but this first season of The Missing is certainly one of the best I've ever seen. As good as any film ever was.

@Steveknj, It's too hard to do best season. I looked at Wiki to remind me of S4. You are so right!!. It is killer funny!! Crazy Joe Davola, Bubble Boy, Cheever Letters, etc. We have the DVDs too. There's never been a funnier sitcom, not even close, imho.

No longer master or your domain.

FWIW, Seinfeld was once named the best show ever on TV by TV Guide. The only season I would call subpar was the first one. If it aired today it never would have survived past the first season.

FYI - Broadchurch was basically a one-shot miniseries so it doesn't really qualify.

I don't quite buy this. You could essentially eliminate any of the recent anthology series (Fargo, True Detective, American Horror Story) with this ruling. I say it counts.
