    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?

    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

    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.

    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.
