    Well, since the thread has been bumped, and I missed it the first time, I'll play.

    No list of "Best one-season shows" is complete without The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. -- it was on the top of TVShowsonDVD.com's list of "Most Requested Unreleased Shows" for years.

    That was my reaction as well. That might be the worst season of TWD.

    I so totally agree.

    BTW, I do not know if it is acceptable to visit an old thread and quote folks from years' past, but the comment upthread that Seinfeld's first season would never get them a second in today's climate is so very true.

    Season 1 - Hill Street Blues (Eight Emmys)
    Season 1 of Homeland wasn't bad, either
    Season 2 - West Wing
    Season 1 of Fargo

    I'm amazed at how many people are going with season 4 of The Wire.

    I'm pretty sure that was my least favorite.

    I must have missed something someplace. /headscratching

    I guess I'll need to rewatch it HD.

    To be fair, I'd put any season of the Wire above every other season of every other show.

    I'm not going to argue that point. Im just surprised how many selected season 4. I'd be okay with that if there was a better distribution of the other seasons in there, but there are not.

    I was torn between season 3 (Hampsterdam) and 4, but I think it was the focus on the middle school, the rise of Snoop, and the darkness at the end with Bodie and Bubbles that tipped this one to the top for me.

    I'd have to go with Green Acres season 2. Arnold Ziffel really brought home the bacon that year.

    Torchwood: Children of Earth (season 3) is a standout, for me.

    And Bruce Campbell said at a con here in Madison that it's the one show he's been a part of he wished he could continue.

    Man, so many shows mentioned here that I have loved. Not sure I can tell you which seasons though.

    Loved:

    Firefly
    The West Wing
    Homicide: Life On The Streets
    NYPD Blue
    Lost
    Shield
    Terriers
    Boomtown

    and many others.

    I have not watched The Wire or Torchwood, but I plan to.

    I am reading Alan Sepinwall's book The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers, and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever right now and he focuses on lots of the shows mentioned here.

    I will start the Wire as soon as I am caught up on Orphan Black in the next week or so.

    "Children of Earth" was brilliantly executed television from start to finish.
