The best TV show ever is...
I wondered what I would consider the best TV show ever, and I found I was unable to come up with a single winner. I've still got a fondness for 1970's cop shows like Staskey and Hutch (for sheer entertainment value), Kojak (for everything about the show), Hill Street Blues (for its gritty realistic feel) and The Rockford Files (because it was mostly awesome). And of course there are many western shows that I think were excellent - Rawhide, Wagon Train, High Chaparral, Deadwood. And does Lonesome Dove, a mini-series, count?
There are also many comedies that would be in any top ten - Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Soap and current hit, The Big Bang Theory will likely feature on future lists.
So what is the best TV show ever?
