Best to leave it that way John. Here. Remember, I warned you. :)

A very very close second to Star Trek. I can A/B from one show to the other easily and have a great day doing it.

The Immortal is great fun. It's not "good" but it's entertaining. Which is why I watch TV...

Great minds think alike. I'm curious about the Married with Children and Scrubs sets, which I don't have yet. Do they suffer from a lot of music replacement issues? I recall Scrubs used a lot of big pop hits.

Not in Top 10 placement order, but here are mine:

Barney Miller
The Bob Newhart Show
Burns & Allen
Get Smart
Mystery Science Theater 3000 (the Comedy Central / Sci-Fi Channel version)
Columbo
Dallas (original version)
Dark Shadows (original version)
In the Heat of the Night
Twilight Zone (original version)

Some shows have a particular season or era that I love, but the entire series isn’t enough to make my 10 faves. For example, I love the 1st 4 seasons of MASH (the Larry Gelbart era) but the rest I find occasionally good but with a lot more skippable than rewatchable episodes. Same with Sanford & Son - wonderful 1st 3 seasons; but with Season 4 when Redd Foxx returned from his strike, there were new writers and producers, and quality became much more hit or miss in my opinion. So it’s still high on my faves list, but not top 10.

Seem to always be in the top 10. Beyond that it gets too difficult. Doctor Who (1st three Doctors) is theoretically in there but I tend to replay them in memory more than actually watching them.

Top 11 of the last 11 years:

The Defenders
Coronet Blue
Barnaby Jones
State Trooper
Family
Shane
Bob Newhart Show
Lou Grant
Shannon
Saints and Sinners
N.Y.P.D.

Wow, some deep cuts here. Is that the '61 Shannon with George Nader or the '81 Shannon with Kevin Dobson?

Nader. I got a grey market set and found something about the nature of the show and Nader’s unflappable presence in the face of these insurance fraudsters strangely captivating…not to mention the car gadgets and the girls (not necessarily in that order)

I saw one episode on Youtube. It did seem like an interesting show - reminded me of the radio show Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, also about insurance investigations.
