The Top Ten

1
Lost
Lost is one of the Best shows that will ever be on T.V.. Great actors, deep plot always keeps you hooked. Variety of generes that keep the show great. There is no way you can't like lost.
the best show of the decade. full of mysteries. I was not excpecting that finale. awesome!
Be it drama, comedy, adventure, horror, science fiction, romance... Dude, Lost has it all

2House
An entertaining series with a genius doctor handelling life an death situations in his "own way" with late briliant theories

MatrixGuy

Every single other top 10 llist in this place are crab, but this is the only list with a decent numb 1 pick
An original, funny, dramatic and addictive show, if you haven't watch already, DO IT!

3Supernatural
It's my favorite show. Watched it from the first episode. No other show makes me sad, happy, scream & be sometimes grossed out.
Very addictive T.V. series!. Funny horror and action. This should be number 1{way better than lost! }
Exciting plots, brilliant character development and truly emotional scripts with a phenomenal cast - what's not to like?

424
This is action and suspense at it's very best on T.V.. Jack Bauer kicks major ass, no one can ever beat him, old school action, best main character on a T.V. show ever, suspense is golden, each character, even some you expect to be generic are all diverse, unique and are always tangled or involved in the plot.

5The Wire
Remember when T.V. was great? The Wire (absolute top), Dead Like Me... Deadwood... Six Feet Under... What other series -there were so many creative absorbing drama and humor too in the early 2000's
What's on now? Mostly trash. Thank god for PBS

6Dexter

7Six Feet Under

8The Office

9Arrested Development
This is the most clever show in the history of existence. You can watch one episode five times and there's still things you would've missed.
Arrested Development is by far the funniest show of the decade. It's a shame it got cancelled. How is it number 22?

10Top Gear (U.K.)
Who needs a would be drama from some hack called Abrams when you can have a factual entertainment show called Top Gear.
Jeremy, James and Richard have made amphibious cars, people carriers, Reliant Robin Space shuttles, rally cars, cheap police cars, VW Scirocco ads, caravan conkers, caravan trains and mobility scooters.

And you guys think that Lost is better than Top Gear?
Unlike Lost, Top Gear is still going strong since it's 2002 inception.

The Contenders

11Prison Break
One of the best shows ever made. It's worth watching.

12Curb Your Enthusiasm

13Mad Men

14Smallville

15Doctor Who

16Criminal Minds

17Pointless
Hosted by Alexander Armstrong assisted by by his "Pointless Friend" Richard Osman This was a massive U-Turn for the BBC when this gentle quiz replaced The Weakest Link of all things.
The quiz show where the obscure answers are the best answers.
Amazing show, need to watch it every day.

Flobbies


18One Tree Hill

19True Blood
TRUE BLOOD SHOULD NOT BE AT THE BOTTOM IT WAS THE BEST T.V. SHOW ABOUT VAMPIRES EVER EVEN BEFORE BUFFY AND VAMPIRE DIARIES. TOTALLY SHOWS HOW BAD YOU GUYS DON'T KNOW YOUR T.V. ALSO LOST WAS NOT THAT GOOD SO... SOMEBODY NEEDS TO EDIT THIS LIST AND MOVE TRUE BLOOD TO LIKE 5 AT LEAST.

20Parks and Recreation
This show makes me laugh til I cry sometimes. Amy poehler is AMAZING

21Heroes
A promising show but something is missing from it, anyway it's a series that worth's watching...
