Classic Star Trek, because it paved the way for the sci-fi genre on TV. Without the success of Trek, I don't think there would be many sci-fi shows as there are.

Star Trek: The Next Generation

Babylon 5

Forever Knight -- this was one of the best vampire shows ever! If you haven't seen it, it is currently running on the Sci-Fi channel @ 10 AM CST. It's similar to Angel, but was made in the 90's.

The X-Files

I don't watch much TV, and I'll avoid childhood favourites. I enjoy things that make me laugh, and travel.

Father Ted
Breaking Bad
I'm Alan Partridge
One of the travel series by either Michael Palin (Around the World in 80 Days, maybe) or Simon Reeve (Tropic of Capricorn, perhaps)
Taskmaster - maybe because it's my favourite thing on TV at the moment. They make comedians do ridiculous tasks, like "conceal a pineapple on your person":


I believe there's a US series starting soon.

Someone's showing their age :)
I haven't watched TV at all in recent years, apart from a few YouTube clips of Dr Who, and part of one episode of Game Of Thrones (which is rubbish BTW).
Plus the word "ever" means what it says.

I'll pick Downton Abbey first.

What wrong with Being Human, US version ? I like it better than the original UK one.:p

(I just wake up and prepare my coffee. Not ressurected yet. Le me drink my coffee first ! :LOL:)
