Default Top Ten Favourite TV shows?

Ok, so what are everyone's all time favourite television series? Sometimes you have so many it's hard to work out but we all have a list. Comfort TV, exciting TV etc so I'll start off.

I made one concession here - when it comes to franchise series (Trek etc) you can choose all Trek series as one or specify an individual one if you wish. Any Tv show at all from history, no matter how long or how little it ran for is ok.

Mine are:

1 - Trek (all series)
2 - Battlestar Galactica (new version)
3 - Arrested Development
4 - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
5 - Angel
6 - Family Guy
7 - The Golden Girls
8 - Alias
9 - Frasier
10 - The X-Files

Hummm.. which series would I take time to watch, even if there were other things on that I might be interested in?

1. Firefly
2. The Prisoner
3. Trek (all of it)
4. Dr. Who (all of it)
5. Mythbusters
6. Cosmos
7. Torchwood
8. MST3K (Joel H. episodes)
9. The Universe
10. BSG (new series only)

Ones that almost make the grade: Buffy, UFO, Space 1999, Thunderbirds, Lost in Space (first season only) Farscape, The Invaders, The Tomorrow People, The original "Quatermass" serials, The Avengers, Space Academy, Ark II, Land of the Lost...

Series that I wish had made it past the pilot stage: Spectre, Genisis II, Questor, Plymouth, and I really wish The Starlost series had fulfilled even 1/10th of the promise that Harlan Ellison's original idea gave.
