    None of the above

    Oz and Rome were probably my top twos...followed closely by Dallas :thumbup:

    Ever....ever is a long time, but I had to vote for The Sopranos as best ever TV drama. The Wire was also very good,while it lasted. Breaking Bad is good, but lacks a certain something. Mad Men is fun to watch, but is kind of,well, a collection of good actors saddled with predictable scripts. Lost? Are you kidding? Lost doesn't even belong on the long list of best dramas ever,let alone this short list. Several older TV dramas were better than Lost--Hill Street Blues, LA Law, etc.

    I've never seen Dallas, and never heard of Rome :\
    But I just DL a few episodes of Oz and will be giving that a shot, see if I like it.

    :lol: I have never seen Lost, but people seem to like it so I put it up there.

    Mad Men, I agree.. I have been watching it but just can't get into it. Its nice, but doesn't have any emotional interest for me the way Breaking Bad does.

    As for Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue, St Elsewhere, and all the classic dramas - I think they all deserve much respect for being (I think) trendsetters in their own way. I reckon we could even go back to older shows, like the Man from Uncle and the Avengers.

    I agree with you though, The Wire and The Sopranos are definitely way up there on the list.
