As the thread title suggests.

Mine has to be The Sopranos. It was so well written, the black humour was superb and it really was the thinking mans Mob TV show.

There have been some great drama shows in recent years but looking back few can compare with the twisted and innovative comedy plot in Soap. Used to get to stay up late to watch it :)

There's so many amazing shows to chose from. It's bloody hard to pick one, but I think I'd have to go with Oz.

Definitely Only Fools And Horses, followed by Chorlton and the Wheelies, followed by Trap Door

I'm sure some of you would really enjoy a holiday in Spain, Malaga for example where they have Only Fools playing 24 hours a day in the Bars.

Only one person saying Breaking Bad really?

Without a doubt the best ever. Sopranos was before Walter came along.

Close third just now Orange is the new black and Wentworth Prison

Breaking Bad is wonderful. Series 3 and 4 especially peaked IMO. Didn't enjoy the fifth as much ... much more dark and disturbing.

Most of the shows being offered up here are fairly recent. Does this mean shows are better now, our memories of other shows have faded or we are generally to young to be nominating classics across the genres like the Sweeney, Cheers, Hill Street Blues or Minder? Discuss ...

I think it depends how you're classifying "Best TV Show" Sway.

If people are thinking about shows they've enjoyed watching the most over time then I would imagine they are either going to be episodic comedy programmes, or a series with a gripping and enjoyable story arc over multiple series.

Whilst episodic comedy has been round for years - and means people will cite anything from Only Fools and Horses to The Fast Show, I would argue that storytelling series' have improved dramatically in the last 10-15 years as well as our access to them, which is why people will focus on shows like Breaking Bad, Sopranos, Game of Thrones etc as the best examples of those.

Just what I think anyway.
