I LOVE THIS SHOW!!

That show is great. Top notch writing and acting. It might be too goofy at times for some but very rarely does a show do eight seasons and maintain the high level a quality that this one did.

I'm still missing the last couple seasons on DVD though. I'll have to rectify that.

They have a box set of all of the episodes(I Have it). There is also bonus content that comes with it.

Sopranos

Seinfeld

When these two were on they were REALLY on. Problem for me was that they both didn't sustain. At their best though, they're up there with my personal favorites.
I'm with you too. But they made the cut based on their catalog.
Sopranos was my #1 for years but BB, Dexter destroyed it from creativity standpoint
Yeah, there were tons of great Sopranos episodes. And it would be a top 10 show for me.

Thinking of Seinfeld, that'd probably be second behind Cheers in the sitcom department. That last season wasn't too satisfying though it wasn't bad either.

I've never seen BB or Dexter.

You like this show that much already? Yeah, it's pretty good, but top five after only two seasons?
Well, Freaks & Geeks (an awesome show) was already mentioned and it was only one season. Also, Firefly (never saw it) was mentioned and it too was just one season

This is hard!  

#1  of all time- Pete and Pete !!  You may have never heard of it.  It was a kid's show on Nickelodeon in the 90's, but it was so cleverly written and such a satire on middle class family life it was hilarious.  It was about 2 red headed brothers ( Pete and Pete, obv.) but would have guest stars like Iggy Pop, Michael Stipe and LL Cool J.  They were supposedly a normal family but everything was just a little off about themselves, their parents, their town; everything was kind of a wonderful alternate universe. My husband found a bootleg set of all 3 seasons somewhere and I love him for it.

Seinfeld
The Sopranos
Northern Exposure
Psych
Monk
Gilmore Girls
In Concert (where they would show a live concert from a college. It was one of the only times to see groups perform before MTV/internet.)

I forgot about Northern Exposure! Loved that show. Wish it had gone on a few more years.

I really loved the first season of Stranger Things too. If the second season delivers like that then it's a serious contender for me.

The Blacklist was here, but after last years lame plot twist b.s. fakeout...I'm done.
The Blacklist went off the rails during Season 2....for me...wait..another twist???

I won't spoil anything, but these shows try to get so cute with tricking the viewer...it gets tedious.  Spader is amazing as Red though...awesome in his role.  I'm still pissed enough to bail.

Same here.

If it doesn't...well the first season will forever rank as one of the greatest seasons of television ever.

I can't wait for the DVD.

Does netflix release their shows on DVD? Seems that would go against what they do with the whole streaming shows whenever you want to watch them.

That makes sense. The show has become huge for netflix. May as well try and cash in on it.

I just thought it would be kind of odd for netflix to do that since it might prevent people from joining them. But they're making so much money right now, it probably doesn't matter to them.

When these two were on they were REALLY on. Problem for me was that they both didn't sustain. At their best though, they're up there with my personal favorites.
The Sopranos was brilliant throughout its run. The only problem I see is the death of Nancy Marchand. That had to have changed the story direction for David Chase. And Steve Buscemi's casting seemed a  little opportunistic.

Seinfeld crashed after Larry David left. It became a totally different show with the characters becoming shallow, bitter, angry and despicable. Plus the plots revolved around totally unbelievable situations. Seinfeld at its peak was the opposite of all that.
