Oh, good, I'm not the only one to immediately think Firefly and Babylon 5 (especially when watched on DVD in a short period of time). The first series of True Blood also kept me up way too late on work nights.

I couldn't get into Battlestar Galactica because I was too busy with grad school right when it came out, but I caught enough of it to feel compelled to buy the whole series. I'm planning a Battlestar Galactica marathon in the relatively near future and expect to add the show to my favorites list shortly therafter.

So far, I still have to give Bab 5 the Best Ever title. I loved the fact that a larger story was always in motion in the background, tying all the episodes together. The characters developed in amazing ways.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

I don't watch a lot of TV anymore, so most of my favorites have been off the air for a while.

Of all time? Probably Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I was a hardcore fan when it first came out, and even after it ended I still go back to my favorite episodes when I need inspiration or when I'm sick or when I am feeling down or when I'm cleaning the house.

After that, in no particular order:
The West Wing
Veronica Mars
Battlestar Gallactica

For me it's a tie between "My Family" & "Are You Being Served?". They are both great shows. I have never missed any episode of these two shows.
