Miami Vice Report Abuse
From the brilliant pilot to the parting of Crockett and Tubbs, this iconic cop show set the precedent for all that followed. Movie-quality production values, coupled with the brilliant range of Don Johnson's acting abilities and the engrossing stories provided top-notch entertainment for most of its 5 year run. It set the style for men's clothes [and beard stubble] in the background of fast-moving plots and romantic encounters.

Monk Report Abuse
This is the other show I still watch on TV. Monk is a lovable character and the stories are often funny and show the brilliance of the character. Occasionally a dud episode appears, but those are rare. Sad the series will be ending after this next season.

Doctor Who Report Abuse
I've loved Doctor Who since I discovered it in the 80s. I've seen all of the episodes that have been discovered. Sadly many of the first 2 doctors have lost forever. I was glad when the series was revived that the writers mostly remained true to the original series. This series has often had great story lines, with the occasional bad one and some poor special effects. It has certainly addressed relevant issues of the time.

Never has a show been so good at making fun of real people and having their own plot line at the same time

The ability to have their own plot line and make fun of the celebrities is what makes it better than Family Guy, who being less creative have to have random clips interrupt the episode.

This animated series (or rather several series) from Japan was produced in the 70s and early 80s. One of the best animated series ever and does not suffer from the darker anime that came later. This is a very up beat and lets save the world series where the characters, while human, are truly noble of spirit.
