    Drama- Have to go with Lost. There are many Cable shows that are better scripted and have more flair, but that show had it all. We loved it.
    Comedy- Seinfeld. The chemistry of those four- so funny!

    Runners up: Comedy- the Middle. I can’t wait to get the boxed set and watch it from the beginning. That show never got old. Coach was one of my favorites back in the day.
    Drama: Weeds, Shameless, Dexter, Fargo. I loved a series called Red Oaks. There were only 3 seasons, but I recommend it- really good show. Goliath is a newer series that is really good, and the first season of Castle Rock was also good.

    Comedy - Friends
    Comedy, Honorable Mentions - The Office, Mad About You, and, more recently, The Middle

    Drama - LOST
    Drama, Honorable Mentions - 24, The 100

    Guilty Pleasure - Grey's Anatomy - I can't quit with this show.

    And I have to mention "Black Sails" which would actually probably be my very favorite show, but (1) there are just 4 seasons & (2), since it was a STARZ show, I don't think it has the universal appeal that a show like LOST has. However, I absolutely loved it & became slightly obsessed w/ it while DH & I were binge-watching it. "Black Sails" was so superbly acted, & many of the lines were down-right literary in their exquisite-ness & execution. Toby Stephens, as Captain Flint, was mesmerizing. And I am in love w/ the pirate Charles Vane.

    Shows like "LOST," "The 100," & "Black Sails" have so many different layers & nuances & interesting characters & "talking points"... Essays could be written on some of the characters & themes presented.

    I'm going to show my age, but I'm going with:

    Comedy: Beverly Hillbillies
    Drama: Little House on the Prairie (for nostalgic reasons)

    We recently binge watched Beverly Hillbillies & laughed just as hard as we did, when we originally watched it. We didn't see all of the original airings & loved the episodes that we hadn't seen.
