1. MacGyver (1985)
Notes: Back in those days, MacGyver was just the best. The guy could built up anything and it still looked pretty realistic. His attitude was always impeccable (no guns, no drugs, no alcohol, no sex,... actually, 25 years later, the guy sounds more like a bore ! Anyway...). I loved this show so bad!

2. Twin Peaks (1990)
Notes: This show was just amazing and was actually very influential on shows that came afterwards. It was so ambitious and original at the same time. It is actually a wonder that they agreed to produce this. Imagine if Mulholland Drive became the TV show it was supposed to be....

3. Six Feet Under (2001)
Notes: This is the 1st HBO show I watched and you could see that the production value was much higher than on other networks. Great directing, great acting, spellbinding story,... I'm a huge fan.

4. The Simpsons (1989)
Notes: Easily, my favorite cartoon show. I have been watching it for years and I just love it. Funny and sharp at the same time.

5. The Twilight Zone (1959)
Notes: I was probably much too young when I watched this and I probably got a few nightmares but It was so fascinating, I could'nt help watching it. Each time, it was like being immersed in a fantastic world where everything could happen.... Just spellbinding.

6. Seinfeld (1989)
Notes: Honestly, I haven't watched it as often I wished but each time I had the chance to catch it, I couldn't stop laughing!

7. Married with Children (1987)
Notes: It was so funny... Very politically incorrect (refreshing...) and very well done.

8. V (1984)
Notes: Maybe today, it looks very cheesy but back then, it was a pretty cool show. I still remember the 1st day you saw the real face of the 'Visitors', I was rather impressed...

9. Oz (1997)
Notes: Again a HBO show. A very realistic prison drama (F*ck Prison Break...). It is quite chilling and pretty bleak but definitely worth it.

10. Wiseguy (1987)
Notes: Back in the 90's, I used to watch this show very often and I thought it was just spellbinding to watch. It was also my first contact with Kevin Spacey who was totally awesome as 'Mel Profitt'. It is definitely a very good and underrated cop movie.

11. 3rd Rock from the Sun (1996)
Notes: I have actually see it only a few times but I always laughed my ass off. The premise is pretty lame and it looks very stupid but the actors are great. It is just freaking hilarious.

12. Futurama (1999)
Notes: Not as good as the Simpsons but still pretty sharp and funny.

13. The Wonder Years (1988)
Notes: Maybe if I would watch it again now, I would find it corny but when I was a kid, I really loved this show. It just left so real compared to the other shows I was watching back then ad I could definitely relate to the characters.

14. That '70s Show (1998)
Notes: I thought this show was hilarious and I loved the settings and all the characters. I wish I had seen more episodes of this one.

15. Lost (2004)
Notes: The first season was just great. Maybe the best thing I have ever seen on TV. Great acting and directing. I loved the story about those people stuck on this island and the very nice flashback telling their backstories. I didn't mind much about the weird 'stuff' because I figured they will explain it later on. I was so wrong.... From the season 2, each episodes just kept bringing more and more weird 'stuff' and nothing was explained at all... Very frustrating and disappointing... I watched the whole show and I'm finally done with season 6 but starting from season 2, I did't really care anymore about the story or the characters... Too bad!

16. Heroes (2006)
Notes: Like Lost, the 1st season was very good. Good acting, directing, story. But at the end of the 1st season, you could feel they lost their edge and season 2 wasn't very compelling anymore.

17. The Sopranos (1999)
Notes: 3rd HBO show on this list. I was rather disappointed by the Sopranos. I was expecting the best show ever and it was indeed good but not that great. I have just seen the 1st season. Maybe I should try season 2 and give it another shot.

18. Weeds (2005)
Notes: I was rather underwhelmed by this show. I loved the premise and I think that Parker is a very good actress so I was really looking for watching this show but eventually it was nice but not more than that.

19. Cold Feet (1997)
Notes: A very nice English show with some very good acting and writing.

20. Quantum Leap (1989)
Notes: Looking back, the premise sounds so lame and silly but this show was really addictive. I watched it everyday with my brother and sister. Very entertaining.

21. 21 Jump Street (1987)
Notes: I was so young when I watched this, I can't remember it in details. I know it was pretty cool and I definitely enjoyed it.

22. Party of Five (1994)
Notes: I have no idea why but I was pretty addicted to his show. There were many upcoming actors in this one (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Neve Campbell, Matthew Fox,...)

23. ER (1994)
Notes: At the beginning, when George Clooney was around, I used to watch it a lot. But I kind of got fed up that the show was more about the doctors' love life than their work which I always found more interesting.

Very nice indeed.
Twin Peaks, The Simpsons and Six Feet Under all make my top 5 too. Along with Buffy and Lost.

Nice. About half of these I also enjoyed watching. Six Feet Under, Twilight Zone & Quantum Leap are all among my all-time favorites.
