    Brian Blessed, Derek Jacobi, Patrick Stewart.

    When this show was on Dallas and Falcon Crest were king of the TV hill, and this blew them away and showed how it is done.

    I was able to watch it on the new VHS players in college in 1980. I enjoyed it greatly.

    I also read the books. They were pretty good too.

    And it really would be fun if Claudius actually did write his memoirs and managed to have them secure for 2000 years.

    of course, he wasn't as cool a guy as the TV show. According to Suetonius he was more of a sadistic freak than Nero. Just more competent and not as vain.

    For the medical category I'd have to go with St. Elsewhere...

    ... lot of topical inside jokes...

    ... had to live that era though.
    :cool:

    For medical shows? House wins hands down.

    For testosterone shoot 'em ups? Burn Notice. Not only is the show good, but you can pick up some really cool tips.

    For sci-fi? Old series called Firefly was my favorite, but now I really enjoy Eureka.

    Demons and angels? Supernatural.

    But, there's a new game show out that actually makes me want to watch them, and it's called It's Worth What? Kinda Antiques Roadshow meets The Price is Right.

    I don't like any of the shows any of y'all mentioned.
    Best TV Series EVER??......(notice the R at the end---what is it with people who say the word "ever" as "evah"??) ~LMAO~
    I can't think of any TV shows that I would list as the best ever.....I can't think of any that I just-absolutely-could-not-wait-till-it-came-on!
    But when I was a young girl, I enjoyed watching Starsky & Hutch.
    When my children were younger and we watched as a family, I liked American Gladiators...and then a few years back I did rather enjoy watching Fear Factor.
