Buffy
Lost
The Office (US)
Oz
Battlestar Galactica (New Version)
Big Brother
Star Trek DS9
Sopranos
Six Feet Under
The Shield

I wanted to put Dexter and Eastbound & Down in there but they just missed the list. If they get a few more seasons in them I'm sure they will overtake something.

Current list, but I guess it fits "All time" as well:

Numbered but not ranked:

1. Lost
2. Damages
3. Cowboy Bebop (Anime)
4. Serial Experiments Lain (Anime)
5. Arrested Development
6. 30 Rock
7. The Simpsons
8. Spaced (UK)
9. VR.5
10. Top Gear (UK)

Runners up: The Tick (Live Action), The X-Files, Boston Legal, Family Guy, Ninja Warrior, Extreme Engineering, Rocko's Modern Life (Was a favorite haven't seen in ages.), You Can't Do That On Television (Was a favorite haven't seen in ages.), Are You Afraid of the Dark? (Was a favorite haven't seen in ages.)

I really didn't watch a lot of TV shows in my teen years, picked it up again in the early 20s.

Perhaps make a deadline for entries on Sunday and kick off voting on Monday when people are usually around?

Okay, sounds good. I will close the selection thread at 5PM ET Sunday. I will then try to get the brackets done in time to post the first poll sometime around 5-6PM ET on Monday.
