Your Ten Favorite TV Seasons

Spinning out of a thread elsewhere, list your ten favorite individual seasons of all time. This should not be easy! In the case of "half seasons" (i.e., The Sopranos - Season Six, Parts I & II), we will regard the entirety as comprising the season (ergo, you do not need to choose between which part to list). A little commentary on why you enjoyed each season would be nice, as it might spark more conversation than mere lists. Finally, please restrict your lists to just ten items; no "honorable mentions!"

Re: Your Ten Favorite TV Seasons

I like the West Wing seasons. I'd also throw in:

Friday Night Lights, Season 1 -- a perfect group of shows with a terrific finale. Could have been the whole series.

Heroes, Season 1 -- Season 1 held nothing back. Inventive and entertaining, unlike all the following seasons.

How can you even bring that season of the Sopranos up like that? It was the worst season ever for the show. How dare you?

I wouldn't pick it, either (although I did enjoy it). It was simply the handiest split-season I could think of that wasn't Sex and the City.

Re: Your Ten Favorite TV Seasons

I put this together pretty quickly. I'm sure if I gave myself more time to think about it, I would switch a couple of these out.

Not necessarily in any particular order:

Buffy Season 3
Angel Season 3
Arrested Development Season 1
Spaced Series 1
The Simpsons Season ? (I could pick many for this position, you can put your favorite here )
The Prisoner
Pushing Daisies Season 1
Dexter Season 1 (though this last season is very close)
This American Life (I think there was only one season)
Freaks and Geeks

Re: Your Ten Favorite TV Seasons

24 - Season 3 (Loved the Tony and Michelle plotline.)
FNL - Season 1 (Wow, came out of no where.)
Dawson's Creek - Season 1 (The Dawson and Joey scenes were written excellently this season.)
Freaks & Geeks - Season 1 (Great in every way.)
Three's Company - Season 6 (I'm a sucker for Priscilla Barnes.)
Jericho - Season 1 (Great and thought-provoking.)
Journeyman - Season 1 (A nice wrap-up finale.)
Seinfeld - One of the mid-seasons (Or maybe more. Just know I didn't care for the first couple or last.)
LOST - Season 4 (Didn't seem to be a filler episode at all.)
Arrested Development - Seasons 1-3 (No way to pick just one. It's the perfect TV show every season.)
