Favorite comedy & drama of all-time?

Comedy:
Seinfeld

Drama:
The West Wing...this was a tough one. as much as i loved Breaking Bad and think it is deserving of a #1 spot, my tried and trusted drama for me has been TWW. i never thought i would love a show like that and i did and it was wonderful.

Comedy: Night Court

Comedy is easy, Cheers with Seinfeld hot on its heels.

Drama is much more difficult. 24, Breaking Bad, Fringe, X-Files, er, NYPD: Blue, Quantum Leap, Lost, Chuck, Twilight Zone, Veronica Mars and too early to put Game of Thrones in the mix. I can't choose between these shows!

Re: Favorite comedy & drama of all-time?

Comedy: Seinfeld

Drama: This is a tough one. The first few seasons of The Soprano's are as good as a Drama can be, but the last 2-3 were a total disappointment. Right now I would say Breaking Bad because it never dropped in quality, but I am midway through the 4th season of Mad Men, and if the quality never drops, it could be my favorite.
