Oh, Sports Night is streaming. Just bought the 2 seasons in SD. Better than nothing. Can’t wait to revisit.

Seinfeld by far. I watched most of the episodes when they originally aired, watched them again and again in syndication (and caught up on the ones I originally missed), bought all the seasons on DVD and re-watched them, and now watch the show on Netflix. I've lost count of the total times, I'm sure I've watched some of the better episodes at least a couple dozen times. Most watched after that is probably Community and Always Sunny.

Always Sunny? With all those seasons? How long does that take you?

Always Sunny has short-ish seasons, not 22 - 26 episode ones. There's only about 160 episodes.

I just rewatched Boston Legal again, I'm including the final season of The Practice in that. That's probably my most rewatched.

Twin Peaks. I recorded VHS copies as they aired and watched them every October. Of course I would rebuy each new format release.
Fringe would be second with Grimm and Chuck up next.

Edited my post to add Quantum Leap after ViewAskewbian mentioned it. Original run, VHS, DVD, and BD.

Another four timer that will likely join the 5x club is Entourage. Such an easy show to binge. It's aged well and is super re-watchable.

Back in the day I would watch all the original airs and the repeats before the era of DVDs and DVRs.

I liked to hear all the music again during the repeats.

Then I watched the full series again when it came out on DVD and Blu-ray.

Star Trek (The Original Series). First TV show I ever bought on VHS and I think it was like $24.95 per tape plus shipping and each one had 2 episodes. So, including the pilot, that was 40 tapes.. so it was like >$1000 for the whole series. Ourch.

You can buy the whole thing today for about $30 on eBay (Not sure why anyone would want or need vhs anymore). But I used to watch them over and over because I did enter the convention trivia contests and stuff. I'd say I've watched each episode at least maybe 25-30 times. Some probably over 100 times.

I've been watching firefly once a year ever since the DVD was first released, and a few times I've watched it multiple times a year so that it for me

Re: Which seriesí have you watched the most times?

Star Trek - The Next Generation has to be one of my most watched shows. Since this was the late eighties and nineties there were limited shows to watch and kind of had to watch a lot of reruns or have nothing to watch. This really never happens today as the backlog is huge. However, I still go back to TNG here and there.

I don't watch them back to back in epic binges, it's just that over the course of the last 15 years or so, I've watched most of the episodes a bunch of times (some more than others, but I've seen them all multiple times, some episodes maybe ten times or more).

.
That helps too, the majority of seasons are only 10 episodes long.

Buffy and Angel 5 to 6 times at least, - i don't tend to rewatch a lot of complete series runs again - so the next closest are probably Friends and Scrubs 2-3 times.

Re: Which seriesí have you watched the most times?

I haven't re-watched a series in a long time; it seems like there's always something I haven't gotten around to watching. However, I'm an old man and I was around when there were five channels and no VHS. I watched pretty much whatever was offered by the local stations. I watched most of the "classic" sitcoms like "The Dick Van Dyke Show" or "The Odd Couple" over and over. Eventually the local PBS station offered "Hill Street Blues" and "St. Elsewhere" and I watched those again all the way through.

Simpsons and Seinfeld are far beyond anything else, then Buffy.

Well probably The Brady Bunch, Gilligan's Island, and The Flintstones, because those were on regular rotation on after-school TV when I was a kid.

As an adult, I know I've given the entire run of Hill Street Blues a beginning-to-end watch at least 3-4 times.

^Yeah, I didn't count a bunch of stuff, like that, because I have no idea how many times I watched them.

I'm just looking at series where I watched them end to end.

Ever watch a show over and over on TV, believing you'd seen them all, then one pops up you never saw before. "Wow! I've never seen this one!"

Re: Which seriesí have you watched the most times?

I know it isn't what was asked, but it is difficult because later seasons are too new.

Game of Thrones - Season 1 approx 8 times with some seasons as few as 4.
Friday Night Lights - 5
The Expanse - 4 with the last once.
Deadwood, Downton Abbey, Chuck, Black Sails - 3
Many more 2 twice

Chuck and Agents of Shield are both highly re-watchable.
