"The Wire" is the greatest in my opinion. It's all subjective, of course.
The first season of the Walking Dead was great, the second season was forgettable, and the third season is better than the second but not as good as the first.
I've heard a lot of good things about walking dead but haven't started watching it yet. I do agree with those that love BB and SOA. I'm surprised no one has mentioned Weeds. I just finished season 2 and am hooked on it at the moment. Andy and Doug crack me up every show with something one of those idiots does.

Weeds falls off after season 3 or 4. And then takes a nose dive towards the very end.
My top 4 current series on TV in order:
2.) The Walking Dead
I was hoping I might be able to add The Following to this list, but its already getting predictable and I'm starting to lose interest.
Give me The League, Impractical Jokers, and Is Always Sunny as my favorite comedies on right now.
I enjoy the walking dead for sure. I even covered the theme song. I've never heard of a mid-season finale though, I must say.

I agree, only wish they had done more than 5 seasons. #2 Breaking Bad #3 The Walking Dead.
We watch it. Look forward to it every week.
"The Wire" had the best group of actors / actresses of any series ever, in my opinion. Casting is perfect....phenomenal story lines. Great, great show.
Walking Dead is a fascinating show. Survival, Apocolypse, Zombies, but more dangerous than zombies is other people.
Yeah I don't get how zombies are that dangerous. They're slow, they're stupid, they're not strong... The biggest thing is how slow they are, I just don't get how anyone gets caught.
For you gamers and Walking Dead fans you should check out DayZ. The standalone console version comes out sometime this year.
-Air Traffic Controller for the greatest Air Force in the world-
Weak episode IMO. Don't like Rick being this crazy and out of touch. He's becoming unlikable.
I also grow tired of the constant human v. human drama. With a world full of zombies, I think in reality people would stick together more and try to survive against the zombies. Instead, the last few remaining survivors seem hell bent on cutting off their nose to spite their face.
If that's what you find unrealistic about this show, we need to have a talk.
If you watch you would know.....zombies do not tire....people do. They just keep coming.
24 is running again without commercials on Direct 239 (I think that's right) with about 3-4 shows per week. They are in Day 1 now when David (Pres) is winning the primary. I've been watching MI5 on NC-ETV Saat nites at 11 for awhile now and the shows are excellent if you dont mind watching the Brit perspective. Like 24 they kill off your favorites kinda often
EDIT: Shoulda mentioned the show "13"...about a spy who lost his identity (ever heard of that one) but it is in second season and really good. On Direct 238 REELZ
What's the gist of the two shows yall are talking about and when/where? I know about Homeland but havent watched i yet.

First off, the graphic novels blow the show out of the water. Second, great show but no way best on television. And for the zombie haters, they are just a metaphor.
This is not The Syvelle Newton, just his number one fan!
Humans would kill each other to survive, no doubt about it. And I don't have a problem with the human v. human drama, but I think they take it too far.
Humans throughout history have cooperated when necessary for survival. The city-states of ancient Greece were constantly warring against each other until the Persians showed up in the east -- then they joined together to fight a greater enemy. I just think the show gives humans too little credit and assumes they would always fight and kill each other when there is a greater enemy in the zombies. I'm fine with bad guys (because that's real) but they take it too far and we see things such as zombie UFC and ridiculous characters like the Judge who kills national guard members who are trying to help.
I wouldn't think a zombie hater would watch the show.
And for what are they a metaphor?
Presumably, a zombie hater would not watch more than a few episodes.
At a closer look who is the real problem? Yes people are dying from zombie bites but Rick and co. did/do/have that under control. The jail is a safe haven, they survived for months out in the wilderness through the Winter. The real problem is humans brought on by chaos created through a power vacuum. So in regards to what the zombies represent? They represent a plague, an economic collapse, nuclear apocalypse, etc. They are now an indirect problem, no longer the root or source. I disagree with your idea of humans being civilized in the event of some sort of collapse. Just my opinion and something to think about.

Not really sure why we have to pick. We can watch them all. I enjoy Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, Spartacus, Homeland and Archer. Probably forgetting some too.
Fomerly known as Garnet&BlackAttack.
Where can I watch the first half of season 3?
Go Gamecocks !!!
