    Top TV Dramas

    I thought this would be a pretty cool thread with the new fall season coming up. The one drama I'm definitely going to give a shot is "Blue Bloods", though I don't have high hopes given its Friday slot. "Terriers" looks like it might be worth a shot as well.

    My all-time list:

    Battlestar Galactica
    Magnum P.I.
    The Shield (unrealistic, but fun)
    Rescue Me (a bit more realistic, lotsa fun)
    E.R. (first 9 seasons)
    Lost
    24 (first 3 seasons)
    Homicide: Life on the Street
    The X-Files

    Had potential but canceled:

    Life (solid writing, acting, plus Sarah Shahi and Christina Hendricks!)
    Invasion
    American Gothic (Gary Cole was really good in this)

    I definitely intend to add "Dexter" at some point. There really seems to be a dearth of quality dramas on TV, IMHO. I know there are some that I didn't name (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy), but I can't think of many more, especially on regular broadcast TV.

    Mine are The Wire, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men.

    I'm digging Rubicon so far.
