  1. Star Trek Deep Space Nine
    Favourite Episode: "In The Pale Moonlight" Sisko Enlist's Garak's help in bringing the Romulans into the Dominion War, but as his father once warned him - 'The road to hell is paved with good intentions'. First class episode, directed by Avery Brooks.
  2. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
    Favourite Episode: "Becoming - Part II" This is the second season finale where Buffy is forced to kill Angel, this is the first episode I ever saw and I've been hooked ever since.
  3. Law & Order SVU
    Favourite Episode: "Sick" This was the episode last year which was almost a word for word retelling of the Michael Jackson situation, often when a show is "Ripped From the Headlines" they are American headlines so living in Australia you don't get the references - there was no such trouble here, and they left it open so that once further things develop in Jackson's case they'll bring this Toy Magnate back.
  4. Law & Order Criminal Intent
    Favourite Episode: "Monster" Always a good show this episode featured a killer who had done his time was now under suspicion for murdering his mother, the case very quickly gets intertwined with another old rape case which was thought to have been solved.
  5. Quincy ME
    Favourite Episode: Not one in particular, but practically any episode you watch will have Astin and that slack cop calling it an open and shut case and then whining that Quincy chooses to probe the matter further, by the halfway point Quincy would discover that the cause of the death is related to some important issue, Airplane Safety, Vigilantism, Spouse Abuse, Punk Music (Never Smoking!) and would then proceed on a massive tirade against corporations, government or anyone in power within a 50 mile radius! All while never showing his top teeth, they don't make em like this anymore.
  6. Angel
    Favourite Episode: "Peace Out" this was the second last episode of season 4 and the culmination of a complex story line involving a creature (Jasmine) who had inspired world peace and harmony by controlling the free will of people within her grasp (which was quite substantial thanks to television) only when someone came into contact with the creature's blood would they see her true face (quite grotesque) and realise that all of LA (and soon the world) was being brainwashed, Jasmine was also feeding on several Humans per hour. Finally the whole gang had managed to break free of her hold and they discover a way to break her hypnotic hold, one they do there is rioting and murder in the streets, humanity has won back their self-determination but the result was chaos. Angel and his brood are descended upon by Lyla, (now dead) representing Wolfram & Hart (the evil Law Firm they have fought for years) congradulating them on Preventing World Peace and giving them the reins at Wolfram & Hart thus providing the keys to the kingdom they had sought to overthrow. A rewarding finish to an involving story which ended up opening a whole new can of worms.
  7. CSI Miami (It's sort of so bad it's good, an over the top series)
    Favourite Episode: Every episode gets more outrageous than the last, seemingly impossible coincidences occur every other second. All the while Caruso drives every scene Captain Kirk Style, it's brilliant campy television, not the self important and long winded CSI but this Miami spin off is plain old mindless entertainment. No Particular episode stands out but every episode starts with "H" adjusting his glasses, he makes a grand pronouncement then BAM Opening Credits. Champagne Television folks
  8. Star Trek The Next Generation
    Favourite Episode: "Tapestry" It's a wonderful life as Picard finds himself dead with the omnipotent Q in the role of God, prepared to give Picard that chance to change his one major regret, starting a bar fight which ended up in an artificial heart transplant which ended up contributing to his death. He makes the change and with the benfit of hindsight stops the fight, a decision he will come to regret.
  9. Quantum Leap
    Favourite Episode: The Finale "Mirror Image" was the saddest final episode in the history of television.
  10. NYPD Blue (Right up until when Bobby Simone died at which point it JTS)
    Favourite Episode: Bobby Simone's death was the high watermark on how to write a character out of a show.

Not in any particular order:

The West Wing
The Wire
Star Trek: DS9
Law and Order
The Shield
Hill St. Blues
Magnum P.I.
The Rockford Files
The Paper Chase

There are some others that could be on this list (depending on my mood ) but this is a good beginning.

You really rank Roswell higher then Angel & Charmed? I only saw the first 8 episodes, but it didn't make much of an impression on me. It wasen't bad, but meh. (it's ranked #4 on my list because I don't watch many dramas at all) So does it get better later in S1 as well as 2 & 3? (I also find many of the characters annoying; Isabelle, Liz, Maria, the sheriff's son, and the Evans guy)

The theme song is definetly one of the best ever though!!!
