I won't repeat the bunch already here that I like, but for comedy I really like:
The League
Maron
Nurse Jackie (hate the name)
Monk
Californication

Oh man, I forgot about "The League." TP. Rafi is seriously one of the funniest characters ever. He's so random and out there.

another Buffy.  Nice.  Really is a great show.  Thought the interaction among the characters felt the most real of any teenage centric show ever.  They really did a good job capturing the high school aged human emotion and interaction.

Breaking Bad
Game of Thrones

X Files

I also liked Fargo quite a bit.  It's only been on for 1 season though so let's see how the next season  goes.

Buffy was a show that didn't take itself too seriously and had fun within the genre.  A sci-fi fantasy / teen show that was made by people who actually know and like those genres.  Talented cast, well written. 

Hard to have more fun watching a show like that over the course of seven full seasons.

"The Body" and "Once More With Feeling" are two classic episodes.  Great TV.

Can't forget "Hush" where there was no talking for almost the entire episode.  Might have been the best episode of any tv show I've ever seen.  Just so unique in the premise.

I think that HUSH was the scariest thing that was ever on tv.

There is only one possible answer, Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

You should start a thread for the 2nd Best TV show to have this debate.

How about "Under the Dome" ok, this show is really bad, but if you know that going in, and are really high, it's hilarious. Each episode gets crazier and crazier. Plot holes? Yeah, they got em. Most shows get to caught up in the characters and making sure they all have motivations for the things they do so it seems realistic. Under the Dome does not worry about this. It asks a simple question: What would happen if a dome came up around some town and then a bunch of other weird stuff happened?

I mostly remember "Hush" as when Willow and Tara first started getting to know one another.  Good episode though.

My favorite is without a doubt Prison Break ;D! (But then again I don't watch that many series on TV any more ::))
