I borrowed this one from my friend, author Jim Beard over on Facebook: Pondering my most-favorite TV series of all time and I sort of automatically came up with personal criteria for inclusion:

*No longer on the air, seen every episode, could watch any episode at any time, love them even for their faults*

So, using Jim's criteria, in no particular order, my Top Five TV Series of All Time (at least as of today):

M*A*S*H, Night Court, Magnum p.i., Star Trek, and Stargate (those last two I'll just lump all the series together though DS9 and Atlantis are my favorites of each). These are shows that, if I run across them, I will watch.

Honorable mention (since others are doing it) go to Leverage, Deadwood, The Newsroom, Justified, Longmire, Doctor Who,
Nash Bridges, Babylon 5, and Married... With Children. I can watch these shows (and have) over and over again.

What is your top 5? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.

Bobby: Not sure why Doctor Who gets an honorable mention since it's still in production, but my Top 5, in no particular order are: The Wild, Wild West; Mannix, Quantum Leap, Mission: Impossible (not a fan of the movies since the first one claimed Jim Phelps was a traitor), and Stingray (the Stephen J. Cannell version).
If we could post more than 5, mine would be a much longer list, but those were the first that came to mind.
