What do YOU think are the best dramas ever on TV?

By now, many of you know that I used to work at TV Guide and one of my best buds is still there. He recently rattled off the top 50 (one for every year of TV Guide’s existence) dramas of all time.

I won’t list them all here, but I will give you some of my top picks and I wonder what YOU would pick as your best dramas…all time. I suppose it depends on how old you are…but here are my top 10 in no particular order.

1. Hill Street Blues… a ground breaking cop series

2. The Sopranos

3. The Twilight Zone

4. Mad Men

5. The West Wing

6. ER (George Clooney started here…remember that?)

7. Columbo (R.I.P. Peter Falk)

8. CSI (spawned many similar shows)

9. Star Trek (nuff said)

10. Law & Order
