Seinfeld….until Michael Richards’ unpleasantness marred his character forever.

I was going to say The Simpons, so now that I’ve been robbed of my answer I’ll go with The Squidbillies!

the simple life is super addicting. I warned you.

Right now I’ll say The Wire. I am very impressed with the shows quality through five seasons now, and the last episode (59) is one of the best, if not the best one in the shows history. I am also a huge fan of Seinfeld.

@waterskier: It’s an English Show that aired between 1999 and 2001. Top class programming from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson). If you’ve seen Shaun of the Dead you’ll have come across all 3 of them before. All of the episodes are on youtube. Here’s the first episode. It was going to be re-made for American audiences but the re-make wasn’t good enough and there were various courtesies that were ignored by McG and the other producers leading to it’s demise pre-pick-up.

“Tim (Simon Pegg) is a twentysomething, underachieving comic book store (assistant) manager with a morbid fear of dogs and Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) is a would-be journalist who is yet to get an article printed.
To get their flat, they had to pose as a professional ‘yuppie’ couple and their landlady, Marsha (Julia Deakin), is still to realise their deceit.
Neighbour Brian (Mark Heap) is a conceptual artist and more than a bit… well, wierd.
Daisy’s best friend Twist occassionally pops in to their flat and is currently flirting with Brian.
Tim’s best friend Mike (Nick Frost) is an enthusiastic member of many outdoor activity organisations including the territorial army, although they will never make up for the disappointment of not being able to be in the “real army”.”

Lucky for you the Complete Series is coming out on DVD in the States with lots of extra features.
