    Forget what the Emmys say is the best TV. Or the Globes. Or the Peabodys. The greatest TV series of modern times is “South Park.” The many levels of its genius are staggering.

    “South Park” is a bold choice, but I’m quite tempted to call it a tie between HBO’s “Treme” and AMC’s “Breaking

    Bad”. Both series explore characters and themes that you don’t find anywhere else on television. “Treme” has a

    particularly unique pace. It’s not to everyone’s liking, but it’s a thing of true art.

    If we are talking about best show on the air now then it is Breaking Bad.  The writers have somehow created an atmosphere where anything can happen at any moment and still make sense in the overall story.  The amount of tension in every episode is insane.  On top of that, it has one of the best ensembles on television as Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul deserve all of the recognition they get.

     

    If we are talking about best show of modern times than it is Lost.  Lost is very similar to Breaking Bad in that it also created an atmosphere where anything can happen and still fit the context of the show.  I think it would be easy to claim that Lost is the most ambitious tv series ever and, in my opinion, it achieved most of what it set out to do.  Finally, Lost was able to create a large batch of memorable characters (Locke, Ben and Sawyer being the most memorbable of the bunch).

    “South Park” is, honestly, a great choice. It has some of the smartest writing on television, and possibly some of the greatest satire ever to grace the Tube. But my personal favorite is “Breaking Bad” — it is what all dramatic television should be. In equal doses tragic and hilarious, rather than place its characters into boxes and categories, it actually attempts to break them out of their own limitations. Look at Hank Schrader (Dean Norris)… at the start of the series, he was your typical beef-cake loud-mouth, and Norris your type-casted supporting player. But at the climax of the third season, Hank became, essentially, the hero of the show, and Norris proved, to many viewers’ surprise, that the man could act up a storm when given the right material.

    G’Day,

    about to start season 4 so my mind may be changed, but of shows that have not ended I’d have to say Mad Men. It is the yardstick that I measure current TV against.

    Well, right now, if we’re talking drama it’s “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” for me. If we’re talking comedy then it’s also a tie between “Community” and “Parks and Recreation”. Those four are my definitive top four by far.

    Nothing can beat The Sopranos, Arrested Development and The Wire. South Park over the last few years has

    turned into The Simpsons, it’s very poor now.

    I’m sorry, Tom, but I HIGHLY disagree with you. “South Park” peaked years ago. It certainly isn’t the best

    show on TV in my eyes.

     

    The best show on TV right now is Celebrity Apprentice.

    In my opinion, the greatest series currently on television is Men of a Certain Age.  The way they tell stories that are so true to real life, yet make them compelling is a truly wonderful accomplishment!

     

    I really wish this show was more on the Emmy radar!
