G’Day, great topic – especially with “Mad Men” possibly claiming their fifth win this year. It will be no surprise that “West Wing” gets my vote: amazing cast, brillant writing and great technical aspects. Good stroytelling, issues and characters. But seriously of all the shows on the list I’ve seen the Emmys really have put together a respectable list of winners. “Mission: Impossible” has dated though, possibly the weakest of the bunch.


I voted for “Picket Fences.” I know this is an odd choice to some, but I feel like it was a very groundbreaking show and I respect that it tackeled social issues with a vengence. I also appreciate the quirkiness.

I voted for “The Sopranos” because it’s my favorite show ever, and for reasons I believe most can guess (fantastic writing, amazing sense of tone and atmosphere of its world, and excellent actors/characters), since this show has been constantly discussed and analysed – and extremely deserving of that. But part of me wishes I could vote for “Mission: Impossible” too. It really was a great show, and a huge influence on several great thrillers and spy stories on TV (like “Alias”, for example).


I voted for “The Sopranos” but I could have easily gone with “Mad Men” or “Hill Street Blues.” I must admit, though, that I haven’t seen much (if any) of the other shows except “West Wing,” “The Practice” and “Mission: Impossible.”
