"Everyone inside the circle is normal. Everyone outside the circle should be beaten, broken, and reset, so they can be brought inside the circle. Failing that, they should be institutionalized, or worse, pitied. Why would you feel sorry for someone who gets to opt out of the inane courteous formalities, which are utterly meaningless, insincere, and therefore degrading? Can you imagine how liberating it would be to live a life free of all the mind-numbing social niceties? I don't pity this kid. I envy him." Dr. Gregory House, speaking of a boy with autism, House M.D.

In no particular order:

Twilight Zone
Outer Limits
Babylon 5
Star Trek Voyager
The walking dead
Lost (although not equally impressed by all of it)
The returned
Terra Nova (which was also cancelled)
Invasion (the one season they made)
The first 3-4 seasons of the X-Files

Two and a half men
Friends
How I met your mother
The Big Bang Theory (even if it also annoys me)
Blackadder
Mr. Bean

I also like The Simpsons, South Park, Futurama and what I?ve seen of Family Guy, but I think they have much lower re-watch value than the sitcoms above.

Pokémon
TMNT TOS

The Sweeney
Bad Girls
UFO
Space 1999 (Series 1)
Knowing Me Knowing You (Alan Partridge). Also "I'm Alan Partridge", Series 1.
A Kind of Loving (mini series, 1982)

And an honourable mention must be made of Blake's Seven, a series so mind-bendingly dreadful that it was actually quite entertaining!
