The X-Files by a country mile.
Although, I wasn't a fan of the latter seasons, but still great television. The early seasons were just brilliant though - scary, thrilling and intriguing. And there's not many TV characters that are iconic as Fox and Scully .

For me, it's difficult to choose.

It's a fight between BSG, SG-1, and Buffy.

I guess it would be Star Trek: TNG and Babylon 5 - both awesome series.

I vaguely remember loving "The Champions " in the late 60's early 70's " Land of the Giants " and " Voyage to the bottom of the sea " Latterly it's been "Buffy "

Hard choice. BSG out of the recent ones, although I have every episode of both B5 and Firefly on DVD.

Obviously the Firefly box set didn't exactly cost the earth, good job with it being used up and all.

Sci-fi and fantasy have claimed the spot for my two favourite TV shows of all.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer comes first. The character writing was amazing, the Whedonism's were classic and the whole thing still stands up well today. Season 5 was probably my favourite, though there was much to commend across the whole seven series run.

The X Files comes a close second, with quite subtle but very deep characterisation. It was rich and diverse, also standing up well today. And as a break from the apparent majority... I love the later seasons too. In fact Season 9 is my second favourite after Season 6.

Honourable mentions to Doctor Who (and it's spin-offs), Primeval (and it's spin-off), Ghost Whisperer and Heroes.

*Gives you a fist bump*
The X-Files at its peak was just ridiculously good. Good choice, even if it's not your first choice .

1) My favOurite show has to be Battlestar Galactica - the ending was disappointing for me, but up to that point stellar TV.

2) Game of Thones - fantastic stuff!

3) X Files - loved this when it was on.

In no particular order....BSG, Dr Who, X-Files, SGU, GoT, DS-9, Firefly, Thunderbirds, Space 1999, Blakes 7 (last three were more for how they impacting on my imagination as a youngster), Being Human, Star Trek: TOS, Firefly, Buffy, The 4400......I'm sure I could think of more if I tried
