The West Wing used to be my favorite. I wonder if it would hold up if I watched it now.

Ive just started the box set (actual dvd set in a box, not streaming) and it does, topics are still fresh, the writing still heartwarming, funny and sad.
watching The Looming Tower and Jeff Daniels seems to be channeling his inner Will McAvoy i wonder if Aaron Sorkin is getting itchy fingers to write new episodes (to make up fpr series three of the newsroom at least ).

It's a freaking shame Black Mirror isn't on here. A freaking shame.

Anyway, for me it comes down to Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, maybe with The Office and Sherlock as honorable mentions. I don't know if I'm ready to choose (though tentatively, GoT has the fantasy edge).

1. Breaking Bad  Close#2. The Good Wife 3. The Wire or Orange is the New Black

It's a pretty good list but I expected better from Rotten Tomatoes, as there are some glaringly odd choices: series such as NCIS and Grey's Anatomy are on the list but not Six Feet Under or Dexter, for example? 'Good poll, though, and I love finding out about lists like this so I like that you made it into a poll. 

May I suggest a few small edits? "Out of these 35 best TV shows of the past 20 years, according to Rotten Tomatoes, which is you think is the best?"  (I just added "which" and commas after "years" and after "Tomatoes.")

Hi DC,

Following up, that "is" after "which" should really be a "do":

"which do you think is the best?"
