I vote for "Rome". Though the series wasn't completely historically accurate, the sets were brilliant (grafitti and all) and created an atmosphere of the ancient and eternal city and all its sordid splendour.
I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Thank you Mr. Soprano for uttering two delectable words that I didn't even know existed until an Italian stranger pointed it on the rack hanging near my house.

I had never gotten hooked to any of the (pretty well done) HBO series until Sopranos.  Haven't been hooked since.  Although flight of the concords is pretty funny.

p.s. No "Oz"?

just kidding.

Curb your Enthusiasm

Larry David's : Nice house.
Susie: Yeah, come on. I'll give you a tour.
Larry: Naw, it's ok.
Susie: No, come on.
Larry: No, it's ok. I...I get it.
Susie: (repeats Larry Davids) You get it?
Larry: Yeah, it's a house. It's new. I get it. It's nice.
Susie: You get it?!?! Ok, you know what? Get the f--- out of my house, Larry.

How could I forget Entourage and Curb your enthusiasim?! Sorry guys. Two excellent shows.

I love how Johnny Drama calls everyone "bro". I think Kevin Dillon pretty much plays a character like himself.

I've never seen it. I voted for Six Feet Under--especially the first couple of seasons.
