Desert Island Television

Rolling Stone (I think) used to have a feature called "desert island discs," in which people picked their top 5 or 10 albums of all time to be stranded with on a desert island (assuming, of course, some way to listen to them).

Tom McMahon asks a similar question: If you could only watch 5 TV shows for the rest of your life, which 5 would you choose?
His list:
The Twilight Zone
Alfred Hitchcock Presents
Police Squad! (in color)
The Simpsons

My list:
The West Wing
The Simpsons
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Sports Night (not many episodes, but they are SOOO good)

What would be on your list? Please share your choices in the comments.

I've watched and enjoyed so much (arguably too much) TV during my life that it's virtually impossible for me to compile such a list. But here is a tentative first draft:

Northern Exposure
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Kung Fu
St. Elsewhere
All in the Family
