I work with this kid who watches alot of TV, all he talks about is Breaking Bad. So I don't even need to watch it, I know what's going on in that show.LOL 
As for my vote... wait, I don't like any of these shows, so, no vote.

I've seen none of these, but then the only show that I watch that is currently in production is Doctor Who.

Dexter without one shadow of a doubt,followed closely by Breaking Bad.

I am an avid reader of The Walking Dead graphic novels and they really strayed from the story in the first two seasons so I lost interest in it.

I don't watch any of the above, but the one I'm most intrigued with is Homeland.

Breaking Bad, Doctor Who and especially Mad Men are the top three TV series currently in production I enjoy the most. I just might add Sherlock to this list, despite it's slightly different format.

I also follow with some interest Boss, Boardwalk Empire and Once Upon a Time.

From the list I also like Homeland (brilliant first season, the second not so much thus far) and Game of Thrones. Don't care much for the others, of which I only saw their first seasons.

First series of Homeland wad great. The Walking Dead is is also something I never miss. But my vote must go to Game Of Thrones which is brilliant.

I really liked "Homeland" a lot, but because I'm a Fantasy maniac, I voted for "Game of Thrones".
A really excellent show!
But at least half of the series in the poll are very very good!

I have never seen any of these, and the only reason I've heard of any of them is that I happened to watch parts of the Emmy (?) awards recently.

Some of them might be on HBO, which we don't get.

With all of the TV that I watch you managed to pick 7 shows that I have never watched. LOL  Based on what I know of the shows I think that either Fringe or Game of Thrones would probably be my favorite of these.

From those, "Breaking Bad", and it's not even close. Epic show.

If you like "Homeland" watch "24" too. It's from the same producers, and it's kinda similar, but 24 it's much more addictive IMO. And it has already finished so you don't have to wait for a new episode/season.

I really like Homeland a lot, the original Israeli version is also very good, quite different but also good. Anyway I most deffinitely am going with Breaking Bad, I rarely stumble across a show which all seasons are superb.

Cool, I hope you won't loose interest, the forth season is simply delicious. Can't wait for the final sixth season (only eight episodes I think...)

All are fantastic, though I'm not really that passionate about television to really follow a series and become immersed in the character and such - Just a causal thing really. The only show I've done that for is The Office! From what I've seen of these though, as follows:
1. Breaking Bad
2. Fringe
3. Game Of Thrones
4. Dexter
5. The Walking Dead
6. American Horror Story
7. Homeland - Never seen it.

None in the list presented...

 

I follow very few series (no time for that) and never on the tube...

 
Whenever I do... it's through renting the DVDs
 
Sons Of Anarchy (though there is simply too much going on, too much treachery as well)
Californication (that's my fave)
Weeds (it's gotten too silly of late)
 
And that's about it...
I followed Hung, but apprently it's over

I could never follow a show on television (commercials mess with my mind). 

The only televised program I watch is chronological Twilight Zone on Netflix. I've got a friend who likes Breaking Bad and I highly respect his input, so I'll probably try that one if I can find an extremely cheap means of seeing it sans commercials.

He also recommended to me Twin Peaks, which was apparently run by David Lynch. Luckily for me, Netflix has all of it. For some silly reason Netflix shows every season of the original Twilight Zone except the fourth.

My wife would vote for Game of Thrones (I haven't seen it yet), my brother would vote for Breaking Bad - but I have to go with The Walking Dead.

However, if you had included Lost and/or Battlestar Galactica, I'd have gone with one of those. (And if you included both of those, my head would have exploded Dead.)

I'm looking forward to watching the new critically acclaimed French zombie tv show Les revenants, which will be shown in England under the title The Returned. Americans will have to find... other ways... nudge nudge wink wink... to watch it... (After all, Americans don't want to watch shows in foreign languages like French and British English.)

Did anyone see that show The Fades? Axed last year after only one fantastic and much-loved season, this was a kind of ghost/zombie/(vampire?) film, in which ghosts attain human form by eating the flesh of the living, and continue to feast on the living. A curse on BBC Three for cancelling the show!!!!

I did a mini review of THE FADES on my site.
 
Ever seen THE SHADES (2011 UK)?
 
Here is my "review":
"
Six episode, afterlife-theme drama series starring Stephen Tompkinson & Dervia Kirwan, (both who had lead roles in the Irish series, Ballykissangel.)

Mark & Maeve never knew each other. They die on the same day and find themselves ghosts (although the word is never said) wandering the parks and streets of London.

Where this "ghost" story differs from others is that: 1/the British show that ABSOLUTELY no special effects are necessary to make an absorbing ghost story

2/the "ghosts" are seen by the Living as being everyday mortals EXCEPT BY THE DECEASED'S LOVED ONES/RELATIONS. Let me put this another way: the Dead are not allowed to communicate or show themselves to those they knew when they were alive, but they are corporeal to complete strangers. Also , the strangers forget the ghost immediately on being parted from its company.

Mark dies after routine surgery to his hernia. He leaves his wife, child and newly-born baby penniless. Since they cannot see or sense his spirit, but CAN see Maeve's (since she is not related), Mark uses Maeve as the go-between to try to help his widow wife out. BUT Maeve cannot tell the wife that she (Maeve) is dead or that her husband is always there at her side.(It is not explained in the series why this is so.)

Also, not explained, is the fact that of what has to be more than TWO people dying in the whole of London that day, Mark & Maeve are aware of no other "ghosts".

The answer is made cleverly subtle: you, the watcher, get the implication that these two mismatched souls cast together in this strange afterlife upon current-day London; are indeed not "ghosts" but powerless angels chained to present day Earth. As they struggle to come to terms with their own curious condition and to somehow aid their greiving relations/lovers, they stumble upon other mortals caught in their own personal tradgedies - and they try to help.

Touching , gentle series with the caring Tompkinson being perfectly cast."

Dexter's my favorite drama so there's my answer Cool

I also really like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.  And I've only seen a couple episodes of Homeland and American Horror Story but I liked what I saw.  And I haven't seen the others.

If Twin Peaks were on this list, I probably wouldn't be able to vote, but since it isn't, definitely Breaking Bad! Followed by Game of Thrones. (I should be done with the 1st Song of Ice And Fire [Game of Thrones] book within a couple hours which I also recommend.) i loved Dexter, seasons 1-4, but it went pretty downhill seasons 5-8. I do like the other shows as well, except Fringe since I don't really know it. I've only seen the one episode involving Twin Peaks, which was good.
