    Many great nominees. I often complain about the dearth of quality on television, but there are plenty of outstanding shows if you’re willing to look for them.

    THE WIRE is the densest and most gripping drama to hit television…. ever. There’s no qualifiers. It’s the most complete drama I can even think of, trumping even THE SOPRANOS.

    As for the best comedy, how can you even choose with that many good options in that category? They’re all fantastic (well, I don’t know about UGLY BETTY because I haven’t seen it yet). I would have to go with THE OFFICE, however, because it’s a personal favorite of mine.

    I wholeheartedly agree D. Peace. When I hear or read about people complaining about the lack of quality television, I’m shocked. How can anyone say that?

    There is so much quality entertainment out there, and with the extensive lineup of television networks, there is something for everyone.
