What is your favorite series of all time?

Tough to come up with just one. Being something of a watch-aholic, I tend to watch a lot of series; to the point where I have to self-limit. Marvel's Agents of Shield was the victim of one such round of "No, No, I can't get involved in another series." Right now, I'd have to place "Madame Secretary" at the top of my list, which would also include series I've been following for a while, like "Blue Bloods," "Homeland," Amazon's "Bosch" series, and moving up the ladder, episode by episode, is Hulu's "Chance" with Hugh Laurie. I like my series to have some intellectual depth to them. Scripts that address contemporary issues in an enlightening sort of way. "West Wing" used to do that all the time, as did HBO's "The Newsroom." Having little patience with stories that are little more than glorified gossip, I do tend to gravitate towards entertainment choices that stimulate rather than just titillate the mind.

William Faulkner, accepting his Nobel Prize in 1950 encouraged young writers to "address the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing, because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat." He goes on to say that the young writer should "(leave) no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed--love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice. Until he does so, he labors under a curse. He writes not of love but of lust, of defeats in which nobody loses anything of value, and victories without hope and worst of all, without pity or compassion. His griefs grieve on no universal bones, leaving no scars. He writes not of the heart but of the glands."

Amen to that!

"NIGHT COURT". Although I have many favorite series Night Court to me is my all-time favorite. The setting was the night shift of a Manhattan municipal court and was presided over by a 30ish year old judge, Harold T. "Harry" Stone (played by Harry Anderson). The series was created by comedy writer Reinhold Weege. It ran from 1984 to 1992. I think Night Court had the most amazing cast. There was Harry Anderson, Markie Post, John Larroquette, Richard Moll, Marsha Warfield and Charles Robinson.
It was aired on Thursday nights, and I tried never to miss an episode. I also remember that there wasn't one episode I did not enjoy. I was always guaranteed a laugh.
As a footnote, about 10 years ago, I got to meet Harry Anderson at a magic show. Such a nice man, and couldn't believe that I was meeting my favorite actor from my favorite show.

I have a BUNCH but these are my all time - could watch them again and again - faviorates:

The Walking Dead - Honestly, this show has everything! It has action, a good story line that never feels redundant, characters that you can love and relate with, and frustrating yell at the TV moment. Did I mention zombies?

Dexter -- I loved this show. It was a great way to indulge my dark passenger! Sometimes it seemed a little like, okay really? Even though he is a "bad guy" you cannot help but to be on his side and justify his actions!

Orange is the new black -- I don't care who you are this show is FUNNY! You will get sucked in and find yourself wide awake at 3 am watching .... Just one more!

I like sitcoms a lot:

There is but one answer possible.

Is it hypocritical for a scientist to believe in god as there is no experiment or theory which can prove the existence of god?

No, I don't, and I say that as an atheist. Science is all about finding the most likely explanation to explain things. Not what we can prove or disprove. The scientific community is capable of accepting hypothesis that we know are
