    That's tough because some of those are all said and done and some could go on forever. Assuming you get to watch whatever they come up with next, you have to consider Doctor Who (even if you're a non-Brit like myself).

    1) Star Wars
    2) Doctor Who
    3) Walking Dead

    Tough to leave Firefly/Serenity off the list for me, but someone has to lose :p.

    The problem is that no matter how much you like something, at some point, you will get bored of it. I stopped counting how many times I watched Star Wars: ANH after 843. So, more variety inside the categories would make for longer lasting entertainment. So, in this case, I will provide 4 list of 3. One pure based off the original post. Second off the original post based off my point. Third, my all time favorites- including ones not on this list, regardless of variety. And finally, a list based off really watching it forever- including ones not on this list.

    List 1
    Star Wars
    Firefly
    Lord of the Rings

    List 2
    Star Trek
    Doctor Who
    Game of Thrones

    List 3
    Star Wars
    Firefly
    Stargate

    List 4
    Stargate
    Star Trek
    Doctor Who

    Batman Animated Series

    Star Wars failed to make the list because not only have I seen it wayyy to many times, but I don't care for the newer ones AT ALL.
    Kinda the same with Indiana Jones.

    lol It would seem us UO folks run the gamut when it comes to what we watch. Always cool when a Dev chimes in too :D

    For those who ain't picked Game of Thrones, you should read the books and check out the show. It's about as addictive as Ultima ..... and no, that was not a paid advertisement ;)

    Would eventually get bored, but:

    1) Batman TAS
    2) Indiana Jones
    3) Current Marvel Movie Universe (they're not exactly current, but I'm assuming we get to leave the Toby McGuire/Kirsten Dunst Spider-Man movies off, since they were awful.)

    1- Trek. 90% for TNG.
    2- BTAS. Already have it all on dvd.
    3- bleh...either dislike or am ambivalent about any of the other choices. LotR I guess.

    List of choices needs more MST3K.

    Yeah, there are a number of other great series missing from this list...


    On another note. I have to confess that I have never seen Dr. Who. I am going to have to give it a try. To those who have seen it; am I best starting with the original series?

    There's the old series and the reboot (it's all on Netflix I think), and it's best to start, I'd say, at the beginning of the reboot, or maybe Season 5 of the reboot, in which they change doctors. I started with Season 5 of the reboot.

    There out there. Just have to add (replica) after the title. Or humor spelling

    Star Wars (replica) OR Star *****s
    Indianna Jones (replica) OR Indianna Jonesing


    Also the Riddick Series needs a mention. There is another movie coming. Throw an E between the Ds and you have your X rated spoof.
