    As the decade comes to a close, how would you rank this show amongst the top shows of the past 10 years? I've seen it rate as high as 5th or 6th in some partially official rankings. I think if those b*stards at Fox had realized that, they would've thought twice before cancelling it to free up a slot for some other show that nobody remembers.

    AD is definatley a top 3 show of the decade for me, if not #1.

    I have watched every episode for the first time ever in the last 10 days (same thing I did with the first three seasons of How I Met Your Mother) and has become part of my TOP 5 SHOWS EVER! I can't believe I have never watched this show before! was this shown much here in UK?

    Why do people think this show is so great? I rented the first season a while back and watched most of it and found it to be totally not funny and actually boring. I gave the show a chance by watching almost an entire season...and nothing. Sorry people.

    If we are talking among Network programs I would probably rank it no lower than 4 or 5. It would be a little lower if we throw it in among Cable shows, but not by much.

    That's OK, they're working on a cure for that as we speak

    it's definitely my no. 1 comedy show of all time. i've rewatched the show so many times & still find hilarious bits i've missed. things from a simple one liner to a clever plot device or a subtle piece of word play. for example gob's loose seal (which bites off busters hand) loose seal = lucille. simple but effective & very smart. i really want to see the film. god knows if it'll ever see the light of day.
