What is the best season of a TV show you've ever seen?

I know, how askreddit of me.

Personally? Scripted, it has to be Season One of LOST - if you detach it from the rest of the show, it's still absolutely wonderful, with so many well placed twists and turns.

Season 1 of Lost, Season 1 of Heroes or Season 2 of Parks and Recreation for me.

I feel there's going to be a lot of "Season 1/2" in people's answers.

Blackadder Goes Forth was the first idea that came to mind. More recently, there's the fourth series of Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, both of which I think are the high points of those shows. I haven't seen The Wire yet, but the fourth series of that has already been quoted in this thread, and the most recent run of Bojack Horseman episodes were good too. This theme bodes well for the upcoming fourth series of Better Call Saul.

I'd also echo 24 S1, Lost S1, and Heroes S1.

Not mentioned so far, I'd say Arrow S2 and Flash S2

Boardwalk Empire season 3

Friends season 4

Parks & Recreation season 4

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3

Game of Thrones season 2

The Handmaid's Tale season 1

Community season 2

Atlanta season 2

A lot of recency bias, probably, and I'm probably not answering this correctly but who cares.

Avatar: The Last Airbender, Season 3 is a good shout as well.

The Wire season 4 is my drama answer, The Office (US) season 2 is my comedy answer.

Season Six of Deep Space Nine. It's 26 episodes so you do get some filler here and there but it includes maybe the best hour of science fiction ever (Far Beyond The Stars), one of the best episodes of Star Trek ever made (In The Pale Moonlight), and some other awesome moments (the opening Time To Stand/Rocks and Shoals two parter, Favor The Bold/Sacrifice Of Angels, and while it hasn't aged superwell, Waltz is still very good).

Seasons 1 of Westworld and Lost were both great, though sadly both shows either seem to be or definitively did crawl up their own ass as time went on.

Season 1 of That 70s Show is pretty well put together.

Season 4 of the Wire is the best shout. Breaking Bad season 5 is a good one as well. I'd also add Sons of Anarchy season 2, the season with the white supremacist/nazis plot.

Interesting to see the fifth series of Breaking Bad getting the nod. I really liked it, but I slightly preferred the one before.

Truthfully, Season 4 would be my number two answer. I believe Breaking Bad is the greatest TV show that has ever aired. I just think the bleakness and hopelessness of the characters is riveting TV. Up until the last season, there was this manic energy to each character. In season 5, you know the entire season that this is not ending well for these characters you have grown to care about. It's great. 

To piggyback on GoGo, in terms of a comedy I would have to say Girls Season 1. I am not a huge fan of the later seasons but I think the first season is such a great satire of being young and  privileged in the 21st century.
