OP makes the case for his show, why it's so good, etc. It's the question/challenge posed that makes the thread moot, because it's clear nothing will convince OP, so he doesn't really mean it.
West Wing, Scrubs and Lost immediately come to mind, and that's just broadcast. I prefer Modern Family as well, and the first couple seasons of The Office. Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Burn Notice. I'd even say Friends but its best days were before the OP's given time frame. Maybe 30 Rock.

Season 1 of Prison Break is some of the best TV I've watched. No doubt about it. If you take only season 1, it's up there with the best. The final couple of seasons (especially the ending) soured me. Overall? It might not even make my top 10 (not including comedies):
Game of Thrones
In no particular order. And not counting Band of Brothers (more of a extended TV movie, but my favorite nonetheless), Justified, Sherlock, Suits and House along with those comedies.

Weren't the seasons past season 2 like unanimously hated by critics and fans alike? I always thought Prison Break was a show that started with a great concept and then fell off the bridge after their first season (ie. Heroes). Even LOST which has it's fair share of haters, had collectively stronger seasons than Prison Break.
The first two seasons were pretty good. I started watching the 3rd season, go to the 4th or so episode, and haven't watched it in other a month now probably... No desire to finish it. Speaking of, what happened in season 3 and 4? Curious to know, but not enough to sit through all those episodes.
I've skimmed through this thread and my conclusion is that Lost is the most overrated series in the world.
Not even close. Lost is frequently trashed - by like everyone who only got through half the show. Ironically, the same people who complain that the show answers no questions when they didn't even stick around until the very last episode.
