Seems odd you are completely disregarding comedies then. But that is why these lists are personal.

Game of Thrones would have been top 3 before the last season I'd guess but I'm thinking it will be 10-15 now.

I have it 7th currently after moving it up a couple times, but it got bad before the last season, I would say the Arya canal chase was my jump the shark moment, the Dorne stuff was all bad too but there was other good stuff going on when they weren't on screen

and it's really hard to compare Parks and Rec to Mr. Robot. Like funny show vs masterpiece

You should also check out Fleabag. The two seasons fly by.

I also encourage anybody looking for something fun with an edge check out Patriot. It really is something else and pretty much impossible to sum up. It took me a long time to finally check it out because there is just so much out there and not a lot of buzz but it seriously is a great show and will make my list.

I talk about American Vandal an obscene amount. I also was just spitballing after the top 8 or so, it's probably not 100% accurate.

Nice list. Friday Night Lights always gets the love from you and I appreciate it.

This is a fun idea but there's too many big ones I haven't gotten to yet.

Spoiler!


^ OSU is clearly afraid of the landslide that he just narrowly avoided

I probably won't share my list right away, all I know is that it's better than Corey's

There are a few shows I need to watch before making a Top 15. Vice Principals, Gemstones, and need to finish BCS and Legion.

The toughest part is shows that were good, but tanked in later seasons.

I couldn't get into Spartacus after Andy Whitfield died. Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena were great, though.

I will be surprised if anyone has Legion higher than me, an existential psychedelic super hero/villian show is just my thing though

It's just gonna come down to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and Mr. Robot.

Would not make a lick of sense if you haven't seen the first 2 seasons and the movie.

It doesn't make a lick of sense even if you have seen those things.
