If it's the revival, it's still number 1 for me. Doesn't change shit.

Survivor Australia? I think Rake is well regarded. Underbelly is an Australian equivalent of American Crime Story but with Australian crimes. Please Like Me is an ok comedy. Summer Heights High by Chris Lilley was well-regarded, but he's been cancelled.

tldr no

Not even close to making the cut: Game of Thrones

I never respect you again D&D. You are worse than Hulk Hogan.

The fucking latter seasons just destroyed it, though. Dexter-like collapse.

I'm sure I'll be missing stuff but this is my list

1. Breaking Bad
2. The Leftovers
3. Mad Men
4. Better Call Saul
5. Watchmen
6. Bojack Horseman
7. Rick and Morty
8. Nathan For You
9. Atlanta
10. Vice Principals
11. Fleabag
12. Barry
13. Halt and Catch Fire
14. Community
15. Rectify

I'm currently finishing Patriot which is incredible and would make the list around 10-15 but I still have half of the final season to final. Working through Mr. Robot so that may make the list. I'd like to watch The Americans but just haven't watched past episode 1 so that's stalled. It was definitely tough to do just 15 and I feel a decent amount of the list changes in my head all the time.

Watchmen delivered one season of pretty much perfection so goddamn yes it made my top 5. I almost had Leftovers number 1 but Breaking Bad is something I made sure to watch live every week for a number of seasons. It was must see TV and I loved every minute of it.
