If Amazon and places like that count this is my list.

The Expanse
Lost In Space
The 100
The Terror

Right now I can't think of a fifth one that I really like that is still on.


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
Doctor Who
Breaking Bad
The Wire

Edit: I didn't read the OP oops.

Doctor Who
Better Call Saul
Rick and Morty
Westworld (but it's slipping, imo..)


Top 5 All-Time:

1.) The Sopranos
2.) The Office (US)
3.) Lost
4.) Breaking Bad
5.) The X-Files/ Game of Thrones

I can't break that tie. I love both of those shows. They both had incredibly strong starts and they also both had pretty lackluster endings. And for totally different reasons. X-Files needed to end much earlier and GoT needed another 10 or so episodes. Overall I still think they are both top tier shows.

Current top 5:

1.) Stranger Things
2.) Schitt$ Creek
3.) Letterkenny
4.) Westworld
5.) Archer

I struggled to put together that top 5 and I kinda cheated. Schitts Creek technically just ended. I am not as deep into the TV scene as I have been in the past. And I haven't seen the bigger shows like Better Call Saul, The Outsider or Watchmen. But I do enjoy the shows I listed a great deal. With Stranger Things the only one I still actively countdown its return like I did with GoT, although to a lesser degree. I also haven't started season 3 of Westworld. So that could always drop off.

Game of Thrones would have ended up higher on my list if it wasn't for the horrible, horrible ending and poorly written last two seasons. It Dexter'd the whole series for me.

I did forget about Stranger Things. That's a better show than Westworld for sure.

Oh boy...this is tough...

All time:

The Office
Breaking Bad

Those three are on it but I don't know what else to add. Do I add Parks and Rec? Monday Night RAW? Family Guy? South Park? Not sure.

Right now I am watching Community and Better Call Saul but that's all. For now.
