    You're in for a treat. It's a slow burn, stick with it for a few episodes and you'll never look back.

    4. Breaking Bad
    5. Black Mirror
    6. The Wire
    7. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    8. House
    9. I Faked My Own Death
    10. 24

    Some of these shows lost their mojo in latter seasons (Breaking Bad, 24), one only lasted for a season (I Faked My Own Death, but oh what a season!), and one only appears occasionally (Black Mirror). I would've included Dexter but the latter seasons, especially the last, were so wretched they ruined the show's overall score.

    The last season of BB was incredibly erratic IMO. Some episodes were awesome, some were ridiculous (like the train heist caper), then it just got depressing.
