    The Good Fight
    Mr. Robot

    I may have forgot obvious choices but it's definitely a golden age for TV series and a Top 10 list is a very short one.

    Thanks. When I tell friends I’m watching TWD, usually they have to pipe in their opinion that it sucks anywhere between S4 and 10.

    Mad Men (The second time around, the brilliance and intricacy of the writing really hits you.)
    Breaking Bad (Phenomenal on every level, take a morally dubious concept and run it like a locomotive all the way.)
    The Sopranos (The long-form 'Godfather'; what else could one call it?)
    Peaky Blinders (Hard, beautiful, enormously textured.)
    Carnivale (For its sheer audacity of subject and amazing execution, even if it got cut short. You don't get Depression-era American Gothic too often these days...)

    No. I know it's considered sacrilege but I didn't know about the UK version for awhile, and when I did watch it I was already too familiar with the Yank version, and frankly wasn't too impressed.

    I did too, but I didn't stick with it. Season 6 is what killed it for me.

    Carnivale?
    I’m unfamiliar with. Peaky Blinders too overrated.

    Almost inserted King of Queens, but realised that show started in 98. Also, would have listed South Park and Family Guy, but those shows began in the late 90's.

    I liked the first Season of Mr. Robot, but didn't make it through the second season. I also liked the first season of Stranger Things, but lost interest after season 2. I haven't even watched a preview for season 3. I also liked Lie to Me, but haven't seen all the episodes.

    David Tennant's "Kilgrave" wasn't in it. He was one of the best villains EVER (alongside "Pollos" in BB).

    Looks like Jessica Jones is getting renewed.

    Person Of Interest > worth investigating? Is it one those fast paced shows ala 24 or Homeland ?
