    Haven't really gotten into a lot of shows that premiered in the last 19 years.... maybe only a few

    Last Man Standing
    Modern Family
    Parks and Recreation
    The Office

    Most premiered in the 90s and ran into the last 19 years (King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, Frasier, etc)

    It's better than those as it never lost it's pacing or quality throughout. The shows I like the best are the ones that maintain their core integrity and quality through their entire run. Hence why I pointed out my slight disappointment with Parks & Rec.

    Plus Person of Interest is more on point now than when it came out 8+ years ago. Check it out, it builds and builds.

    Breaking Bad was a hype. Didn't like that one so much.

    True Detective season one was great, Boardwalk Empire as well. Dark and Mind Hunter on Netflix a very good too.

    And my wife and I love Modern Family.

    It was released when I had Netflix with a friend from school, so I could watch the entire run. Truly terrific!

    A shame it's not out on any media as of yet.

    Guess Netflix are so rich they don’t require the $$$ with Media Sales.

    It's so random - House of Cards got out, OITNB as well, Narcos too. Guess it's because sense8 pretty much tanked early on. It was a struggle for the creators to even get to do the second season.

    Funny I wasn’t impressed with HOC ( first season good) Orange ( More consistency: watchable) Narcos ( alright ). So maybe I’d be disappointed with Sense8.

    It's all mixed bags: HOC and OITNB both lost me after season 3, I've only seen one season of Narcos. But sense8 had me clinged to the screen for the better part of its running time. The Wachowskis really embraced the storytelling possibilities of the series format and did a fantastic job. Once you get past the sci-fi idea behind it, it's an amazing ride! At least for me it was :)

    I agree with about 90% of the shows that were mentioned many times. There are some other shows I thought I would mention many of you may have missed that you really need to check out. All are definitely worth watching.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
    Bosch
    Endeavour
    Unforgotten
    Luther

    Honorable mention:
    Manhattan (Rachel Brosnahan (Mrs. Maisel) is in both.)

    Snowfall appeals to me. Least there’s a region 1 season 1 dvd available.

    I dumped TV in 1997, but was turned on to one show that I bought on DVD and absolutely love:

    Firefly

    However, now that we have amazon Prime, I've been turned on to a few new ones. Our favorites are

    Marvelous Mrs. Maizel.
    Burn Notice
    Suits (first three seasons before it turned into a soap opera)

    Problem with most modern series is that they drag everything out too much. I don't have that much time to rot away in front of a TV. It's why I stopped watching the following after just a few episodes. In both cases the premise was fantastic, but the execution developed way too slow:
    Outlander
    Man in the High Tower
