Favorite Shows of All Time

Postby Tyler » Thu Mar 29, 2012 3:10 pm

List your top 10 favorite shows of all time in order. These can be old or new shows. I'll let you guys start because this is going to be really tough.

If you can't pick just 10, feel free to give out some "honorable mentions"

In no particular order other than the order they came into my mind
Twilight Zone
Psych
Lost
30 Rock
Futurama
Arrested Development
How I Met Your Mother
Flight Of The Conchords
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? (child-hood favorite)

that's only eight but I can't think of anymore right now without going into anime. Yeah I like anime, big whoop, wanna fight about it.

In that case
Fullmetal Alchemist (Original series and Brotherhood series)
Yu Yu Hakusho

I will also cop out and use no particular order.

Arrested Development
Breaking Bad
Dexter
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Shameless
Spartacus
Mythbusters
The Walking Dead
Modern Family
Community

Honorable Mentions and why they didn't make it.
Lost - this was a tough one. I loved the show (regardless of the ending), but I don't think I would recommend anyone to watch the whole series just because of how disappointing the ending was and how outrageous the plot got.
Californiacation - started off great, but every season is pretty much exactly the same
Homeland - feel guilty putting this up there since there has only been one season
Prison Break - like I've said before, started really strong but ending was bad

This list needs to be revised eventually. I haven't watched the new episodes of Arrested Development yet so I am doubting my fandom to the show. I feel like I need to watch the new ones and the whole series again.

This last season of Dexter is horrible. I love the first seasons, but it has not been good lately.

Spartacus is now over for ever. I still think it belongs on the list, but none of the additional seasons came close to the first.

Game of Thrones now belongs in the top 3 shows of mine.

Breaking Bad will end this year and is currently holding steadying at #1

Breaking Bad needs to be added to mine. I don't think I had watched it when I made my list. I'd probably put it in place of South Park.

I've been meaning to pick back up with Louie. I really liked the first couple seasons.
