Breaking Bad (2008 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
A high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer turns to manufacturing and selling methamphetamine in order to secure his family's future. (49 mins.)
“ Convinced that anything even remotely affiliated with Vince Gilligan is gold. The man might just be Midas. The story of a good man that makes bad decisions, Walter White's descent into iniquity is disturbingly fascinating. I have yet to find a show that carries from season to season with such intensity and suspense. It's a show that makes you love the bad guy for all the wrong reasons. ” - joe-seguin
 
2.
Arrested Development (2003 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
Level-headed son Michael Bluth takes over family affairs after his father is imprisoned. But the rest of his spoiled, dysfunctional family are making his job unbearable. (489 mins.)
“ It's rare to find a series packed with so much wit and complexity that it often confuses the viewers as they lie on the floor, busting their guts with laugh after laugh. Arrested Development was a show too smart for it's time (and it's network) and left all of it's devoted fans wanting more. The most well-crafted comedy series ever. ” - joe-seguin
 
3.
The Simpsons (1989 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
The satiric adventures of a working-class family in the misfit city of Springfield. (22 mins.)
“ To anyone who loved television growing up and spent a great deal of their childhood watching it, there's a good chance The Simpsons acted as a sort of pseudo second family in your life. The beginning of the series has its moments and the later seasons seem to have tiptoed a little too far into dreaded Family Guy humor, but seasons 3 through 19 are some of the best writing you'll ever find on television. ” - joe-seguin
 
4.
Kenny vs. Spenny (2002 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Two best friends, Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice, face each other in various competitions. At the end of each episode, the loser gets humiliated. (22 mins.)
“ Along with bacon and free health care, Kenny Hotz (and at times Spencer Rice) top my list for reasons I'm proud to be Canadian. The simple premise of two friends competing against one another, mixed with the maniacal and downright unholy (but always hysterical) conduct of Kenneth Joel Hotz and Spenny's whiny, false sense of entitlement make for six seasons of comedic gold. The best thing that has happened to reality television since...well, ever. ” - joe-seguin
 
5.
Community (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
A suspended lawyer is forced to enroll in a community college with an eclectic staff and student body. (22 mins.)
“ Though the second season has yet to finish, NBC's Community has had a solid season and a half of airtime. It's The Breakfast Club, but striped of it's severity and teenage angst while maintaining it's quirkiness. The show hits its stride halfway through the first season when the absurdity meter seems to shatter and no scenario seems implausible for this lovable Spanish study group. ” - joe-seguin
 
6.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
Five friends with big egos and slightly arrogant attitudes are the proprietors of an Irish bar in Philadelphia. (22 mins.)
“ It's Always Sunny is a show I simply couldn't put down after I began watching. There's never been a combination of characters so unlikeable that you love so much. After every season I feel as if it has to have peaked, but every season I'm proven wrong when the gang continues to find themselves in even more asinine situations, be it getting held hostage in their own bar or throwing a friend an intervention while intoxicated. ” - joe-seguin
 
7.
Californication (2007 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A writer tries to juggle his career, his relationship with his daughter and his ex-girlfriend, as well as his appetite for beautiful women. (28 mins.)
Director: Adam Bernstein
“ Hank Moody... enough said. ” - joe-seguin
 
8.
Dexter (2006 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
By day, mild-mannered Dexter is a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami police. But at night, he is a serial killer who only targets other murderers. (53 mins.)
“ Dexter once sat at the top of my list, but after a disastrous season 5, I fear it's jumped the shark. The first season is perhaps the greatest thought out and executed dramas ever to air. With an absolutely wicked premise and one of the best casts around, here's to hoping season six can save the greatest serial killer of all time. ” - joe-seguin
 
9.
Shameless (2011 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
An alcoholic man lives in a perpetual stupor while his six children with whom he lives cope as best they can. (46 mins.)
“ Brilliantly acted, beautifully shot...and only in it's first season. I've never seen the british version, so I'm new to the Shameless gang. Nevertheless, William H. Macy and his band of gruff and able children reveal that family rides shotgun in a world that constantly makes it sit in the back seat. ” - joe-seguin
 
10.
In Treatment (2008 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A psychotherapist questions his abilities and gets help by reuniting with his old therapist, whom he has not seen for ten years. (25 mins.)
“ I've only watched the first season, but In Treatment is a nice switch from the regular television shows that are found on the air. More of a play and less of a production, it thrives on dialogue and concentration, much like a real therapy session. ” - joe-seguin
