1.
Parks and Recreation (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
The absurd antics of an Indiana town's public officials as they pursue sundry projects to make their city a better place. (22 mins.)
“ Parks and Rec only ran 13 episodes this season, but every single one of them was a gem. The most consistently laugh-out-loud funny show on tv knows how to benefit from what's probably the best comedic ensemble on tv while never losing track of its character arcs.
Best Episodes: "Flu Season", "Harvest Festival", "Fancy Party" ” - cofalco
 
2.
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.)
“ After a wonderful season one, Community went to a completely new peak in season two, turning itself into something completely different in every episode and exploring what it's like to be a sitcom in a very meta-way. It was nearly impossible to pick between this and Parks and Rec for number one, but something had to give.
Best episodes: "Cooperative Calligraphy", "Creative Film Studies", "Paradigms of Human Memory" ” - cofalco
 
3.
Mad Men (2007 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
A drama about one of New York's most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960s, focusing on one of the firm's most mysterious but extremely talented ad executives, Donald Draper. (47 mins.)
“ Season four of Mad Men is probably my favorite so far and could also have easily made the number one spot, the highlight of the season was obviously the payoff we got to Don and Peggy's relationship in the amazing episode "The Suitcase", one of the best episodes of TV ever.
Best Episodes: "The Rejected", "The Suitcase", "The Beautiful Girls" ” - cofalco
 
4.
Friday Night Lights (2006 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
The trials and tribulations of small town Texas football players, their friends, family, and coaching staff. (44 mins.)
“ An amazing and suiting finale for one of the best dramas of the last few years. It was worthwhile spending five seasons in Dillon.
Best Episodes: "On the Outside Looking In", "Don't Go", "Always" ” - cofalco
 
5.
Game of Thrones (2011 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros. Meanwhile, a forgotten race hell-bent on destruction returns after being dormant for thousands of years. (56 mins.)
“ An incredible show, which (at least on its first season) seems to be doing to fantasy what Deadwood did to westerns and Battlestar Galactica to sci-fi. Helped by great scripts and a wonderful cast including amazing performances by Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke.
Best Episodes: "The Golden Crown", "Baelor", "Fire and Blood" ” - cofalco

Old-school U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is reassigned from Miami to his childhood home in the poor, rural coal-mining towns in Eastern Kentucky. (44 mins.)
“ I liked the first season of this show, but with the addition of Margo Martindale this year, it became one of the top dramas of the year. Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins and Kaitlyn Dever were all amazing in this incredible season.
Best Episodes: "The Moonshine War", "Brother's Keeper", "Bloody Harlan" ” - cofalco
 
7.
Louie (2010 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
The life of Louis CK, a divorced comedian with two kids living in New York. (22 mins.)
“ Louis C.K. got to do whatever he wanted in every episode of his new tv show in what turned out to be a sort of diary of his life and comedy. Nothing on TV is quite like it.

8.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
Ex-cop and recovering alcoholic Hank Dolworth partners with his best friend, former criminal Britt Pollack, in an unlicensed private investigation business.
“ A great show about a couple of detective buddies in southern california that got lousy ratings and was quickly canceled, but that deserves to be rediscovered on dvd.
Best Episodes: "Pilot", "Change Partners", "Hail Mary" ” - cofalco
 
9.
Archer (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
Covert black ops and espionage take a back seat to zany personalities and relationships between secret agents and drones. (22 mins.)
“ Probably the show that makes me laugh the most. It improved on its first season by giving its characters back stories and more important and cut-wrenching arcs such as Archer having breast cancer.
Best Episodes: "Pipeline Fever", "Stage Two", "Placebo Effect" ” - cofalco
 
10.
Downton Abbey (2010 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
A chronicle of the lives of the British aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the early 20th Century. (58 mins.)
“ The british attacked and I became completely obsessed with "Downton Abbey". The story of the Crawleys and their servants at the beginning of the XX Century is just one of those shows that you can't stop watching. I watched the first season in about two days! It doesn't hurt that you have amazing performances by Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter and Maggie Smith. ” - cofalco
