A list of the best television has to offer- really the only reason I still own a television. In order of awesomeness. (These are well into extra seasons, most on DVD)
Log in to copy items to your own lists.
Homeland (2011 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A bipolar CIA operative becomes convinced a prisoner of war has been turned by al-Qaeda and is planning to carry out a terrorist attack on American soil. (55 mins.)
“ So good. The best new show I have come across since 24- which is strange considering the topic of this show. Claire Danes is amazing as a manic CIA agent trying to fingure out how she missed it- the clues that lead to September 11. Chops to the writers for making such a great FEMALE lead. ” - MadameGeorge
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-splatter analyst for the Miami police. But at night, he is a serial killer who only targets other murderers. (53 mins.)
“ Yes I love a serial killer. Yes I am ok with that. ” - MadameGeorge
Boardwalk Empire (2010 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
An Atlantic City politician plays both sides of the law, conspiring with gangsters during the Prohibition era. (55 mins.)
“ As a history junkie, I find the world of Nucky and his cronies the best of everything that matters. The family, the loyalty, the love, the loss- the alcohol is all thrown together, blended and served over ice. Amazing characters, costumes, dialoge, music and the boardwalk almost makes you long for those days- almost. ” - MadameGeorge
Girls (2012 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A comedy about the experiences of a group of girls in their early 20s. (28 mins.)
“ The life and times of growing up as a girl has never been funnier and more to the point. Everyone can identify with these girls and their ups and downs. I am just glad it is done with humor- because at the end of the day that is the only thing that saves you from saying "eff it all". ” - MadameGeorge
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.)
“ Nothing says hot like cigs and scotch, well at least in my brain. I have no idea how Don Draper was dreamt up, but I do not even care. Season 1 & 2 are still my favor, but I love how the show remains relevent- years after the set time in the series. It just goes to show we really learn nothing from history. ” - MadameGeorge
Sons of Anarchy (2008 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club. (45 mins.)
“ Bring on the bikes, the drugs, the guns and the testing of friendship. I love Sons because of the interesting way the writers present the internal struggle of Jax- played so well by Charlie Hunnam. SAMCRO is a world onto its own and it is scary, amazing and astonishing to watch the evolution. ” - MadameGeorge
Weeds (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
When a suburban mother turns to dealing marijuana in order to maintain her privileged lifestyle after her husband dies, she finds out just how addicted her entire neighborhood already is. (28 mins.)
“ Soccer mom who deals? Ok, lets just put it out there- this is probably one of the more honest shows out there: including the nightmare that is reality TV. Sometimes the show hits so close to home I walk around my neighborhood thinking- I wonder if anyone..... ” - MadameGeorge
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.)
“ So smart and witty- it really is the only comedy that I still have hope in. I love the premise of the community college- having once been there myself. I love Joel McHale. I love Chevy. I hope that more people wake up to this gem of a show. ” - MadameGeorge

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Multiple teams race around the globe for $1,000,000 to 'amazing' locations. (60 mins.)
“ This is the only reality tv I watch- and I do not even consider it in the same club as all the other crap out there. I mean a race around the world- come on. That is awesome, give me a map, some money and a crazy partner and let the "reality" insue. ” - MadameGeorge
Independent Lens (1999 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
Different celebrity host present a new independent documentary.
“ Cause sometimes you need a reminder that you are not the center of the universe. Always delivers the truth- even when you really do not want to know. ” - MadameGeorge
