1.
Torchwood (2006 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
The members of the Torchwood Institute, a secret organization founded by the British Crown, fight to protect the Earth from extraterrestrial and supernatural threats. (50 mins.)
“ I love the whole Doctor Who and Torchwood universe and Captain Jack is one of my all time favourite TV characters. Hard not to love John Barrowman as the charming Captain Jack (who will pretty much jump anything with a pulse). I see Torchwood as a more grown-up take on the Doctor Who universe - which is awesome! ” - Eyarmia
 
2.
Doctor Who (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
The further adventures of the time travelling alien adventurer known as the Doctor and his/her companions. (45 mins.)
“ What a brilliant idea regeneration is, that way a show can keep going and going, even if the actor is looking for new challenges. I love the whole Doctor Who universe and the way that the makers keep dropping hints, a lot of which a easy to miss the first time around, but who suddenly make sense, when it all comes together! ” - Eyarmia
 
3.
Supernatural (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Two brothers follow their father's footsteps as "hunters" fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth. (44 mins.)
“ Ah - The Winchesters who have saved the world numerous times, literally have gone through hell and still have the energy to kick some serious demon but. The show gets more and more out there, which normally would make me loose interest, but somehow the make it work.
A big thanks to Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki for hanging in there, the show would not work without theme. ” - Eyarmia
 
4.
Criminal Minds (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
The cases of the F.B.I. Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), an elite group of profilers who analyze the nation's most dangerous serial killers and individual heinous crimes in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again. (42 mins.)
“ The psychology behind the hunt for serial killers is in it self interesting. Ad to that interesting characters and a great cast, need I say more? Well maybe that Shemar Moore is also very easy on the eye! ” - Eyarmia
 
5.
Queer as Folk (1999 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A groundbreaking gay adult drama which chronicles the lives of Stuart and Vince, as well as 15-year-old Nathan, who is in love with Stuart. (48 mins.)
“ The original British series. I love both the British and the American version of this show, but I think the show is a good example, that you can take it a bit further in British TV, than in American when it come to things like language and sex scenes. To me it makes it a bit more real! Anyway would have loved to see a longer run for this show! ” - Eyarmia
 
6.
Queer as Folk (2000 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
The lives and loves of a group of gay friends living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (47 mins.)
“ Normally I'm not a big fan of American remakes of shows, but this one managed to find the line between staying true to the original and making it work in an American setting. I like TV Shows that make me think about things and Queer as folk differently made me think about some subjects that are not usually a part of my life. Cute guys making out probably made me give the show a star or two extra! ” - Eyarmia
 
7.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
An elite team of police forensic evidence investigation experts work their cases in Las Vegas. (60 mins.)
“ Love Vegas, like New York, Miami not so much. And I think it is mainly due to the colour schemes. Vegas has a lot of dark colours, New York many blue tones and Miami I would describe as orange (not my favourite colour). CSI has a great use of different methods of storytelling and creative filming. ” - Eyarmia
 
8.
Veronica Mars (2004 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
After her best friend is murdered and her father is removed as county sheriff, Veronica Mars dedicates her life to cracking the toughest mysteries in the affluent town of Neptune. (44 mins.)
“ A kick-ass girl that beats the bad guys with her brain, not by handing out beat-downs -love it. The TV show Veronica Mars defiantly shows that things don't have to be extreme to be interesting! ” - Eyarmia
 
9.
White Collar (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A white collar criminal agrees to help the FBI catch other white collar criminals using his expertise as an art and securities thief, counterfeiter, and conman. (40 mins.)
“ Who wouldn't like to be conned by the charming Neal Caffrey, well at least having gotten to spend time with him, would soften the blow. Matt Bomer is very convincing and charming in the role. And together with the rest of the cast he makes White Collar a perfect combination of comedy and crime, that shows us not to judge on first appearances! ” - Eyarmia
 
10.
Oz (1997 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
A series chronicling the daily activities of an unusual prison facility and its criminal inhabitants. (55 mins.)
Director: Gregory Dark
“ The first complete TV series I bought on DVD. With hard violence, harsh language an full frontal male nudity, the show, for me, was ground-breaking for American television, hats of to HBO for having the guts to go that way. Very convincing acting from many sides, but must admit I find it a bit scary, that the show had me crushing on more than one psychopath! ” - Eyarmia
 
11.
Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Follows a group of friends living in Beverly Hills, California, from their school days and into adulthood. (44 mins.)
“ Not really a show I would watch today, but I used to love it, and I followed it all the way through my teenage years, so it has to go on this list! ” - Eyarmia
 
12.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
This show introduces the Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD who investigate sexually related crimes. (60 mins.)
“ My favourite in the Law and Order franchise by miles. I don't know if it's a great cast, well written characters or a combinations of both, but the less than perfect detectives defiantly ads to the likeability of the show and gives it a leg up on a lot of other crime shows. ” - Eyarmia
 
13.
True Blood (2008 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
Telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse encounters a strange new supernatural world when she meets the mysterious Bill, a southern Louisiana gentleman and vampire. (55 mins.)
“ Cute and vampires don't go together in my world and True Blood is anything but cute (well besides the cute guys). Lots of violence, blood and sex makes it a vampire show for grown-ups and well worth watching. The shows is for me constantly on the line of becoming to crazy, and has crossed it a bit at times, but I'm still watching. ” - Eyarmia

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
The staff of an army hospital in the Korean war find that laughter is the best way to deal with their situation. (25 mins.)
“ A show that I can watch again and again. Likeable characters and lots of great comedy in a serious setting totally makes up for the quality of picture and special effects, that aren't what we are used to nowadays. ” - Eyarmia
 
15.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A dramatization of author Alex Haley's family line from ancestor Kunta Kinte's enslavement to his descendants' liberation. (570 mins.)
“ It's important to remember and learn from our past, and TV as well as Film can help us do that, while entertaining us and making us think about thing, we are not necessarily confronted with in our daily lives. Roots is a great example of a show, that does exactly that! ” - Eyarmia
 
16.
The Listener (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A young paramedic discovers he has telepathic powers. (42 mins.)
“ Well to be honest Craig Olejnik's eyes could probably make me watch any show he is in, but the idea of being able to hear/see other peoples thoughts is also very appealing especially combined with interesting crime stories. ” - Eyarmia
 
17.
The Lair (2007 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
The Lair is a private gay club run by vampires, who use the club as a source for attractive young men to feed from... (30 mins.)
“ Okay defiantly not the best storyline or filming and perhaps not really the best acting either. But with all those cute guys making out with each other, I don't really care, especially when I get to watch the super sexy Frankie Valenti. ” - Eyarmia
 
18.

A group of ambitious misfits try to escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice, while working to pursue dreams of their own. (44 mins.)
“ Without the music Glee would most likely be just another teenage show, but as it is, it's great! We all like seeing underdogs succeed but the great music and interesting interpretation of the hits from both today and the past. ” - Eyarmia
 
19.
Ally McBeal (1997 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Ally McBeal and Billy Thomas were going steady throughout their childhoods. Ally even followed Billy... (45 mins.)
“ I miss that dancing baby! Funny, interesting and full of great music for me sums up the show Ally. The show was a weekly part of my life for years, but it also ended at the right time. ” - Eyarmia
 
20.
Numb3rs (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
Working for the F.B.I., a mathematician uses equations to help solve various crimes. (43 mins.)
“ I knew I should have paid better attention in maths class! Like in most crime shows you are left wondering, how much of this would actually work in real life, not sure I care though. It's good entertainment and what really works for this show is the two very different brothers working together and through that get to know each other. ” - Eyarmia
 
21.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X

Oh and guys in uniform never hurt! ” - Eyarmia

“ The characters are not quite as interesting as in the original NCIS, but the guys are hotter and the action bigger. Ad to that the interesting play between the main characters especially Kensi and Marty and it's a show well worth watching. ” - Eyarmia
