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 financial future. (49 mins.)
“ The greatest Drama of all-time took only 8 episodes from the first half of its fifth and last season to become the best show of the year. If it doesn't win best Drama at the Emmy's in 2013 then there will certainly be some rioting to be had. ” - InsomniaSS
 
2.
Game of Thrones (2011 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
While a civil war brews between several noble families in Westeros, the children of the former rulers of the land attempt to rise up to power. Meanwhile a forgotten race, bent on destruction, plans to return after thousands of years in the North. (56 mins.)
“ Definitely the most epic show on television in 2012 and possibly of all-time. In only it's second season the writers and directors have done an amazing job tying in the many character and allowing the audience to know each one in great depth. You never know whose going to die or what situation the characters will be in next (Unless you've read the books). The cinematography alone puts this show ahead of many others. ” - InsomniaSS
 
3.
The Walking Dead (2010 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by the walking dead. Fighting the dead, fearing the living. (44 mins.)
“ The most surprising show on television when it comes to being greater than expectations. You would never except a show about zombies to have the emotions and story line that this show has. Each season has been better than the last and with the latest season ending the way it did, you can bet that the streak of quality programming will continue. The characters change often and yet you still feel connected to each and every one of them. ” - InsomniaSS
 
4.
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.)
“ It has the best female actress of any show (Maybe tied or just slightly behind Edie Falco), and boy does she act her ass of every single episode. The story line is so much better than any other crime or terror related show. It's one of those shows that is getting more and more popular: A show where you aren't sure about the main character and to whether you should hate or love him. It's hard to know the motives and behaviors of any of the characters and that makes their next action less predictable and makes the show one of the greatest on television. ” - InsomniaSS
 
5.
Suits (2011 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
On the run from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, finds himself a job working with Harvey Specter, one of New York City's best lawyers. (44 mins.)
“ A show that doesn't get much attention and will most likely never get the credit it deserves. Great chemistry between the main characters, funny, and has a very genuine feel to it when it comes to the show's law environment. The first season felt a bit random, but the second season had great story lines that tied together nicely between episodes and seasons. ” - InsomniaSS
