Watched Series

Every series that I've seen in the order I watched them.

I've chosen to exclude series that are 'non-story' related such as The Simpsons, Top Gear etc. Also series that I've watched until the end and series I got bored watching are not here.

Ranking from 1 to 3. All of these are great series but 3 is for my absolute favorites, 2 is for really great series and 1 for the rest.

(Because I made this list 3 years after I started watching TV shows I might have forgotten the order of the first 10-15 titles. )

Votes: 179,509

First series I ever watched. I was maybe 11 when I first saw this. I had to wait a long time because I had to persuade my parents into buying an R rated series after every season. Highly dismissed in discussions nowadays. More people should watch it despite the old age.

Maybe the most fun I've had with a series. First 4 seasons are definitely one of the best TV out there but quality has a significant dip after that. For that reason I give this series a 2.

The Devil takes a vacation in La = one of the most interesting series out there. Great characters and great storytelling. However, the reason I'm giving this a 2 is because the highs in this are very high and the lows are very low.
