TV shows worth watchingby agberterdoo | created - 16 Nov 2015 | updated - 3 weeks ago | Public
Most of the shows on this list I went in watching with initial low expectations! But I was pleasantly wrong. Also shows on this list are worth watching over and over again (underrated+classic shows).

1. Shameless (2011– )
TV-MA | 46 min | Comedy, Drama
A scrappy, fiercely loyal Chicago family makes no apologies.
this is the american counterpart to the UK version and this version does it well. If you like family bonding, loads of drama, and intense emotional scenes this is the show for you.
2. Flesh and Bone (2015)
TV-MA | 60 min | Drama
A talented but emotionally troubled dancer runs away to New York City and quickly finds herself immersed in the cutthroat world of professional ballet.
I recently watched this and i found out that the writer from breaking bad worked on this too. I've heard it has similarities to Whiplash but since i've never seen it...well. I can honestly say this show is unique all into itself and i love that. I doesn't make you bored at all and it's about Ballet!
3. Sons of Anarchy (2008–2014)
TV-MA | 45 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
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.
OMG i use to say Game of Thrones was my favorite show ever because of all the "edge of your seats" moments. But this show for me blew me out of the water! It's smart, sexy, edgy, and very modern. It made me almost go out and move to CA.
4. Outlander (2014– )
TV-MA | 64 min | Drama, Fantasy, Romance
An English combat nurse from 1945 is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743.
When i first saw this show there was a lot of pissed of moments I had in the series (primarily about the sexist moments), but the settings tell of the obvious sexism in said period. The show starts off slow but picks up rather nicely and makes you want to watch more!
5. Sex and the City (1998–2004)
TV-MA | 30 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

A great show every little girl should watch it! enough said :)

TV-14 | 47 min | Drama
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.
I love how this show made me think about the depth of the character. I loved the acting styles of the series and how personal it is, not to mention how *beep* awesomely awful Don Draper is!
7. Skins (2007–2013)
TV-MA | 46 min | Drama
The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
This show had a USA counterpart but you should really focus on the UK version. I loved this serious, how extremely dramatic it is and not to mention how talented the actors are for such a young age!
