Default Your favourite 5 serious television shows ever?

I gotta say, by leaps and bounds, I think these are the best 5 series to come around.

In no particular order:

1. Deadwood:

2. The Knick:

3. Fargo:

4. Game of Thrones:

5. True Detective:

Honorable mentions to:
Breaking Bad, Band of Brothers, Sherlock (UK), Twin Peaks.

What are your favourites? Any suggestions for me? I feel like I've seen everything good out there.

1. The Wire
2. The Shield
3. The Sopranos
4. Breaking Bad
5. True Detective

Don't overlook The Shield. Not many people seem to have watched it.. But it was a very satisfying and addicting series. Also agree with Fargo and Band of Brothers.

I tried, so very hard to get in to The Wire. I know it's one of the top rated shows of all time. Maybe it didn't age well, but I struggled to get through 3 episodes, and eventually gave up.

I absolutely loved the other 4.

I'm not going to say "all time" because, as a person, I am subject to change and growth. However, my current top 5 would be:

True Detective
True Detective
True Detective
True Detective
True Detective

really though
1. True Detective
2. Community
3. Arrested Development (OG)
4. Brooklyn 99
5. I guess I'd have to say Game of Thrones...

You won't regret it if you drag yourself kicking and screaming if necessary through Season 1. There is no way you can come out of it without it finally "clicking" for you, the character development just takes a little while. #1 show of all time for a reason, 'cause it's really that good.

Pretty sure the only serious TV series i watch is Law and Order. Prefer the original series over any of the spinoffs. But top 5 TV series for me are(based off i could just put on anytime any episode and watch it):

1. Big Bang Theory
2. Seinfeld
3. Community
4. Arrested Development
5. Freaks and Geeks(was too shortlived)
