Z Nation
Star Trek
Soul Train
The Walking Dead/FTWD
Defiance
Miami Vice
Austin City Limits

Z Nation was definitely my all-time fave (craziest shit ever), but after that, they're just in the order I remembered them. I pretty much watched no non-news TV from about 1988 to 2008, and this list is pretty much proof.

LOST
Game of Thrones (might move to #2 after it ends)
Six Feet Under
Breaking Bad
Mad Men
The Leftovers

Others that are noteworthy:
Banshee

The Expanse
The Shield
Battlestar Galactica (2004)
Homeland
Sons of Anarchy

Iím hesitating listing Band of Brothers and The Pacific, since both were mini-series, but they are certainly not to miss.

these lists have become impossible for me to do.  there's too many good shows that i've seen.  if i go by the ones that i tend to re-watch over and over again and can't turn off if they if i come across them- i'd probably be listing things like Peep Show and Friends. Need to think about this one...

Oh yeah, the later seasons are not as good as the earlier ones.

X-Files is one I should have listed. But only the first 5-6 seasons. After that, it's a mess. But the early years were groundbreaking. It was that show and the online theories that got me diving in the internet in the mid-90's. #IWantToBelieve
