    I’m surprised that Sons of Anarchy wasn’t on the list.

  2. Jason Sandmann on July 31, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    So glad to see The Leftovers make the list. Probably the most emotional television experience I’ve ever had.

  3. Nour Art on July 31, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    You missed "The Boys", one the best shows i’ve ever watched, on the outside it looks like a superhero movie, but underneath that is a great message about entertainement and politics and how they manipulate the public

  4. Dominic on July 31, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Band of brothers and Six feet Under deserved spots on this list

  5. francis hartogensis on July 31, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    i found an error in the video, or you forgot because i don’t see better call saul, ozark, chernobyl, attack on titan nor do i see dark. Narcos should have gotten atleast an honorable and same for black mirror.

  6. Luke Lauchle on July 31, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Where’s Cheers?

    I am the one who knocks…. Gangsta!!!

  9. Ryan Werge on July 31, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Very disappointed to not have seen the Peaky Blinders on the list!

  10. Taxi Driver on July 31, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    I don’t agree. Sopranos is number 1 and breaking bad is number 2

  11. TheGermanAssassin on July 31, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Blue Bloods is better than the Wire

  12. Harsh Sahu on July 31, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Attack on Titan Anime laughing 🤣

  13. Gabriel Paulino on July 31, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    How is Mad Men totally abscent from this list and Stranger Things get a honorable mention. I mean, S01 is great and all but the other seasons are just berely above the "cool" mark. Mad Men is a masterpiece from begining to end.

  14. Timothy Varnes on July 31, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Seinfeld didn’t even get an Honorable Mention???? 🤦‍♀️

  15. Denny Jose Pious on July 31, 2021 at 9:39 pm


  16. John Doe on July 31, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    I am really surprised there was no mention of Prison Break and Sherlock, those are one of the greatest shows ever created, miles better than Sopranos or the wire.

  17. Thomas O'Connor on July 31, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    No M*A*S*H? Not even an honourable mention? I weep for humanity

  18. Florik Helmutson on July 31, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I totaly agree with your number 1 but you forgot Modern Family 😉

  19. Daniel Esparza on July 31, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Where is ‘The Walking Dead’

  20. Dan Hue on July 31, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Add to the list: The Expanse, Altered Carbon (S1).

    Agree with others that Band of Brothers is one the best shows ever.

  21. Lone Survivor on July 31, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    I was under the impression Breaking bad is the best drama material until I came across sopranos & wire

  22. gudius on July 31, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Seinfeld not even in honorable mentions? I rate this list 0/10

  23. Ellen Scarano on July 31, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Nurse Jackie

  24. yilguy on July 31, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Where is Seinfeld. Greatest sitcom ever and it is not even in the Honorable Mentions? Also, Game of Thrones is easily number 1.

  25. Julio Gimenez on July 31, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Wow! No mention of Mr. Robot.

  26. Bill Gz on July 31, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Breaking Bad is my favorite show of all time. I watched it during its run and recently enjoyed a second viewing so much more. One show I’m surprised wasn’t mentioned is Battlestar Galactica. Brilliant show I have also enjoyed multiple viewings.

  27. Venkata Nagendra Babu D on July 31, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Prison Break, Money Hiest atleast should be in honorable mentions

  28. Impact on July 31, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    no south park?

  29. Mark Clemente on July 31, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    I had a feeling Breaking Bad was going to be on this list. Same with GoT.

  30. Nicolas Dantomio on July 31, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    The TRUE list of the ALL TIME BEST TV SHOW is( only drama show here, I have a comedy top 10 list)
    1 – THE X FILES ( No doubt here 220 episodes- 2 movies) overall QUALITY 9.75/10
    2- BREAKING BAD ! ( A 62 episodes masterpiece) even my dad watch it, first Time I ever Saw him watch a TV shows outside of the 70′ , overall QUALITY 9.75/10
    3- LOST ( Greatest, but not everyone have the IQ to understand the stories tell here, or to understand the fantastic ending) No they are not dead from the start, how Can people understand that, you st*pid id*ot. 120 episodes overall quality 9.5/10
    4 – COLUMBO ( The best détective show ever 70 episodes of average 1h20 so basicaly 70 movies) Incredible acting and Writting, havent age at all. Overall quality. 9.5/10
    5- MONK ( 120 episodes ) Magical and Lost underrated show in History. Comedy drama detective show, there is everything here. OVERALL QUALITY 9.25/10
    6- Hercule Poirot ( difficult to rank from 6 to 10…) Same amount of hours than Columbo and Monk, and as much Greatest maybe even more but long Time no see, so for the moment its only 6 spot… OVERALL QUALITY 9.25/10
    7- THE WALKING DEAD ( Amazing story , and great characters) about 170 episodes After Season 11 will air. The reasons its " only 7" is because of some episodes not so great, too much focus on minor character. But anyway OVERALL QUALITY 9/10
    8 – CHARMED ( Also most underrated show ever) Always been a fan of this one, its effective especialy the first 5-6 seasons, a standalone episodes show but with a lot of main story) about 180 episodes of entertaiment . OVERALL QUALITY 9/10
    9 -BETTER CALL SAUL ( Amazing piece of TV , only reason its "9" is because only 50 episodes… But After the 10 last maybe it will go up some places) OVERALL QUALITY 9.5/10
    10- MENTALIST , dont remember but I believe around 150 episodes to 180 ( Great détective show, Patric Jane is woww Incredibly entertaining) and a great main story with red John , on top of very good standalone) OVERALL QUALITY 8.75/10
    10 STAR TREK , 80 épisodes of a Legendary show, with larger than life characters. A must watch for it is one of the best sci fi show ever. OVERALL QUALITY 8.5/10
    Honorable mention
    only shows I haven’t watch yet !
    So Come back for update
    ( and Im talking about quality of story telling writting acting , also about Quantity because a show like Chernobyl is 5 episodes so its not a series, to make the list you have to be around 30 episodes at least)

  31. CLEMENCE E ELIAS 122012801010 on July 31, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    the originals, peaky blinders and dark deserve to be on the list….. 🙂

  32. shahrukh virani on July 31, 2021 at 10:01 pm

  34. hippomancy on July 31, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Office- meh/annoying -watched with son
    Leftovers- meh/ couldn’t buy in, no characters grabbed me
    Lost- interesting at first- then a lot of filler- did sit down for finale- a communal “pincher martin”…
    Simpsons- got old. Overstayed its welcome. Even the halloween shows are meh…
    Avatar was fun. Unmissable? No.
    The Wire- yes. Loved the memorial ending. RIP jimmy…😏
    Twin Peaks… not for everyone, but i’m glad i watched back in the day..
    Game of Thrones- meh. Save time- go watch Lord of the Rings.
    Sopranos- meh. Save time- godfather 1&2.
    Band of Brothers- yes.
    Breaking bad- again not for everyone, but i’m glad i watched.

    My choices-
    Life – with Damien Lewis
    Prisoner- patrick mcgoohan for sci fi purists (especially if watched Secret Agent- another great one – for fans of Bourne or new Bond)
    Firefly – for sci fi fans
    Endeavour- for anglophiles, retro fans, or mystery lovers.

  35. Pat Booy on July 31, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    No Dexter???


  36. Dave Ross on July 31, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Well ive watched 2 of these shows multiple times: Lost 6 times all the way through and breaking bad 4 times. 24 which I felt should of been an honourable mention I have watched 5 times through and what the hell Prison Break and heroes 4 times each :P. but i wouldn’t put those shows in the top 10 but are still great.

  37. Evan Sherlock on July 31, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    I have seen everything on this list except twin peaks. And I can safely say that the greatest show I’ve watched isn’t anywhere to be seen. Sons of anarchy will never get the respect it deserves

  38. Nate Louden on July 31, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    they lost me at 10

  39. Shawn Mathew on July 31, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Aot says hi

  40. ahmet karlı on July 31, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    everyone can see the simpsons one time anyway, because it takes a lifetime to watch all episodes

  41. Bogdan Ionut on July 31, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    What about Suits, Mad Men or Westworld?

  42. Iris Coenders on July 31, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Freaks and geeks is my all time favorite

  43. Mehmet Akif on July 31, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Hey, where is True Dedective and Mad Men.

  44. King Trawal on July 31, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Friends is the gayest show ever. hate it. this list sucks

  45. Finnishlakeguy5445 on July 31, 2021 at 10:11 pm

  46. SiYu El on July 31, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    08:11 I know what u did there!

  47. Mark O'Connor on July 31, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    This list is terrible… 10 is the shit American version of the Office, 9 I’ve never heard of and 8 is Lost… which lets face was a gigantic waste of everyones time. Number 1 beaking bad!!?? Are you fucking kidding me? Worst top mojo list ever… the only thing correct here is The Sopranos but it should be #1.

  48. Navjot Hothi on July 31, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Seinfeld deserves to be on the lis

  49. alfonso on July 31, 2021 at 10:13 pm

  50. Farhan Sattar on July 31, 2021 at 10:15 pm
