Favorite TV Series

Post by Rando Yaguchi »

Didn't see this as a topic, so I figured I'd make one. What are your favorite scripted shows? Live action, animated, any genre; broadcast or streaming. Can be a top five, top ten or beyond.

1) The Wire
2) The Sopranos
3) Better Call Saul
4) Neon Genesis Evangelion
5) Breaking Bad
6) Rick and Morty
7) Batman: The Animated Series
8) Shameless (Seasons 1-4)
9) The Simpsons (Seasons 1-7)
10) Six Feet Under

Oh God, give us your protection
Let no blame lie at the innocents who have prayed
If your high praise is all we have
Let us not be without you...

I really do like Mayans but its not near SoA for me. I don't think the characters are near as unique and well drawn as the Sons. I love EZ and Angel, I like Coco a lot too (despite him starting to make some really stupid decisions) but I just don't think the rest of the club is near as memorable.

Greetings,

Not sure if there is a seperate thread just for Animated series or not, but I'm just going to list a few of my favorites. Also I won't be listing Anime here, or rebranded Anime for western audiences such as Star Blazers or Voltron because that list would be just way too long. This is strictly my favorite animated series produced for western audiences:

In no particular order:

Young Justice
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Thundercats (2011)
Masters of the Universe (2002)
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Star Wars: Rebels
The Transformers
Beast Wars Transformers
Transformers Prime
War Planets/Shadow Raiders
The Pirates of Dark Water
Spiderman:The Animated Series
Batman:The Animated Series
X-Men (1993)
Justice League/JLU
The Simpsons
Futurama
The Critic
The Tick
Freakazoid
Animaniacs/Pinky and The Brain
To all you dub preservationists, my friends, you have my eternal thanks 8-) . Never stop what you do, you are amazing!

I have no idea how I forgot this. The first seven seasons of The Simpsons are brilliant and most definitely in my top ten.

I was watching the episode the other day where Homer got accused of sexually harassing the babysitter when all he did was grab a piece of candy off of her trousers. I was literally pissing myself laughing. Bare in mind that this is a 30 year old episode and I've seen it numerous times through the years and it still made me laugh.

Ugh, that's just brilliant. The Simpsons was so 90's yet also so timeless...
