50 best TV Series of all time

I’ll second Yellowstone. I didn’t realize how much I loved it until I had to wait for new episodes. And the companion series 1923 and 1887 were also fantastic.

And spawned the everlasting question: “Ginger or Mary Anne”?

I also really enjoyed Person of Interest and Prison Break, have watched both more than once.

I just finished binge watching Person of Interest. All 5 seasons. What an incredible series. Of course what would one expect from Jonathan Nolan and JJ Abrams? Excellent acting, great photography and a very scary premise. Full on AI is just around the corner if not already here.

Great shows listed above. And I agree with all of them. As an oldie I would like to add The Honeymooners. Jackie Gleason and Art Carney at their best. Another is the Carol Burnett show.

OOPS! I just noticed that PapaS listed The Honeymooner. Great minds think alike!

It’s very apparent that a millennial wrote that article there are many great historical TV series missing… if you’re going to use the phrase ‘Of All Time’ you better do your homework better…

Respectfully, Two and a Half Men is one of the most under-rated.
24 is another game-changing series that is missing from both the IMDB list and the comments. I’m surprised, but my suspicion is that, as one commenter suggested, millennials created the list and comprises most of the commenters. Their selections are based more on what they have seen on reruns than reality. I’m happy someone added Yellowstone. Spot on! And let’s add Shameless, Banshee, Dexter, True Detective, Lessons in Chemistry, Jack Ryan, Reacher and Fargo!

i’m going to have to agree with the millennial comments…cuz WTFudge :man_shrugging: ??? No original Perry Mason…with the classic beauty Barbara Hale :heart_eyes:…or original The Untouchables…with what must have been the highest body count per episode for any crime drama EVER…

How about Alfred Hitchcock Presents

Later on, in 1962 the name changed to The Alfred Hitchcock Hour when they changed from the original half hour format to one hour shows. It has been critically acclaimed by every segment in the movie and television industry.

I loved House.

Another good current series, though it’s on paid TV, is the Bear.
