Sometimes I hate this site for people's inability to follow simple, idiot-proof guidelines.

Well you cant come on here and go "These are the best TV shows of the past decade rank them and dont debate that!!!"


If he wanted those specific shows ranked he couldve just said "rank these shows"

Well shite if we can add The Shield and Boardwalk Empire I'll edit to include.

The whole “as provided” part pretty much means you suck at reading.

This. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Rolling Stones of TV shows. Hopefully someone understands that analogy.

Can't say best shows of the last decade and leave off two of the most critically acclaimed shows ever: Arrested Developement and Friday Night Lights.

I don't think Firefly should be on this list of ranking great shows. The few episodes we got are awesome, but it didn't last long enough to deserve to be in these type of ranking threads, much like Freaks & Geeks.

That said:

Dexter
Firefly
The Sopranos
Game of Thrones
Breaking Bad
The Wire
Mad Men
Justified

Game of Thrones is an awesome current show, but it should be no where near the top of the list as of now.

I think people are still judging it based on what the books achieved and not the show. Its only the 3rd season.

ETA:

Lost
Sherlock
The Wire
Breaking Bad
Sopranos
Battlestar Galactica
Luther
Mad Men
The Shield
Justified
Dexter
Boardwalk Empire

Sopranos. Groundbreaking, maybe, bot so boring.

I think Sopranos gets a bit too much credit for being the groundbreaking series. First off, the first HBO drama is Oz, which is every bit as challenging and groundbreaking as Sopranos (well, let's pretend the 5th season didn't happen). Sopranos had the good fortune to be groundbreaking AND popular. It caught the lightning in the bottle.

But as far as the proto-show which "changed everything about TV", that show is clearly Twin Peaks. Without Twin Peaks, the Golden Era of TV doesn't happen. At least not the same way. I like Sopranos, but I think it should be judged on its merits rather than getting bonus points for creating the Modern Era. Unless we're going to give the same credit to Homicide, Twin Peaks, Oz, and let's be honest, the Simpsons.

was this just before most peoples time? Most people are all "Sopranos this, Sporanos that" without ever mentioning OZ. OZ was awesome, sans the last season and all the gay sex.

not gonna put Deadwood and Rome in there?


These are both tough to rate but for different reasons.

I'd put the first season of Rome up against anything ever produced, including the The Wire. There's a big falloff midway of the second season but they did the best they could to wrap it up after the cancellation. But even in the rushed second season it was probably the best casting in TV history. Every single actor nailed it.

Deadwood is just such a unique show; with the brilliant dialogue and the darker than dark characters which were mostly based on real life villains. And of course the WTF moment of all WTF moments when they ended the show to concentrate on John From Cinncinati. Again, what the frick was that?

Firefly, seeing as how that and Sopranos are the only shows I've seen on this list.

that's what gets me. Oz debuted in 1997. Sopranos in 1999. hell, it was the success of Oz that allowed HBO to greenlight another drama series. Had Oz failed, Sopranos never happens and we never get the HBO run of shows.

The Wire (by a mile - dont get me started)
>
>
Breaking Bad - new levels of creativity and originality
The Sopranos - launched the golden age of television
Mad Men - so much greatness
Game of Thrones - epic
>
>
>
Justified - lots of fun, without the profundity and larger implications of the above shows
Firefly - lots of fun to watch, well made, see above
>
>
>
>
Dexter - couple entertaining seasons, had potential - writers got very lazy and sacrificed meaning and credibility for spectacle. It is barely worth watching now.

No love for Homeland in this thread?

I haven't watched all of the provided shows in the OP, but my list would be as follows (sorry OP):

Game of Thrones
Homeland
The Sopranos
Boardwalk Empire
Mad Men
Dexter

I have been meaning to get into Breaking Bad, I just haven't had the time. I watched most of the first season and it was incredible but I haven't seen enough to make it on my list. The same goes with The Wire.

Based on those

The Wire
GoT
Breaking Bad
Dexter (Up to season 4)
Justified
Mad Men (I watched up to season 3 or 4 I forget when I stopped)

I never watched Firefly and I only watched The Sopranos here and there.

My personal #2 is The Shield right behind The Wire.
