    I thought that about season 1 but it gets better and better I think. Definitely more of a slow burner though. Can see why some people don’t love it.

    Given the farce that was the final season of Game of Thrones, I think that’s been bumped off the top spot for me.

    The Leftovers is probably the best I’ve watched.

    Really quite impressive how they managed to fall apart in the last season. Somewhat similar to Battlestar Galactica for me: mostly awesome until the end.

    I think Breaking Bad was the only consistent long running show I've enjoyed. And maybe the Wire. Tons of other great shows with much shorter season histories though!

    Tie between Breaking Bad and The Leftovers for top spot. After that...


    Dark, The Sopranos, Mindhunter, The Shield, Stranger Things, Ozark, 11.22.63.

    The absolute shitshow that was GOT final season or two takes it out of the equation.

    One of the most up and down shows I've seen. Started so well, got worse, got better again and then the last season was terrible.

    As has been said it's very up and down but keeps me entertained. Sopranos is obviously a higher quality show but the entertainment factor just isn't there sometimes.

    Sopranos, GOT bar the last season, which I still enjoyed to an extent, The Wire, Peaky Blinders is up there for me now as well, Breaking Bad. Loved Hannibal season 1 and 2 as well.

    Ones like Sons of Anarchy and that wouldn’t be anywhere near my list. Cheesy as *.

    Series 3 of Sopranos is where is starts gettin right good. If you don’t like it after that you may as well chuck it.

    Sons of Anarchy is pish btw.

    Better Call Saul is underrated, it may not have the huge exciting moments of Breaking Bad but it never has a stupid episode either. I really like the character build up and you feel like you know the characters more so it means more watching it. Saul and his brother rivalry were some amazing acting moments I also much prefer Mike character in Better Call Saul than in Breaking Bad.

    Luther in terms of overall quality throughout

    House of Cards (american version) was very good - til spacey crashed and burnt leaving the producers to cobble together a * finish which made GOT look to have had a good ending tbh.
