One very nice list you have here. Lots of HBO, but one queston; where did you forget The Sopranos? You should definitely check it. I'm kinda surprised that you have here shows like V (2009) and The Event. I liked those, but seems that anyone else don't.

The Wire! The Wire! The Sopranos! Six Feet Under! Also, Arrested Development is way too low
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 18 17:28
Soon! Soon! Soon! Didn't liked Six Feet Under and stopped watching after season 1. C'mon, Arrested Development wasn't that good or funny, for me the 52 spot for AD is perfect.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 19 2:08
'Sherlock' is quite good, I think you should add it, too.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 19 2:17
I add just TV Shows that I've seen every episode of, and I'm not too much into those kind of case/episode TV Shows like Sherlock is.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 21 17:48
I like Dexter. But i think this TV show is overrated. First season was excelent, but next seasons are worse and worse. Unfortunately. (But not so bad like Prison Break after first season :-) )
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Sep 18 17:25
outsourced and dead like me were both such good shows. they were cancelled way too soon. modern family is a riot..
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Sep 19 18:52
Too bad a lot of good shows get canceled and the terrible shows continue to run for years.

Your choices for annoying characters on Walking Dead are spot on!
