30 TV Shows

Sort by: Showing 30 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
A show that should have never been canceled


The best comedy show I've seen. If you hate laugh tracks and appreciate subtle humor you should give this show a try. Deadwood and Firefly are my other favorite canceled shows.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 554 Average listal rating (344 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 8.6
Monster (2004)
A show that you wish more people watched


The only other psychological thrillers I like more than Monster are Vertigo and M (it was that great and suspenseful for me).

There are some mysterious elements to the series, but it's never cliché or boring. Monster is oftentimes emotional and poignant, and it's a journey worth experiencing.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 1300 Average listal rating (888 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.9
Cowboy Bebop (1998)
A show everyone should watch


Cowboy Bebop is very enjoyable even if you don't appreciate anime too much. Cowboy Bebop is an extremely fun space western and if you have any interest in anime and bounty hunters it's worth a look.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 1870 Average listal rating (1246 ratings) 8.5 IMDB Rating 9
Your Favorite TV Genre – Space Western


Definitely recommend if you like Cowboy Bebop and vice-versa.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 338 Average listal rating (182 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.5
Mushishi (2005)
Your 2nd favorite TV Genre – Anime


Mushi-Shi is my favorite fantasy show.
Episode 1
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 320 Average listal rating (141 ratings) 8.9 IMDB Rating 9
The Decalogue (2010)
Favorite mini series - Dekalog


Don't be put off by the Christian themes. I'm an atheist and this is one of my favorite films (second to Greed). The film series can be viewed as an agnostic series, like the films of Bergman and Bresson, or probably more accurately almost agnostic like the films of Tarkovsky.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 254 Average listal rating (130 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 8.5
Dekalog I (1989)
Most favorite episode of your favorite t.v show.


I am the Lord your God; you shall have no other gods before me.
I hate the opinion that 'if x doesn't move you, you're not human', but if this film doesn't move you at all I don't know what to say.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 87 Average listal rating (54 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.6
Dekalog VIII (1990)
Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show.


You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 1180 Average listal rating (671 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 9.3
Your favorite show that isn't a mini-series


The Wire convinced me that TV shows can be great art, although I prefer films.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 330 Average listal rating (240 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
Viva La Bam (2003)
A show you hate
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 716 Average listal rating (528 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.9
Best scene/episode ever - In the Pale Moonlight


Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power. - Ben Franklin

I love how DS9 confronted moral uncertainty and wasn't as tied down to the dogma of the well intention-ed but flawed prime directive as TNG or Voyager. In the Pale Moonlight makes the audience question if we want to be in the dark about the actions of our government.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 96 Average listal rating (84 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.2
FLCL (2000)
A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving


Fooly Cooly isn't too weird like I expected; it's a cute coming of age story and undeniably fun.
Episode 1
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 3541 Average listal rating (2383 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.6
Dexter (2006)
A show that disappointed you and the most annoying characters


The majority of the show is about Dexter and the killers, which is very entertaining, but almost everything else is filler material. Think about it this way, would combining the events that happened to the supporting characters make anything more than a mediocre show? Would you watch that show?
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 1315 Average listal rating (977 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.6
Hey Arnold! (1996)
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 944 Average listal rating (701 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
Favorite childhood show

Rocko's Modern Life is an insightful show for kids, with many instances of black humor.


One of my favorite episodes makes fun of the show.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 6046 Average listal rating (4753 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.7
Favorite male character - Bart Simpson


Homer's great, but I prefer the Bart episodes over the Homer episodes.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 723 Average listal rating (443 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.1
Favorite female character

Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 2250 Average listal rating (1559 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.9
True Blood (2008)
Your guilty pleasure show



I might stop watching if Russell Edgington, my favorite character, is killed off.
Mr. Saturn's rating:

Favorite title sequence

Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 443 Average listal rating (239 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8.2
Best t.v show cast


Six Feet Under has the better ensemble cast but they can't beat Al Pacino and Meryl Streep.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 516 Average listal rating (338 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.3
Queer as Folk (2000)
Favorite kiss (NSFW)

Favorite relationship


John Kricfalusi made it clear in his adult party cartoon that they're a gay couple.
People who added this item 1809 Average listal rating (1207 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.8
Twin Peaks (1990)
Favorite Pilot


It's a shame David Lynch wasn't as involved in the series after this episode.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 1795 Average listal rating (1158 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.7
Favorite Finale (spoilers)


Best quote (spoilers)


I love this speech. Even if you're judged, that's no reason or excuse to not live the life you want.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 55 Average listal rating (20 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 6.9
A show you plan on watching (old or new)

OMG WTF? Season finale


In the series finale a puppet asks people on the street 'What's wrong with TV?' in order to make compelling television; it was a surprisingly existential episode.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
Favorite non-fiction show or mini-series

Mr. Saturn's rating:
First t.v show obsession


The first ten seasons would make The Simpsons the greatest show ever; the show lost some if its charm when the show switched to digital animation, and slowly the writing became less funny and less touching.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 3453 Average listal rating (2324 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 9.2
Current t.v show obsession and saddest character death (spoilers)
