Hannibal (2013)
Hugh Dancy is so Great in this show. Best version of the Will Graham character. Hannibal Lecter is probably one of the hardest roles to make your own after Hopkins. I was glad to see that Mads Mikkelsen did it an did it so well. Laurence Fishburne also made the Best Jack Crawford version in this one. Eddie Izzard was great in a smaller role. The atmosphere is dark and the visuals can be really gruesome but awesome.
Update: Watched the third and final season and that was really great and that ending... might just be my favorite moment on any tv-series now. The show is visually just amazing and it's sad thing that NBC ended it. Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde was really great addition to the 3rd season.

Breaking Bad (2008)
I basically binge watched this series through in few weekends. Had to wait for the ending (second part of season 5).

This is just so good, Malcom's dad just overpowers anyone on screen like Heisenberg does in the meth business.

The arc that Walter White has in this series is just so amazing. Bryan Cranston has really risen in my favorite actor list with this show, and some of the work he's done since (especially Godzilla where they really under used him). This series is filled so great and memorable characters and lines. Skinny Pete a and Badger were my favorite part of the series finale.

They're minerals, Marie

This show hooked me in so fast with it's writing and especially with the two leads. So good work by Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

Second season: (I still have finished it, couple episodes left) Is not as good as the first one was but I liked it too. It was different and the cast is good.

Firefly (2002)
I haven't watched that much sci-fi stuff but I think I will and propably will compare everything with this series. The cast is just great and watched this through almost in one sitting. Last episode was watched after some sleepy times.

I watched this when it first showed in here in 2002 I believe. Fell in love with it and the cast at that time (I was eleven at the time) The interviews at the beginning add so much to the series.

One of the only series that is sitting on my dvd tower.

This is just perfect war drama.

Fargo (2014)
This show really surprised me. Great writing and the cast is just awesome.

Billy Bob Thornton was so great as Malvo. So are Allison Tolman and Martin Freeman.

They've managed to get the feeling of the Coen brothers' film so good in this series.

Justified (2010)
Raylan Givens is just so good character and Olyphant is perfect actor to play him. Boyd Crowder is awesome too. Really looking forward to watch more of this series. Characters and writing is so good. The banter between Raylan and others is such so great to follow.

Oz (1997)
My first times watching this were when I really young kid, and really only remembered Augustus Hill, Adebisi and Keller biting that one dude's dick off :D. Gotta love that fucking small TV in my own room. Watched the series again when I was bit older few years back. The best part of this show is that you never knew who of the characters that you liked (and there were many) was going to be beaten to death with dumbbells, or shanked or just masoned inside the prison walls :D

My favorite character was always Ryan O'Reily who was one of the worst people inside the Oz' walls. Still sad that Cyril died

Spaced (1999)
Edgar Wright directing, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and co. starring it. This is basically their thing 1.0, and the Cornetto Trilogy made better.

MArk Heap, Jessica Hynes (co-creator) and Julia Deakin and some other regular faces from Wright&Pegg-movies are just so funny in this.

I always though that this is a Sci-fi show because the finnish name... Avaruuden tuntua/Feeling of the space :d.

That name was one of the reason I didn't see this sooner than last autumn (2013) after watching it through by myself, I watched it throught with my little brother and then with a friend (we had movie marathon with this + Cornetto-movies and in the middle we had Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums :d which was just on TV and neither of us had seen it then) Some of the references (mainly british television stuff) I didn't get, but most of it's such good stuff.

If you haven't seen this but like anything this group has done you should be already watching this.

Deadwood (2004)
This was just so good and it was sad that it ended like it did.

Really liked the acting and writing (I noticed that I've written this almost in everything on this list)

Al Swearangen was a scene stealer... but the others were great too.
Deadwood's uncivilized town was just so good setting too.

Conan (2010)
Didn't get to see the Tonight Show with Coco that much because I was serving at army at the time. And this show doesn't air in TV here in Finland anymore. But there is Youtube.

Conan is just so funny.

Would get higher with better pacing. I am not expecting a zombie movie pace(That way they would ran out of people after half a season) like i think most of the people that has problems with it, it's a drama series with zombies.

The effects are pretty cool and the cast is great too.

They've done the rundown post-apocalyptic world fine, and I like it as a setting.

* After few not that great seasons I've really started to like the new season more and more.

QI (2003)
So funny game show - series. Every time I visit parent's home I check BBC Entertainment channel for this show.

Great guests and Stephen Fry and Alan Davies as regular panelist are just so great.

I have also watched episodes from Youtube.

The cast is great and this is just one of those series that is just so fun (sometimes sad) to watch.

The last season will be so good (unless they really just completely shit the bed) really looking forward how it will end... a bit scared too :d

The characters and the soundtrack are probably my favorite things in this series. Kurt Sutter and the other writers are doing good job to keep the spectators on the edge of their seat.

The X Files (1993)
I watched this when I was kid and was scared shitless so many times. Watched this through some years back now, and it's just so awesome.

Near the end quality dropped a bit without Duchovny. But still great series.

Psych (2006)
Funny series... Gus and Shawn have so great chemistry, Problem watching it here is that it is shown shittiest times... Really need to watch the season through properly sometime.

Great cameos i.a Danny Glover, Carl Weathers Gary Elwes.

Also the 'theme' episodes are awesome.

Unlike The Simpsons and Family Guy this show has only gotten better by time and so it's the humor. Parker and Stone are just so awesome and that's why South Park is my favorite animated series.

Juvenile humor and some pretty gross stuff. So perfect. Obviously most of it's written/fixed but still this is just good.
In every episode Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice has these contests with each other, this leads to funny.

Episodes should be on youtube so you should check them out.

List of my favorite shows on TV. I'm pretty sure that I forgot something and I will add to the list if I see something good.

Since this was made when I was pretty sleepy there is probably some grammar errors/typos...try to survive past them
