Default Top 10 TV Series

April 16th, 2022, 23:27
In no particular order:
  • Dark
  • Katla
  • Stranger Things
  • Black books
  • Beforeigners
  • Black Adder
  • The Marples and the Poirots
  • Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister

pibbuR who will edit in more if he can remember other favourites.

PS. This Easter I watched "The Magpie Murders", which I found to be very clever. A bit early to say if it will be a favourite, but definitely a runner-up. DS.

EDIT:Thanks to Corwin for reminding me of the minister.

Interesting choice. Some might call it a hidden camera documentary ;-)

Holy shit, you are right. Now I can not remember if I ever saw season 2. I was sure there was only 1 season and then it got cancelled. I need to look into that.

There still aren't any pure fantasy dramas that are better, though I realize that isn't saying much considering how bad most fantasy TV series are.

Sadly, you're right. On both counts.

I can understand the love for GOT. But it's not my cup of tea, probably because fantasy in general is not my cup of tea.

pibbuR who likes LOTR (books and films and MMO) and may/may not like the upcoming TV series.

PS. Fantasy is a bit like comedy and horror (and (real) football matches): Some good ones, lots of very plain vanilla mediocrity (correct English?), which makes finding the good ones difficult. (possibly unless you follow the Watch) DS.

Seems like there's a fair amount of reasonable fantasy shows going on right now, but none are completed yet so I suppose they wouldn't belong in a thread like this. The Witcher, Wheel of Time, Shadow and Bone, His Dark Materials, Carnival Row… Though it's quite unlikely that any of those end up being better than GoT.

Season 1 of Twilight Zone is vastly superior to season 2. I did hour long reviews of both for Youtube but they were both removed by CBS on copywrite grounds.

I'd happily watch any episode from any of the original 5 seasons. I love anthology shows. Anthology horror is fairly common, but anthology sci-fi is much rarer. I should have put Love,Death + Robots on my list.

Even the hour long experiment for season 4? Oh wow, that's quite some dedication to the format.
