Best Shows on Television

L. Bravim
The list author says: "Everyone has an opinion about television. Some prefer comedies, others dramas. I prefer excellence. Below are my top 5 currently running series."
Homeland: Season 1
Homeland: Season 1
"Emmy's most recent winner for Best Drama is deserving in every way. The second season is turning out to be at least as good as the first, high praise for the best show on TV!"
Breaking Bad: Season 1
Breaking Bad: Season 1
"Cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned meth cook played by Bryan Cranston in one of the grittiest dramas on television. He's a worthy winner of three consecutive Best Actor Emmy Awards."
Shameless: Season 1
Shameless: Season 1
"A show that reminds the world poverty can have a white face. The Gallagher clan of Chicago is surviving, but only barely. The family is unique, gritty, and loaded with interesting characters. This is the most underrated series on the list."
Dexter: Season 1
Dexter: Season 1
"Some argue the series based on a Miami blood-spatter analyst and serial killer has gotten stale of late. Still, it is among the most ethically significant cop shows of all time."
The Big Bang Theory: Season 1
The Big Bang Theory: Season 1
"The only pure comedy on the list. It's not as big a hit as Two and a half Men, but for my money it's two and half times as funny, with or without Charlie Sheen. I rarely care for slapstick, and thankfully The Big Band Theory is free from the inane stupidity that predominates the tube. Among the funniest shows since Frasier and Seinfeld left the air."
