1. Big Little Lies. . . Also nice to see a certain Deadwood character as the psychologist. 

Yes! That's where I recognized that actress from! I knew she was familiar but never bothered to look her up. Way different than her part on Deadwood.

Big Little Lies (bumped this up to #1, loved the show so much. The cast were fantastic, nicest surprise in terms of quality tv this year)

Legion S1

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S2 

The Last Kingdom S2

I, Zombie S3

13 Reasons Why

Dear White People (I binged the whole series today, it's not very long. I might come back and change this once I've thought about it some more)

[insert big gap here. Huge drop in quality between the top of my list and bottom]

A Series of Unfortunate Events S1

Riverdale S1

Taboo S1

Santa Clarita Diet S1

Iron Fist S1

 

DNF - Guerrilla, Santa Clarita Diet (wow, I had this on my list before and checking Netflix I still had three episodes left. I don't think I can face going back into that mess).

It really rekindled my love for Nicole Kidman, that's for sure :D

The reason I've only put up two shows thus far for my top ten --Black Sails and the Expanse-- is because i expect for the remaining eight to come later in the year.... Sense 8.... GoT.... American Gods.... Outlander.... the Defenders.... the man in the high castle... house of Cards.... stranger Things.... Mr Robot... Outcast.... the Last Kingdom.... Punisher.... Narcos.... Quarry...  Preacher.... or Peaky Blinders... and that's not taking into consideration that there might be something that I am presently unaware of....

Shows like orphan Black, the Americans, Handmaids Tale, a series of unfortunate events, Legion etc.... were/are all terrific, and could creep up into my top ten if others falter... but probably not.... the one that has the best shot --for me-- is Better Call Saul....

No one is stopping you from making a longer list, and just bumping everything down as new shows come along. That's the point of this thread.

  1. The Americans Season 5
  2. Expanse Season 2
  3. Sense8 Season 2
  4. Big Little Lies
  5. Sherlock Season 4
  6. The Good Fight Season 1
  7. The White Princess
  8. Homeland Season 6
  9. Voltron Season 2
  10. The Big Bang Theory Season 10
  11. Iron Fist Season 1
  12. Grey's Anatomy Season 13

 

All right, two more shows added this year. Sense8 is a masterpiece and one of the shows that when you watch them, you know is written by the most of decent human beings. It is action-packed with amazing characters and wonderful message across the board. On the other hand, The White Princess is the usual Phillipa Gregiory soap opera, but Starz made it look not so bad.

Updates:

  1. Black Sails
  2. The Expanse
  3. Legion
  4. The Last Kingdom - excellent season; Agents of SHIELD may overtake it, depending on its finale.
  5. Agents of SHIELD
  6. Grimm
  7. Star Wars Rebels
  8. Homeland
  9. Sherlock
  10. Elementary
  11. Iron Fist
  12. iZombie - not quite as good as the previous seasons, but if they keep to the formula of building up to the season finale, it could rise in the ranks.
  13. The Walking Dead
  14. The Blacklist
  15. Brooklyn-99 - continues to be fun and silly
  16. Designated Survivor
  17. Arrow
  18. Supergirl
  19. Legends of Tomorrow - could not resist the silliness, so got caught up on Netflix; season 2 was better than what Flash is now, and about the same as Supergirl
  20. The Flash
  21. The Big Bang Theory
  22. Taboo

This list is getting more difficult to alter. Some of these, particularly near the top, are really neck-and-neck at the minute. 

Interesting to note I've watched way more comedies this year than I usually do.
