    I've put together a master list of the best shows I know (in no particular order and I might have forgotten some). I'm generally only including cable and GAOT ("Golden Age of Television" ) shows (prestige dramas and comedies). Any additions that anyone can think of?

    The Americans
    Mr Robot
    The Wire
    The Sopranos
    Breaking Bad
    Six Feet Under
    Stranger Things
    Halt and Catch Fire
    Master of None
    Game of Thrones
    Bojack Horseman
    Masters of Sex
    The 100
    Orange is the New Black
    Boardwalk Empire
    True Detective
    In The Flesh

    Orange is the New Black, Boardwalk Empire, True Detective

    Yes, good call! I knew I'd missed some. I will add them into the list. I think True Detective's second season was middling, but it's first season entitles it to a place. Same again for Boardwalk Empire, I think it became a bit meandering but deserves a place for its ambition, excellent cinematography and their commitment to really depicting a period of time that hasn't had attention before on the small screen (also would have been very expensive to produce). And Orange is very good, onto the list it goes

    Oh and I forgot In The Flesh, I will add it.
