It’s 20 years old but not enough love for Band of Brothers these days. Such a great series.

It is, undoubtedly, a Top 10 non-documentary show of all time. And further more, whatever the shows above and below it are on those list, Band of Brothers is the reason they exist.

I always forget about it when I’m talking about all time great shows, which is weird since it’s easily in my top-10, if not top-5.

I think because it feels like it’s in a category of it’s own almost. Like, mini series are super popular these days.. but in 2000, feel like they were few and far between?

I'd add True Detective, Succession and The Sopranos to this list

True Detective has an asterisk to pretend season two never existed.

Oh I forgot that The Leftovers was HBO but it’s definitely worth the watch. Three perfect seasons of television.

Best short series of all time. Shows what can be accomplished if the show runner has the balls to tell the story and stop when it's done. Notice no one is mentioning Westworld, but the first season was perfect and if they had stopped there would've been my pick for the best single season show ever.

I only came here to write your first suggestion. All of the shows you listed are fantastic but The Leftovers has a special place in my heart. One of those shows you wish you could watch for the first time again. Carrie Coon did an amazing job.

Boardwalk Empire'd fit right in here

The Larry sanders show is a classic. A 90’s time capsule but still funny.

The fact that The Sopranos is not on this list invalidates the list completely for me.
