    This list is … okay. There are some superb inclusions (The Leftovers,Girls,The Good Fight,Good Place) but there’s a lot to disagree with. And some huge exclusions.

    12 Six Feet Under (2001-2005)

    Well-deserved! The peak HBO along with The Wire.

    28 Friday Night Lights (2006-2011)

    87 The Comeback (2005-2014)

    Lisa Kudrow’s dominance!

    I love Fleabag, but no way it should be on TOP 10 of greatest shows in the century.

    Arrested Development should be higher, but I get that the last two seasons probably brought the show down.

    I think this is a pretty decent list tbf. Loved the Dark mention. This show should get more love.
