    The Mr.Robot snub should be criminal.Also Veep should be the highest ranked comedy.

    Surprised a certain Doctor didn’t make an appearance.

    A very annoying young man, who loves cinema. 🙂

    Westworld is deserving of a mention because of its first two seasons alone. Flawed but still better than the insipid, shallow works being pushed often. There are worse things to focus on in that list imo.

    The Sopranos not being listed is weird because most of the show aired in the 2000s..

    Desperate Housewives is often forgotten in that type of lists when it’s the reason shows like BLL exist in the first place

    The lack of Olive Kitteridge isn’t sitting right with me… and also Line of Duty at 27 and Hannibal at 97 is just wrong 💀 it should be the opposite (although 27 would still be too low for Hannibal).

    For Your Consideration:

    Carrie Coon, ‘The Gilded Age’ (no I haven’t seen it, but we have no choice but to stan anyway)

    Same with Buffy.

    The spillage! I don’t understand how you could put one of the most consistent shows on the list so low and then put a show where only three of its six seasons are on an all time level (and one of them is downright terrible) so high lol.

    Love the mentions for Halt and Catch Fire, The Good Fight and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The omissions of You’re the Worst, Broad City and Better Things are really sad tho, guess these shows will never get the recognition they deserve.

    Olive was the first snub that jumped out at me. Bad, bad omission.

    Some of these choices feel more descriptive of a list that would be more aptly titled “100 Television Series of the 21st Century with the greatest impact”.

    There are some inspired (and underrated) inclusions here like The Good FightHannibal (I haven’t seen it but I’m sure Halt and Catch Fire too). But then there are shows like Black Mirror and Stranger Things and I like both of those shows but they really don’t stand on their own IMO for them to be included in such a list. And then there are shows with some downright terrible seasons.

    23 shows from HBO, even with the snubs of Olive Kitteridge, Barry, The Newsroom and Angels in America.

    I understand the criteria, but no Sopranos is weird!

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Fleebag making the top 5 is a joke! Curb should be in the top 3! It’s always sunny getting disrespected as usual…
