Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

Shows like Firefly: Bingeable One (or two) Season Wonders

Most shows that get cancelled after a season or two deserve to be relegated to the ash heap. A few great shows, however, never made it past season two, leaving tons of disappointed fans in their wake. The good news is that you can binge them in a day or two.

Shows like Homeland: Best Showtime Shows

Over 500 scripted TV series were produced in the US in 2019, but quantity does not guarantee high quality. Showtime, like HBO, has consistently produced outstanding television for years. This list rounds up some of the network's greatest hits (and a few misses).

Shows like Fleabag: Best Dramedies

The ancient Greeks divided their plays into comedies and tragedies, but the smiling and frowning masks are more extremes of a spectrum than binary variables, and some of the best TV shows of the past two decades, like Fleabag, Atlanta, Succession, and Shameless, find humor in deep pain and poignancy in funny situations.

Best Comedy TV

A round-up of the best live action comedies, ranked by ratings, popularity, awards, and influence on other comedies--including the full range of RomComs, dark comedies, sitcoms, and more.

Shows like Nashville: High Drama in the Music Industry

Although these shows cut across hip-hop, country & western, and rock, they all explore the dramatic side of the music business (and of course have great soundtracks).

Shows Like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Shows You Sing the Next Day

Only sitcoms with songs you're guaranteed to hum the next day have made it on to this list, from 'Flight of the Concords' to 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' - word to the wise, you may want to sing 'I Gave You a UTI' quietly, and in the privacy of your own home.

Shows Like the Office: You Thought Your Workplace Was Bad?

To achieve the height of irony, watch these workplace sitcoms at work, while your stupid Baby-Boomer boss thinks you're 'formulating a social media strategy', whatever that means.

Shows like Big Love: TV Tearjerkers

These dramas are sure to get you tearing up, crying, or downright balling. So grab a box of Kleenex before you start streaming.

Lighthearted Ensemble Comedies

If you are looking for cynical humor, look elsewhere--these shows feature goodhearted characters with great chemistry and limited snark.
