    Best TV Show of past 15 years

    What do you guys think is the best tv fiction of past 15 years? The options are just the shows I have seen* that I thought were pretty good. Only including shows that have finished.

    Personally I think it was The Sopranos.


    *With exception to the Shield, I've only seen a few episodes, but I've heard it's thoroughly good and I intend to watch the whole thing soon.

    Where is 'The Big Bang Theory' or 'Two And A Half Men' or 'How I Met Your Mother'??? Maybe u have not included comedies. LOLs. And even 'Friends' which is over now.
    Coming to serious ones, I think 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Revenge'.
    So, I go for others.
    House is actually good but others was more tempting.

    I only included shows that are no longer airing, ie, they've finished, the show is over. There are quite a few shows that had an awesome front 9, but the back 9 was abysmal, lowering the overall quality of the show. I kinda put Lost in that camp, but a lot of people still liked the 2nd half of that show so I included it.

    If I did include shows that are still running, like Himym and tbbt, both shows I watch, I still wouldn't have included them. Maybe I'm biased against sitcoms or comedies, but when I watch a tv show I want to experience the full gamut of emotions. The one thing about the shows I included is that even though they are dramas or sci fi, they're also incredibly funny on top of all that dramatic good stuff and pathos. There are few non-comedy moments in HIMYM and pretty much none in tbbt.

    That bias aside, even for what they are, I just don't think they're that good. The past few seasons of HIMYM have been pretty poor, Ted feels like the friend of the main character instead of the primary agent for whom the show is supposed to be built around, searching for the titular character the show is named after. Barney and Robin have been pretty much stripped of their awesome and watered down so that they work as a couple. While Marshal and Lily went from being an incredibly sweet endearing couple with some depth to this utterly irrational farcial pairing who are just there to create oddball comedy moments. The first 3/4 seasons of HIMYM were awesome, but the show has been steadily treading downwards towards mediocrity for a while now.

    As for TBBT, at least HIMYM had the first few seasons, tbbt has never been awesome. It's enjoyable, and charming, but utterly predictable and incredibly formulaic, so obviously well inside its comfort zone with no interest venturing out into unchartered territory.

    I don't know if I just wrote an essay or had a shit.
