Game of Thrones
Uh... I have to pick 5? Umm... Seriously that’s all I watch. Not a big TV watcher.

2

The Wire
Breaking Bad
The Americans
Boardwalk Empire
Ray Donovan

For fun:
Burn Notice
Leverage
Stranger Things
Episodes
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

I'm happy to see someone else include The Wire on their list!

@orange_girl IMO the best TV series ever.

@Byrdsfan A friend of mine actually wrote for TV in Hollywood many years ago and she knows TV. When she told me it was one of the best series she'd seen, I watched it immediately!

  1. Parks & Recreation
  2. The Office
  3. Brooklyn 99

  1. Battlestar Gallactica
  2. Stranger Things

Love The Amazing World of Gumball. I think they hit on some profound subjects, and they're always just so, so creative.

@shebaloney
I know!! So funny and all kinds of uncomfortable. Today, Gumball caught his Dad leading a secret double life—cross-dressing as Blanche from the Golden Girls.

No particular order, and this is more “what I’ve watched recently” and is sitcom-heavy, but so be it.

Letterkenny: rapid-fire timing, and available on Hulu recently.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: It’s not 30 Rock, but similar absurdity and outrageous characters.

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - Well written and well acted, even the worst characters have moments where they are sympathetic.

Drunk History - every now and then, you might learn something from this, even as they work through the booze.

Mystery Science Theatre 3000 - Working through the new series now, but I still have my favorites from the original series.

Drunk History - I love that, but often forget about it being on.
Thanks for mentioning it.

Loved Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
