    DJ, at one point you said you could name "20-50" better shows. I maintain that 50 would be a major reach. You're right that people tend to overpraise things and/or call them "best ever" too easily. But if you're saying 50 shows are better, then I think that you yourself have lost perspective and are exaggerating in the other direction. There's no denying it's a great show.

    Thanks for the advise, I'll take it. I had ignored the suggestions that tell me to read'em for a long time and I think it is time I make up my mind and get to the 1st one that has *sniff* Eddard Stark.

    True Detective is killer. Me and my wife are about to watch the last I think, 8th episode tonight. It is becoming one of my leading shows too. I already love Woody but Rust is doing an amazing job. And again, as I've said about GoT, this one also has this atmosphere I was talking about. It drags you in. It's so professionally built.

    I'll try to make time and watch the other ones you've mentioned. Heard a lot about'em. Curious and excited to watch.

    the list of 20-50 depends on what do we see as "better".
    better as in what i enjoy most eg i like bansee more.

    or do we say better as in overal quality, then a show like friends which i dont like comes on that list

    if we go on popularity/votes from imdb users(one to 10 voting system).
    we live in a world where popularity>quality.
    the internet has madeit so

    https://www.imdb.com/search/title?num_votes=5000,&sort=user_rating,desc&title_type=tv_series
    1.breaking bad
    2.Game of Thrones
    3.True detective
    4.The Wire
    5.Sherlock
    6.Sopranos

    game of thrones is second after breaking bad.
    do i agree with that list?
    anywho do you think breaking bad and game of thrones are top 2 shows ever.
    also true detecive only had 8 episodes.

    even though i reallyr elaly really liked the first season. does it deserve to be number 3 after only 8 episodes?

    fact remains i think got is overrated!

    My God, DJ, allow me to quote myself from a few posts ago:

    So obviously I don't agree with the IMDB list. I agree with you. But let's not pretend GoT isn't really good.

    Wow, dutch. I didn't realize I was wrong in my love for the show. Thank you for coming into this thread to put the show down and show us the error in our ways.

    "Average in quality"?

    Sorry, I just ain't seein' that. It's way better than "average." Your own personal preference is your own personal preference, but if you look at the quality of writing, directing, acting, cinematography, set and costume design, etc., "average" just isn't an accurate assessment.

    Do you like the fantasy genre?

    If you do, yes.

    If you don't, no.

    My sister doesn't like fantasy, her boyfriend, or my mom. They all love GoT. Give it a shot kkk, even if you don't like the genre. It is slow the first couple episodes but it picks up. WAY up.
