That list was trash.

Agreed. Westworld at #3 seems a little crazy.

The Wire not breaking the top ten is ridiculous too.

no venture brothers.. freaking overrated trash

Just finished watching it yesterday. It really didn't do that much for me, and I don't get why people have been freaking out about it.

Shows with mysteries tend to build RABID internet communities.

Don't tell me what I can't do

I really really enjoyed it but everything between the premiere and the finale was totally unnecessary to the plot.

Agreed. I especially disliked the goofy surgeon guys - we never got much background on them and they were disappointingly one dimensional throughout. Ah well, it was entertaining.

Amen. Westworld was four good episodes stretched out over 10 episodes. And it's way too early to make a call on Rick and Morty.

Bull. 30 Rock is better than Parks and Rec-also a good show-but nowhere near 30 Rock.

Why is it so hard for me to find this opinion? I tell people that PandR is not as good as 30Rock and I get crazy looks.

I honestly think its because 30 Rock's jokes usually have two layers, the obvious joke and then the harder to detect but equally (if not more funny) joke. Whereas PandR is great but the jokes are pretty upfront.

For instance, in the episode where Liz and Pete think Tracy can't read(S1E05). After Tracy 'admits' to being illiterate he get's on the elevator then pulls out a newspaper and says "damn George Wills just gets more and more conservative". Most viewers will just see Tracy with a newspaper and laugh thinking Tracy just fooled Liz and Pete. But the real joke is that not only can Tracy read, he's so well read that he can discern that George Will, a real life political pundit, is becoming more conservative.

True. Also how come there's no Puerto Ricans in Star Trek?

Parks and Rec is meant for people who like the Office. There's nothing wrong with that, but, let's be honest, those are both shows meant for light friendly entertainment. There's not much clever writing.

Here's a link to the /r/television post. Thought it was a funny coincidence.

Geez, didn't know Reddit, or at least /r/television was so male. I'd be curious of the gender balance of this sub.

I'm a dude. But I love 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
