Welcome back, dear Community Challenge participants!
Most of us love spending time watching movies or TV series. And while in the past we used to wait for our favorite piece to come up on the cable, now various platforms like Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV, Amazon Prime, etc, are granting us freedom of choice. It's easier than ever to go back to some cherished old shows or discover something new every day 😉
We'd love to hear in the comments about your Must-sees and Bests of the best! List your Top Five TV series of all time, Top Three, or just one you can't recommend enough!
As usually, every participant will be granted a unique "TV Watcher" badge and get +100 bonus points. Let's build our Community TV watchlist together and have some fun, widening our horizons! 📺
Even though they are old and I watched way too many series since I think my favorite tv-shows are still Friends and the Stargate SG-1. I'm sure that I'm remembering them with rose-colored glasses though.
Looking at a bit more recent series I can recommend Sherlock, Arcane and The Mandalorian.
There are also some series where the first season was great, but that fell off afterwards, like Heroes, Westworld, Prison break and Dexter, but in regards to the above ones I liked all seasons.

Was not expecting to see Fringe on anyone's list!
Such a great show, completely underrated (at least, here in Portugal).
Watched it several times: always delivers!
I'm glad you like it too! - The first season always felt like separate episodes, but season 2 on wards created the overall arch and season had a arch, so it all fell into place and the build up was amazing! - I might start to re-watch it 😄
Oh you just unlocked some cool memories with mentioning "Fringe" 🙈 thank you! I used to love the show!
Of course, Friends!
So many options, my Plex library is way to big 🙂
I agree with @Mike_L on Friends and SG, though the rose-colored glasses part is probably right 🙂
For more recent and somewhat tech related I'd recommend Silicon Valley and Black Mirror, both are excellent I think. Also Scrubs I'd always recommend for good laughs.
"Sons of Scotland
What would you do without freedom?
Will you fight?
Fight and you may die,
Run and you will live,
At least a while...
And dying in your beds,
Many years from now, would you be willing to trade,
All the days from this day to that
For one chance just one chance
To come back here and tell our enemys
That you may take our lifes
But you'l never take our freedom"
On one hand, as a huge cinematography enthusiast myself, I feel like was born for this challenge. But on the other? It ought to be the toughest challenge of all -- how am I supposed to narrow down my list to only 1-3-5 favorite shows?
If I tried, thought, I'd have to go with:
That's a cool "workaround" 😄
Here is my list:
1.) Star Wars shows (I love Disney +)
2.) Star Trek
3.) Stranger Things
4.) Older shows - Friends, Seinfeld, Fraiser, Cheers
5.) Marvel TV Shows (See #1)
I watch a lot of shows and movies, here's some of those I can think of
Sorry guys I have long list of series. 😉
Fantasy and history lovers check out this list by streaming providers:
HBO max: Game of Thrones, House of the Dragons, Westworld, Raised by Wolves, Band of Brothers, Babylon Berlin
Netflix: Vikings, The Witcher, Peaky blinders, Narcos, Tabu, Vikings Valhalla
Amazon prime: The Lord of the Rings, The Wheel of time, The Legend of El Cid
Disney+: Mandalorian, Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, She Hulk, (Willow is coming)
We are liking a lot of same shows 🙂
Last week I met with Vader in the plaza ;-), I am going to send pica shortly.
Nice, let me show you my star wars pics
Same! I couldn't just get over with the ending and the only question I had left was why?
The Witcher! Of course, how could I forget the show based on the Polish source material 😁
A lot of good stuff in your recommendations, will add to my to-watch list!
This will be too difficult to narrow things down, but the latest show to grip my attention (get through the first 3 episodes to see if you'll like it) is Andor on Disney+.
If you're looking for a fun and quirky detective show, Castle is a big favorite of mine (starring Nathan Fillion). Brooklyn 99 is also a great show in a similar vein.
The Star Trek TOS, TNG, and Voyager were big pieces of my childhood, and the new Lower Decks animated comedy is perfect if you like poking fun at the Trek universe.
There's so many others to name, but I'll leave it at that for now!
Nine nine! 💪
What a great list 🙂
Oh, forgot about "detective" shows... For me, Castle and especially The Mentalist.
Let's not forget about Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It is a highly-rated detective show around my place. Still I need to watch that one but I heard a lot about it.
Both have a very special place in my heart! 😊
This is a great topic, to I'd highly recommend these binge worthy productions:
Locke and Key
The Tinder Swindler
Grace and Frankie
Only (M)urders in the Building
The Secrets of Sulphur Springs
I'm sure there is more but that's a great start 🙂
ooooo well... this is tough, in order
Westworld definitely #1, so sad it isn't getting its fifth and final season 😭
Avatar the last airbender
Breaking bad/better call Saul, so long but so worth it
The office (US)
Taskmaster, all global variations
British panel shows in general
I think thats it for favs, I'm not a huge TV fan
Lots of great shows listed in the previous comments! My list is a mix of TV shows and Docuseries:.
at least one person listed Arcane! Kudos! Do you play as well? 😄
Good to see the Age of Empires. I played a lot at my first workplace in the 90’s. After working hours we organized lan parties with pentium 100 and 14” crt. 😉
My top 5 of series of people generaly only i am watching animes.
- Young sheldon
- Midnight diner tokyo stories
- It's Okay to Not Be Okay
- Lie to Me
Now Tv series including anime series
- Susumiya Haruhi no Yutsu
- Kimetsu no Yaiba
- Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii
- Bonus: Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite
Why no one lists a great series of Casa de Papel aka "Money heist"?
Yes, Casa de Papel is one of my favorites, too!
Also, many of us have forgotten the Sherlock Holmes show and the movie. They both are extraordinary. Also, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr. are my favourite actors.
Sherlock BBC is such a great show (especially seasons 1-2)! I remember watching it as it was airing, trying to predict how it's going to end 😮 the suspense! Also agreed about the actors!
I almost forgot to mention the Chernobyl series. It was amazing. Thanks Daniel to share it.
Lot of memories came in my mind. I was 12 at that time and it was not so far from my city (800km / 500 miles). It was frightening for us. My my brother-in-law was born in this year. He was choosen with other hungarian new borns and he was examined year by year when he was kid (affected or not affected by the radiation). Luckily he is healthy.
Oh wow, thank you for sharing this part of your story with us! Being born after the tragedy, I didn't experience it first-hand, only the consequences, and it's quite insightful to see how different countries were managing that.
Band of Brother was really great, The Pacific also comes really close.
Chornobyl! Such a great show, but also a pretty accurate take on the tragedy that took place in my homeland. Watched it with tears in my eyes. Totally agree with the duality of men being the central theme of it and showing it is perfectly executed!
So, I'm not going to put a lot of them, as I love most of the suggestions above. And there are also a lot of them to discover?
The remaining list of mine is the following:
MacGyver was one of my favorites from my childhood, everyone who saw it was eager to get a Victorinox.
Not much of a traditional TV watcher: definitely a streaming fan, whenever I have the time 😄
My list is:
Many more came to mind, so I had to stick to the top 5 or I would go on forever 😛
Some pretty interesting recommendations in this topic, I have to update my "to-watch" list!
List from me, in pretty much random order:
Double kudos for "Community", one for the show itself, and one for the name 😉
My recommendation to everyone is that,
These series literally made me cry and kept me excited the whole time while watching it.
DC TV series are great. Need to catch up on them. You are right - Gotham and SmallVille were great. Too many TV shows!
Yes, Tom. Gotham is good one too. After watching it, then I got my answer on how many unsung heroes are there in the story of Batman.
Supernatural! Maybe the first lengthy series I got invested in, started watching it when I was around 12 😅Forgot about it for a few years just to learn about the last season airing and binge-watch it during Covid. Was so sad to say goodbye!
Very true. It was so emotional to watch Dean and Sam meet in the after life. It has got the best brother relationship.
Better Call Saul is SO good. That and The Sopranos both have amazing writing.
Black Mirror +++ very intelligent show. Other dystopian future shows/movie depend on making the future world look like a sort of hell, Black Mirror sort of subtlety manages to show you how awful things could get with the current path of social tech.
Some I am currently watching (I think most of them have already been mentioned):
But also a few older good series:
Babylon Berlin is SO good! Probably the first Noir series I've ever stumbled upon, and it's so worth it!
To me are these:
Breaking Bad / Better Call Saul .
Better Call Saul is the BEST. Loved the picture taken from mostly episodes... The kind of TV Show that got done right in time, before get a crap ending such as The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones...
I also like these short comedy shows, with 20 min episodes, such as Seinfield, TBBT, 99, Malcon, etc.
And, of course, the mind breaker shows, like Dark.
The kind of TV Show that got done right in time, before get a crap ending such as The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones...
I can absolutely agree with that. In many cases, it seems to be difficult to find the right time to end a series 💸😉
Never hit kudo button so quickly like now when I've seen Trailer Park Boys 👀
There are hundreds of them, really really good. I would like to recommend anyone "The Sopranos", since, in my personal opinion, is the best one. Was first emmitted on 1999, so is quite old...But again, a must watch!
