One of the most accurate sci-fi shows out there The expanse is thrilling, political and tells a story that is both riveting and thoughtful. Check it out if you haven’t.
We had to add this one here as Friends is more than just a TV show. It’s become a lifestyle for a lot of people and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
One of the more influential shows out there Modern Family is more than just hilarious, it’s got heart, which is the most important thing.
More James Spader? Come on, nothing in the world is better than James Spader on television. Do yourself a favour and watch The Blacklist.
Seinfeld is one of the most-watched shows in television history and it made Jerry Seinfeld a household name. Plus, you’ve always got the soup Nazi to straighten you out.
House of Cards is what really put Netflix on the map and rightly so. Kevin Spacey really made the show his own but Robin Wright took over and showed that she could take the reigns just as well.
Before the show fell off the wagon, Heroes was one of the most intriguing shows on TV. It had everything to make it a success, a great cast, awesome mystery and excellent story.
Even though it went off the rails, the first 5 seasons of the show are some of the most riveting shows on TV.
This was the show that put Prime Videos on the map. An adaptation of Phillip K Dick’s story, the Man in the High Castle tells the story of an alternate universe where Germany won World War 2.
Even though the show loves a bit of agenda-driven revisionist history, Vikings is still violent, brutal and thoroughly entertaining.
Hugh Laurie chewing out people always makes for an entertaining watch. House is funny, emotional and inherently watchable.

What were you doing when this show came out? If you missed out on GoT, you’ve got 6 awesome seasons and 2 mediocre ones but the first 6 seasons are must-watch TV.
The Wire is 5 full seasons of a David Simon love letter to the city of Baltimore. The dialogue is crisp and prophetic and the show is one of the best, if not the best thing to ever grace the silver screen.
Another excellent show, The Sopranos would air on TV back in the day but since most of us missed it then, check out the show on Hotstar for one of the wittiest and best crime shows out there.
The eighth season of Homeland is currently airing on Hotstar right now and it’s the best time to check out the entire show as it’s one of the best political thrillers on TV.
A serial killer who hunts other serial killers? What’s not to love about that? Check out Dexter on Netflix for a dark ride through the mind of TV’s most likeable serial killer.
The legendary series has been destroyed by the last two seasons but the whole series is worth checking out especially if you like out-there sci-fi.
