    Yeah it is sad that is got cancelled before it really got going, so many interesting stories that never got told. Yeah I'm looking forward to the next series of Black Sails.

    Don't watch much TV so have to say GOT - best production values, writing and acting. Otherwise I'm more of a news guy: BBC and Al Jazeera.

    FOX had plans for shogun remake a couple of years ago but haven't heard any more on it...it would be hard to top the original Japanese cast, maybe put Ken Watanabe as the Shogun, and the sets and costumes were great. But the music and writing was a little sixties; that needs an update.

    For the drama:
    1. Game of Thrones (I'm biased because it's grimdark fantasy)
    2. Westworld (remove the genre bias and Westworld wins)
    3. House of Cards
    4. Breaking Bad
    5. Stranger Things
    6. Boardwalk Empire
    7. Halt and Catch Fire
    For the comedy (currently):
    1. Rick and Morty
    2. Silicon Valley
    3. Peep Show
    I did watch The Walking Dead and Vikings for a time (seasons 1-4 for both), but I've since grown bored of both shows.

    I can say the same counts for me. The first season of Walking Dead was great. But the other seasons contain a lot of filler material. I especially didn't like the Governor as a villain.
    With Vikings I lost interest in the third season. I did finish it, but never watched the fourth one.

    I'd like Firefly more if it wasn't for the blatant Outlaw Star plagiarism. Seriously, if you like Firefly, you're better off just watching that.

    I used to love Futurama, but it's pretty much on every day for several hours and it's just played out for me right now. But it's an amazing show. I wish it hadn't been cancelled.

    I don't think I have any favorites, but I'm a huge fan of Archer. I would literally rather watch re-runs of Archer than 90% of what's on live tv. Unfortunately I think Reed is running out of ideas because Dreamland, and the previous Figgis Agency season were pretty weak. The presentation (animation, art, etc.) gets better and better, but the content not as appealing to me.

    I watched some of Adam Reeds previous creations... Frisky Dingo was ok. Sealab is even more random and it doesn't hold my attention well.

    I also like Rick and Morty a LOT. I wish they'd bring out season 3 soon. With only 2 seasons of content, watching them over and over again isn't the same...

    I think the Oblongs was totally underrated. I enjoyed that series.

    South Park is a staple, but I don't know what happened with the last season... it's like they quit when the election was settled and took a break halfway through the season and never came back... And they rerun it almost as much as Futurama on comedy central.

    I like Blindspot a lot... nobody else does I guess since my thread is full of crickets.

    I was a fan of NCIS until they got rid of Dinozzo. Tim isn't a strong enough character to be lead. I like Elle as a supporting character and the other chick is ok.. Torres was a really cool character at first until he started channeling Fez, and he's just annoyed me since.

    Some shows that are in the off season right now.... Mr Robot is ok... I really liked Legion. Cosplay Melee was a fun show to watch.

    Too many to choose from. I love Star Trek: The Next Generation, Firefly, Northern Exposure, The West Wing, Twin Peaks, Deadwood... Really hard to pick the best.
