Top 15 Live Action Television Shows

Alright, here we go. You know the drill, it's just my opinion, blah blah blah, enjoy.

15. The Incredible Hulk (1977) - Yes the only thing Marvel I truly love. For a show in the 70s this was actually a terrific show with good drama, great characters, and awesome moments when the Hulk transformed and wrecked stuff. Proof that superhero shows can be done in real life.

14. Supernatural - Yes it's a CW show, but if you give it a shot like I did you will find a very engrossing show, and I severely need to catch up on a season or two.

13. Blackadder - British comedy is big with me and this show is terrific. I have watched it multiple times and never cease to laugh when viewing it, it especially gets great when Hugh Laurie becomes a permanent cast member.

12. Bates Motel - Now I admit the first time I heard about this show I expected it to crash and burn. But I took a gamble, bought the first season, and it was so good every time I had to swap a disc I was a frantic mess. I had to know what was going to happen next! It is that good a show!

11. Criminal Minds - Basic show, sometimes interesting cases, but it's the characters that make me come back for more every time.

10. House - Back to Hugh Laurie! This show never gets dull for me. Maybe it's because of the cases, maybe it's because Hugh Laurie is awesome, probably that second one but this is a show I hopefully never will be cured of.

9. Star Trek - Yes the show that started it all. Even though it's nothing remarkable these days, to me Star Trek is still awesome, with unforgettable characters, very good stories, and able to say so much about humans, life, and the universe just by Kirk fighting a guy in a rubber lizard suit.

8. Mystery Science Theater 3000 - What a concept. Have people sit in a room, and make fun of bad movies! But they take it to the top level of genius with robots, spaceships, mad scientists, and hilarious snarky humor. I know it's just a show and I should probably just relax but, nah.

7. The Twilight Zone - A dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind, Rod Serlings genius comes full force in one of the greatest television shows of all time, combining brilliant stories, with unexpected twist endings, tied together with a bow on top of wonderful eerieness.

6. Sherlock - Now I don't think I need to say why this show is great, and why I love it. I wrote reviews on every damn series, go read them!

5. Hannibal - Yet again, another show I thought would fail miserably, and yet here I am, one of it's biggest fans. Strange how things work out huh?

4. M*A*S*H - Good God, this is a great show! Spanning eleven seasons, with memorable characters, great comedy, and taking a grim subject matter like war and making it a bit more tolerable, this show truly is one of the greatest of the greats.

3. Gotham - I had hope in this show and it delivered. Classic comic book characters, with an excellent mix of drama, comedy, mystery, and action. Many people wouldn't want to live in Gotham, but I certainly wouldn't mind.

2. Batman (1966) - What? What?? You don't love this show? You don't think it's absolutely brilliant behind it's campy, fun exterior?? That Adam West is without a doubt THE Batman??? Well you're just out of your mind.

1. Doctor Who - Yes this show might be pissing me off lately, but when you think about it, it's been going on for over 50 years. Obviously they did something right, and the fanbase proves it. Science fiction at it's best (and sometimes at it's worst) Doctor Who will always have a place in my hearts, somewhere in time and space.

And that's it! Thank you very much for reading, I got to admit this was a tricky as hell list to make, and I fear for the next list greatly. It's like asking which of your extended family should be allowed to live, it's just cruel.
