  • Obviously we here at CBR love us some comic book based TV shows. Not surprising, really. But we must watch other types of shows as well? No?

    Here's my list of all-time favourite TV shows (in no particular order):

    Batman (1966-68 ) What's not to love about this show? You can still watch it 50+ years after it aired. That says a lot!!

    Banshee (2013-16) If you love extreme violence sprinkled with some hot sexy time, this is the show for you!!

    Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) This excellent show helped launch Joss Whedon's career. Just excellent writing for teens and females.

    Burn Notice (2007-13) The best spy show of all time!! And it stars Bruce Campbell as well? I'm sold.

    Xena: Warrior Princess (1995-2001) A perfect mixture of action, comedy and drama. This is definitely one of the funnest shows of all time!! Without this show airing,you might not be watching as many comic book related shows now.

    South Park (1997-2019) Still going strong after 23 seasons!! Impossible, you say? Not if you like over-the-top comedy.

    Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil (2010-12) A Canadian high school show with a tonne of inventive swearing, GWAR-inspired horror/gore and more pot references than you can shake a stick (of weed) at!!

  • Cool topic brucifer.
    I am going to try and steer away from comic based shows if I can help it, and see what I can come up with.

    For comedies, I like Workaholics and Married with Children. Workaholics is freaking insanely hilarious. Married with children, I didn't truly appreciate the humor when it was on air, but now rewatching it, it is comedy gold.

    Trailer Park boys is another. Fellow canadians too. I have the first 8 seasons or so and 3 of the movies in my stash.

    I don't watch too much current stuff. Originality is hard to come by, but I do love the oldies. Brings me back to simpler times....Gilligans Island, I dream of Jeanie, Bewitched, Leave it to beaver, Little house on the prarie, Andy griffith show, Dennis the menace, Munsters, Addams family, Bonanza...stuff like that.

  • My list isn't that large as I wanted to include the best of the best. I purposely didn't include much in the way of comic book inspired TV shows or my list would have been gigantic.

    Spector: I was right on the bubble for including 1) Workaholics (great fun show, sorry it's done), 2) It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (which is still going strong) and 3) Trailer Park Boys (Canada's best kept secret? I'm stoked it's available on Netflix).
    I also enjoy some of the classics like Gilligan's Island, Munsters, Hogan's Heroes and Three's Company, but those type of shows, while still enjoyable, are quite dated.

    MacheteF7: I also liked your list and I would have gladly included Archer, but the last couple of seasons are not funny compared to the first five, which were totally hilarious.

    I highly doubt anyone has seen Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil as it only aired in Canada on the Space channel. If you enjoy South Park, Family Guy, Trailer Park Boys, Beavis & Butthead and Jon Benjamin Has A Van, this is the show for you. Weird, fun, twisted, evil, pot-infused comedy awaits you!!

  • Some of my favorites not mentioned yet

    Peaky Blinders - it's like Sons of Anarchy but in the 1920's ( if you decide to watch this give it a couple of episodes before deciding if you like it or not)

    Ray Donovan- a fixer with a very storied background and a crazy family

    The Americans - named best tv show of the decade 2010-2019

    Spartacus- lots of gore and nudity, Season 1 & 2 were really good, but season 3 fell short as the lead actor had to leave due to his battle with cancer.

    I'll add more as I think of them
