Best TV Dramas (1999 and forward)

Best TV dramas that premiered in 2000 or later.

Breaking Bad

Has gotten better each and every season and yet it already seems impossible for a happy ending to be the result.

Friday Night Lights

If you're surprised to see it here, you didn't watch.

The Shield

Would fight to the death with Breaking Bad in a "Most Intense" contest.

The West Wing

Cheating a little on this one - The West Wing premiered in '99.

The Wire

Way more honest (almost to a fault) than any other show, ever.

Rescue Me

On a season by season level, hard to top s2.

Battlestar Galactica

Another show you have to try before judging.

The Sopranos

The only one on the list I haven't seen...


Drips with atmosphere.




Oh the potential...

Mad Men

The s1 finale leapfrogged it to another level.
