We check the worst live-action shows, now let's check the best shows.

The Top Ten

1 The Flash (2014) The Flash (2014)

I like Gotham but I prefer this more. Watch all of the episodes my favorite is the season finale of season 1.

Just started watching this since seeing the trailer. Nothing else to say, but it's doing good so far. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Perfect show. All the actors do a fantastic job, and the special effects are awesome.

This is my favorite show

2 Arrow Arrow Arrow is an American action crime television series developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg.

The show is very mysterious, and sometimes you don't know if you could trust the main character! I just finished Season 2 on Netflix, which I watched in two sick days!

Glad this is over the Flash. Flash can NEVER top this! - errrr

Should be number 1

3 Gotham Gotham

Things gotten slow in the beginning of Gotham, but the action and thrilling of the series is great in my opinion. We check out the origins of Selina Kyle, Penguin, Commissioner Jim Gordon and Bruce Wayne who'll one day becomes Batman. - TechnicallyIDoComics

My personal favorite. The character development of Penguin is great. I love him as an anti-hero. - SapphireDragon95

Gotten better from every season.

Too bad it's getting too its final season.

Gotham truly is the best comic book show on T.V., you may not have liked season 1, but season 2 and 3 are just phenomenal!

4 Smallville Smallville

The long-running show Smallville series made a big hit of today and fans loves it. This shows how it covers the early years of Clark Kent who would one day become Superman. It lasted 10 seasons and it's the highest rated show in WB history. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Best theme song

5 Daredevil

Violent, Action-Packed, and Dark. My type of thing

One of the greatest shows Netflix has to offer.

Fantastic show that makes us all forget about that godawful 2003 movie. Dark, violent, and well acted/written. I don't normally binge watch, but I binge watched the hell out of Daredevil

Best superhero show

6 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead The Walking Dead is an American horror drama television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard . Andrew Lincoln plays the show's lead character, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma discovering more.

Totally the best comic book show of all time, the great zombie phenomenon, great action and good drama. With great actors and high ratings of today, this is why it's number 1 on the list. - TechnicallyIDoComics

I don't watch that many live action shows. - cosmo

You should watch Walking Dead, it's a great show to watch based on a comic book and it's a good story. Give it a try! - TechnicallyIDoComics

7 Batman (1966)

I know it's one of the worst live-action shows from my previous list, but it's also the best. Adam West's Batman was a more jovial and lighthearted adventurer, which pays off pretty well. This Batman show was one of the most popular comic shows way back in the 60's. - TechnicallyIDoComics

The best superhero show ever. - girlcool

Ha - BeatlesFan1964

8 Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

While DC Comics been making live-action shows and earning money, Marvel made their own live-action show in 2014, which it's getting better since a little slow start of the beginning of the season. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Love this show so much! So many great plot twists, great characters (Fitz is a perfect cinnamon roll, Skye is also amazing), great everything!

9 Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman
10 Supergirl Supergirl Supergirl is the superhero name of Kara Zor-El, cousin to Superman. She was created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino in 1959, and she first appeared in Action Comics, in whose first issue Superman himself was introduced. more.

Live-Action means it looks real! This is an animation this should be out of the list! And Fear THE WALKING DEAD WAS SUPPOSED TO BE 14! Whoever put this here I'm now riot and mad angry because of him/her!

The Contenders

11 Marvel's Agent Carter

Finally a strong female main character for Marvel, and now they're renewed for a second season! Can't wait, this show is so great!

We know Peggy Carter is gonna have her own show and yes, Hayley Atwell is the same Carter from 2011 Captain America movie. - TechnicallyIDoComics

12 Legends of Tomorrow
13 The Incredible Hulk The Incredible Hulk Robert Bruce Banner, also known as The Hulk or Bruce Banner, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and was portrayed by Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Old time favorite as a kid, this show is one the greatest live-action shows ever made and Bill Bixby did his best before his death in 1993. - TechnicallyIDoComics

14 The Flash (1990)
15 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a founding member of the Justice League, a goddess, and Ambassador-at-Large of the Amazon people. In her homeland, the island nation more.

This is not the 1975 one. - errrr


16 Jessica Jones Jessica Jones

This one is really good. And deep. - SapphireDragon95

17 Luke Cage

Sweet Christmas

18 Fear the Walking Dead

This is not a comic. Yes, TWD is a comic but this never was a comic. - errrr

19 Iron Fist Iron Fist Iron Fist is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane, Iron Fist first appeared in Marvel Premiere #15.
20 Riverdale Riverdale

IZombie is the complete package:
Unique and well-executed premise
Memorable characters
Pin point wit
This maybe the best CW show ever

22 Black Lightning

This show rules, here's hoping season 2 is just as great.

23 Lucifer Morningstar Lucifer Morningstar

This a good show
