The Top Ten

1 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

Now this is what I am looking for if hbo cancels this show which they are and try to make a show that's better they would not make it better by the way I have been watching this show since the beginning

This is the only right answer to question...

Such a great show

I was skeptical until I watched the show...can't wait for the last season

2 The Wire The Wire The Wire is an American crime drama television series set and produced in Baltimore, Maryland. Created and primarily written by author and former police reporter David Simon, the series was broadcast by the cable network HBO in the United States.

Baltimore at it's best, which is always fun.

My favorite show of all time. I think the reason that puts this show a step ahead of my other favorite shows: (The Sopranos, GOT and Breaking Bad) is that the problems presented in the Wire seem so real. And Baltimore is a state away from where I live. The Wire can be boring at times, but those final season montages are AWESOME. Kima's undercover mission was the most tense moment I've seen on T.V.. I recommend the Wire to anyone who enjoys a good drama, or anyone who is tired of the way the United States is currently going. In the words of Bodie: "We either step up, or step the bleep off! "

3 The Sopranos The Sopranos The Sopranos is an American crime drama television series created by David Chase. The story revolves around fictional New Jersey-based, Italian American mobster Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini). The series portrays the difficulties that he faces as he tries to balance his home life and his criminal organization. more.
