    WHAT?! No Arrested Development?

  2. Jeff_C13 says:

    You really need to find the time to watch BSG.  Best TV series of all time.  And Will Hunting is right, Arrested Development needs to be on the list.

      It’s between that and Lost for the next series I race through.

      Arrested Development would’ve been #21 but I had to cut-off somewhere.

    Weeds, Dexter, arrested development, sons of anarchy, Jericho, Spartacus, Merlin, the IT crowd, skins (uk), prison break, survivors (uk) and the spectacular Spiderman should all be added to your list.

  5. Slodovico18 says:

    Lost and Mad Men are the two best shows on netflix… the only thing that would make it better, THE SOPRANOS!

    Has Quantum Leap put the full seasons up for streaming on Netflix or are there still random episodes missing from each? Last I checked the pilot wasn’t available for streaming as well as a dozen other episodes throughout.

    Hello – Twin Peaks?!

  8. Chachi says:

    No mention of Arrested Development makes this list invalid.

    My personal favorite right now is Breaking Bad – an excellent show in every way, one of the best TV shows I’ve ever seen in fact…

    Because you did not put any of my and others favs:
    Breaking Bad, Sparticus, Dexter, Weeds, Prison Break, Jericho, and prolly others I cant think of right away..

  15. Netflix surfer says:

    shows CURRENTLY on instant that should be top 20:

    Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, 24, Sparticus, Weeds, Prison Break, Jericho, The Tudors – all should be top 20 (and netflix has most of the seasons – if not all of them – for all these shows)

  16. Halucaj says:

    24 is the best show

  17. Joe brock says:

    Will we ever get cause or criminal minds or stuff like that?

  18. Noah says:

    The best is How I met Your Mother, then goes Arrested Development, then That 70’s Show

  19. wtfdood says:

    How are people supposed to take this seriously when you haven’t even watched some of these shows you’re recommending?
