    Well, I know this is a tough one but let's have a go. Could name a few since it's difficult for some(including me) to just name one.

    I'd probably say The Wire(HBO), Breaking Bad(AMC), Luther(BBC) and Oz(HBO).

    There's no one best series for me. I have my favourites for different reasons. And while some seasons of them I would consider quite bad, highest on my list overall would be (I'm going to list quite a few, since people are often wondering what to watch):

    Sopranos
    Breaking Bad
    Billions
    West Wing
    House of Cards
    Sons of Anarchy
    Vikings
    Homeland
    The Americans
    Band of Brothers
    Stargate SG1
    Seinfeld
    Californication
    Boss (sadly canned after one season)
    Weeds
    How I Met Your Mother
    Grace and Frankie
    Better Call Saul

    Honourable mentions:

    Outlander
    Game of Thrones
    Madam Secretary
    The Newsroom
    Sense8
    Westworld
    Turn
    Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (sadly canned after one season)
    LilyHammer
    Long Way Round & Long Way Down
    Masters of Sex
    Orange is the New Black (early seasons are definitely better)
    Rectify
    Terra Nova (sadly canned after one season)
    Life in Pieces
    Code Black
    Black Sails

    I'm still yet to watch any of The Wire or Boardwalk Empire but I understand they're meant to be good. Also want to watch The Night Manager, Rescue Me, Narcos, Mr Robot (I started but need to get back to it), The Man in the High Castle, Hell on Wheels, Empire, Deadwood, Bull and Ray Donovan.

    I know it's only in it's first season but man - Westworld is killing it, slotting into my personal top 5 already.

    Not a huge fan these days but was when it was an original...

    Another show that needs a mention is the most expensive TV show ever made that's recently been released... The Crown. It's a very historically accurate show about the very young Princess Elizabeth and her journey in life, becoming Queen and how she handles herself, her family, politics and public life/image. We're really enjoying watching it so far. Granted, you have to be into that sort of thing.

    I'd watch it if they went all GoT with the royal fam and killed them all off.

    Enjoying "The Man in the High Castle". It's mega complicated and has many story threads but is really enthralling. Basically a story about an alternate timeline in which the NAZIs and the Japanese won WWII and split America between them. BTW, Australia is part of the "Greater Japanese Empire". Eek! :(
