Some bad seeding there though!

Ray Donovan as a 16 is horrible..same with Stranger Things as a 12.

You do ride for Ray Donovan.  I didn't see the last 2 seasons. Did like the show.

Well it has routinely been nominated for Emmy too I believe.

Schreiber and Voigt also get nominated often.

I believe his wife was nominated for an Emmy too.

The D Bracket is like the “group of death” in soccer. Tough road.

Shameless facing the 1 seed they didn’t want to in The Sopranos for an early exit, or else they are an elite 8 show.

Good idea during this down time.

I won't quibble over the seeds, but Atlanta is a pretty glaring omission. I listened to the best shows of the decade "The Watch" podcast earlier today and it probably ranked the highest when combining the rankings of the 4 hosts/guests.

Atlanta should definitely be there. Kick Narcos or Happy Endings out.

Re: Atlanta...watched some of the first season, will give another look.

Guess Community could also be there somewhere.

Here's Alan Sepinwall's top 50 shows of the decade, which unlike that pod I referenced, includes shows that start before 2010.

Another top 50 list:

Same #1 on each list. Fleabag, Breaking Bad, and BoJack in both top 5's. Atlanta in both top 10's.

Another with The Leftovers at #1, so I guess I should watch that next once I finish The Americans.

BoJack at #2. I love that show, but I didn't realize it was quite this acclaimed.

Strong rankings again for Fleabag and Atlanta, which are two of my favorites.

Btw, I'm not trying to find lists that confirm to my rankings, these are the first three I came across.

Leftovers is good but the symbolism is so heavy handed that I felt insulted.

Last one, and finally one that isn't nearly as high on The Leftovers or BoJack. Still lots of love for Fleabag and Atlanta, though.

Mostly chalk for me. My final four is Game of Thrones, Sopranos, Breaking Bad and The Wire.

 

GOT vs Sopranos is a tough one. Both adored shows that failed to stick the ending for most people. I gotta go with Sopranos, though, since it was an original story and the ending wasn't nearly as bad as GOT.

 

The Wire vs Breaking Bad is another good one but The Wire is the best show in TV history so that's the winner.

 

Sopranos vs The Wire is a true championship, and again, The Wire wins.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Based off of seeding, I think I go The Wire, Rome, GOT and Sopranos.

I have a feeling if I watched Billions that I would have that in over GOT but I can’t say that for sure.

W/r/t BB vs Rome.

Rome only last 2 seasons and I would take those 2 seasons over any 2 seasons of BB.

BB obviously had a longer run and was good every year during that run.

I’m taking the 2 year peak of Rome though..it’s close.

Sopranos is the easy winner for me overall.

- Curb over Deadwood in bracket A

- Mad Men over Chappelle in B (Parks and Rec and Rome were very tough cuts)

- Sopranos over The Office in C

- The Wire over Fleabag in D

- Mad Men over Curb

- The Wire over The Sopranos

- The Wire wins it all!
