    You should have just said "favorite current TV series". That title is needlessly complicated and may confuse people.

    The list is subject to change as there are a bunch of show I've been meaning to start watching and still haven't gotten around to.

    1. The Americans
    2. Jessica Jones
    3. Daredevil
    4. Agents of SHIELD
    5. The Good Place
    6. BoJack Horseman
    7. American Gods
    8. The Last Kingdom
    9. The Expanse
    10. Archer
    11. Legion



    Would have listed American Crime Story based on its first season (People vs OJ Simpson) but anthology series are a special case - can you consider it 'current'? Every season is a different story, who knows whether the second will be as good. (American Horror Story is a good example how different in quality seasons can be.)
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

    Game of Thrones (I read the books as they came out!)
    American Gods
    Versaille
    Victoria
    Runaways
    Handmaid's Tale
    Stranger Things
    Jessica Jones

    Still need to see the final season of Leftovers. I am waiting on Good Omens.
    Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments...The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

    Hard question. I liked first seasons of stranger things, westworld and good place. I'm kind of disappointed with second seasons of them all. Last seasons of GoT and izombie were quite weak too. And that was probably all shows I've watched this year. So no favorite shows as of now.

    Edit: Oh, I saw American Gods in bespangled's list. How could I forget it? That's probably my favorite ongoing show.

    All said regarding writers, producers, actors, directors, viewers, readers, etc. are what I remember, my opinions, etc.



    1.) Real Time With Maher

    2.) Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

    3.) Medici

    4.) The Crown

    5.) Black Mirror

    6.) Victoria

    7.) Veep

    8.) The Expanse

    9.) Sex Education

    10.) Castlevania

    11.) Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

    12.) The Good Place



    Victoria Season 2 was down in quality from Season 1, but Season 3 is excellent so far. Medici Season 2 is also great; so, the average puts it above Victoria .

    Sex Education is one of the best new series in recent decades period. It's one of the best NetFlix series. Only 'problem' is the only 1 Season so far. We'll see how Season 2 is.

    The Good Place is great.

    While You is a good series, in ways it's a much lesser version of Gossip Girl and even the first 2 Seasons of The Vampire Diaries .

    Russian Doll was good; I haven't seen Umbrella Academy yet.
