- Farscape (rewatchable to this day)
- Rick and Morty <------- (Seriously)
- The Prisoner
- Orphan Black
- Fringe (Mostly for audacity, and great older actors)
I had to push to get past the first episode of Rick and Morty, but man-oh-man, I’m glad i did. I. Can’t. Even.
The Expanse is shaping up to be a contender.
I have high hopes for Sens8; hoping it continues to accelerate the crazy. Bit of a slow-burn start.
I wanted to love Black Mirror, but found it too bleak.
I enjoyed Person of Interest, but it suffered from too slow a ramp-up, too much case-of-the-week.
A big factor in this list for me is does it hold up over time. For that reason, most Trek doesn’t make my list, B5, as much as I wish it would. Red Dwarf is borderline. BSG would make the list if they stopped before the last season…:\
Babylon 5 and X-Files get a (pretty big) runner up prize for pretty much inventing modern genre Arc series…};^)
