    Best answer: Am I limited to currently airing? What about streaming service exclusives? I'll include everything since even the current stuff you're going to want to start from the start.

    The Good Place (sitcom about moral philosophy and ethics)

    Breaking Bad (if you don't at least know the gist of this, you probably have been living in a cave)

    Veronica Mars (funny, clever, teen detective show with some drama, but SO much smarter than a normal teen show)

    Black Mirror (literally the oddest show I've ever seen..a sci fi anthology with basically no rules. A modern Twilight Zone of sorts)

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer (slow starter - mid season 2 it picks up, but once it gets going it's on ofthe most metaphor laden shows ever and is studied in college courses and books)

    Archer (until season 8 this was one of the most consistently funny shows I may have ever seen)

    Rick & Morty (so funny, so smart, but also so crude)

    Dexter (some seasons are not so good like the one with the Barrel girls and the finale. But basically about a serial killer protagonist)

    The Americans (really picks up in season 3. About deep cover KGB spies in the 80s)

    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Time travel, alternate dimensions, wacky as hell, but funny and clever along the way)

    Death Note (anime, not the live action. What if someone could kill people by writing their name in a book?)

    Stargate SG-1 (give it a season to pick up steam, and don't bother past season 8. See the movie first. The premise is SO cheesy sounding, but this show makes it work, I swear.)

    West Wing (heavy bias, but the best politics TV show ever)

    Dead Like Me (black comedy about death and life as seen by a group of grim reapers)

    Wonderfalls (a girl is pushed by supernatural visions of talking toys to do seemingly random things that get her involved in life despite her desire to be detached from the world)

    Pushing Daisies (a detective show about a man who can bring the dead back briefly so he can investigate their murders)

    Black Adder (A silly comedy by Rowan Atkinson about a nasty man named Black Adder inserted into various moments of British history)

    Boston Legal (Heavy bias, but one of the better procedural legal dramas, IMHO. Dealt with lots of deep issues)

    Arrested Development (ignore past season 3...a zany and clever comedy)

    iZombie (not really a zombie show in the traditional sense, really a procedural cop show with a twist of things they call zombies that aren't like normal zombies)

    Future Man (Hulu original. Basically every 1980s sci fi trope gets a tribute and parody in a hilarious time travel story)

    American Horror Story (deeply inconsistent from season to season, but it was good and weird)

    The Office (US) (Pure sitcom, but really good until nearly the end)

    30 Rock (Again, pure sitcom, but a good one)

  • Why don't critic review episodes of TV shows?

    They can do and get away with everything on episodes of TV Shows because critics don't review episodes of TV Shows only movies. like there's an episode of a TV Show that's the worst thing ever but nobody criticizes it because it's an episode of a show not a movie. why is that?

  • Smart TV show recommendations?

    Best answer: The Good Place - Far and away the smartest show on TV right now. It's all about moral philosophy, dressed up as a sitcom about the afterlife. Your examples are sci fi heavy. Have you watched Stargate SG-1? It was very good once it got it's legs under it (starts slow). Lot's of great action... show more
    Best answer: The Good Place - Far and away the smartest show on TV right now. It's all about moral philosophy, dressed up as a sitcom about the afterlife.

    Your examples are sci fi heavy. Have you watched Stargate SG-1? It was very good once it got it's legs under it (starts slow). Lot's of great action episodes, but also many of the one-offs were great sci fi as commentary on society.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of the most dissected shows in TV history. There are several colleges with a course dedicated to all the symbolism in this one show. Entire books. On the surface it looks like a show about killing monsters with a bunch of funny one liners thrown in, but in fact everything is metaphor for Buffy's growing up into an adult. The monsters, the situations all are symbols and metaphors. Even the other characters are metphors for different parts of Buffy - Giles her intellect, Xander her heart, and Willow her spirit. And each of their reactions to things usually reflect how that aspect of Buffy would react to the metaphor of the day. Unfortunately, it's another slow starter...the show doesn't REALLY hit it's stride until mid season 2.

    Firefly was brief but great.

    Babylon 5 was the most uneven show ever in that it was both slow starting and slow ending, but that middle-bit was some of the best stuff of it's era.

    If you like Anime at all, Death Note is pretty great. Watch the anime, not the Netflix live action adaptation.

    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency was pretty excellent, albeit killed before it's time, and I love the way the seemingly crazy things from the first half of the show are beautifully and organically explained in the second half.

    Future Man, a Hulu Original, is hilarious and uses time travel and sci fi and lots of references. It's characters are dumb as bricks, but it's very creative always taking a 80s sci fi reference and then putting enough twist on it to subvert your expectations.

    iZombie is the most unusual take on zombie lore I've ever seen. Though, at it's heart the show is an episodic procedural cop drama, the zombie veneer and continuity developments of that part weave nicely together and where the show is now, it's broken out of the usual repetitive trap these sorts of shows end up in, where the characters are secret forever and the world is static. The iZombie world changes DRAMATICALLY in Seasons 3 and 4.

    Dead Like Me is a sitcom about a group of grim reapers that take a bittersweet look at death (and life) in a black comedy.

    Wonderfalls only got about half a season, but was an upbeat look at the lives of people who crossed the path of the protagonist, Jaye who intervened in people's lives reluctantly because inanimate things with faces were talking to her and telling her to do, seemingly random things that had huge impacts on people's lives in sort of a Rube Goldbergian way.

    If you're willing to step out of sci fi, Veronica Mars was a great show. A teen detective show that was smart and funny and warm.

    Pushing Daisies showed promise before it was cancelled. It's about someone who can bring people back to life, but only briefly and only once. This makes him the perfect detective. It's very much a show in the vein of Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls (same creator, IIRC), but it wasn't given enough time to find it's rhythm.

    I see some other people have suggested Breaking Bad, Americans, and those are good. Not sci fi obviously. I would add Dexter to that list.

    Arrested Development is also not sci fi, and is a sitcom, but it was one of the cleverest sitcoms of it's era, mastering the running gag trope by constantly tweaking and refreshing them and using them in unexpected situations. Only watch the original 3 seasons. The 2 netflix seasons are GARBAGE.

    I don't know how open to cartoons you are, but Archer is a HILARIOUS cartoon featuring sci fi and spy elements. It's a bit adult, but I think it would be okay for a teen.

    Futurama is also pretty darn smart. Like all cartoon sitcoms (Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy) it went on too long and lost it's mojo, but Futurama was arguably one of the best sci fi shows of it's era. It used just about every sci fi trope and layered alot of messages and commentary in subtly.

    Best answer: A quick Google tells me that was from Terminus until their arrival in Alexandria. I mean that was decent. I prefer the time in the prison.

    But Walking Dead really was never that great a show. It's always been JUST good enough that early on I kept waiting to see if it would improve and get really good, and then later on I figured I already sunk so much time in it, i may as well see it through to the end.

    This changes a couple seasons from where you are. And I guess I would say that it's all downhill from where you are. I know ALOT of people who quit during the Neegan storyline coming up. It's not Neegan himself, he was delightful. It's the way the show just stretched and fillibustered itself to try to drag that storyline out. It got tedious in the extreme.

In a later movie the car had been destroyed but the computer helped Michael with a case. He referred to it as KITT just as he did during the television series. But there wasn't a car. It was a box that set beside him in his car.

    Office on the other hand was consistently funny up until it's last season, and that's despite the cringe-worthy Michael Scott. Jim & Pam & Dwight were a riot, and of the other supporting character only Mindy was unfunny...and yet somehow got a spinoff of her own.
