* ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'' might have sounded like it was going to be a rip-off of ''30 Rock'' but it was an imaginative, very clever show that you get to see very rarely. Aaron Sorkin's and Tommy Schlamme's name appearing on the small screen again was way too cool for their fans. To the creators' credit, the series tried to wrap up everything very quickly when they realised it was going to finish. It was a great, very well done show; it was funny and it had very likable characters. It was simply great.

* ''Series/UltramanMebius'' is quite possibly the greatest entry in the franchise's very long run. The {{Mythology Gag}}s, {{Homage}}s, and ContinuityPorn it brought as [[MilestoneCelebration the 40th anniversary series]] are absolutely wonderful for any long-time ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' fan (So great to see so many classic monsters return!). The cast is very endearing and well-developed, the show pulls of major [[HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]], [[FunnyMoments funny]], [[AwesomeMoments awesome]], and [[TearJerker sad]] moments, the idealism is refreshing, and the stories are always top notch with a nice balance of light-hearted and serious. They even got actors from the earlier entries to reprise their former roles, creating many amazing guest appearances! It is well-paced, well-toned, and probably one of the best tokusatsu series in general. The characters are well-done but not overworked, the humor is well-done, and it doesn't take itself too seriously.
* ''Series/UltramanMax'' is a fantastic entry. From its fun and likable cast to its excellent usage of some of classic monsters to its relatively solid SFX to its fairly lighthearted charm, there's something for anybody who loves {{Toku}}, {{Kaiju}}, or Ultraman as a whole. It's also a fantastic entry for newcomers to get introduced to the standard Ultraman formula without the troubles of adjusting to the more outdated effects of older series, being locked out of continuity and {{Homage}}s, or getting the wrong idea of the franchise's general nature. Unfortunately being sandwiched between grimdark franchise reboot ''Ultraman Nexus'' and nostalgia-fuelled MilestoneCelebration ''Ultraman Mebius'' keeps ''Max'' from getting as much attention as other series. [[AwesomeMusic Oh, and theme song is kickass.]]

* ''Series/{{Ultraseven}}'' was the best of the Showa entries (entries from 1966-1981) in the ''Ultra Series''. While it was actually fairly sparse in terms of Kaiju, which the franchise is famous for (even so, it produced many memorable ones), the aliens made for far more interesting villains. It had smart writing, thought-provoking episodes, and [[DarkerAndEdgier darker elements]]. It touched on subjects like genocide, war, racism, tyranny, and so much more. The special effects [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny may look awful]], but they were amazing for their time (Some actually hold up not too badly!). There is a reason why Ultraseven has gotten more remakes and appearances than the original ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'', after all!
* The original ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' deserves a lot more credit than it gets. Carrying over the special effects magic of the Franchise/{{Godzilla}} movies that made [[Creator/EijiTsuburaya Eiji "Master of Monsters" Tsuburaya]] famous, it's got lots of charm ([[NarmCharm the lovably cheesy kind included]]), genuine heart, and characters you can truly root for. There's no denying that it is rather outdated from the 60s values to the old-school practical effects, but the same old-fashioned feel adds to the retro charm like the phone that sounds like King Ghidorah or the wrestling-type battles. Of course, we have the real stars of the show - the monsters, of which the very best (Zetton, Gomora, Antlar, Baltan, Red King...) are worthy of the Master of Monsters' best Toho creations. All in all, the original ''Ultraman'' is the perfect show for anybody who loves old-fashioned television or Showa-era Kaiju flicks. There is a reason why the titular red-and-silver giant hero is such a pop culture icon is his homeland, after all!

to:

* ''Series/UltramanGaia'' is another great entry in the series with its darker elements, overarching storyline, interesting characters, and intriguing conflict between Ultraman Gaia and [[AntiHero Ultraman Agul]]. It also has lots of memorable monsters and some pretty good special effects. Also worth mentioning is how the show deconstructs HumansAreTheRealMonsters and the various new spins it put on the Ultraman formula, such as a larger and more diverse defense team, the changing views towards Earth monsters, a new origin story for the Ultramen, and having adventures or crises beyond Japan.

* As the franchise's 50th anniversary series, ''Series/UltramanOrb'' was everything an Ultraman fan could ask for. Tons of VisualEffectsOfAwesome, stories that could be either fun or serious, great homages to the generations of heroes, an interesting storyline, and a nice mix of great new and beloved old monsters. It also does a pretty good job at integrating the MerchandiseDriven Ultra Cards into a believable part of the show and there are some well-done changes to the franchise's usual formula that really show why the ''Ultraman'' franchise is still alive and kicking
after all!50 years.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HighwayToHeaven'': The show is chock-full of feartwarming, funny, and generally awesome moments, but just the premise: That there's an angel walking around for literally ''no other reason'' than that he wants to help people. And he needs the help of ordinary humans to do it. It may be from the 1980s, but it's just as wonderful as ever, teaching messages like YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre to everyone from overweight high school students to executives who don't have time for their families.

** ''Series/TheElectricCompany1971'' was one of the greatest children's shows of all time. It had witty humor, great songs, and a very talented cast. Not just MorganFreeman and Rita Moreno, but everyone. Them, the writers, the directors, everyone who worked on the show were people who knew what really entertained kids [[ParentalBonus and adults]]. Not to mention the graphics were cool. Most importantly, they taught a whole generation of kids how to read and to love reading. Nothing made afterwards comes close, not even ''Series/BetweenTheLions''.

* ''Series/DeadliestWarrior''. Say what you want about DanBrowned facts and such, but it managed to get people interested in history, from the well-known pirates and ninjas, to the lesser-known (outside their home countries) Maori and Rajput. And Zombies vs Vampires... Brutality, monsters, and vampires taken back to their roots mythological roots, unrelenting predators that haunt the nightmares of their prey. No romantics, [[AnneRice no angst]], and most importantly [[{{Twilight}} no SPARKLING]]!
* ''FridayNightLights''! The dialogue, the emoting, the amazing music by Explosions in the Sky, a Christian speed-metal band with Jesse Plemons as frontman, Taylor Kitsch frequently shirtless and showing off the saddest puppy eyes ever filmed, oh and there's a bull named named KitKat.

* Say what you like about it, but ''Gilligan's Island'' is such a fun show to watch. It's like Laurel and Hardy meet Robinson Crusoe with a good dose of Jules Verne added. Exotic scenery, likeable characters, jokes that are funny without being mean spirited, what's not to like? Also, the fact that it was created by an intellectual is pretty cool.

** ''LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple''. Best game show ever. Even if the show's been cancelled for years, people still dream of one day facing Olmec's temple. That Silver Monkey is going DOWN. One of the greatest forms of entertainment known to mankind. The temple guards to be the best part and always jumped when they came out of the trees.

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' is one of the most brilliant television shows to come out of Britain in decades. Not only is it a ''successful'' re-imagining of Literature/SherlockHolmes himself, it is so true and respectful to the original stories. It has two brilliant (and unrepentantly geeky!) showrunners in Creator/StevenMoffat (yes, THAT [[Series/DoctorWho Steven]] [[{{Series/Jekyll}} Moffat]]) and Creator/MarkGatiss (yes, THAT [[TheLeagueOfGentlemen Mark Gatiss]]), who pepper their writing with references to the original ACD stories. It has two amazing stars: BenedictCumberbatch and MartinFreeman, both of whom embody their characters completely. You may not be able to take your eyes off Benedict and the "exotic animal" his Sherlock is (complete with gorgeous wardrobe and full-bore snark), but Martin's John is perfectly, wonderfully normal in the face of Sherlock's crazy. The rest of the cast is similarly wonderful, with extra special kudos to Mr. Gatiss pulling double-duty and providing a brilliant Mycroft Holmes, and to Rupert Graves's dryly paternal take on Inspector Lestrade. It's action-y, it's dramatic, and it's hilarious, and that ending cliffhanger ''will'' cause you to shriek at your television. It's faithful to the books, it's funny, it'd really frigging interesting and kind of creepy, it's surprisingly sweet and unrelentingly heartbreaking.

* The muthafrakkin' ''Series/TheATeam''! The concept was absolute brilliance, four BadAss Special Forces buddies unleashed against every crook and mobster in 1980's America. Ass-kicking and pithy one-liners abound. And people can bash the "cartoonish" all they want. Those action scenes were cooler than some of the stuff in the movies. Long live the A-Team!

* Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine was the most human of the ''Treks'' for good reason -- it wrote interpersonal relationships deftly, dealt with the consequences of its actions, had a ton of supporting cast who were all written with depth, had [[MagnificentBastard Cardassians]] every which way, actually dealt with religion and did it well, had an actual friggin ''war'', the first same-sex kiss on ''Franchise/StarTrek'', while still managing to be damned hilarious, and wasn't above taking potshots at itself. ''Deep Space Nine'' was the very best of all the Treks and it had an awesome cast and writers whose love of ''Trek'' showed. Ron Moore cut his teeth here and on ''TNG'' years before ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' and you can see parallels between the two shows, with the aforementioned wonderful supporting cast and lots of moral gray areas. It had amazing, fully-developed characters on this show, including both the main characters and the outstanding ensemble cast. They all have real, believable backstories that actually go with the characters' personalities (Kira pulls off coming from a CrapsackWorld, being a ChildSoldier in LaResistance, and learning firsthand that WarIsHell without a single drop of {{Wangst}} and plenty of BadAss and becomes one of the best characters on the show, and even Dr. Bashir's InsufferableGenius-ness ties in with the rest of his character) and most of them are just plain AWESOME. And as for the supporting cast's amazingness. Garak. Just... Garak. Also, Batlithe duels, Klingon mythology, and Worf/Jadzia, a great BattleCouple. And Quark, and all his scheming and comic relief mixed with his moments of Badassery when his family is in danger. Great show! It attained the perfect balance between the sometimes overly-optimistic Roddenberry vision of the other Treks and the sometimes overly-pessimistic Ron Moore vision of [=BSG=]. Just enough darkness to tone down the lightness of Trek and make it real, combined with long arcs that allowed for deeper story and character development, resulted in a great show that made all of its parts greater than they had any business being. Watching [=DS9=], more so than any of the other Treks, was like watching real people and true stories. Everyone was incredibly flawed without being overly messed up or unlikable, all of their relationships were suitably complicated, and there were "always" two sides to every argument, conflict, plot, and character. The heroes were good without being right all the time and the villians were anything but pure evil--admit it, you were sad when Weyoun was gone for good. Just like real life, this show was hilarious, emotionally draining, complicated, depressing at times, heartbreaking, and uplifting.

* ''Series/LawAndOrderTrialByJury'' was taken from us too soon. Tracey Kibre is a gorgeous, fiery, brilliant lead character, Kelly Gaffney is walking cute with a side of BadAss, and there is something so ''fascinating'' about seeing the legal side of the system in the L&O 'verse. Also, LesYay. Piles and piles and piles of Les Yay. And all those clingy tops Creator/BebeNeuwirth walks around wearing and Amy Carlson's fuzzy sweaters... It was made of pure awesome. It had all the Les Yay you got from Alex and Olivia, the insane CourtroomAntics of The Mother Ship, [[Series/BostonLegal Shirley Schmidt]] was a judge, [[Series/{{Cheers}} Lilith]] was TheDeterminator, Lennie Briscoe was still ambling around being affable and it had my favorite DA ever, magnificent GoodOlBoy Arthur Branch. It was friggin' MadeOfWin, and it still got cancelled. Creator/{{NBC}} are morons.

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is awesome. It has an original story line with twists on fairy tale characters. There's this resurgence in the interest of folklore and fairytale, and it's not all done in the tweeny sort of way either. There is the amazing [[EvilIsHammy hammy-ness]] of Rumpelstiltskin who is just fucking awesome, and the Evil Queen also. Prince Charming is a {{Badass}} and [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething a royal who actually does something]]. This show also turned Literature/PeterPan into [[AdaptationalVillainy ''the ultimate evil'']], and it made it work ''so well.''

* One of the greatest show ever aired is ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries''. The partnership between Lynley and Havers is exquisite, the lead characters are human, the mysteries are actually ''mysteries''... It gave the world cranky, foul-mouthed, fiercely independent, heartbreakingly vulnerable, sweetly romantic Barbara Havers, one of the best character ever created in the history of everything, ever.
