The 7 Best U.S. TV Shows of All Time

1.  Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is set in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The American drama series follows Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a high school chemistry teacher who discovers he has terminal cancer.

Based on a book by Michael Dobbs and a British miniseries of the same name, House Of Cards was first released in 2013. A compelling drama about corruption in Washington D.C. House Of Cards quickly became one of Netflix’s most popular original shows, as well as an award-winning series.

2.  House Of Cards

Created by Mitchell Hurwitz, Arrested Development aired for three seasons on Fox in 2003-2006. The television show focuses on a wealthy family who loses everything and has to live with their son, who’s in charge due to his new trust fund. If you love sarcastic, acerbic humor, then Arrested Development will be right up your alley.

3.  Arrested Development

This sci-fi thriller was an unexpected hit and cemented Netflix’s position as a home for top-tier television. Created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, who previously worked on Wayward Pines, Stranger Things is set in 1980s Indiana and focuses on a boy whose friends go missing while he investigates mysterious events in his neighborhood—eerie.

4.  Stranger things

The Office revolves around a branch of Dunder Mifflin, a fictional paper company. And the American Series is presented in mockumentary style (like The Office) as if it were a real documentary about an actual paper company. The drama series follows people who work at Dunder Mifflin and their quirky office antics and interactions with each other.

5.  The Office

The Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black is a comedic drama about Piper Chapman, who is sentenced to 15 months in prison after her involvement with a drug-trafficking ring ten years prior comes to light. Set in minimum security Litchfield Penitentiary, OITNB provides an insight into life behind bars as well as portraying racial issues that are rarely touched upon in US media and television shows.

7.  Full House

Though criticized as an odd pick, there’s a reason Full House was a hit back in the day—and why it’s still worth watching today. The family-friendly sitcom starring John Stamos and Bob Saget focuses on two fathers raising three young women (D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle) after their wives were killed in a car accident. It showcases some of America’s favorite tropes: close-knit families, humorous hijinks, and adorable kids.
