Only the best of the best. I'm not binge-watching, so there may be additions later as this is a list in progress.

I'm watching the following series on a week after week basis until I finished with a season/series. Then I start a different show/season. If you have questions regarding this, leave a comment. :) My english is not perfect either.

(Nov/Dec 2015): Currently watching: Grimm season 1, Penny Dreadful season 1, Monster (anime, rewatching), Veep season 1, Arrested Development season 2, My Family season 2, Desperate Housewives season 5, Dexter season 1, Utopia season 1, Knights of Sidonia season 1, Spartacus season 4, Doctor Who season 4, Chuck season 2, The Legend of Korra season 4, Sons of Anarchy season 4, Shameless season 2.

Please note that this list will always be incomplete and is solely based on my opinion, not on general rating.

My favorite shows so far: 1. Breaking Bad 2. Game of Thrones 3. The Legend of Korra 4. Community 5. Orange is the New Black.
