I प्यार TV shows, फिल्में just can’t compare. That being said, I haven’t watched many TV shows, I’m picky and most don’t appeal. (No vampires, romance shows for instance, just don’t like them) Currently these are my प्रिय shows (from least प्रिय to favorite) starting with:



23. Burn Notice

(7 Seasons, 2007-2013)


Michael Westen is a spy for the United States…until he receives his burn notice…which essentially means his career is over. Stuck in his old hometown of Miami, he intends to find out who did this and why, not an easy task. With the burn notice tainting his name he is cut off from his usual contacts and has to stay low key, lest he tip off his unknown enemy. His team to solve that important mystery along with others are Fiona, his kooky ex-girlfriend and IRA spy, and his friend Sam, also a former spy. Then there’s Madeline, Michael’s mother…not the most sane person you’ll ever meet.



22. Batman: The Animated Series-

(4 Seasons, 1992-1995)


The best version of बैटमैन in cartoons, it portrays a moody या occasionally happy Batman, (as happy as the Dark Knight can get) a और mature अभिनय Robin and villains with depth and believable back stories. It also incorporates a amazing amount of action and character development in a short 20 minutes. Kevin Conroy does a great job as बैटमैन and Mark Hamill as Joker is just chilling. The one thing I didn’t like at all was the new Robin (a child, really) in Season 4 and some of the weird stories. But it is still a great watch (as well as सुपरमैन and Spiderman Animated Series, respectively), especially if आप like the Dark Knight.



21. Last Man Standing-

(6 Seasons, 2011-2017)


Cast of Last Man Standing
Mike Baxter loves hunting, guns, knives…anything like that. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of room for that at घर with his interesting three daughters and wife, Vanessa. In fact the only other male in the house is his oldest daughter’s really young son, Boyd. On चोटी, शीर्ष of that, Vanessa decides to work outside of the house again, forcing Mike to take on और parental responsibility than ever before. But his daughters aren’t prepared for their old-fashioned, opinionated father to take over. He would much rather be at work where he is surrounded द्वारा men at sporting-goods retailer Outdoor Man, which sells items like guns, jerky and camouflage recliners. This is a funny sitcom about literally being the last man standing.

20. Bosch

(3 Seasons, 2014-)



Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels, Titus Welliver plays flawed LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch who deals with some pretty cool homicide cases and work drama. In addition he has a daughter Maddie, ex-wife Eleanor and a partner J. Edgar who deal with issues of their own. It is a great cop दिखाना that will draw आप in, episode after episode to see what happens to Bosch, his family, and friends. In addition this दिखाना features some of my प्रिय actors and actresses, which is always cool. My only regret about the दिखाना is that they are a little heavy on the language, but the rest of it और than makes up for it.



19. Stranger Things-

(2 Seasons 2016-)


Stranger Things is a newer Netflix original that is really quite interesting. A boy named Will Byers disappears in a creepy way in a small Indiana town, prompting his friends, family and the police to look for him and in the process they encounter many other odd mysteries, involving secret government experiments, unnerving सूपरनॅचुरल forces, and a very unusual girl who calls herself Eleven.


18. Saturday Night Live-

(42 Seasons, 1975-)



I don’t really consider this a TV show, but I guess, technically, it is. The only decade I really liked SNL, would be the 1990s (which was it’s peak, in my opinion) it featured comedy greats such as Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Dana Carvey, Chris Rock, David कुदाल, कुदाल से खोदना and my प्रिय the perpetually angry (or on the verge of it), Chris Farley to name a few. Some hilarious sketches were published that are super hilarious, 20, 30 years later. Most of the actors and अभिनेत्रियों also went on to have a lucrative film career after SNL and are well-known in the comedy world. On the other hand, I’m not a प्रशंसक of the current sketches. SNL has now become और या less mean-spirited, not as funny, the cast not so great and Alec Baldwin as Trump is terrible.But the stuff from the 90s still provides plenty of laughs… when you’re living in a वैन, वान down द्वारा the river!



17. Seinfeld-

(9 Seasons, 1989-1998)



Just about everyone has heard of Seinfeld, a hilarious comedy about 4 zany people and their friends. Years after it ended, it’s still watched and laughed at. The comedy about “nothing” turned out to be a huge hit for the NBC network, with 101 million people watching the final episode, and it has earned 3.1 billion in repeat fees since the final episode aired 19 years ago. If आप want to laugh your socks off, watch Seinfeld.



16. Three Stooges-

(1928-1970)


From left to right- Larry, Curly, Moe


The Three Stooges don’t really need an introduction. Just a lot of hilarious jokes, missteps, and slapstick comedy.



15. CHiPs-

(6 Seasons, 1977-1983)



CHiPs (which stands for California Highway Patrol with the i and s added for a complete word) is a cop दिखाना that was well known in it’s day. It’s the fictional story of some of the California Highway Patrol officers, especially but not limited to Frank “Ponch” Poncherello and Jon Baker (main characters) who are motorcycle cops enforcing the law. Other characters include Sergeant Getraer, Artie Grossman, भालू Baricza and Bonnie Clark, who are cops that help solve the case(s) of the day. (which might have personal stakes sometimes) The adventures of Ponch and Jon is always a cool watch.



14. The Simpsons-

(28 Seasons, 1989-)



The Simpsons, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie, never gets old and each season adds और laughs. Homer Simpson is a working class nuclear plant employee who lives in Springfield with a family and a host of other hilarious characters. Homer might be a little fat with a unhealthy obsession with खाना (especially doughnuts!). He is also the funniest character on the दिखाना without even trying. Marge is a home-maker who can be the moralistic voice in her tumultuous household. Lisa is the activist who believes in all kinds of causes. Bart is the troublemaker of the family and Maggie is the baby who is a creature of habit and loves her pacifier. The Simpsons is an iconic दिखाना that will keep आप cracking up in laughter.



13. Dukes of Hazzard-

(7 Seasons, 1979-1985)



Another लोकप्रिय दिखाना in its day, good ol’ boys (and cousins) Bo and Luke Duke are always willing to help someone in need या save something या someone, whether the threat comes from bad guys from out of town या from the County Commissioner Jefferson Davis (J.D.) Hogg या Boss Hogg, who is the fat and greedy man who runs Hazzard County with his crooked (and dumb and hilarious) Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. Rosco also has a basset hound Flash and a even dumber deputy which is either Cletus या Enos (depending on the season या episode). Other important characters are Cooter Davenport, local mechanic and the Duke family’s good friend, Uncle Jesse Duke (who is the Duke cousins’ uncle) and Bo and Luke’s other cousin, beautiful गुलबहार, डेज़ी Duke who is a waitress at Boss Hogg’s restaurant The Boar’s Nest which also doubles as one of his offices. J.D. Hogg’s enemies are usually the Duke boys who manage to foil his plots and who will almost always get away from (and crash his crooked lawmen’s cars) the crooked law with their souped up, bright नारंगी, ऑरेंज Dodge Charger, nicknamed General Lee. Dukes of Hazzard is a great show, full of entertainment and family values.



12. Shooter

(2 Seasons 2016-)



Based on the 2007 movie “Shooter” (based on the novel Point of Impact) The first season starts ,former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger is happy with his wife and daughter in a remote cabin, hunting and practicing his skills as a sniper after leaving the military, where he served with honor. His civilian life doesn’t last long, though, with the discovery of a plot to kill the president of the United States. His former commanding officer Isaac Johnson, now a Secret Service agent, draws Swagger into the investigation for skills to be put to use to keep the President safe. Let’s just say things don’t go as planned, leaving Swagger trying to stay alive and keep his family safe.


11. The Good Wife-

(7 Seasons, 2009-2016)



I haven’t seen much of this show, but I’m already really liking it. Alicia Florrick is the wife of Peter Florrick who was Chicago’s Attorney General until very public scandals ended his term and put him in jail. Alicia decides to stay married to him and resume a job as a defense attorney, while Peter’s mother watches their two kids, Zach and Grace. The reason I really like this दिखाना is because it puts the emphasis on the cases which are never as they appear. The great mix of family drama and exciting legal cases never fail to hold my interest until the end of the episode.



10. Prison Break-

(5 Seasons, 2005-)


Cast of Prison Break
Prison Break is the story of Michael Scofield, a man with a desperate and just borderline crazy plan. His brother, लिंकन Burrows is sent to prison for a murder he didn’t commit and is now on death row. Michael (a structural engineer who helped build the prison) has the idea to pretend to rob a bank and get himself incarcerated alongside his brother and then facilitate their elaborate escape. This दिखाना follows Michael and his plans, his brother, their fellow inmates (bunch of interesting and quite different characters) and everything that goes into a prison break. A thrilling दिखाना that will always keep आप hooked.



9. Ties That Bind-

(1 Season, 2015)



Ties that Bind is also a cop show, this particular one is about The McLean family, Allison is the cop of the family and deals with intriguing whodunit cases. Her husband Matt works at घर and in construction. Their children Jeff and Rachel also live with them and have a hard time adjusting to life after their कड़वा teenage cousins, Cameron and Mariah, come to live with them after Allison busted their father and their mother was put in rehab. This दिखाना narrates the different criminal cases Allison deals with as well as troubles at घर and at the kids’ school. This दिखाना was amazing, but sadly was cancelled द्वारा UP after 1 season (it ended on a cliffhanger!!!), but it’s still worth your time.



8. Suits

(7 Seasons, 2011-)


सूट्स is a legal drama about the employees at Pearson Hardman (the names change many times) specifically Harvey Specter, Mike Ross, Jessica Pearson, Rachel Zane and Louis Litt, all lawyers (with one paralegal) who deal with personal and work issues (one of the biggest ones being Mike never went to law school) and drama as well as legal cases, tough clients and opponents. This दिखाना is riveting and extremely interesting if आप like legal shows. I really like the main cast in this दिखाना even और than the cases which is rare for me.

7. Law and Order: Special Victims Unit-

(18 Seasons, 1999-)


Originally I wasn’t a प्रशंसक of this show, but now I definitely am. Law and Order: SVU follows New York City detectives who deal with special cases, usually involving rape, abuse etc. I enjoy this long running दिखाना for a few reasons. I enjoy the cast and their varying but important roles in solving the cases, the other reason is that I enjoy the cases themselves, nothing या no one is how they appear which makes for some interesting television.



6. Impractical Jokers-

(6 Seasons, 2011-)


If आप want some laughs, turn on Impractical Jokers! This hidden-camera दिखाना follows four lifelong friends, (from left to right) Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Sal Vulcano and Joe Gatto who take dares to an outrageous level. Ever since they met in school, the four have challenged one another to do ridiculous dares in public.Then they had the idea to turn it into a show. On the show, to find out who is best under pressure, the guys compete in awkward, embarrassing and outrageous things on a hidden camera, with the other guys not only watching and listening, but also telling their friend what to do. If आप fail to do या say what the other guys tell आप to do, then आप lose that specific challenge and might be loser of the episode. At the end of each episode, the loser must perform an extremely mortifying या scary challenge, made up द्वारा the other guys. Some cringe-worthy punishments and challenges have been … skydiving (one of them is extremely scared of heights), running through a creepy, rigged house, dressing like a woman and giving a tech workshop (the inventions are made up द्वारा the other guys), meeting your celebrity crush in a Speedo, having your house destroyed द्वारा the other guys (while the fourth joker was watching on TV!), giving classes आप know absolutely nothing about, taking lie detector test in front of a huge crowd (with the सवालों from the other jokers), insulting others, sumo wrestling, making a टोस्ट (written द्वारा the other guys) at a wedding for a couple आप don’t know, being attached to a machine that simulates labor pains, या giving a खाना presentation (with the guys ordering आप around)…with your mouth pumped full of Novocaine are just a few of the और embarrassing things these guys have had to suffer. This दिखाना is absolutely hilarious!


5. The Arrow
(5 Seasons, 2012-)


The ऐरो is a great show, similar to Batman, but with a little bit और family drama that adds some humanity to The Arrow, a.k.a. Oliver Queen, long-lost billionaire प्लेबाय who went on a yacht trip with his father and fiancee’s sister, both of whom die, leaving Oliver the sole survivor, but shipwrecked on an island for 5 years until he was rescued द्वारा a passing boat, now he is back in his घर of मैना, स्टार्लिंग City, seeing the familiar faces who thought him long dead. Before his dad died he had कहा he wasn’t the man Oliver thought he was and gives him a small book of names of rich and influential men who are ruining the city like Robert क्वीन had. His father wants him to stop these ruthless men and be his legacy. So Oliver becomes the Arrow, a green-clad man who wreaks vengeance for the city with his bow and ऐरो and amazing fighting skills…but not all his methods are lawful and so no one can know the identity of the masked vigilante who will accomplish his mission, whatever the cost.


4. The Flash-

(4 Seasons, 2014-)



Based off the Flash comics, Barry Allen’s life changed when his mother died when he was 11 and his innocent father was convicted and sent to prison for her murder. At that time he went to live with Detective Joe West and his daughter Iris West. Now he is grown up, working as a सी एस आइ at CCPD in Central City, determined to solve his mother’s murder, saving his father and wanting to तारीख, दिनांक the grown-up, beautiful Iris West. Suddenly his life is forever changed when S.T.A.R. Labs head scientist Harrison Wells sets off his particle accelerator which was supposed to be a great step in science, but instead exploded, imbuing certain people with special abilities and Barry is affected and दिया super speed. Now Harrison Wells and fellow S.T.A.R. Labs scientists Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon train him to use his great speed. He and Joe West (still a detective at CCPD) continue to go to the crime scenes as usual, but now most crimes are inexplicable, perpetrated द्वारा others affected द्वारा the explosion, nicknamed “metahumans”. Now the Flash is the only one who can stop it with the help of Dr. Wells, Caitlin and Cisco. Some of them can clone themselves, control the weather, cause vertigo, to name a few cool ones.

As a superhero Barry is faced with tough and emotional decisions, especially as he realizes that he can change the past and save his mom. Unfortunately much of the decisions Barry makes throughout the दिखाना have major consequences that can change his world forever. Evil super villains appear that wreak havoc on his life and the life of his फ्रेंड्स and family during each season as well, which is definitely a really cool incentive to watch this unforgettable show.


3. Hawaii Five-0
(7 Seasons 2010-)


Hawaii Five-O originally was a police procedural in 1968-1980 and got revamped in 2010 with new actors with the same premise as the original. Steve McGarrett is approached to start a new task force to get rid of the island’s worst criminals, he starts with his father’s murderer and recruits Detective Danny Williams (who has just moved from New Jersey for his daughter and is not a huge Hawaii fan), local and old friend Chin Ho Kelly and his pretty cousin Kono to शामिल होइए the task force. They deal with gangs, murders, kidnappers, drug dealers, all dangerous men who are not the island’s finest and need to be put behind bars, usually for good. The nice thing is that the cases and the interesting personal drama/mysteries balance themselves out perfectly. This दिखाना is really good and all the various cases will keep आप always guessing, and usually surprised. I’d recommend this दिखाना 100%.


2. Grimm-

(6 Seasons, 2011-2017)


This is one of my प्रिय shows! Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, descended from a long line of warriors known as Grimms, defends his city from सूपरनॅचुरल creatures known as Wesen, which are part human and part animal, which only Grimms and other Wesen can actually see. Fighting alongside his partner, Hank Griffin, colleague Sergeant Wu and फ्रेंड्स Monroe and Rosalee, Nick faces off against evil forces who want to do harm to him, his family, फ्रेंड्स and to Portland He also has a girlfriend Juliette, mysterious police captain Sean Renard, pretty (and evil) nemesis Adalind Schade and various royal enemies from Vienna, called the Royals, who are an enemy to Grimms and are terrible men who want to rule the world. The दिखाना is not for everyone though, due to violence but it’s still amazing.


1. 24

(8 technically 9 seasons, 2001-2010, 2014)


24 is the best दिखाना of all time! It easily #1, none can come even close! This is the one दिखाना I’ve ever been obsessed with and for very good reason. Agent Jack Bauer works for CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) dealing with (terrorists) assassination attempts, nuclear attacks, bio-terrorism, torture, traitors, sleeper cells, other bad guys in 24 hours (hence the name, 24). Each episode is an घंटा in the दिखाना (about 40 मिनटों for us without commercials) with 24 episodes, each covering an non-consecutive दिन in Bauer’s life. CTU helps stop the attacks with amazing agents, such as Nina Myers, Tony Almeida, George Mason, Chase Edmunds, Michelle Dessler, the सूची goes on and on of agents who risk their lives to save the world from merciless terrorists, time after time. और than one story goes on in the 24 hours though and we see the President deal with the attacks and internal issues and Jack’s wife Teri and daughter Kimberly have a nasty habit of accidentally becoming embroiled in the day’s events. This is a दिखाना everyone should watch because they will प्यार it. This दिखाना has cliffhangers at the end of every episode and is very easy to binge watch and watch the entire season in one sitting. (I’ve done it multiple times which means 17 straight hours) 24 is amazing!
