1. BoJack Horseman (2014–2020)

TV-MA | 25 min | Animation, Comedy, Drama

BoJack Horseman was the star of the hit television show "Horsin' Around" in the '80s and '90s, now he's washed up, living in Hollywood, complaining about everything, and wearing colorful sweaters.

Stars: Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul

Votes: 88,273

In season 5 Raphael Bob-Waksburg's Hollywoo satire goes bleaker and darker than ever before.

2. The Guest Book (2017– )

TV-MA | 30 min | Comedy

For a tiny cottage in a tiny town, this place sure will see lots of baggage. Each episode, new guests will bring their own special brand of crazy to this new TBS comedy from My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia.

Stars: Carly Jibson, Eddie Steeples, Charles Robinson, Lou Wilson

Votes: 2,133

Thinly conceived anthology from the "My Name Is Earl" guy, back to peddle his usual mean, toothless shtick.

3. Manifest (2018– )

TV-14 | 43 min | Drama, Mystery

After being presumed dead, passengers onboard Flight 828 return and discover the world has aged five years. As they reintegrate into society, they begin to experience guiding voices and visions, and soon a deeper mystery unfolds.

Stars: Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, Athena Karkanis

Votes: 18,034

It's like Lost, but with the mawkish sentimentality of This Is Us at its sappiest. But wait! It's also a police procedural!

4. Killing Eve (2018– )

TV-14 | 42 min | Action, Adventure, Drama

After a series of events, the lives of a security operative and an assassin become inextricably linked.

Stars: Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw, Kim Bodnia

Votes: 61,810

strong first season, darkly comic and deftly plotted, with a great cast

5. The Good Place (2016–2020)

TV-PG | 22 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Four people and their otherworldly frienemy struggle in the afterlife to define what it means to be good.

Stars: Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D'Arcy Carden

Votes: 88,411

The writing on this show is so good. Time and again, the writers seems to write themselves into an impossible corner, and their response is to plow through the wall. You never know where things are going to go next.

6. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2015–2019)

TV-14 | 42 min | Comedy, Musical

A young woman abandons a choice job at a law firm and her life in New York in an attempt to find happiness in the unlikely locale of West Covina, California.

Stars: Rachel Bloom, Donna Lynne Champlin, Vincent Rodriguez III, Pete Gardner

Votes: 15,099

Craziness is fun, or it can be fun to watch, anyway. Responsibility has its perks, but it isn't exciting the way irrational behavior can be; it's boring and predictable, or so the stigma goes. Now, as we enter the show's endgame, Rebecca's in a better place emotionally, but maybe the pure fun, the chaos isn't there anymore. Which is okay.

7. The Walking Dead (2010– )

TV-MA | 44 min | Drama, Horror, Thriller

Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma to learn the world is in ruins, and must lead a group of survivors to stay alive.

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Danai Gurira

Votes: 816,551

I'm gonna watch it someday, I guess, but I'm in no hurry. Billing this season as "Rick Grimes' Final Episodes" seems like a dumb move, and its hard for me to invest in a show that's just going to kill off its protagonist and keep going. This will make the show depart entirely from the blueprint of Kirkman's comic books, which let's face it aren't great, but at least have a story in mind: a father in a dangerous world fights to survive, to protect his son, and to make the world a place worth living in. Without that story, Walking Dead won't have much to make the grim slog worth it anymore, and it's already hemorrhaging viewers. ... Watching now, and I'm in that new season tabula rasa honeymoon phase, where I say "Hey, they fixed the show, and things are running smoothly now! Took 9 season to do it, but by Jove I think they got it!" Aside from the lousy sendoff for Rick Grimes, it's been pretty good. Characters get a little space to breathe, and to matter, to resonate with the viewer as actual people, and to connect in ways that feel real. I don't think that the show has ever really been able to do that, maybe for the main cast in fits and spurts, but never for the whole ensemble, and definitely never for new characters who've just been introduced. Come the finale, I'll be grousing again, maybe, but for now we're on easy street, and it feels so... tolerable.

8. Talking Dead (2011– )

TV-14 | 44 min | Talk-Show

A talk show about The Walking Dead (2010) and Fear the Walking Dead (2015).

Stars: Chris Hardwick, Denise M. Huth, Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln

Votes: 3,222

Meanwhile, this shit can get gone. I don't want to see this effusive moron gush about a deeply mediocre tv show and think about how he's an abusive monster. I don't want to see a frame of it, and the best way to do that is probably not watch the flagship show period. Not on DVR, and certainly not live, where he will pop up and yammer away right off the bat when they cut to commerical. With The Walking Dead bleeding out in the ratings, the dumb little hype show might get the axe.

9. Better Call Saul (2015– )

TV-MA | 46 min | Crime, Drama

The trials and tribulations of criminal lawyer Jimmy McGill in the time before he established his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Stars: Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Patrick Fabian

Votes: 270,498

Jimmy McGill's slow corruption of the soul is as riveting as ever.

10. Disenchantment (2018– )

TV-14 | 30 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

Princess Tiabeanie, 'Bean', is annoyed at her imminent arranged marriage to Prince Merkimer. Then she meets Luci, a demon, and Elfo, an elf, and things get rather exciting, and dangerous.

Stars: Abbi Jacobson, Eric André, Nat Faxon, John DiMaggio

Votes: 37,422

So, this pilot was not as good as the premiere of Futurama, which in turn I have long contended to be a subpar pilot, probably because I felt at the time that it wasn't as funny as an episode of the Simpsons. But that's the deal with pilots: they must establish characters, place and plot, and if the guys who made the pilot want another episode it should also make us laugh, feel or maybe just think. That's a lot to fit into 30 minutes, so sometimes characters come across a little too broad, jokes don't land the way they should, and exposition gets passed off as dialog. I did laugh a fair bit. There were times where I wasn't sure if I should laugh, which probably means Matt Groening hit me where he wanted to. And there were gags that fell astoundingly flat. For instance, why does a racist deer happen upon our heroes as they sleep? Do all the deer in this fantasy world talk? Are all the deer racists? Do out heroes know the deer are racists? Is this going to come up again? What bearing does it have on anything? Was it supposed to be funny? I can tell I'm getting a little too hung up on the whole racist deer thing. But it's fairly puzzling. Grasping for a punchline that wasn't there, one of my viewing companions said, "Rednecks hunt deer. They aren't supposed to BE rednecks."

Anyway, I'll keep with it for a bit. I hope we haven't seen the last of the off brand Keebler elf kingdom, because that was the funniest bit by far.

11. Catastrophe (2015–2019)

TV-MA | 24 min | Comedy

American boy Rob gets Irish girl Sharon pregnant while they hook up for a week while on a business trip to London.

Stars: Sharon Horgan, Rob Delaney, Mark Bonnar, Ashley Jensen

Votes: 14,003

Horgan and Delaney wrote and star in this sitcom, about a london schoolteacher and a Boston ad executive who wind up in a family way after a drunken hook-up. Horgan has a knack for finding the charm of the most abrasive characters, and Delaney is similarly complex, a big-hearted easy-going lug who explodes into scathing fits of anger when under stress.

12. F Is for Family (2015– )

TV-MA | 30 min | Animation, Comedy, Drama

Follow the Murphy family back to the 1970s, when kids roamed wild, beer flowed freely and nothing came between a man and his TV.

Stars: Bill Burr, Laura Dern, Justin Long, Debi Derryberry

Votes: 24,083

This show has a real problem with its secondary characters, any of which are barely more than one note two seasons in. I like it, though. The Murphys are all well drawn characters. Justin Long is funny as Kevin, the moody teen son, as is Bill Burr, essentially adopting the persona of his own father as cranky paterfamilas Frank. Laura Dern, naturally, is the MVP, with top-notch voice work. As Sue Murphy, long-suffering mother to the clan and now, in the wake of Frank's unemployment, the bread-winner as well, she shades her voice with just a hint of tension, which escalates into screaming matches in which she holds her own against the vociferous Burr.

13. Futurama (1999–2013)

TV-14 | 22 min | Animation, Comedy, Sci-Fi

Philip J. Fry, a pizza delivery boy, is accidentally frozen in 1999 and thawed out on New Year's Eve 2999.

Stars: Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille

Votes: 204,299

Done with the last season. I've sort of warmed to the new episodes; they're not "new Simpsons episodes" bad. In fact, I've genuinely enjoyed some in this final stretch: "Game of Tones" is another elegaic foray into Fry's past life which stands the equal of "The Luck of the Fryrish" or "Jurassic Bark", "Stench and Stenchibility" is a disgusting yet heartwarming romance featuring Dr Zoidberg, and "Meanwhile" is a pretty good finale, which lets us see Fry and Leela grow old together while leaving the door open for future adventures, a neat way of having your cake and eating it too.

14. Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988–1999)

TV-14 | 92 min | Comedy, Sci-Fi

In the not-too-distant future Joel Robinson is held captive by Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank, forced to watch B-Grade movies on the Satellite of Love with the help of his robot friends: Cambot, Gypsy, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot.

Stars: Joel Hodgson, Michael J. Nelson, Trace Beaulieu, Kevin Murphy

Votes: 22,370

15. Heathers (2018– )

TV-MA | 30 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama

TV version of a 1988 black comedy, 'Heathers,' where an outcast student plots to kill the cool kids.

Stars: Grace Victoria Cox, Melanie Field, James Scully, Brendan Scannell

Votes: 2,119

This is a big waste of time in the style of American Horror Story. Characters die and come back just because the writers seemingly can't spin the wheel of plot without them. There is no rooting interest; the Heathers are of course horrible and self-centered. JD is a dead-eyed sociopath without the rascally charm Christian Slater brought to the role. And Veronica is awful, too. The adults are oblivious, and the other students are sheep. Seemingly, the creators can't wait for someone to come along and kill all these strawmen they've created, and honey, that's a bad look.

16. Insatiable (2018–2019)

TV-MA | 45 min | Comedy, Drama, Thriller

A disgraced, dissatisfied civil lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach takes on a vengeful, bullied teenager as his client and has no idea what he's about to unleash upon the world.

Stars: Dallas Roberts, Debby Ryan, Christopher Gorham, Kimmy Shields

Votes: 20,020

This show is bad, and worse, it's boring.

An unlikely trio travel through time in order to battle unknown criminals and protect history as we know it.

Stars: Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Paterson Joseph

Votes: 33,108

december 20th Inevitably, this finale rushes through a bunch of obvious plot points. As such, it's a fitting culmination of this show, for all its fits and starts.

20. GLOW (2017– )

TV-MA | 35 min | Comedy, Drama, Sport

A look at the personal and professional lives of a group of women who perform for a wrestling organization in Los Angeles during the 1980s.

Dud finds himself deposited by fate at the doorstep of Lodge 49, a dusty fraternal order that offers cheap beer and strange alchemical philosophies.

Stars: Wyatt Russell, Brent Jennings, Sonya Cassidy, Linda Emond

Votes: 2,619

Wry, shambling existential buddy comedy

27. Trust (2018– )

TV-MA | 60 min | Biography, Crime, Drama

Rome, 1973. John Paul Getty III, the heir and younger member of an oil tycoons' saga, is kidnapped by the Italian mafia in order to get a ransom.

Stars: Harris Dickinson, Donald Sutherland, Hilary Swank, Luca Marinelli

Votes: 5,360

Thus far, a much better version of this tale than the achingly generic "All the Money in the World", with a highlight in Brendan Fraser's wry, 4th-wall-breaking performance as Getty fixer Fletcher Chase.

28. Black Books (2000–2004)

TV-PG | 25 min | Comedy

Stars: Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, Victoria Pedretti

Votes: 138,677

Well-crafted horror tale with a great cast. Unfortunately the ending isn't quite as thrilling as what comes before.

31. I Feel Bad (2018– )

TV-14 | 30 min | Comedy

Perfect mom, wife, daughter, friend, and boss Emet is learning to be OK with being imperfect.

Stars: Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Madhur Jaffrey, James Buckley

Votes: 1,468

Amy Poehler produces this sitcom from the very funny Aseem Batra. Sad to say, it's not a great showcase for their talents. It's very broad and feels like it's been market tested to death. Emet's frustrations with her unceasingly critical mother can be amusing. However too much time is devoted to the cutesy antics of her children and to her job at a video game design company. At the office Emet hangs out with a bunch of nerdy dudebros who seem like they've been shoehorned in to attract that most coveted of demographics, and nobody ever seems to do any work.

32. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018– )

TV-14 | 60 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

As her 16th birthday nears, Sabrina must choose between the witch world of her family and the human world of her friends. Based on the Archie comic.

Stars: Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo

Votes: 62,381

underwhelmed by the pilot

34. Supergirl (2015– )

TV-PG | 43 min | Action, Adventure, Drama

The adventures of Superman's cousin in her own superhero career.

Stars: Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Mehcad Brooks

Votes: 104,522

I was thinking maybe I'd start this up again. Then I saw a promo with a villain bellowing "I will make you dead!", and I realized that the quality of writing in the Berlantiverse has actually gone down somehow. Who knew that there was any further to fall? So screw that noise.

35. Nightflyers (2018)

TV-14 | 60 min | Horror, Sci-Fi

A crew of scientists embark on a mission aboard a ship called the Nightflyer to investigate a mysterious alien signal, but soon begin to question if there is already something on-board the Nightflyer with them.

39. The Critic (1994–2001)

TV-14 | 522 min | Animation, Comedy, Drama

Jay Sherman is a New York film critic who has to review films he doesn't like for a living.

Stars: Jon Lovitz, Nick Jameson, Maurice LaMarche, Nancy Cartwright

Votes: 7,182

Sony has a streaming serivce called Crackle. It is free, so it has ads, and the video quality is not very good. It has Al Jean's animated sitcom The Critic, starring Jon Lovitz, so it's not all bad.

The Critic, or at least the pilot, is however not as good as I remember.

40. Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (2017– )

Focuses on the key life moments for Gavin and Stacey, who try to maintain their relationship while combining their polarizing families' lives.

Stars: Jason Ritter, Alexis Bledel, Kerri Kenney, Ashlie Atkinson

Votes: 217

What other top flight entertainment is available on Crackle, you ask? Submitted for your approval: a five year old American remake of Beeb sitcom "Gavin and Stacy", premiering on the streaming platform for the first time anywhere. Crackle's synopsis says "Working class anger turns deadly in a terrifying thriller that gives the 1% a taste of their own medicine." Sounds like a bold departure from the source material!

42. Black Dynamite (2011–2015)

The Black Dynamite animated series further chronicles the exploits of the central character, Black Dynamite and his crew. Action comedy-spoof that follows ex-C.I.A. Agent and full-time ... See full summary »

Stars: Michael Jai White, Byron Minns, Kym Whitley, Tommy Davidson

Votes: 3,697

Anime style version of Michael Jai White's hilarious blaxploitation spoof loses the specificity of the movie's parody, trading it for Adult Swim's lazy brand of humor, which holds that nothing can be funnier than a reference to something you saw on tv decades ago.

43. Austin City Limits (1975– )
