Default Favorite TV Shows of the Decade (2010-2019)

According to most of critics and audience, it has been the golden age of television.
My favorite shows are from other eras, but there's no doubt that in this decade television had seen an unprecedented number of production, rich budgets and big screen stars willing to bring their talent to the small screen.

There's a similar thread for films, and television series deserves one too.
So... what are your favorite shows of the decade?
Post your top-whatever number fits you!

Too many to choose from. This was a great decade for TV. Assuming shows that started before 2010 don't count, the defining show of the 10's surely was Game of Thrones (which was fantastic, final season controversy or not). Some other shows that really stood out to me:

- Dark: brilliantly constructed web of storylines
- The Expanse: finally a great hard sci-fi show
- Netflix Marvel shows: comic-book series done right
- Mr. Robot: fantastic cyber paranoia series
- Handmaid's Tale: eye-opening dystopian show

Justified. Excellent from start to finish. And, no need to do follow-up reading to fully understand it.

The Arrowverse. Arrow started it all in 2012 and now we have a ton of shows of various heroes.

Matt Smith's run of Doctor who. One of my all time favorites

lol "golden age". Always makes me laugh, that one.

Er... Person of Interest... Elementary... Fringe... The Mentalist...

....That's about it, really. Pretty awful decade for TV (they even managed to do the impossible and destroy Doctor Who beyond all recognition or hope of recovery), and the 2020s look even worse.

In no particular order:

- The Big Bang Theory
- Mom
- Blue Bloods
- Justified
- Ash vs. Evil Dead
- Bates Motel
- Longmire
- Ripper Street

I also liked the first five seasons of Arrow and the first two of The Flash, but I'm not sure if I should count them since I eventually stopped watching them. Same for Elementary. Watched the first five seasons but never finished it because CBS's handling of the last two caused me to lose track of it.

Pretty much stopped watching TV about 5 years ago and with the exception of His Dark Materials everything I've tried recently has been awful including...

"New" Doctor Who (A once great show seemingly terminally compromised by dreadful casting, writing and show runner)
Watchmen (It's not ****ing Watchmen, it's an embarrassment)
Vic & Bob's Big Night Out (You're not relevant anymore, you're no longer funny and just stop, OK?)
War of the Worlds (Producers: "Let's make the central character an American single mother" BBC: "Yes, that'll work")
Fleabag (Written by and starring the woman who's about to temporarily kill the Bond franchise dead)

The only non-documentary programs from the last 10 years I remember really enjoying and actually bought the DVDs of were The Detectorists and Toast of London.

I think it's safe to say that Game of Thrones was the TV success of the decade despite its crashing and burning in the end.

Well, I was "quoting" what critics pretty much say
But to be honest I do agree with you: there are always some good shows to be watched, but to me nothing in this decade tops the best of the previous ones (except Twin Peaks).
