Take a look at The Top 10 Shows as per IMDb Rankings:
1. Breaking Bad
The Web Series Stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as leads, Breaking Bad had a successful run of five seasons and is often regarded as one of the most influential shows in the era. Created by Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad had an anti-hero at the center who starts off as an underconfident school teacher but soon turns into meth-cooking after getting to know that he is suffering from Stage 3 prolonged Cancer. After Web Series’s success, the makers later thought of getting a spin-off called Better Call Saul which is still running. Breaking Bad also had a follow-up movie released in 2019, titled El Camino.
2. Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones might have ended on a bitter note but the show certainly did make a place for itself in pop culture and as well as in the hearts of fans. A Song of Ice and Fire based on George RR Martin’s became a huge hit. The show followed the books for the first few seasons but went off text in the later seasons. Created by David Benioff and DB Weiss, Game of Thrones is known for narrating a complicated story with numerous characters that slowly unraveled in the span of eight seasons. It’s a must-watch for all the Web Series audience.
It is a limited series that recapped the events of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that happened in the year 1986 and it also acknowledges the form in which the USSR dealt with all the crisis. Created by Craig Mazin, it’s a five-episode series that was praised for its in-depth research, although many USSR loyalists raised a controversial statement which states that the show was created while keeping American propaganda in mind. Nevertheless, from a storytelling point of view, the show was quite gripping and retains one of the top spots on IMDb’s list of Top 250 TV Shows of all time.
4. Band of Brothers
Created by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, this miniseries had a short run of ten episodes in 2001 but is still held in high regard when it comes to ranking the best TV shows of all time. Set during World War II, the series follows a group of American soldiers during the war. While the show has a large ensemble cast, each episode follows the journey of a single soldier. The show starred actors like Damien Lewis and Ron Livingston, among others.
One of the best shows of its time, Sherlock Web Series season one was aired in the year 2010 and ended in 2017 with a total of 4 seasons and 15 episodes. It is one of a Top Rated web Series of all time. Starring legendary Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and Una Stubbs as leads. Created by
Mark Gatiss, and Steven Moffat. Based on a modern update that finds the famous sleuth and his doctor partner solving crime in 21st century London.
6. Rick and Morty
It’s an animated series, Rick and Morty started in the year 2013 and since then it has created a very huge loyal fanbase for itself around the globe. The show follows the synopsis that a crazy scientist Rick whose shenanigans with grandson Morty often land them both in a soup of trouble. The adventures of Rick and Morty take place in different dimensions as Rick plays with the laws of physics. Definitely a must-watch Animated show.
7. The Wire
Still, in 2021 no Web Series can rule out The Wire as it has always stayed at the top of any ‘Best TV shows’ list. The Wire has become a classic television show, Premiered in the year 2002, the five seasons of show are still seen as the pinnacle of crime drama television and have inspired dozens of shows that tried to ape what they aced. The five seasons of the show focus on five different sectors of crime in the city of Baltimore. The large cast of the show also includes names like Idris Elba, Dominic West, among others. Definitely a show that can’t be missed out.
Okay so does this show even need an introduction as I don’t think so, because of its popularity around the globe. No other show can beat its fan following and the recently released Friends: Reunion just proves that. Still, if you don’t know about the show then in a short synopsis I will say that it follows the personal and professional lives of six twenty to thirty-something-year-old friends living in Manhattan.
9. Avatar: The Last Airbender
Avatar: The Last Airbender is often regarded as one of the best-animated series of all time. The show centers around the mythology that those who can manipulate all the four elements — water, earth, fire, air – can create harmony between the four nations of the world. Twelve-year-old Aang is the current Avatar and takes the journey to end the Fire Nation’s war with the other nations. After Rick and Morty one should definitely watch this show.
10. The Sopranos
The Sopranos is created by David Chase, the same way The Wire is often seen as one of the best television shows it also has the same feature. The six seasons of the show follow the character Tony Soprano, a mobster who is trying to strike the perfect balance between his work as the head of the Soprano family, and his family life.
