    "Game of Thrones Season 6 is truly a masterpiece."

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which TV seasons they think are perfect. Here are some of our favorite responses:

    There are some major spoilers ahead!

    1. First, The Good Place Season 1.


    "It is really entertaining, complex, hilarious and deep. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and just when I thought they were gonna end in a cliffhanger, BAM! They pulled off the biggest plot twist in a comedy series ever. I was blown away."


    2. Grey's Anatomy Season 5.


    "The season has Owen and Cristina's relationship, Alex helping Izzie through cancer, Meredith and Derek getting married, plus an incredibly emotional season finale. It's definitely one of the best seasons of the show."


    3. Schitt's Creek Season 4.

    CBC / Pop

    "From the budding romance between David and Patrick to Johnny and Stevie becoming business partners to Alexis and Ted's 'will they or won’t they' tension, I love every second of it. It's my absolutely favorite."


    4. Game of Thrones Season 6.


    "Game of Thrones Season 6 is truly a masterpiece. 'Battle of the Bastards' alone could carry the whole season, but every episode is great and so much happens. Also, 'Winds of Winter' is probably the best season finale of the entire series."


    5. Gilmore Girls Season 3.

    Warner Bros.

    "Season 3 includes such classics, like 'Take the Deviled Eggs,' 'Swan Song,' and 'They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?' The season is completely classic from start to finish."


    6. Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5.


    "Season 5 has so many amazing episodes and moments. Jake and Amy get engaged, Holt and Jake interrogating Sterling K. Brown's character, plus Rosa's coming out storyline. It's all perfect."


    7. Friends Season 2.


    "Bracelet buddies, her lobster, the list, the prom flashback, Richard, 'isn't that just kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck fantastic,' all these wonderful things came from Season 2."


    8. The Office Season 4.


    "It's the best thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I rewatch this season all the time because it's so good. This one season has so many iconic moments. I’ll never get tired of it."


    9. Euphoria Season 1.


    "The entire cast, led by Zendaya, is absolutely phenomenal. The cinematography and soundtrack is out of this world and completely takes the show to the next level. The inclusivity of different storylines from Rue’s addiction to Cassie’s acceptance of herself are all things teenagers today have to go through and overcome. It's absolutely brilliant and I can't wait for Season 2."


    10. Fleabag Season 2.

    Amazon Prime

    "The first episode is incredible, and the romance between the Hot Preist and Fleabag is absolutely gorgeous. I died inside when he left her at the bus stop at the end. It's a poignant ending to the series in general. Also, the Priest's speech about love made me sob. Literally the best season and series of the past decade at least."


    11. Mad Men Season 1.


    "From the pilot’s surprise ending of Don having a wife and kids to the slow season-long reveal of Don’s true identity, the entire season is perfect. Not to mention the gorgeous costumes and sets that looked so realistic."


    12. The Haunting of Hill House Season 1.


    "From the production value, the attention to details, the plot, and the performances, it's absolutely flawless. Haunting of Hill House is one of the consistently best TV shows to come out recently."


    13. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2.

    Warner Bros.

    "It is the perfect blend of horror, sadness, love and humor. Everything from Buffy’s relationship with Angel to her being the slayer and how it affected her interactions with friends and family. Also, Spike and Drusilla's introductions. The entire season is so well thought out that it felt like I was watching a really good movie."


    14. One Day at a Time Season 2.


    "Season 2 is amazing, especially the season finale. The season covers a lot of great topics like mental health and immigration. All the actors really shine in the finale when faced with Lydia in the hospital."


    15. Stranger Things Season 1.


    "I remember watching it twice the first weekend it came out. I absolutely love it."


    16. Parks and Rec Season 4.


    "Season 4 is absolutely brilliant. It includes a very engaging overarching storyline and has some of the funniest episodes of the entire series, plus it's when Ben and Leslie get and stay together. It has so many iconic moments and it’s my favorite season to rewatch."


    17. Supernatural Season 5.

    The CW

    "Season 5 was originally going to be the last season, so it's an epic, powerful, and heartbreaking journey from start to finish."


    18. Killing Eve Season 2.

    BBC America

    "Season 2 basically multiplied the intensity of Season 1 by 10. There is suspense, drama, and so many amazing Villanelle disguises. Plus, I love Villanelle and Eve’s ever changing relationship. It’s all perfect."


    19. Dexter Season 4.


    "The season of Dexter featuring the Trinity Killer is completely perfect from the first moment all the way to the horrific final moments of the season. Honestly, the show could've ended at the end of this season."


    20. Atypical Season 3.


    "Season 3 is perfect! I love how Sam’s autism is showcased as not only a weakness but a strength. Sam overcomes his challenges and adapts to college while Paige fails. Also, the entire storyline with Sam and Zahid's friendship going through a rough patch and Casey questioning her sexuality. I love it all so much."


    21. Wynonna Earp Season 2.


    "The storyline? Perfect. The Widows as villains? Perfect. Wayhaught? Perfect. Doc’s mustache? Perfect. Melanie Scrofano's acting? Absolutely perfect. The best season of television ever in my opinion."


    22. Dead to Me Season 1.


    "I know there’s only been one season, but it’s honestly perfect. Season 1 is funny, touching, and truly binge worthy."


    23. The Wire Season 1.


    "That’s that on that. It's no contest. The Wire Season 1 is perfect."


    24. The End of the F***ing World Season 1.


    "It is flawless from start to finish. Absolutely brilliant and so entertaining."


    25. Arrow Season 2.

    The CW

    "The development of the team and the heartbreaking turns kept me on the edge of my seat. It's the show's best season and one of my favorites."


    26. The Good Wife Season 5.


    "The writers spent seasons building up the relationships between all of the characters and then blew them up near the beginning of this season. It was a risky choice that was so well executed. Also, Will being shot led to a beautiful exploration of grief for the rest of the season. It's the definition of perfect television."


    27. The 100 Season 2.

    The CW

    "Season 2 is such a brilliant season. It includes every element that makes The 100 so amazing."


    28. The Americans Season 6.


    "The writers did such an amazing job at wrapping up all loose ends and giving the characters and fans the ending they deserved. I still think about the season because it's so amazing."


    29. The Flash Season 1.

    The CW

    "The entire season just comes full circle and the finale is such an emotional one. Not a lot of shows have a full season long story arc that actually works and makes sense, but The Flash did."


    30. Teen Wolf Season 3B.


    "This season was a breakthrough for Dylan O'Brien. His acting is unbelievable, especially because he played two versions of Stiles. The plot is very exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat. Also, the deaths are also heartbreakingly executed."


    31. Barry Season 2.


    "Season 2 is absolutely hysterical, but also touches on some really difficult topics like domestic abuse and depression. It's so wonderful. Also 'RonnyLily' is a masterpiece and Bill Hader is the greatest human alive."


    32. Veronica Mars Season 1.

    Warner Bros.

    "There is no other show that keeps you hooked from start to finish. Each episode is a different mystery and yet all centered around the one big mystery of the season. The characters’ backstories that develop through each episode and the plot twist at the end just add to the amazingness. It’s truly perfection."


    33. Succession Season 2.


    "This season is PERFECT! What I loved the most is that small details from Season 1 came back into play and Kendall's arc from the first scene to the last scene in the finale is incredible. TV this well made is rare and hasn't been seen since Breaking Bad."


    34. The O.C. Season 1.


    "It is perfection and has such a great story line. This season has the perfect mix of drama and comedy, in my opinion. I think this is not only a perfect season, but the best of the series."


    35. And finally, Friday Night Lights Season 1.


    "Coach Taylor having to overcome the loss of his star player and mentoring a very inexperienced young quarterback is just an exciting and emotional thing to watch. The character development and plot lines for every character are all so amazing."
