Posted on

1. Sons of Anarchy

FX / Via

Heading into its 7th and final season on FX, Sons of Anarchy tells the story of the motorcycle club from which it gets it's name. Charlie Hunnam plays Jax Teller, an outlaw who wants nothing more than to move his club in the right direction, the way his father intended it to be, but will the rest of SAMCRO be with him, or against him? Find out why this is FX's highest rated program and catch up before the sure-to-be heart wrenching series finale.

Remember: In this drama, everyone lives and dies for the club. Who will make it to the final ride?

Seasons available: 1 - 6

2. Arrow

The CW / Via

This is superhero television done right. The CW's Arrow tells the story of Oliver Queen, a billionaire playboy who is shipwrecked and presumed dead for five years. Upon his return to Starling City, Oliver comes home a changed man, even taking up the mantle of a hooded vigilante, righting the wrongs of those who have failed his city. What exactly happened to him on that island? Find out the answer to this question and more in this fantastic DC Comics series.

Seasons available: 1 - 2

3. How I Met Your Mother

CBS / Via

Even at it's worst, How I Met Your Mother was still hilarious. It is, what I consider, the Seinfeld of this generation. You won't find a sitcom that is as consistently funny, heartwarming, and amazing as HIMYM anywhere else. By the end of this series, you'll feel as if you're really friends with Lilly, Marshall, Robin, Barney, and Ted, which is something that is rare in a TV sitcom. This show will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will give you goosebumps, and it will never be forgotten.

Get ready to reference this one to death.

Seasons available: 1 - 9

4. The Walking Dead

AMC / Via

If you're one of the few that don't watch the highest rated drama on TV right now, you're really missing out. The show is entering it's fifth (and arguably best) season right now, but will be taking a midseason break come December, giving you more than enough time to catch up on the shows record breaking first four seasons.

Seasons available: 1 - 4

5. The Following

FOX / Via

Kevin Bacon stars in this thriller about detective Ryan Hardy's search for notorious and brutal serial killer Joe Carroll. Almost every episode of this show leaves you wanting to know what happens next and through two seasons it has stayed fresh and entertaining. The second season took the premise of the show to a whole new level of creepy and awesome. If you're a fan of horror, K-Bakes, or just thrillers in general, you need to check this show out immediately. Catch up on the first two seasons before season three premieres next year.

Seasons available: 1 - 2

6. The League

FXX / Via

Even if you don't like football, or fantasy football for that matter, The League is still well worth your time. The show follows a group of friends in their quest to win the coveted Shiva and features the comedic talents of Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Katie Aselton, Stephen Rannazzisi, and Mark Duplass. It's semi-scripted, so a lot of the funny has to do with its excellent cast. I can almost guarantee that you know at least one person you can relate to each character, which is what makes this show so great. Even in it's absurdity, its still so relatable. Do yourself a favor and give this show a chance, you won't regret it.

Seasons available: 1 - 5

7. Breaking Bad

AMC / Via

If you haven't experience this show yet, you need to. If you have, you know you can do it again. The transformation of Walter White from high school chemistry teacher to meth kingpin is up for debate as the best drama to ever appear on television. Each episode of this show is unreal and the connection that it has with it's audience is unparalleled. The show really picks up after it's eight episode first season, but never slows down until it's all over. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will make you love (and hate) their characters, but you will never find a pair of actors that work better together. Just hope you don't want to get those toys made in their likeness because, well, you probably won't find them.

Seasons available: 1 - 5

8. Once Upon a Time

ABC / Via

Once Upon a Time tells the story of a small town in Maine called Storybrooke. Sounds an awful lot like, Story Book, doesn't it? Well, that's because the residents of Storybrooke are actually all of your favorite fairy tale and Disney characters! They just don't know it yet. Once propels us into a world that we only could have dreamed of as children. Get ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy a fun twist on some very familiar stories.

Fun Fact: If you love anything Frozen, as most do, the shows 4th and current season is Frozen themed.

Seasons available: 1 - 3

9. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

FXX / Via

I have not seen an episode of Sunny that hasn't made me laugh hysterically at least once. Basically, there is no other show like it. The style of comedy that the cast brings to the table is just so unique and bizarre that you can't help but instantly fall in love with it. Like any show, some episodes are better than others, but you can finish an entire season in a day if you wanted to. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns this January on FXX.

Seasons available: 1 - 8

10. Hell On Wheels

AMC / Via

This cowboy drama about an outlaw looking for the men who killed his wife in post-Civil War America has grown into one of AMC's hidden gems. On a network that is primarily associated with The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, it's nice to see other show's gaining popularity. It's set during the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad and offers intriguing characters and story lines that keep bringing viewers back for more.

Series highlight: The Swede and all his glory.

Seasons available: 1 - 3

11. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

Miramax / Via

If you're a fan of Robert Rodriguez, or the movie from which this series is based off of, you need to watch this show. It's got an awesome cast and a cool feel to it that isn't like anything I've ever seen in a show before. Taking inspiration from the movie, the series tells a new story that will make fans of the films very happy. If you've never seen the movies, this show will get you interested in finally watching them (spoiler alert: they're pretty awesome). This series airs on the El Rey Network, which I don't think anybody actually gets, so you're probably going to have to wait for season two to pop up on Netflix at some point like the rest of us. If not, I envy you.
