2. Westworld

HBO

Number Of Seasons: 2 (Going On 3 in 2020)

Description: Robotic hosts allow human visitors to live out their fantasies consequence-free in this Western theme park.

Why It’s Good: It's smart, for starters. It raises a bunch of questions about what it means to be human and all sorts of other sweet Sci-Fi conundrums. Also, the concept is really awesome.

3. Rick And Morty

Adult Swim

Number Of Seasons: 3 (going on 4 in November)

Description: A scientist, Rick, and his grandson, Morty go on Sci-Fi themed adventures.

Why It’s Good: But of course, that description doesn't do the show justice. As a great internet user once said: "To Be Fair, You Have To Have a Very High IQ to Understand Rick and Morty"

But terrible memes aside, it is a really funny show. And pretty smart too.

4. Shameless (US)

Netflix

Number Of Seasons: 9

Description: Follow the lives of the Gallagher family and all of their "shameless" exploits.

Why It’s Good: Seriously, these people will want to make you take a shower. But they'll make you laugh and they'll make you feel while you do it. Laughing and crying in the shower, I just revealed my Wednesday night plans.

5. South Park

Comedy Central

Number Of Seasons: 22

Description: You know what South Park is about, come on. It's a raunchy cartoon that's probably one of the best TV shows ever.

Where to Watch: Crave, Comedy Central

6. Downton Abbey

Amazon Prime

Number Of Seasons: 6 (actually, their called "series" in British)

Description: A historical drama that follows the life of the Crawley family and their servants. Set in early 20th century England, it begins with the sinking of the Titanic and... well, if you know history, you know things don't get much better.

Why It’s Good: Like Game Of Thrones, you're given a whole bunch of different characters to fall in love with. The stories are tight and dramatic, the people are lovely and who doesn't like a good British TV show now and then?

Where to Watch: Amazon Prime

7. The Tudors

Showtime

Number Of Seasons: 4

Description: This show focuses on King Henry VIII's nearly 40-year reign in England. Historical dramas ftw!

Why It’s Good: If you liked Natalie Dormer as Margaery in Game Of Thrones then you'll absolutely adore her here. She's such a relic in this series and her performance will be drilled into your brain.

Where to Watch: BBC, Showtime, Netflix

8. Curb Your Enthusiasm

HBO

Number Of Seasons: 9

Description: Seinfeld co-creator Larry David plays a fictionalized version of himself going through his daily life. Trust me, it's more interesting than it sounds.

Why It’s Good: The best part about the show is that Larry always puts himself in the terrible situations he winds up in. And it's always because of some neurotic quirk he has. And it's all brilliant.

9. Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Adult Swim

Number Of Seasons: 11

Description: Google says this show is about "A trio of fast-food items works to solve mysteries in an edgy adult cartoon." But it's really just about the three of them, Master Shake, Frylock and Meatwad going through wacky situations.

Why It’s Good: This surreal, strange adult-oriented cartoon is probably your best introduction into the world of Adult Swim cartoons. Oh, and it's hilarious to boot.

14. Happy!

Syfy

Number Of Seasons: 2

Description: A corrupt, drunken cop and his daughter's imaginary friend go on a journey to save her from an evil Santa Claus.

Why It’s Good: It's gritty, it's dark, but it's set on Christmas and stars a cartoon imaginary horse. The weird factors are off the charts here, but it's not an alienating type of weird. It's a perfect juxtaposition.

Where to Watch: Syfy, Netflix
