People Are Sharing Which TV Shows They Think Have Never Had A Bad Episode

We all have our favorite TV shows. In some cases, we know which episodes are worth skipping over. In other cases, though, it seems like the showrunners never got anything wrong.

If you're looking for something to shake up your Friends habit, the r/askreddit thread, "What's a show that never had a bad episode?" would be a great place to start.

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

"The way the real world was shown and explained was magical. It’s one of the few shows with not a single bad episode, and even help you learn to not be a bad person. We should all strive to be a little more like Mister Rogers each day."


Band of Brothers

"It’s been a while since I watched Band of Brothers, so time for a rewatch. I’ve watched The Pacific as well, but not as much as BoB, also because I know more about the events in BoB, so it speaks to me on another level."


Fawlty Towers

"A lot of British sitcoms are well loved because of the simple fact they only had a handful of episodes. Fawlty Towers ran for two seasons of six episodes each. They quit whilst they were ahead."



"I love Spaced, but if in 2001 you told me that in twenty years time, Tim from Spaced and Tim from The Office would both be Hollywood a-listers, I'd have laughed at you. Yet here we are."


Joy of Painting

"One of the interesting things about Bob Ross is that he served in the Air Force for 20 years. He said part of the reason that he was so soft-spoken on his show that is that he got tired of yelling at people as a first sergeant and wanted to do something more chill after retiring."


Planet Earth

"Practically any nature documentary with David Attenborough is excellent in my book."


"I gotta watch that."



"So good! Though the ending just pisses me off. I have no patience for people who know what they need and want to be happy but refuse it because of pride or some stupid vow/promise they made to themselves or someone else x years ago."



"This is why I love dedicated mini-series more than hopeful pilot seasons... The story is usually better paced and written."


What We Do in the Shadows

"The moment the crepe paper joke was made in the first episode I fell in love with the show. I still think about crepe paper and get the hysterical giggles."



"I read at one point that NoHo Hank was supposed to be a one and done side character, quickly killed off. Instead, the actor nailed the role so hard that everyone fell in love with him and plans were quickly changed to incorporate him more fully!"


Gravity Falls

"The thing about kids shows (I think) is that sometimes they get a bunch of really talented people working on them, but the network executives ignore it because 'it's just a kids show.' If it goes on long enough they realize they were bamboozled and swoop in to ruin it."



"Criminally overlooked show. In my eyes, it's easily the best historical show for presenting its story within a world that feels real. It doesn't feel like modern morality and values against a historical backdrop which a lot of media falls into the trap of, characters act in ways we may find abhorrent that were probably the norm."


Malcolm in the Middle

"Favorite episode is when Hal is on trial for embezzlement and Malcom figures all the days are Fridays. Well Hal hasn't worked a Friday in 15 years and had all the ticket stubs, pictures, and other knickknacks to prove it."


The Queen's Gambit

"I loved that Netflix series and I’m glad they ended it after the first season. I think if it was dragged onto second season it could’ve went downhill."


Better Call Saul

"Can't believe I had to scroll this far to find BCS. By far one of the best shows out there! It's the Breaking Bad crew, but with training! Can't wait for the final season!"



"I must be getting old because I remember when this would have automatically been the top of the thread for a question like this and I'm genuinely surprised I had to scroll this far down to find it."


Ted Lasso

"I truly love this show, just made my house mate watch it as well. Roy Kent yelling '[Expletive]!' every time he realized Ted made him step up, lol."


The Wire

"Bubbles is the absolute soul of that show and it makes me so unbelievably happy that he survives all the way to the very end. I feel like that alone is one of the most poignant things about the entire series and it wraps it all up in a bow."


Freaks and Geeks

"Sometimes I wish I’d never heard of it. That way I’d be able to watch it again for the first time."



"This is what I was thinking.. if you asked me what is the worst part of Succession, I honestly don't know, nothing comes to mind. If anything, the lower rated episodes seem to be those in the beginning, because it took a little bit of work to establish everybody and get the ball rolling. But once it got rolling, it never stopped."
