I think that Sherlock was great. True Detective season 1 was also outstanding

Hi Dibby, Breaking Bad and Dexter aren't on here despite having higher IMDb ratings than many so I'm guessing you're only including series that began after 2009? If so, I'd make a note of that in the intro.

He put in the top rated titles. Not the most popular, nor most voted. The lowest rated title (#35 on the list) is Daredevil....at 8.6 currently. O.I.T.N.B. is only 8.1!!!

Ed,

This is the exact reason.

Also, I made the list based on IMDb's Top 250 TV list.

Mr. Robot is within the Top 250 list, it debuted in 2015, but it's not included in your poll. Could you add it? It is considered to be one of the best if not the best TV Show by many.

MD,

IMDb polls are limited to 35 choices. We can not add more than 35 options to a poll.

The included titles are above in the ranking with respect to "Mr Robot".

Out of the shows you included, Rick and Morty for me, with Daredevil (and Jessica Jones) being a close second, then Sherlock (despite the somewhat crappy season 4), and then The Boys, which I loved, but it only has one season at the moment, so I will have to wait for what comes next.

Also, Had it been included, my vote would have Definitely gone towards Hannibal, or even Mr. Robot. Im also surprised that Homeland wasnt included. Its not my fave, but it Is a 2010s show.

I don't think Sherlock its season 4 was crappy, although I get some expected more and it is difficult to improve when the bar was set that high.

Overall I think many people underrate season 4 because they didn't like the grand finale, but I was in favor of that episode.

PS: I didn't vote for Rick and Morty, but would definitely approve if it ends up on number 1 or 2 because it is so underrated and my stupid friends still believe it is a childish shit show that they are never gonna watch...

   Well, the first episode was a Major letdown and felt so sloppy overall - Not to even mention the most cliche death scene of all time. Sadly, it just felt like they went there Only because certain people werent a couple irl anymore.
   Anyway, the second episode was fricking awesome, and the way it teased about whats to come in the finale was "Hell yeah - the first ep was just a fluke".
   So it felt that way All throughout the 3rd episode, which was gripping, engaging, a frickin Rush, and was just building up for Such an epic conclusion...
...but the conclusion we got was... hmm...
Its not that I cant appreciate the idea behind the ending - its that it was executed in Such an anticlimatic way, that it made my suspension of disbelief just crumble for the entire episode, since I already knew the episode was pretty ridiculous while watching it, despite my enjoyment of it.
   I know most people view the 3rd season as the worst one, but for me its my favorite overall, and the only season of the show I love in its entirety. Thats probably one of the reasons that makes me actually hate the first ep of season 4.

   Btw, as I said, I picked R&M only because Hannibal wasnt on the list, which is definitely my fave of this decade - have you watched it?

This was totally my same thought when I searched through the list...

Had to vote for Sherlock which would have been my 2nd if they included Mr. Robot in there.

They should really include Mr. Robot, IMO the second best TV Show ever made (after Breaking Bad) and thus the best of this decade!

The reason Mr. Robot is so good is you have a mind! Fans of The endless DC and Marvel shows just don't have the focus required that's needed to realize that a plot today requires you to recall a plot point from a season 1 episode. Even I miss things because of the excessive time between seasons. This will be one I will Binge on for a second run. It'll be worth the second trip! This is why Daredevil and Jessica Jones are the only two of their genre on the list. They're that well written. Naturally they're going to air less seasons than other shows of their type. They rely on a lot of dialogue. Great shows never seem to last.
Sad state of affairs. We can thank our system of education for the overall low attention span of the Millennials and an entertainment industry that coddles them.

Yeah, where is Mr. Robot?
Also, its cool that at least someone else recognizes the quality of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, Ed Jones.
For me, however, Hannibal is The best show of the decade, and I dont get How the hell its not on the list.
The same goes for The Leftovers - where is it?

I wanted to vote for Mr. Robot and then it turns out it was not included in the list...

However, it is very nice to see that the current top 3 consists of GoT, Sherlock and Rick & Morty. This is how I like it (when Mr. Robot is not a voting option...), I voted for Sherlock myself.

Shows NOT included on the list, which SHOULD be (Feel free to add shows Ive neglected) :

Adventure Time (2010)
Boardwalk Empire (2010)
Louie (2010)
Homeland (2011)
The Eric Andre Show (2012) - some might disagree, but it Is a tv show.
Hannibal (2013)
The Leftovers (2014)
Jessica Jones (2015)
Mr. Robot (2015)
The Grand Tour (2016) - not as great as the 2002 era Top Gear, but still, worthy of a mention.
Mindhunter (2017)
Chernobyl (2019) - if mini-series count.

Also, Yes - GoT is arguably The show of the decade when it come to its cultural impact, but in No Frickin WAY is it the best show of the decade - the last two seasons Made that engraved in stone.

Mini-series don't count, I think this was made clear in the description somewhere. Most of these series start out very professionally but got worse over the years. Mr. Robot would have been my choice here, so I am indeed a bit let down that it isn't in the list of options.

So, clearly everyone who voted for Game of Thrones hasn't caught up to the last season yet, right?  Right??  Because there's no way possible you could watch that and think it still deserves to be called "Best of the Decade!"

The director let us down during the last season, but apparently he had his reasons, there were some internal issues with the crew and actors. However, acting was still very much on point. By the way, not only the last season, but also the season before that one were bit less professional and high quality from a directing perspective.

Ed, my brother...you've always been helpful, and I always appreciate it.  Perhaps you can assist me?  I'm trying to change my Performance Range in my Profile.  While I consider myself to be versatile, I don't think I, or anyone other than Benjamin Button, can perform the range of 1-100.  When I go in to the area to Edit, it just does a never ending loading action, and if I close out the box it doesn't retain the changes.  HELP, Mr. Wizard of IMDb Lore!!  Thanks for whatever you might suggest, kind sir!

Not a fan of his polls. He leaves out the best stuff in favor of the IMDb ratings only.
Popularity be damned.

I said it before. For me, content is more important than 'popularity'.

Most importantly, titles are taken from official IMDb Top 250 TV list, not my or any other fan made list.

If we gave so much value to 'popularity', Avengers Endgame would have won Best Picture, not Parasite.
