Ranked Best to Worst
Yes I know there are some 9/10's ranked lower than 8/10's. This is purely a subject matter decision, no matter how well-made the series is.
I haven't seen every episode of a bunch of these, but i've seen enough to form an opinion.
There are still a lot of series' I haven't seen, but want to.
