The Top 10 TV Shows of the 21st Century (So Far)

The past decade has been great for television. Film directors have taken their material to a whole new level, one that will be hard to top. Well lets get to it... 
P.S. these are chosen completely on my own opinions(:

10. Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)
When it was first announced that BSG was going to be remade many fans were skeptical that the crew would be able to succeed in keeping the story gold while redoing graphics and characters. However I think we can all admit that the show was a smashing success that left fans wanting more.

9. Modern Family (2009- )
This lighthearted comedy focuses on three different but connected families as they experience the challenges, joys, and lessons that life brings on a weekly basis. If you are looking for a new show and a laugh I recommend this series.

8. Lost (2004-2010)
In this drama/adventure a group of plane crash victims are forced to survive on a remote island.

7. Entourage (2004-2011)
The show follows the life of a fictional actor and his friends. It's a great show that allows you to see inside the life of a celebrity as they battle the pressure of money, fame, and the press.

6. Dexter (2006- )
Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is a Miami forensics specialist who finds he has homicidal urges. Using the skills his adopted father gave him, Dexter seeks out the cities criminals and uses them to quench his thirst for murder.

5. Game of Thrones (2011- )
Seven royal families fight to gain control of Westeros, a mystical land.

4. Arrested Development (2003-2013)

After George Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) gets arrested for business fraud his son Michael (Jason Bateman) is left in charge of the family business and the impossible task of keeping the family on track. If you haven't watched Arrested Development I seriously recommend it!

3. Community (2009- )
Originally the show focused on Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a lawyer forced to attend community college after being caught faking his law degree. However soon the show evened out focusing on Abed (Danny Pudi) and other cast members. Community is known for its hilarious situational humor and eccentric characters. When it comes to comedy Community is the way to go.

2. The Walking Dead (2010- )
This depiction of the zombie apocalypse is by far the most in-depth and realistic. The show is known for killing off main character like flies (lets face it, the same thing would happen in real life). The Walking Dead really makes you think what you would do in their situation.

1. Breaking Bad (2008- )
Possibly the best show ever created, Breaking Bad centers around an uptight school teacher who is informed he has cancer. Wishing to provide for his family and pay for his own treatment, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) teams up with an old student of his (Aaron Paul) in order to make crystal meth. Walter's transformation from loving husband, father, and school teacher into a hardened criminal is truly spectacular, I give props to the writers and the creator of the show!
