Power Rankings: TV Shows We Should Have Watched By Now

The SAW Power Rankings is our weekly ranking of a certain movie-related topic. Please feel free to comment on our rankings and provide a list of your own in the comments below.

In the past we power ranked movies we should have seen by now, so it seems only fair we shine the same light on television. It’s easy to shake our heads at someone who hasn’t seen a film or two since to watch a film requires on average 2 hours tops of our time. But television is different. There are so many enthralling long running TV shows that it’s impossible to get to them all.

When you were born, your tastes and preferences, and channel restrictions are just a few factors that may have led to the shows below being skipped or pushed down the watchlist. Taking a quick gander, it’s clear that there are some acclaimed dramas that we have been missing out on. The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, Mad Men, and Westworld appear on a couple of lists. But there are also some interesting picks that perhaps don’t get enough discussion in the comments like Longmire and The Larry Sanders Show.

Let’s take a look at the TV skeletons hiding in the SAW writing team’s closets.
