Best to remain “Friends”.
The publication the Hollywood Reporter interviewed 2.8 thousand people from the industry — actors, producers, Directors and other professions — and made a rating of the best series of all time, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to rusjev.net.
The list of 100 shows. At the end, “Desperate Housewives” “Everybody loves Raymond” and “Star cruiser “Galaxy” in the middle was a “Law and order”, “the Flintstones”, “house of cards”, “twin Peaks” and “Doctor Who” and the top ten were undoubted hits of recent years.
10. “The simpsons”.
Of course, you can be surprised that animated show about the life and the yellow family of Springfield, running for 26 years on Fox, was only tenth. On the other hand, history will put everything in its place – having noticed on the screen the familiar landscape, or hearing the distinctive theme music screen saver, rare, viewers will be able to resist in order not to watch the series to end. And then another one. And again. It is unlikely that those same “Friends” can boast the same devoted fans.
The 9th place. “Mad men”.
The series is under the dual name of Mad Men, which means mad men, and employees of advertising agencies who occupied the Madison Avenue in new York. The series came out in 2007-20015 years, but it is the beginning of the 1960s- a time when American society changed dramatically. It is a popular drama show (four Emmy awards in a row) inspired by the Russian film Director and producer Valery Todorovsky in the series “the Thaw”, which became the event for our TV.
8th place. “I love Lucy”.
Ancient sitcom, which appeared on CBS in the 1950s, says that the wife of popular actor and singer is also trying to become famous, but finds lack of understanding spouse. The performer of the title role of Lucille ball has long exploited the audience any way, participating in programs like “the Lucy Show” or series “Life with Lucy”.
7th place. Saturday Night Live.
“Saturday night live” is, of course, not the TV show and entertainment program with skits, jokes and guest stars. But it is already 40 years old and has itself become a series – the audience are not only tracking what is happening on the screen, but the events in and around SNL.
The 6th place. “The Sopranos”.
Crime drama about the family of gangster Tony Soprano, brilliantly played by actor James of Gandolfini (died in 2013). The series studied not only the criminal life of Italian-American mafia, but also family problems Tony. And since it was on cable HBO and intended solely for adult viewing audience, it had nudity, violence, swearing – in General, all that a little later (“the Sopranos” ended in 2007) the audience appreciated and in another series channel, “Game of thrones”.
5th place. “Seinfeld.”
The sitcom, which can be called the mastermind behind “Friends.” He was on NBC for nine years – from 1989 to 1998, and after several times fell on the top ranks of various tolerating, for example, was the best according to the magazine TV Guide and the third in the list of Entertainment Weekly.
4th place. “Game of thrones”.
Fantasy drama based on the series of novels by George R. R. Martin’s world of Westeros, Iron throne, winter, which is close, and mother of dragons. The series has already exceeded the equator – five seasons out of a possible eight (or even ten), but the amount of violence on the screen continues to shock his adoring fans. It is curious that Martin has not yet finished their Saga – output of the sixth volume is scheduled for 2016, and when will the seventh, final, unknown.
The 3rd place. The x-files.
Nine seasons, FBI agents Mulder and Scully searched for the truth, which have always been somewhere near. Aliens, conspiracy theories – they were interested in everything connected with extraterrestrial civilizations. The final was open – and to answer all questions, in 2016 the x-files returns on the screens. The main role will perform again David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
2nd place. “Breaking bad”.
Second place went to the history of the school chemistry teacher who, after learned that he had cancer, he began to do drugs. The series has twice received the Emmy as the best dramatic show and brought four awards to lead actor Bryan Cranston.
1st place. “Friends.”
