9. Two meters underground (2001 – 2005)
A different series from the rest of this list. In this case, Six Feet Under (Six Feet Under) masterfully deals with the particular situations experienced by a dysfunctional family .
This family is characterized by having a funeral company, which will create the most peculiar and tragic situations. A simple bet but one that wastes quality thanks to the depth of its characters and the amount of emotions that they uncover in those who see it.
Notably, Six Feet Under has one of the best series endings of all time .

8. Oz (1997 – 2003)
This series largely takes place in Emerald City. No, it is not a city, not even a territory; It is the fourth level of a maximum security prison called the Oswald State Correctional Facility.
The series is not only a shocking story about the goings-on that occur inside the prison (with all its harsh truth), but it is also a criticism of the United States prison system, since, far from reforming the inmates, it ends up transforming them. into real monsters.
Other issues they touch on are the dilemmas between mercy and punishment, as well as the morality of the death penalty. Something that few series have tried and less getting to become one of the best series of all time.

Discovering Rome from the time of the Republic until it became an Empire is quite an adventure thanks to this series.

To get an idea, it was possible to have more than 350 people performing the same scene at the same time in surfaces of 20,000 square meters .

5. True Detective (2014 –

True Detective has yet to prove his worth. It has a second season that was not up to the first , but that, without a doubt, is one of the series that has created the most hype when the first chapters appeared.
Such was the phenomenon after the first season, that the same directors of the series warned that it was impossible to meet the expectations of the fans in the second, and even created the term “True Detective effect” .
This concept spread by fans refers to what happens when a first season is so tremendously good that it makes it impossible for the second to match it or even come close.

4. Blood Brothers (2001 – Miniseries)

A perfect series for a large number of people, which has also accompanied an entire generation.

2. The Wire: Under Listening (2002 – 2008)

Almost certainly the densest series on this list .
A police plot that stands out for an elaborate and intricate plot where two worlds are shown that constantly collide with each other: that of urban gangs and the bodies of the law.
It was especially acclaimed for showing in a very sincere and faithful way the reality that police officers live and the processes that they must follow to arrest a suspect.
Not suitable for all tastes, since it can be somewhat complex and slow on some occasions, but it is always loaded with high doses of reflection. A sample that quality can only be savored little by little .

1. The Sopranos (1999 – 2007)
