Is The Twilight Zone worth watching?

Blending together horror, science-fiction, drama and comedy, The Twilight Zone single handily helped to cultivate the anthology genre through a former which introduced several self-contained stories across its various seasons.

Due to the unpredictability of the series, you never knew what dangers awaited you in the black and white critical darling that is still regarded as one of the greatest horror series to ever air.

Is The Larry Sanders Show worth watching?

Before there was 30 Rock, there was The Larry Sanders Show which took viewers behind the scenes of a late-night talk show and the hijinks that unfold when the cameras aren’t rolling. The late Garry Shandling was the heart of the show which offered him the platform to let his comedic talents shine in his most iconic role.

Is 24 worth watching?

When 24 premiered, it seemed like a bizarre idea: a series taking place in real-time, where every episode was an hour. It was in actuality a brilliant concept that spawned plenty of imitators who wanted to take the show’s set-up and split-screen visual style.

But no series could touch what 24 was able to do (not even its own reboot), because it wasn’t just technically innovative. It featured a tightly woven universe created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, and the best performance of Kiefer Sutherland’s already impressive career. Jack Bauer became the fictional hero for our generation, and 24 became the benchmark for thrilling TV.

Is ER worth watching?

Before there was Seattle Grace, there was County General Hospital – a prominent Chicago hospital with one of the busiest emergency rooms around. ER helped to make medical dramas must-see TV by blending personal dilemmas with the heartbreaking split-second decisions the doctors often face while treating their patients.

In addition to developing one of the most loyal and passionate fanbases around, the series helped to launch the careers of several of Hollywood’s A-List including the likes of George Clooney and Juliana Margulies.

Is South Park worth watching?

From the outside, this comedy may just look like a raunchy, over-the-top adult cartoon. However, it’s so much than that. While The Simpsons may have invented the adult cartoon, South Park revolutionized it.

It’s not only full of inappropriate jokes like Family Guy, but a lot of their episodes have a deeper meaning whether that be political, societal, etc. It may not be obvious to the outside world, but South Park may be the smartest comedy on television.
