Best of the 2010s: Which Drama Series Had You Hooked? (POLL)
It’s almost the end of 2019 and the decade, so we’re taking a look back at television in the 2010s with some of the best moments, pairings, surprises, and more.
The 2010s were filled with so many dramas, it’s hard to keep track of all of them. But some stood out more than others, whether due to characters, storylines, fan response, or even just the anticipation to see how it all ended.
Take a look at the standout dramas from the decade and then vote in the poll below. (Note: All of the below series premiered in 2010 and after.)
Game of Thrones
Some fans may not have liked how it ended, but viewers tuned in every week for eight seasons, eager to find out who would sit on the Iron Throne and what would come of the battle with the Night King.
The historical drama is about love, adventure, and time travel and filled with steamy moments — what more could a fan ask for? Viewers keep tuning in to watch Claire and Jamie’s relationship, as they’re separated and reunite — and to see what happens with their daughter, Brianna.
Set during the Cold War, the spy drama followed two Soviet KGB officers posing as an American married couple raising their children in a suburb of D.C. — right next to an FBI agent working in counterintelligence.

Bored MI5 officer Eve becomes obsessed with hunting down assassin Villanelle in one of the best cat-and-mouse games on television in this spy thriller. And let’s just say these women like to stab each other.
