Number 18 Fringe 2008 -2013
The closest thing to X-Files that the TV world has given us. With an interesting mythology and bizarre cases this sci-fi series from J.J. Abrams is basically a modern day X-files as we follow the adventures of the Fringe unit of the FBI. Where it differs from X-Files is that there is an alternate parallel universe that is at the heart of this drama that drives the mythology. At times the show was as good as X-Files and at others the main story line or mystery of the week failed to meet the that level. The series like LOST seemed to drift off focus for awhile before finding its stride again. I still haven't seen the final 13 episodes (waiting for the final season on Netflix) once I have I'll see if that changes where this cool series falls on the list, but for now it comes in for me at number 18.
