    "Slasher" should definitely be on this list, especially after its excellent season 2.

    Supernatural deserved top 3. The walking dead deserved lower on the list because it's about the survivers not the walkers. The walkers are merely extras.

    American horror story is the best! It should have been #1 & I can't believe Angel is on this list & not Buffy the vampire slayer! Buffy was such an awesome show!

    Hannibal began in 1986 with Michael Mann's "Manhunter"! Where's "Erie, Indiana"? While the original "Twilight Zone" was excellent, "The Walking Dead" should be #1!

    You put Supernatural higher than Angel. Let's never mind that for a minute. You put Angel on this list over Buffy and didn't even give that latter an honorable mention. What part of that sounds right to you?!

    This list is so outdated. There are lots of newer shows which deserve to be part of the list.

    You need a new list. Stranger Things should not be ignored.
