Variety named the best TV series of all time

Experts from the prestigious American weekly Variety have jointly identified the top 100 best series and film projects in history. The list reflects evolutions and revolutions in the industry over the decades, so it also includes series that were filmed more than 50 years ago.

10. Roots

The tenth position was taken by the miniseries Roots in 1977. The plot revolves around events during and after the era of slavery in the United States. The 8-episode project has won many awards.

"Even though it has been the basis for sequels and a remake, the original series had an impact like no other. More than 100 million Americans stayed home on January nights to learn the story of Kunta and his descendants," the weekly described Roots.

2. Mad Men

Between 2007 and 2015, viewers enjoyed a drama that took them back to the sixties of the last century when the main character had a very hard time. The show touches on such serious topics as infidelity, feminism, racism, anti-Semitism, and sexual orientation, as well as a call to drink alcohol and have promiscuous, casual relationships.

1. I Love Lucy

The editorial board recognized the comedy, which first aired in 1951 and ran for six years, as the best series of all time.

"Lucille Ball was not just a performer. As a co-owner of Desilu Studios (with her husband Desi Arnaz), Ball wielded enormous power in the entertainment industry at a time when doors were not open to women. "Many shows have tried to replicate what I Love Lucy exalted, but there was a chemistry between Ball, Arnaz, and their writers that made television in its formative years one of a kind to this day," the editors explained their choice.
