We may be in a Golden Age of television, but it wasn't always so shiny. Back in 2008, things were rough. The Writers Guild of America's strike had just ended, leading to a slough of bad series, reruns and reality TV. There were some decent shows, but it really wasn't until HBO debuted Game of Thrones that the tide began to turn. Now, in celebration of a decade consisting of some of the best TV we've ever seen, here are our greatest shows of the past 10 years.
The first season of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale adapted the classic, haunting Margaret Atwood novel in its entirety - leaving the slate clean for the show to move beyond the novel into a deeper look at the story's dystopian world. That will include something only barely referenced in the original novel: The lands beyond Gilead still occupied by society's remnants.

The bottom five took a little less time to assemble, but still, this wasn't easy either. Here are the shows we loved and loathed most this year

Plus, Konami wants to bring another classic video game to the big screen, and Avengers 4 set pictures. Hooray for spoilers!
