9- Code Monkeys: Although the show only ran for two seasons, the style of animation, crude humor and loveable characters make it a must see.
8-Heroes: A huge hit for NBC, the show tailed off creatively after the third season. Everything before that however was excellent TV. Overall, most of the first three seasons is some of the best television writing of the last decade.
