8. The O.C.

The show that made Josh Schwartz makes the list for the first season alone, which is a near perfect mix of escapism and wish fulfillment.

There hasn't been much that has done melodrama or hyperbolic angst better than The O.C., not to mention the shows massive influence on an entire generation of youth culture in everything from music, to lexicon, to fashion.

And the near perfect ending to the first season still makes me fucking weep.
