5 AMC Shows That Are Better Than All Other Television Combined

Wednesday, November 23 by Winston Carter

These 5 AMC shows are, simply put, five of the best hours of television on any network on any night.  From '60s ad execs to southern zombie killers, these shows bring a new level of drama and production value to waht was once thought of as inferior cable television.

The Killing

A simple murder investigation quickly becomes not so simple in AMC’s critically loved “The Killing.” This murder investigation surrounding a young girls horrific murder plays out like a slow burn that is always building. But in taking its time “The Killing” truly pays off to every audience member.

Mad Men

Quite possibly the best show to ever be on television, AMC’s “Mad Men” forged the way for all other AMC shows.  This subtle, nuanced look at American life in the '60s has not only made stars of much of its cast, it has also spawned two copy-cat shows from major networks in “Pan Am” and “The Playboy Club.”  Proving that major networks can steal from American shows just as easily as they can copy the best from Europe.
