Not counting cartoons, I'd say Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies.

Penny Dreadful, hands down.
Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and now Haunting of Hill House if Netflix counts.  ~R.

Maybe I have too short an attention span but here are very few shows I'll like all the way through.  The ones I recall have episodes or seasons I dislike.

Babylon 5 - last season is a miss.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Once More with Feeling and Hush were two of the best hours I've ever seen on tv.
Viscious - most of it was great.
Being Human - (british version only) the first season was great.
Doctor Who - so very uneven over the years.

Probably The Sopranos. I haven't re-watched it in a while so I'm not sure if it holds up, but I remember being amazed with what they were getting away with, and how complex everything about the show was, especially when compared with every other drama that was airing at that time.

From the "modern" era, I will also go with Penny Dreadful, still distraught that it ended so abruptly.

From the "classic" era, I will go with The Avengers, which has nothing to do with the current superhero franchise (grumble).  This trippy 1960s British detective show was at its best when Patrick Macnee was paired with Honor Blackman and then, the incomparable Dame Diana Rigg, who I will surely be in the next life:

I even liked Tara King.  I wish that most of the episodes of the first series hadn't been destroyed.

It was a near-impossible task for Linda Thorson "Tara" to fill the stilettos of Rigg, perhaps a factor as to why Thorson's first season was also the original show's last.

As for Season One, to my knowledge, only 3 complete and one partial episode have been recovered, as the videotape "masters" of that era were reused (feel free to weep).  Of the surviving episodes, Tunnel of Fear was, quite unexpectedly, found in 2016, and I'll have to see if a copy has made its way onto the net.

Pardon my poor dollar conversion skills, but am I to understand that the free market is charging +/- $25US for this single, one-hour, no-longer-lost Avengers episode?!?

And to keep the thread on-topic...

Favorite Animated TV show (modern):  The genial Bob's Burgers (honorables to Bojack, Squidbilllies, Mr. Pickles, Family Guy, American Dad, etc., etc.)

Favorite Animated TV show (classic): Tie -- very early Japanimation Prince Planet, and Star Trek: the Animated Series.
