There is nothing like HBO. Home Box Office aka HBO is the long time leader of TV entertainment. Every Sunday for years, millions of people have been entertained by the high quality series HBO offers that you can watch in the comfort of your own home.

Every year, HBO goes somewhere no other television station is willing to go and every year they take home the most Emmy awards for all of their outstanding television series as a prize.

Features like HBO Go and HBO On Demand allow viewers to literally watch their favorite HBO programs at any time of the day, no matter where they are.

Some HBO series have been monumental in bringing TV entertainment to the future and they always lead by example. People who watch HBO constantly find themselves glued to their couch for hours at a time trying to catch up with their favorite shows just because they are that entertaining and exhilarating.

In honor of HBO and all of the excellent TV series they have released over the years that keep us looking forward to Sunday night we have made a slideshow of The Top 12 HBO Series Of All Time:

12. Girls

Lena Dunham’s breakout show about a few young ladies living in Brooklyn has taken the world by storm. What makes it great is the fact that anyone could watch the show and be like “Wow, I totally know that girl.”

11. How To Make It In America

This show has only had two seasons, but they have both been excellent. “How To Make It” proves that the American dream is still alive and gives an in-depth look at the true hustle that goes on in the streets of the concrete jungle.

10. True Blood

At the height of the vampire craze that hit the United States, HBO released “True Blood,” the best vampire show of all time. The show follows not-so-innocent Sookie Stackhouse and a bunch of her family and friends through their magical journeys in Bon Temps, Louisiana.

9. Da Ali G Show

Sacha Baron Cohen captivated audiences in “Da Ali G Show” for years. Whether he was playing Kazakhstani immigrant Borat, Austrian fashion sensation Bruno, or the original gangsta Ali G. he was keeping everybody watching crying from laughter.

8. Eastbound & Down

Kenny Powers was the ultimate baseball sensation and had an amazing career as a pitcher in the big leagues. This HBO show takes place AFTER Kenny is done with baseball and getting older. Over the past few years Kenny Powers and his twisted, f*cked up adventures have cemented him as one of the funniest characters in TV history.

7. The Wire

Set in Baltimore, this show centers around the city’s inner-city drug scene. The show depicts the lives of every part of the drug “food chain,” from junkies to dealers, and from cops to politicians. “The Wire” is known to be many people’s favorite shows for its mind-bending drama.

6. Sex And The City

Many people consider this show one of the reasons why HBO is as big as is. The show follows four beautiful female New Yorkers gossiping about their sex-lives (or lack thereof) and finding new ways to deal with being a woman in the 90s. There have already been two movies following the series finale.

5. Boardwalk Empire

Nobody thought there could ever be a gangster like Tony Soprano ever again. That was until Nucky Thompson came along. “Boardwalk Empire” is a thrilling drama set in 1920’s prohibition era Atlantic City. It chronicles the life and times of Nucky Thompson, the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City, who was equal parts politician and gangster.

4. Curb Your Enthusiasm

Created by “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David, “Curb” is arguably funnier than “Seinfeld” itself. The show follows Larry David in his every day life managing his common problems that everyone has had before but for some reason they are just so much more hilarious when they happen to him. Whether he’s losing a parking space or going to a Dodger’s game with a hooker, just so he can use the HOV lane, Larry David keeps the audience wanting more.

3. Game Of Thrones

The epic show based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series has captivated audiences since its premiere a few years ago. The medieval fantasy series’ 3rd season just started on March 31st and it is already breaking HBO records for the most watched show. Expect more sex, fire & blood in “GoT” for years to come.

2. Entourage

The quintessential show about life in Hollywood and just some group of regular friends making it big. Vinny Chase, E, Drama, Turtle & Ari Gold brought personality to TV that we still truly miss to this day. “Entourage” showed everybody why it’s amazing to be rich and famous. Expect to see a movie coming soon…

1. The Sopranos

Sure, some people think that “The Sopranos” series finale wasn’t nearly as good as it was hyped up to be, but it still left everyone saying “What the f*ck just happened”? The best show in HBO history told the story of New Jersey mafia boss Tony Soprano and his life of ups and downs. Whether someone was getting wacked, eating fine italian food or creating tension between the family, “The Sopranos” kept viewers coming back week after week for years.
