  HBO may gotten its start in movies and sports broadcasts, but the cable giant has now aired more than 100 series and 20 miniseries in its 42-year history. And looking at that lineup of shows, it's not anoverstatement to say the channel helped usher in the current golden age of television. We took a look at four decades of HBO shows (not miniseries) and picked our favorite 20.

  HBO最初可能定位于电影放映和体育赛事播报,但现在这个拥有42年历史的有线电视巨头已经播出了超过100部美剧和20部迷你剧。看看HBO的节目表,毫不夸张地说,该频道开创了当今的电视黄金时代。我们浏览了HBO四十年里播放的所有节目(不包括迷你剧),并挑选了以下20部最好看的美剧。

  20. Boardwalk Empire

  《大西洋帝国》

外媒评选HBO史上最好看的20部美剧(双语)

  It's this wide-ranging spotlight, drifting from the highest levels of political office down to lowlybootleggers and prostitutes, that makes the show something special, offering up morality plays that hold the lives of millions at stake, while putting an actual face on those being affected.

  无死角的聚光灯从最顶层的政客办公室打到最底层的走私贩和妓女,成就了这部独一无二的道德伦理大戏,几百万人命悬一线,而事件所涉人物的真实面孔令人唏嘘。

  19. Oz

  《监狱风云》

外媒评选HBO史上最好看的20部美剧(双语)

  Certainly a "water cooler show" if there ever was one, Oz made waves with its violence and sexual content early on and its equally deep and disturbing storytelling once people got over the fact that it was set in a maximum security prison.

  如果世界上真的有“噱头剧”的话,《监狱风云》当然就是其中一部,它在早期掀起了一阵有关暴力和性欲内容的激烈讨论,而一旦观众忘记了故事背景其实是最安全的监狱,其故事情节也是既意蕴深刻又令人心烦。

  18. Sex and the City

  《欲望都市》

外媒评选HBO史上最好看的20部美剧(双语)

  It remains a phenomenon, and as cliché as it may sound, it opened the door for more complex narratives about women and sex, and it did so unapologetically thanks in large part to Kim Cattrall's role as Samantha Jones.

  它已经成为一种文化现象,虽然听起来像老生常谈,但这部剧的确开了一个先河,让人们可以用更复杂的方式来描述女人和性,而这毫无疑问很大一部分得益于金·凯特罗尔(Kim Cattrall)扮演的萨曼莎·琼斯(Samantha Jones)一角。

  17. Mr. Show with Bob and David

  《鲍勃大卫二人秀》

外媒评选HBO史上最好看的20部美剧(双语)

  Before alternative comedy was a recognized thing, there was Mr. Show with Bob and David, a geniussketch comedy show that had a criminally short run on HBO from 1995 to 1998.

  在另类喜剧得名之前,就已经有《鲍勃大卫二人秀》了,可惜这部真正的小品喜剧只在1995年-1998年在HBO短暂上映过。

  16. Eastbound & Down

  《体育老师笑传》

外媒评选HBO史上最好看的20部美剧(双语)

  It's one of the few comedies I can think of where I was often afraid of what was about to happen, like I was watching a horror film or thriller.

  这是少数几部让我常常担心剧中情形会真实发生的喜剧之一,就像看恐怖电影或读惊悚小说那样。
