AMC is a very popular cable and satellite TV channel that originally took its name from "American Movie Classics." In recent years the station has revamped its programming, turning to more modern era movies, TV shows and miniseries. It originally launched in 1984 but began taking the major shift to reach more viewers over the past decade. Its original series have played a huge role in that shift. What are the best AMC original shows?
