BCB Top 100 TV Shows - And the winner is...

Postby PENK » 20 Mar 2018, 12:27

So, thanks to those of you who voted. Here, without further ado, are the results of BCB'S TOP 100 TV SHOWS EVER.
The shows are ranked first by the number of votes received, then by the total number of points.
Each show is accompanied by a clip found more or less randomly: some are trailers, others "best-of" scenes that came up when I did a youtube search.

Re: BCB Top 100 TV Shows - Results!

I don't really watch much TV here so I've only really seen two shows here, and not completely either. I used to like 24 back when they were originally airing seasons 1 through 3, but I recall not enjoying season 4 at all and eventually giving up somewhere in season 5. I cannot say whether my opinions hold up as I haven't really seen the show since but I've gotten the increasing sensation that 24 slowly shifted from a decent action thriller to some of the most nauseatingly jingoistic stuff on TV when it was on air. Can't say I have any desire of revisiting it. Archer is quite fine from the few episodes and clips I've seen, but haven't investigated much beyond that. I will get to it some day though.
