Cheers Penk, great work.

By the way, I share 19 out of 30 with you lot, and the only show from my top 10 not to make the cut was this:

I'm glad The Handmaid's Tale made the 100.

Ripping Yarns should have placed somewhere in a poll voted for by big Python/Fawlty fans!

the ones from my list that didn't make the cut:

Life On Earth
Threads
Roots
The Living Planet
Columbo
Tiswas
Tales of the Unexpected
Minder

but there were some on the list that I should have voted for instead of some of the above if I'd remembered them including The Twilight Zone and Cosmos.....why did I not remember those?

Reading now that Paul Junger Witt, producer of Soap/ Benson, The Golden Girls, the Partridge Family and movies like Dead Poets Society and Three Kings passed away.

Like Steven Bochco, most influential in my TV-diet.

I love it - I always contend it's better than The Simpsons. I think the funniest one I saw was the one where David Blaine takes on Jesus and all the crowd are slagging off Jesus because his miracles aren't as impressive as Blaine's.

:lol:

The problem is the same as with The Simpsons - there's now just so much of it. I'll watch the odd episode if it's on TV but this business of watching entire seasons and judging them against one another I've never really been into.

When it’s good it’s great and unlike most shows who have been running that long it’s still funny.

There’s a lot of episodes I haven’t seen too as I came to it late

Watch that J-Lo one! it's proper genius!

I read that some people were singing 'The Taco Song' to her as she was walking by on set somewhere, and she was furious. I love this so much I could burst.

I've finally got round to seeing all six seasons of Breaking Bad. It deserves all the praise and would've got in my top ten.
