Great to be reminded of Ripping Yarns. Did Moddie vote for it too? It was a great show. Golden Gordon and Eric Olthwaite are two of the funniest episodes of TV ever.

I loved watching it with my son when he was younger. Some other shows too like Adventure Time. I may well have included in my list if I'd remembered it.

I thought about this but decided it was too inconsistent. The good episodes were very good though, almost worth including for Five Go Mad In Dorset alone

I decided that Strike was enough of a standalone that I could vote for it.

Yeah, 'Adventure Time' was fun, 'Regular Show' too.

Yes The Regular Show is good too. I thought of that earlier but couldn't for the life of me remember the name of the show.

So, did Hart to Hart win this thing or not?
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
