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.

The only ones I don't think I've seen on here yet are Beck and Solsidan (Swedish series), Miss Marple (Joan Hickson series), Poirot (conservative delight), Unsolved Mysteries (I'd record every episode), Sunset Beach (my favourite trash series) and Ray Cokes Most Wanted (I'd maybe put Toby Amies' Alternative Nation in there as well).

The others for me are the usual suspects



Oh and In Treatment. That was an excellent show, one of my favourites. Really careful, interesting cast selection and focus on character development.

I've only just started watching Game of Thrones (just reaching the end of season 1) and I'm hooked. It definitely would have made my list if I'd watched it sooner.
