It's that time of decade again when we argue over lists drawn up that includes this but not that.

I agree with it in every detail.

widenation - 16 Sep 2019 19:52:07 (#2 of 68)

It's better than the other two best 100 lists.

moto748 - 16 Sep 2019 19:54:46 (#3 of 68)

Overrated, although without merit:

Spaced

The West Wing

Line of Duty

Fleabag

thisonehasalittlehat - 16 Sep 2019 19:54:46 (#4 of 68)

Although the wire should be no 1.

And the rest of the list should scrapped.

moto748 - 16 Sep 2019 19:59:29 (#5 of 68)

Underrated:

Justified

Skins





Missing:

Broadchurch

Unforgiven



(but of course they don't count; they were on ITV)

YorenInTheNorth - 16 Sep 2019 20:00:07 (#6 of 68)

Glad Darkplace made the list.

widenation - 16 Sep 2019 20:00:32 (#7 of 68)

Peaky Blinders isn't on it (never seen it myself).

YorenInTheNorth - 16 Sep 2019 20:02:48 (#8 of 68)

Or Chernobyl.

moto748 - 16 Sep 2019 20:14:26 (#9 of 68)

True. Haven't watched either, but both are well-regarded.

whitbreadtrophy - 16 Sep 2019 20:37:52 (#10 of 68)

Peppa Pig should have made it onto the list.

widenation - 16 Sep 2019 20:42:17 (#11 of 68)

No cartoons on it, that I noticed.

Towlie - 16 Sep 2019 20:45:02 (#12 of 68)

Apart from South Park.

widenation - 16 Sep 2019 20:46:22 (#13 of 68)

Glad to hear it - think of it as more 90s.

StakludKar - 16 Sep 2019 20:50:22 (#14 of 68)

It's been the documentary / factual ones I remember but none seem to be on here:

24 hours in A&E

one born every minute

Dayraven - 16 Sep 2019 20:56:46 (#15 of 68)

think of it as more 90s.

They seem to have included shows that can claim best-show status based on their post-2000 output, not just ones that started after then.

darkhorse - 16 Sep 2019 20:58:55 (#16 of 68)

Although I enjoyed a bit of South Park in the 90s, and even went to the pictures to see the film, the idea of following it for 20 years doesn't appeal to me much

DesEsseintes - 16 Sep 2019 21:02:25 (#17 of 68)

The last thing I watched on TV was The Rotters Club I think.

DesEsseintes - 16 Sep 2019 21:03:11 (#18 of 68)

Before that, Twin Peaks.

moto748 - 16 Sep 2019 21:08:56 (#19 of 68)

TRC wasn't all that, I thought.

darkhorse - 16 Sep 2019 21:13:23 (#20 of 68)

Perhaps that's why he stopped watching TV.
