    such a shame it took 8 posts before someone posted a decent list. I pretty much agree with your list but I've been watching game of thrones and I would add it to that list just not sure where.
    I've heard about that, how is it? At first it looked like it wouldn't really appeal to me but I've been hearing such incredible reviews I think Ill have to check it out?

    Is Game of Thrones just all fighting and what is it really about?because I was interested in it but the show does seem to lack in monsters from what I've seen Is there any creatures in the show?

    I really liked it. Admittedly i didn't see much past season two. but i still thought it was pretty damn good.

    But for me, nothing beats Fringe.

    Haven't gotten to see Fringe unfortunately, was on my to do list.

    I'd also put the first three seasons of Lost up there, although it certainly wouldn't make it on the "all time"' list

    3: Game of Thrones - although I have no idea how they're going to do book 4, it's so boring and full of pointless characters.

    I've regrettably lost Fringe. :ashamed:

    Got a shift job, so i'd record them, then my tv box would miss some and i never got round to finding them . . . .

    But seriously WATCH IT. it's chuffing brilliant.

    Love Mitchell and Webb (Look and Sound are hilarious) but peep show is too cringe.

    And I'm not sure about Homeland, it's too slow and some of it is pure dull
