Yeah Malcolm in the Middles and The Office US should be much higher, and Lost should be bottom.

think you’d get a really different result if you had showed everyone a complete list and asked them to vote for each at the same time

Season Four is probably the pinnacle of TV as a whole IMO. As powerful and heartbreaking as any equivalent documentary could possibly be.

So, so brilliant. If this doesn’t top the list then the list is wrong.

I agree with this

Season 4 is my least favourite, 2 is my favourite.

Even including five!?

It was brilliant, no desire to ever watch it again.

i also think that with any truly great tv it stands up incredibly well to rewatches, on first watch i was frustrated with a lot of the second series and just wanted them to get back to what i felt was the “main” story but now it’s actually one of my favourites

Only watched it for the first time around this time last year, just kept putting it off but can easily see a rewatch happening soon.

agree with that

probably 2>1>3>5>4
