Sage - Nothing like a cult member. Amusing, but spoilt by it's over exaggeration of comments regarding TV shows.

Mrs Brown's boys above TNG? Rack off, bloody sacrilege. TNG is awesome, whoever else voted for it has good taste.

HIGNFY - deserves great credit for being a top programme for over 20 years. I doubt that anyone would have it in their top five but everyone should have it in their Top 100.

 

Green Wing - a bit of a cult show. Amusing but spoilt by the show's lovers over exagerating its greatness (a bit like Mrs Brown's Boys in that respect).

 

Aye Green Wing was excellent, but was spoiled a lot by the unnecessary love stuff with Greig and Rhind-Tutt's characters. Mark Heap and Michelle Gomez though were sensational :D

 

HIGNFY is fine and funny, Merton is a comic genius, though I can't stand Hislop, nor Jack Whitehall or Jo Brand when they are on.

Agree, it probably would have made a top thirty of forty for me, but the tight structure of a top twenty it just misses out on my list.

new_zps3276bfb5.png 74. Planet Earth (27 points)

 

Movement: NEW ENTRY | Lists: 2 | Number 1's: 0

 

Original Run: 2006 | Series: 1 | Episodes: 11 | Country of Origin: United Kingdom, United States, Japan, Canada

 

Planet Earth is a 2006 series produced by the BBC Natural History Unit. Five years in the making, it was the most expensive nature documentary series ever commissioned by the BBC, and also the first to be filmed in high definition. The series was co-produced by the Discovery Channel and NHK in association with the CBC, and was described by its makers as "the definitive look at the diversity of our planet".

 

Planet Earth was first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC One in March 2006, and premiered one year later in the USA on the Discovery Channel. By June 2007, it had been shown in 130 countries worldwide. The original BBC version was narrated by David Attenborough and produced by Alastair Fothergill. For Discovery, the executive producer was Maureen Lemire, with Sigourney Weaver's voiceover replacing Attenborough.

 

The series comprises eleven episodes, each of which features a global overview of a different biome or habitat on Earth. At the end of each fifty-minute episode, a ten-minute featurette takes a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of filming the series.

 

With a budget of £16 million, Planet Earth is the most expensive documentary series the BBC has ever made. The corporation signed a co-financing deal with the Discovery Channel and NHK (Japan's state broadcaster), its production partners on The Blue Planet, to spread the cost of the ambitious project. Under the terms of the deal, Discovery retained the US rights and NHK the Japanese rights, while BBC Worldwide retained the rights for the rest of the world. Together, the Discovery and NHK financing amounted to 60–70% of the cost of the series, which paid for the upgrade to the high-definition format. BBC Worldwide also funded the additional £7.4 million budget of Earth, the feature film.

down_zps0c8e0320.png 73. The Day Today (28 points)

 

Movement: Down 44 | Lists: 2 | Number 1's: 0

 

Original Run: 1994 | Series: 1 | Episodes: 6 | Country of Origin: United Kingdom

 

The Day Today is a surreal British parody of television current affairs programmes, broadcast in 1994, and created by the comedians Armando Iannucci and Chris Morris. It is an adaptation of the radio programme On the Hour, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 between 1991 and 1992. The principal cast of On the Hour was retained for The Day Today.

 

The Day Today is composed of six half-hour episodes and a selection of shorter, five-minute slots recorded as promotion trailers for the longer segments. The six half-hour episodes were originally broadcast from 19 January to 23 February 1994 on BBC2. The Day Today has won many awards, including Morris winning the 1994 British Comedy Award for Best Newcomer.

down_zps0c8e0320.png 72. The Office USA (28 points)

 

Movement: Down 12 | Lists: 3 | Number 1's: 0

 

Original Run: 2005-2013 | Series: 9 | Episodes: 201 | Country of Origin: United States

 

The Office is an American television comedy series that originally aired on National Broadcasting Company (NBC) from March 24, 2005 to May 16, 2013. It is an adaptation of the BBC series of the same name. The Office was adapted for American audiences by Greg Daniels, a veteran writer for Saturday Night Live, King of the Hill, and The Simpsons.

 

The series depicts the everyday lives of office employees in the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. To simulate the look of an actual documentary, it is filmed in a single-camera setup, without a studio audience or a laugh track. The show debuted on NBC as a mid-season replacement and ran for nine seasons, and 201 episodes. The Office features Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B. J. Novak and Ed Helms among the main cast. Series star Carell, who portrayed Michael Scott, left the series near the end of the seventh season.

 

The first five seasons of The Office received critical acclaim, were included on several top TV series lists, and won several awards including four Primetime Emmy Awards, one of which was for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2006. The series initially debuted to low ratings, but during its second season it became the highest-rated scripted series on NBC and was eventually chosen to follow Super Bowl XLIII.

Wow, I thought that The Day Today would be higher, it was my number 5. If you've never seen it, you should. It's amazing.

 

The US Office was my number 10 too, it's largely brilliant.

If we are talking about good programmes (as opposed to favourite) then Frozen Planet should be right up there. Well done to those who voted for it.

 

Todays The Day has a lot to merit it. It was ground breaking. It was controversial and tribal in that you were either IN and understood it or OUT if you didn't. It also addressed some serious issues in a way that got to people.

 

Didn't watch The Office USA but I cannot recall any British series that the Americans improved upon.

Generally quality nature programmes suffer in these surveys because often they merge into each other sometimes in ones mind. I enjoyed one about tigers last year and another about Madagascar but I struggle to recall the titles of the programme. That never happens with US series.

 

Comedies also suffer compared to drama series.

My problem with QI is not the show itself but the fact that the BBC whore it out far too much. Repeats are on every Friday/Saturday I think and it just becomes annoying.

I have never heard of "Scenes from a Marriage" but it must have something to appear on two lists despite being 40 years old & only had 6 episodes.

 

QI is a quality show. It may have got a bit samey over the last year or so but it is still worth watching. Personally, I prefer HIGNFY but wouldn't have either in my Top 20 list but both would have made my Top 100.

Scenes from a Marriage is excellent. I decided to watch it after reading someone compare an episode of The Sopranos ("Whitecaps", the season 4 finale, if anyone's wondering) to it.

 

The main reason it works so well is due to fantastic performances from Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson (Ullmann especially). As the couple under our scurinty, they're both remarkable and convincing as a wife and husband falling in and out of love. The time span gives the characters enough time to develop, and because of the unique visual style, and the reality of Bergman's script, it's easy to accept these characters and connect with them through their habitual emotional turmoil.

Anyway, it is excellent. And timeless. Is the acting really "the main reason it works so well" though? Is that ever the most notable aspect of a good film or series? But I agree about the character development, Bergman's great at illustrating the complexity of human interaction, married life and family psychology, with the brutally honest dialogue pretty much forcing you to empathise with the couple. A lot of which must have been lost in the shorter theatrical release.

If you did vote for it, that makes three of us. So James clearly cocked this up.

Right, I can see I've missed it on Satch's list. I'm assuming and hoping I've only missed that one show and nothing else, especially since his number one is in there. However, I'm going to have to do a recount to be sure.
