    Go on, I'll own up to voting for Buffy and True Blood.
    And why wasn't Angel a choice - disgrace not to be there.
    Not owning up for Deadwood even it was me.

    I watched the third season of Boardwalk Empire this week. I thought it was superb and cannot believe I did not include it in the poll. Folk go on about the red wedding thing in Game of Thrones, Nucky deals with that sort of **** every day of the week;)

    If you haven't watched this show give it a go Buscemi and co are fantastic.

    Man, I'd forgot about Boardwalk Empire. Been looking for a decent series to watch. I watched the first couple of episodes when it started, missed a few then never caught up.
    My mate just suggested I watch Numb3rs, couple of episodes in and I'm finding it a little tedious, might give the rest a miss.

    Glad to see Boys from the Black Stuff in your list but you missed out the holy trinity of dramas:
    Lovejoy
    Minder
    Auf Wiedersehen Pet

    Others you could have included:
    This Life
    Das Boot

    And as you've included a cop show:
    Morse
    Midsummer Murders

    What is Game of Thrones about?

    I've always assumed it was a costume drama aimed at women.

    I've always wondered that myself.

    Except I thought it was for dungeons and dragons fanatics.

    Nope. It's about the struggles between various factions to win the throne of this fictional kingdom. It's actually very political. It's almost like a medieval soap opera, but with very interesting characters. The characterisation is superb actually and it's probably key to the success of the show. Nothing really to do with Dungeons and dragons either MD. It's actually a very decent show and well worth a watch. I was quite surprised at it as I really didn't fancy it at all.

    With how much blood and guts is shown in Game of Thrones, it certainly isn't a girly show lol.

    You have actually given me the idea for a new one. In the meantime Yosser is battling it out with the wee midget from game of thrones at the top of the poll.
