The 50 coolest TV shows ever

Some would have it that TV is no more than a glorified idiot box sent to sanitise and dupe the masses. Those people are either academic cultural theorists or have obviously watched nothing more than Loose Women. Or both.

Think differently? Let us know below. We know you will anyway…
