 Top 100 TV series of the 21st Century

In a poll conducted by the BBC, full top 100 list: www.bbc.com/culture/article/20211015-the-100-greatest-tv-series-of-the-21st-century

Presumably not having the Sopranos in because the first series was in 1999 (thus ignoring the other 5 that followed in the 21st Century) seems a bit off.

"In total, 460 different series were voted for by 206 TV experts – critics, journalists, academics and industry figures – who came from 43 countries, from Albania to Uruguay. Of these voters, 100 were women, 104 were men, and two were non-binary. Each voter listed their 10 favourite TV series of the 21st Century, which we scored and ranked to produce the top 100 listed below."

1 The Wire (2002-2008)
2 Mad Men (2007-2015)

Surprised to see Fleabag so high up -- I just couldn't get into that one at all.

Nice seeing Schitt's Creek make the list though.

No way that X-Files is going to be classed as a 21st Century show unless they judge the 'special event' series as separate like with Twin Peaks. But I don't think that'd be troubling the top 100 anyway if so.

I have to start Succession. I'm happy to see Fleabag in there too. It's superb.
