Six Feet Under had the best finale. Just rewatched the final scene again, wonderful.

Damn, steep drop for Python along with the steep drops for the Blackadders. I'm assuming most of that is just the change in the make-up of voters - wasn't here for the last poll myself so don't know what that group was like. Certainly seems more America-centric now though.

As I said before, British comedy isn't doing well. Young Ones, Blackadders, Mr. Bean...... and now the unforgivably huge drop for Monty Python. I can't take this list serious anymore. :folded:

Parks and Recreation ending higher on the list than The Office.

Quite strange tbf.

Im not one to tell People what to watch and what not but for once i want to make an exception and say People on here really should check out 'This is England' it follows up on the movie and it doesnt drop in quality at all.

I only voted for Python and Fawlty Towers I think; I do like the rest of those you mention, just haven't seen enough and/or haven't seen any of it since the 90s (or even 80s in some cases). Oh I also voted for Ripping Yarns but that's significantly more obscure I think.

My impression is that there are more people whose TV choices stem from nostalgia than people who watch or remember film that way; certainly the preponderance of newer shows here and a demographic that reflects that strikes me as not coincidental. And it's true for me, lots of stuff from the 70s-80s on my list. I don't consciously watch TV in the same way or for the same reasons I watch movies - if there are tv "equivalents" of Lav Diaz and Jacques Rivette, I'm not aware of them and not looking for them. So I'd say in my own case that TV is much more a "comfort food" for me than film and it's certainly reflected in my list. And I don't believe I'm the only one though some may not be as conscious of it.

Yay, this is probably the best thing i discovered on Netflix. I was never a fan of Aziz Ansari but this is way beyond anything in his career. Sometimes silly, but some episodes, especially from season 2, are honestly comparable to the masterpieces of cinema (on it's own, not just because he does a huge tribute to The Bicycle Thieves), and it hit me hard so many times, going into the scenes from relationships or attempts to create one, that every decent guy has experienced or can relate to, but you hardly ever see them in the mainstream.

Massive changes in the rankings (some titles dropping out from #3 and #5 to #30ish rankings, others climbing like 300 spots into the Top 50). You guys need a more stable voter base. :folded:
