O THE GODS. I'm not into police tv dramas, there are way too many of them but something must have interested me in this because I didn't miss an episode. Rough, harsh, extreme, all to the max, no holds barred. One of it's kind indeed. Dutch, put that cat down!

We had the idea first of making a comedy out of nerds and what a great one. Good characters and fantastic 30 minute plots. Such seriously great episodes that actually made me lol.

3. Ideal (2005–2011)

30 min | Comedy

Votes: 2,342

What a plot series. Nothing like this has been done before with such unusual, but loveable characters. I mean FIST?!?! Just totally captivating. It did get better as time went but then fizzled out at the last few. Duff created a genius, fantastical, dark, very dark comedy which can be related to everyday at times.

30 min | Comedy

The antics of the dysfunctional staff of Sutton branch of a mobile phone retailer.

Stars: Emma Fryer, Tom Bennett, Andrew Brooke, Javone Prince

Votes: 2,023

Again great comedic moments in this programme. And whereas most comedies lose their value over time, this had some better episodes as you got on. The episode with the muffins has me in stitches every time. Love it!

5. Columbo (1971–2003)

Votes: 24,387

You gotta love this guy. I don't watch many cop shows but my dad got me hooked on this and I think the way you see the crime then watch the detective work made me love it even more.

So disappointed that they cancelled it and for the reason. Thought this was different for all the best reasons and laugh out loud funny. The cars scenes were one of the greatest scenes of all times, could really relate to it.

Votes: 1,075

I caught this late and watched by pure chance as it was a Saunders joint. The thing is, I can't relate to this programme in any way at all, but still couldn't take my eyes off it and watched to the very end wanting more. Such an endearing look at rural liviing with delightful characters with a great script. Absolutely different and wonderful.
