"House Of Cards" (the remake of the brilliant original) - oozes class and style, even if it's not for the action crowd.

"Death In Paradise" - an unlikely joy, but brightens up the winter gloom nicely, especially since Kris Marshall joined.

"Seinfeld" - knocks "Friends" out of the park, for me.

And finally:-

"Under The Dome" - utterly nuts!

The new House of Cards is pretty good.

No-where near the original though in terms of atmosphere and relatability though.

The original was one of the BBC's greatest ever dramas. Richardson was born to play that role, and it certainly resonated brilliantly in the post-Thatcher British political landscape.

"To Play The King" was also good, I thought, with Michael Kitchen's Prince Charles-like nemesis being surprisingly effective. Didn't think the final one quite lived up to the first two, though.

I'd put A Very British Coup in that category as well.

People are talking about if Corbyn became Labour leader, and subsequently PM, in light of "A Very British Coup"!

Great drama, great nerdy computer stuff, great 80s nostalgia (not day-glo pastel party rubbish, the real stuff) and great characters (men and women).

Ray Donovan
Humans
John Oliver
Mr. Robot
Vikings
Even an episode of New Who featuring David Tennant and Matt Smith performing 2 Doctors 1 Cup would still be better than the entire Colon Baker era
