BBC 100 Greatest Series: Surprisingly ‘YOU’ & ‘SUITS’ Are Not Included

BBC has released the list of ‘100 greatest TV series of the 21st Century,’ and to everyone’s shock, it didn’t include two of the best shows of the 21st Century.

It has some of the popular names, and we certainly do not argue that. However, the SUITS series and YOU became the global hit after the release on streaming giant Netflix. Still, all these film critics and industry experts decided not to include these two gems in the list of 100 greatest series.

It’s good to see that shows like Fleabag, The Crown, Narcos, Stranger Things, Chernobyl made it to the list. However, pretty underrated shows such as Patrick Melrose, A Suitable Boy, etc were not even looked at.

Spanish series La Casa De Papel popular as Money Heist got 43rd position. And the longest-running American show Grey’s Anatomy is also on the list.

Interestingly, HBO Series ‘The Wire’ topped the chart followed by Jon Hamm’s Mad Men. Breaking Bad moved to third position. Even Game Of Thrones moved to fifth position after Fleabag. The result was accumulated using the votes of 206 critics from 43 countries.
