Game of Thrones is the 3rd best TV show ever according to a recent American survey




There have been a lot of amazing TV shows ever since the dawn of technology brought the window to the world within the four walls of a room, but only a few stand out as truly iconic. These comparisons have become even more prevalent ever since HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones hit the TV screens, setting a benchmark for all other programs out there. Every now and then we see a list being released, featuring the best TV shows of all time, and we can be sure to find Game of Thrones sitting high up on that list. Last year, the show secured the fifth position in BBC’s list of the greatest TV shows ever filmed. This time, we see Game of Thrones appearing once again in an American survey of the most amazing TV shows.
