Game of Thrones is and will always be one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and it keeps proving that time over time. Last year, Game of Thrones was voted as the greatest TV show of the 21st century by a poll conducted by Digital Spy. Recently, another such poll was held by BBC, and Thrones managed to secure a decent position in the ranking.

BBC Culture tweeted the list with the text, “These are the 100 greatest TV series of the 21st Century, as voted for by 206 critics from 43 countries. #TVOfTheCentury.” Game of Thrones ranked 5th on the list. The Wire was at the top of the list.

In total, 460 different series were voted for by 206 TV experts – critics, journalists, academics, and industry figures – who came from 43 countries, from Albania to Uruguay. Of these voters, 100 were women, 104 were men, and two were non-binary. Each voter listed their 10 favorite TV series of the 21st Century, which we scored and ranked to produce the top 100 listed below.

The annual poll by BBC Culture is conducted by film critics and industry experts from around the globe, who pick the best titles in a particular category. Though previous years saw listicles like greatest films directed by women and best non-English language movies, the curators decided to turn the spotlight on TV shows in 2021. This, keeping in view the role played by the small screen in the last two years during the coronavirus pandemic.
