by lyall carter

What a year of TV it's far!

From new ventures from massive franchises to documentary series on the most bizarre subjects - we've had it all. Sure, I haven't watched every new TV series that has come along (who has that kinda time?), there are shows on this list that aren't new but that I've discovered this year and these are a few of my new favourites. Except for Line of Duty. The new season was so exemplary I had to pop it on the list.

Without any further ado here are my Top TV Shows of 2021...So Far!!!
