Orange is the New Black and Waterloo Road, for me!

I only watched a couple of seasons of Lost at the time it aired (so it's been ages and I can't really remember much) and I've not seen the others.

Had to go with Lost & The Sarah Jane Adventures!

Whilst Lost can be very frustrating as it would have been much better if there was a clear PLAN from the start, it is a brilliant character drama at its heart. The use of flashbacks/flashforwards etc really help the show stand out and can often be highlights of the programme as you can delve further into the characters. The first season in particular is really interesting as characters are turned on their head as you learn more about them! The first three seasons are definitely better than the last three but it's still leagues ahead of many, many other shows.

The Sarah Jane Adventures was also, like Tracy Beaker, a show that didn't talk down to kids which made it stand out. Another solid spin-off to Doctor Who.

Could easily have gone with Orange is the New Black too! Another great character drama, helped by the flashbacks, similar to Lost.

This was the first group where I had seen more than two of the programmes so the first time I had to make a decision. I voted for Lost and The X Files ahead of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

The Sarah Jane Adventures is easily my favourite here wub.gif so mature for a kids show! Waterloo Road also gets my vote.

I watched every episode of Lost.........and really wish I hadn't.

Never seen Waterloo Road.

Never heard of Sarah Jane Adventures. Sounds like something out of Bunty.

The X Files - I watched a few series of that, and even bought the single of the theme tune. I know they searched for aliens and I remember what the two leads look like, but I cannot remember the storylines or much of the show at all.

I watched a few of Orphan Black. I watched the repeats and then they just stopped showing it and I lost my place sad.gif

I vote for Orange is The New Black, though I'm only on series 2 so far.
