I've probably given this more thought than it deserves...
  1. West wing
    A classic for a reason. 7 seasons of a classic show that showed us how to both walk and talk at the same time. CJ was my favourite female role model in my late teens, aided and abetted by the fact that Allison Janney and I share a first name divided only by one letter
  2. Parks and Rec
    I had a hard time deciding between this and the US version of The Office, but I think Parks and Rec wins based solely on the strength of Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson. I feel that on a desert island, Ron's sage wisdom would give me strength through rough times.
  3. Peep Show
    Partly for the uncomfortable-ness, partly because I had friends called both Mark and Jeremy at uni. A classic - I'm excited to see how they end the series in a couple of weeks
  4. Honourable mentions
    Friends, 24, Green Wing, Game of Thrones
