The film “The Wire” was convincingly victorious. Nearly a quarter of the 206 electors placed the series as number one, and half of the electorate ranked number one. Numbers 2 and 3 of the Top 100 Voters are also from the American Series; ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ respectively. Also among the top ten are shows such as Fleabag, Game of Thrones and The Office (original British series).

The list mainly contains English-language series, but Danish, French and Spanish productions have also been voted on, among others. The highest ranked non-English title is the Danish-Swedish title “The Bridge”, at number 34.
