26 Best Cult TV Shows Ever

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Did you see that someone in the comments complained that it was British, and therefore shouldn't be on the list? :lol:

Can't get more culty that Doctor Who.

Farscape, which was on the list, was made in Australia (albeit via a US company). How many are complaining there? :P

Just the one, then someone else said "the world doesn't revolve around America, you know" and someone else replied "they think it does", or somesuch.

I'd only heard of eleven of them and probably only seen about five or six. :?

Star Trek TOS doesn't even make the list? Surely it should be No 1?
No Batman? Riddle me that.

I wouldn't describe all of them as "cult", I mean sitcoms? But Archer is hilarious (only no. 25!), and Firefly was brilliant (only no. 12!).

Monty Python isn't cult. If you can feed someone the line "you're not the messiah", and they answer "that's what I said", then clearly the show has lost it's power :P

they have Wonder showzen, but not "You can't do that on television" which was first? a show that each ep featured at least one skit of a kid tied up in a dungeon, or in front of a mexican firing squad?

hmph

I guess this article is more "the 26 shows this journo considers to be the best for as long as I've been watching TV".

:lol:

One of the comments on there is:

I think a better title for this list would be: "Some cult TV shows in no particular order."
