I'm currently loving Masterchef, I think it's exactly the kind of wholesome content I need as it comes into winter and I'm getting tired and just wanting to curl up in front of the TV.
That said, the new Netflix series Shadow and Bone was amazing, the special effects were great and I really enjoyed the characters and the behind-the-scenes stuff.
Buffy is probably both my favourite of all time and my childhood favourite - throughout my teen years I watched it with my mum, and even now if we're wanting something to watch we'll chuck a quick episode on!

We don't watch much regular television and prefer the convenience of Netflix/Stan so that we can watch what we want, when we want to watch it and without the ads. However, we are currently watching our way through the Ultimate Tag episodes on catch-up tv and we are all enjoying it. On Netflix/Stan, as a family we like series like Friends and The Nanny. For adult viewing, hubby and I watch a wide variety - currently The Handmaids Tale which is almost a little too sci-fi for our liking, but somehow the characters and plot make it believable.

Just started the second season of 'Keeping Faith' on the ABC, as long as you have a reasonable ear for the Welsh accent it's fabulous. My husband tried again this season but can't get the accent, then again he has problems with the Scots accent. It's a bit dark but also heartwarming, give it a go.
As a child we didn't have T.V. but our neighbours across the road did - my favourite Rin Tin Tin.
Hard to say all time favourite but probably Poirot starring David Suchet

I have so many favourite tv programs. As a child we used to watch Mr Squiggles, Lost In Space, Play School, Thunderbirds, any British Comedys as we came from England and Dr. Who. As we started to grow up I oved Little House on the Praire, Division 4, Matlock etc and now as a retired person, I love the News programs, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, The Rookie, Home and Away and any real life Ambulance - Emergency programmes. If I could I would write down all my programs that I love but there are too many to type.

I am not a big TV watcher, my favourite program is Antiques Roadshow, I enjoy the places they visit, the history that turns up and just the beautiful things people bring to the show. The only other things I watch are a good documentary or current affairs type programs.

Gogglebox! Apart from the characters and the fun they are having, we also get a sneaky peak at shows we may have missed and can follow up later. Perfect infotainment.

My favourite childhood show was fresh Prince of bel air. I loved the comedy and the importance of family. Now my favourite is vikings and the crown. I love the history it shows and how life was so long ago.

At this moment don't mind Amazing Grace. Did love Packed to the Rafters, Offspring, Secret Life of Us, A Place to call Home. As a child remember rushing home to watch Lost in Space. One of my favourites of all time would be The Big Bang Theory.

My favourite TV show from my childhood is "Lost In Space". I couldn't wait to get home and watch this after school, even though it was originally seen on our old black and white TV. I just loved all of the Robinson family, although I am sure I am not the only young girl to have had a crush on Major Don West. The robot was so realistic back then, and the special effects were great. How far we've come in the FX arena- it is magical now. I couldn't wait to see the episodes on a colour TV. To this day I am still a fan- even of the spin off Movie and new TV series. Such good memories of a happy time. I think this is the reason I am such a science fiction fan to this day.

iN MY CHILDHOOD (THE 1960S) I LOVED THE UNTOUCHABLES, TWILIGHT ZONE AND THE WESTERNS (INC RIFLEMAN, CISCO KID,WAGONTRAIN,RAWHIDE). IN THE 1970S, IT WAS INCREDIBLE HULK; BUT FAVOURITE OF ALL TIME WOULD BE TWILIGHT ZONE

British comedy - so much more relatable than American.
Enjoy The Chase before the News. Love Gardening Australia. Watch Spicks & Specks reruns nearly every night before turning to Netflix as there is not much on....
As a child I loved the Cisco Kid!!! As an adult Fawlty Towers.
Definitely cannot stand reality programs or soap operas.

I love anything that is not a cooking show or reality TV or a soap but do love drama's but they are on so late at night on free to air TV these days I no longer watch as I am heading to bed as at 9 pm no longer wanting to watch TV. I do catch up sometime on catch TV. They give us extra free to air TV but you don't get the new sessions on these channels at a reasonable time. So I have to admit looking at subscription TV when the budget allows it.

Documentaries and educational programs. NO stupid reality programs. British comedy always been favourite - Telegoons, Monty Python, Faulty Towers and probabaly best show is Dr Who

I think my favourite TV shows of all time were Fawlty Towers and Yes, Minister. The first because it was so outrageously funny and expressed the annoyance we all feel at times but can't give vent to our feelings and the second because I worked in the Public Service most of my working life and I know just how close to the truth this came. Fortunately though, we have escaped the TV trap and haven't even owned a TV for the last 25 years or so.

At the moment I am hooked on "The Serpent" on Netflix. I remember the news stories back in the 70s and then reading Richard Neville's brilliant book "Serpentine". I was glued to reports when Sobraj was finally captured. This series is incredibly true to events and the acting is just wonderful with people speaking the actual languages they conversed in. Yes it is subtitled into English when that happens. By contrast I am also addicted to "The Great British Sewing Bee", which I discovered by mistake after recording it instead of my planned programme. It is just so adorable with amateur sewers, both men and women competitively making given garments in a short time period. No crime, no violence, no bitchiness, no drugs, no sex. A peaceful change from my usual TV viewing.

At the moment we are watching Ru Pauls Drag Race, going through all the seasons when a new program isn't on. We have also recently watched Romulus, which although in an old form of Latin has subtitles and is easy to keep up with as the characters don't speak too quickly.
My favourite shows are usually comedy programs. I really liked The Witcher and am looking forward to the second instalment, but I don't have a favourite show of all time.

I love soooooo many shows.

Currently I'm binge watching Santa Clarita Diet for the 3rd time. I love it, and am so saddened that there's no more seasons.

Favourite of all time, Friends.
