A recent Digital Spy poll has voted Game of Thrones as the greatest TV show of the 21st century. GoT is closely followed by Stranger Things and Doctor Who.
Surprisingly and to the anger to many, Breaking Bad has been placed 5th on the list.
Naturally, this hasn't gone too well with Twitter, especially since Game of Thrones' last season was a shit-sandwich.

I think they meant Game of Thrones should've been the greatest TV show of the 21st century. https://t.co/Y4ajQWikvS— Improper Opinion (@bryanbabb316) August 1, 2020
Look, I love some, or even most, episodes and seasons of Game of Thrones, but it is such a mixed bag overall and had such a big drop in quality by no means the "Greatest TV Show Of 21st Century". Most popular? Sure, maybe. But greatest? No. https://t.co/JT8YCRJRzP— Brendan McDonald (@BrenTalksMovies) July 31, 2020
A show has to be consistently great from start to finish in order to receive this honor, GOT collapsed like a house of cards towards the end— Major Mechazawa 2.0 (@AllStarMeck97) July 31, 2020
Besides, we all know Twin Peaks: The Return (2017) is the greatest TV show of the 21st century
Not up for debate, either https://t.co/7TGwRaNLL2 pic.twitter.com/zGlSGjtHhD
Of the 21st century? In 2020? My dude, I hope you don't plan on changing your mind in the next 79 years. Also, after that last season, it's not even the greatest TV show of the years it came out of the decade it came out in. I fail to see how it deserves a greatest in the century https://t.co/3UOO1Vv0n1— Kusoneko (@HbKusoneko) July 31, 2020
Seasons 1-4 were alright. In 5 it started to falter, but still had good episodes. In 6 it fell apart, and by season 8 it was a pile of pig feces, which is probably an insult to pigs.— A. Bear Esq., MBE, ICBM, PSU, E173, ISO2171, QED. (@Bearocalypse) July 31, 2020
Greatest TV show of the 21st century? I can think of a few dozen that were greater.
Now, getting the popular vote means Game of Thrones is popular. But is it the best?
