Best Series on All4


Cast: Martin Freeman, Patrick Wilson, Kirsten Dunst, Ewan McGregor

Rating: 93% (Rotten Tomatoes)


Fargo is inspired by the film of the same name by the Coen brothers, and each season follows a new set of characters and a new storyline. The plot description on IMDB does a nice job of summing it up:

Various chronicles of deception, intrigue and murder in and around frozen Minnesota. Yet all of these tales mysteriously lead back one way or another to Fargo, North Dakota.


It's A Sin

Cast: Olly Alexander, Nathaniel Curtis, Shaun Dooley, Omari Douglas

Rating: 98% (Rotten Tomatoes)


This heartwrenching original series follows four friends over the course of the 1980s, as the AIDS crisis deepens. It's received universal praise, and we can't recommend it enough. The ensemble cast is fantastic too, with Neil Patrick Harris and Stephen Fry both making appearances.




Cast: Kaya Scodelario, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Dempsie, Hannah Murray

Rating: 74% (Rotten Tomatoes)

This raucous series launched the careers of Nic Hoult and Kaya Scodelario, this series follows a group of British teenagers as they try "to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures."



The IT Crowd

Cast: Chris O'Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, Matt Berry


Rating: 84% (Rotten Tomatoes)

This comedy series set in the basement of the huge Reynholm Industries building follows IT consultants Roy (Chris O'Dowd) and Moss (Richard Ayoade) who are comedy gold together - especially when paired with their new boss, Jen (Katherine Parkinson).


The West Wing

Cast: Rob Lowe, Stockard Channing, Dulé Hill, Martin Sheen

Rating: 75% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Martin Sheen and Rob Lowe, as the U.S. President and his deputy communications director, play politics in this innovative Washington, D.C., drama series from award-winning producers John Wells, Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme.


Derry Girls


Cast: Saoirse Monica-Jackson, Nicola Coughlan, Louisa Harland, Tommy Tiernan

Rating: 98% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Set in the early 1990s, as Northern Ireland slowly edged towards a peace process, Derry Girls follows a group of four girls - and one estranged English cousin - as they try to navigate school life alongside the ongoing Troubles. It's absolutely hilarious and if you haven't seen it yet, you need to change that ASAP.


This Is England '86

Cast: Andrew Ellis, Andrew Shim, Chanel Cresswell, Danielle Watson

As he finishes school, Shaun realises he has big choices to make about his future. Set against the backdrop of the 1986 World Cup, this series poignantly captures a community in Britain as they grapple with crime and search for "something that resembles a future".


Peep Show

Cast: David Mitchell, Robert Webb

Rating: 96% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Mark and Jez are a couple of twenty-something roommates who have nothing in common - except for the fact that their lives are anything but normal. Mayhem ensues as the pair strive to cope with day-to-day life.

One Tree Hill

Cast: Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, Hilarie Burton

Rating: 68% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Half-brothers Lucas and Nathan Scott trade between kinship and rivalry both on the basketball court and in the hearts of their friends in the small, but not so quiet town of Tree Hill, North Carolina.

The Inbetweeners

Cast: Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas

Rating: 83% (Rotten Tomatoes)

The misadventures of Will, Jay, Neil, and Simon have become iconic since they first aired in 2009 and, even if the films were somewhat of a let down, it's still pretty hard to beat the original series.

Malcolm in the Middle

Cast: Frankie Muniz, Bryan Cranston, Jane Kaczmarek, Justin Berfield

Rating: 91% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Does anyone else always forget Bryan Cranston was famous for Malcolm in the Middle long before Breaking Bad? No? Just us? Either way, there's a reason he made his name - he's brilliant in this equally brilliant sitcom.

Father Ted

Cast: Dermot Morgan, Ardal O'Hanlon, Frank Kelly, Pauline McLynn

Rating: 93% (Rotten Tomatoes)
