G is the magic letter today and once again I found it was difficult to immediately think of childhood favourites that fit the bill.
Obviously, if this was a ‘Favourite Shows of All Time’ A-Z, it would be a no-brainer, with the Westerosi massive taking top billing. Add to that shows such as Ghost Whisperer, The Good Wife and a current delight, The Good Place and I’d be… good to go!
