The last year has seen some great television- a lot of which was watched on computer screens.

The phenomenal success of Breaking Bad brought the availability of internet TV to anyone still left hiding under a rock.
Beyond excellent dramas like Breaking Bad and Top of the Lake, the last year has seen some excellent new comedy come to our screens.
Yonderland was a welcome replacement from Channel 4, stepping into the shoes of Monty Python with a dose of fantasy silliness.
And just when you though Channel 4 had exhausted the fly-on-the-wall reality TV format, along came Gogglebox. Essentially a TV show about people watching TV, the programme has built up a steady audience of two million viewers.
But returning to the depths of reality television, this year's TV turkey goes to X Factor. The show continued to plough on, although no one seemed to be quite sure why.

1/6 Yonderland, Sky One
In the year that Monty Python announced their reunion, we also discovered their true heirs. The team behind Horrible Histories made this supremely silly fantasy adventure in which “the chosen mum” Debbie must save the puppet-populated world of Yonderland.
2/6 Googlebox, Channel 4
It shouldn’t work, but it does. Watch other people watch telly turns out to be not only fantastic entertainment, but also a timely reminder of telly’s power to bring us together, even in the age of personal devices and multiple channels.
3/6 Toast of London, Channel 4
Toast of London is co-written by Father Ted’s Arthur Mathews and stars Matt Berry as fruity-voiced actor Stephen Toast. We need only list a few character names to convince you of its genius: Clem Fandango, Kikini Bamalam, Yvonne Wryly, Hamilton Meathouse and Dinky Frinkbuster.
4/6 Breaking Bad, Netflix
2013 was the year internet TV went mainstream. Netflix original series like House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black both made for addictive viewing, but it was Breaking Bad’s pitch-perfect finale that finally convinced the last stragglers to subscribe.
5/6 Top of the Lake, BBC2
There are a lot of TV detective shows about missing girls, but there’s nothing else like Top of the Lake. Set in rural New Zealand, it combined breathtaking scenery with eerie atmosphere and a heart-rending central performance from Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss.
6/6 Turkey of the year: The X Factor, ITV
The ratings are in terminal decline, the judges have run out of things to say and, after ten years, it appears the country has also run out of singing talent. This series, even lovely Dermot looked like he’d rather be somewhere - anywhere - else: So why, oh why has ITV signed The X Factor up for another three years?
