Sylvain Chomet, the acclaimed director of the Oscar nominated The Triplets of Belleville is back with his second feature The Illusionist.

Let’s face it, The Simpsons is shit now and has been for the best part of a decade, while South Park continues to get better and better.

From the premiere of The Sopranos in 1999 up until the climax of The Wire in 2008, HBO ruled the American airwaves with a seemingly never-ending stream of hit shows.
