Inspired by thefilm thread, I thought I'd start a tv thread.
It feels a bit naughty, but I don't care
I don't actually have a tv, but who needs one?
Deadwood. Shakespearian-level swearing, cut down in it's prime
Justified
QI (Stephen Fry is a very clever, very funny man)
Blackadder
Breaking bad
River Cottage
Game of Thrones...it's got dragons!

I liked "Fame" when I was a kid. I just discovered the Korean series "Dream High" - very addictive!

We also really like "Psych".

There was a Brit-Com way back called "Good Neighbors" in the US, they had a different name over there, about an urban homesteading couple with very conservative neighbors, hilarious.

And my husband and I laughed out loud more for "Coupling" (British version) than any other TV show, ever.

Firefly very much appealed to my individualist streak.

Simon: So does it happen a lot? Government commandeering your ship, telling you where to go?
Mal: That's what governments are for... get in a man's way.

I also liked the Prisoner and Twighlight zone, and Star Trek. On the buses is a regular favourite in my brothers house, and I cannot help being glued to the set when he puts them on. Only fools and horses I can watch until the cows come home too.

I think it is about time I watched this! so many people think it's great, and I am , well behind time i guess! The closest i have been to a vampire series is hammer house of Horror and that would be pretty cheesy by todays standards.
