24 (not interested)
House (not interested)
Alias (not interested)

:nuts:

I'd add ER. I had absolutely NO interest, but my gf loved it so we bought the dvds. I'm now 100% hooked.

There are episodes with hookers, pimps, drug dealers and junkies and very very weird but funny main characters, but its all good. Cant say I have seen an episode where they've done it, though they do try to heh.

I will say one thing though if you don't mind swear words, and any of the above then Trailer Park Boys is for you. I personally think its the work of a comedy genius.

I believe if you wanted to watch an episode lots of them have been upped to videogoogle. But I couldn't get hold of Season DVD's here in the UK but luckily my dad was doing some work in Canada at the time and he managed to get me all 6 seasons. Cost me a bomb but was well worth it.

Was about to recommend Life on Mars myself. Absolutely stunning series from the BBC :up:

The whole lot is available from the usual sources!

From the Life on Mars wiki

The format of this show mixes time travel with police drama, with the central character being modern-day policeman Sam Tyler (played by John Simm), who after being hit by a car in 2006 finds himself back in 1973. There, he is working for Manchester and Salford Police CID under DCI Gene Hunt (played by Philip Glenister). Over the course of the series, Tyler faces various culture clashes, most frequently regarding differences in approaches to policing between Tyler - a product of the more politically correct twenty-first century, where suspect rights and the chain and preservation of forensic evidence are more stringently observed - and his 1973 counterparts, who work in a police force where sexism, racism, police brutality and institutionalised minor corruption are casually regarded as routine parts of the job

The series also features a strong ambiguity concerning Tyler's predicament: it is unclear whether he really has travelled back in time. Is he in a coma in 2006 and imagining his experiences? Is he really in 1973 and mentally unstable, albeit with remarkably accurate 'knowledge' of the future? Or is he still in 2006 and suffering from the mental delusion that he is living in 1973? This uncertainty is conveyed through a surreal approach, such as when the young girl featured in the Test Card F or Open University lecturers occasionally speak to Tyler through his television set late at night. Tyler also occasionally hears voices and electronic noises - apparently from people and machines around his hospital bed - which lead him to believe that he is in a coma (although other details, such as the remarkable amount of 'detail' and tangibility in the world Tyler has found himself, may suggest otherwise).

I'll have to chime in and also reccommend Rome. Great series.

Edit:
Arg, missed that you had already seen it. I guess I'll support adding The 4400 to the queue. Excellent show to watch back-to-back.

:no:


UK Office >>> US Office.

David Brent FTW!!! Inflatable penises, "Hot love on the hot love highway" music and training seminars. Watch after the credits too, there is always a clip a few seconds long that is usually funny. There are only 2 short seasons (6 episodes each i think) and a 2 hour special.

God no!

The only similarity is that it's set in space.

I personally don't like Babylon 5.

:lol:

don't know much about the space series except that I generally don't 'get into' them.... don't get me wrong I've watched my share of Stark Trek episodes.. just didn't enjoy them enought to dedicate the required time to watch them all..

the only one that I was ever able to get into was Firefly..... and I've seen them all and the movie... twice :D

The Shield. I can sit there and watch an entire season straight and that is really saying something because I can't usually sit still for that long.

They're two different beasts. I was a huge fan of the UK version and didn't watch the US version when it first came out. I decided to take the plunge later on and I can't believe I didn't start sooner. The US version stands very well on its own.
