British TV shows

Recommended Posts

Firstly, @ bensmith, not sure if I am doing a Sheldon here and not realising you are being sarcastic, but How I met your mother, and Big Bang is American.

My Favourite British TV Shows (being from England)

Red Dwarf - I own season 1 - 8 on DVD, need to get back to earth just to have it in my collection, and I am excited to see what RDX will be like when it launches in October on Dave.

Black Books

Spaced

The IT Crowd - Love how Chris O'Dowd is popping up in films now. e,g, the boat that rocked, Gulliver travels (Jack Black Remake)

Auf Weidersein pet (Parents love it, so sort of brought up on it)

Teachers (staring Andrew Lincoln who I believe is now in Walking the dead)

Two Pints of Larger and packet of Crisps (not so much when Johnny got killed off)

Britas Empire

Others don't come to mind, but there are more

bensmith5542 got banned for an advertising post. I think he may have been visiting the site for no other purpose than that.

On a different note:

Anyone seen Community? I was recommended this and I believe it's an American show, but haven't checked it out yet.

I agree, I loved Kingdom - have all three seasons sitting in my collection, it was a lovely and of course Stephen Fry was the star.

Loved all the characters and especially Aunt Auriel and Mr Snell :icon_mrgreen:

It´s really annoying because S3 had an amazing cliffhanger.We(and Peter) will never find out who his real parents are.
