It is pretty good. I have seen all the episodes so far. If you have followed BSG before, you would be able to connect a bit more.

V is back with new episodes. Didn't get a chance to watch the two new episodes yet; its still sitting on my dvr. I am sure it would be good.

I don't watch a lot of TV, especially American TV (Fab and I prefer British murder mysteries, yes we're middle-aged) but I recently discovered The Wire, and LOVED the one episode I did watch. Anyone seen it? I think I watched like the ninth episode of Season 4 though, which is a bit of an awkward starting point. Also my friend lent me their DVDs of 30 Rock, which is pretty funny.

Some good British programs if anyone's interested are Spooks (about the MI5) and Black Books (comedy). I think I prefer the British way of doing things - more complex and intricate but less glamour and theatrics.

It wasn't very good, TBH... let's see how the conclusion goes (I am assuming there is one).

The facebook episode was the best of the season so far.

Eastenders?

British comedy sucks. Haven't seen much of Ricky Gervais Office but American one outpwns it. Barring Mind your language, haven't found interest in any British sitcoms. And who the hell watches Mr Bean? Yuck.

Totally Agree, Michall Scott rocks, Gervais wasn't even funny, watched a couple of the British version, also the casting in the American version is miles better than the UK version.

Honestly, I don't even bother watching British TV. My TV is used 99% of the time for playing video games. I just download US TV shows and watch them.

Even my colleague at work (100% British) says he just watches the US TV shows that air on some channels here. The few UK shows he watches are all political talk shows, except for Dr Who.

Although, I've enjoyed one "recent" UK TV show... The IT Crowd. But, that I had downloaded too... it's not been on the air in a while.

I prefer the UK original The Office over the NBC American. British comedy is wayy different from in-your-face American comedy most of the time. I guess you appreciate it more if you 'get' it. Bean may be the exception, but Rowan Atkinson isnt half the talent in Bean as a comedian as he was in Black Adder. In effect, Bean just shows what a great actor the guy is.

Ever watch A Bit of Fry and Laurie? Yeah thats Dr.House we're talking about!

I prefer US shows to UK shows especially when it comes to sitcoms however UK pwns US in reality shows and documentaries.

For example:
UK Apprentice >>> US Apprentice
Sir Alan Sugar >>> Donald Trump (jeez the guy can't even speak properly)

And Ricky Gervais is hilarious. As ammark bhai said above you have to get it to find it funny. Overall I think UK comedians are much more talented and witty than their American counterparts. They don't have to shout and swear constantly to make you laugh. Check out Jimmy Carr, Omid Djalili, Hugh Dennis, David Mitchell.

Zeeshan bhai two sitcoms I would recommend to you: Outnumbered and The Peep Show. British comedy is subtle and complex while American comedy is in your face and laugh-out-loud comedy. Both have their own charm and I enjoy both.

I absolutely detest Eastenders, Coronation Street and all the other British soaps. I have been here for 7 years and have never watched a full episode of those shows. That's true with Dr. Who as well.

I've tried UK apprentice (recent) and watched US apprentice (all seasons, including the celebrity ones)... while I think the Donald is a tool, I have to say the US apprentice is a far more entertaining show (maybe it is because the Donald is a tool? *shrug*). It's actually pretty much the only reality show I watch religiously (other than American Idol auditions episodes).

Oh hell, I even watched NZ apprentice recently... felt no interest in continuing after the first episode.


I actually wanna try Spooks... keep hearing about it... even from friends in Canada. :X

I only watched 2-3 episodes of the US Apprentice but I found it way too artificial for my liking.
