Title: Favorite TV shows?
Post by: Matty on May 06, 2008, 05:00:23 AM
Come on admit it, youre all slaves to the screen. Oh, or is that just me?

Whatever. What are your favorite TV shows? Or alternativly, what shows make you want to pull your eyes out and burn them?

------------------
Possibly my favorite show is The Riches with Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver. Admitedly, the only reason I started watching was for Eddie Izzard. But is is an awesome show. I'm currently mourning the end of Season 2. :'(

Other favs include-
Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Family Guy
American Dad
Invader Zim
(I know I'm digging myself further and further into Hot Topic hell.)
South Park
The Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy
(k, I've left Hot Topic, now I'm just a child..I'm sure I like some shows that arent Cartoons)
Scrubs
My name is Earl
and countless anime...

'Star Trek' repeats and new 'Doctor Who' (which I forget to watch every week and end up watching online.)

I don't really watch TV on TV anymore.. it's all TV-on-DVD or TV-on-the-internet.

I probably only turn on the TV once every few days now.. and basically all I do is flick through the channels, get angry and all the shit and adverts, turn it off and go back online.

I have always been intolerant of ad-breaks.. now I just can't be fucked with them at all. Television just seems so.. crap.. compared to the other options now.

Uh, faves? I used to be a diehard 'Buffy' fan but that era has very much past.. I still have 'My So Called Life' on DVD. And 'Star Trek' and 'Twin Peaks'. And British comedy (that I never watched on TV.. only got into via borrowed DVDs and/or the internet) 'Spaced', 'Black Books'...

I think I may be un-American...  I like a bunch of TV shows, but if I miss them (which happens a lot),
I barely notice.

The only ones I make the effort to be sure I don't miss:
MYTHBUSTERS!  (I don't get pay-TV, so I have to get my brother to record it for me).
30 Rock (I only just started watching this, but I love it).

Others...
old Star Trek...  runs at 3AM weekends here.  I tape it, and see how far into the episode
I have to watch before I know which one it is.

CSI (The Vegas one is usually good, and the Miami version is just fun to laugh at.)

Dr. Who and Battlestar Galactica (on Sci-Fi, so I have to remember to get my brother
to tape them, and I sometimes forget.)

Chuck (please bring it back soon NBC...)

oh, and the Dead Like Me movie...  can't wait.

(...and there are all the not-broadcast anymore shows like Buffy...  Firefly... )

I watch the Food Network non-stop throughout the day. I also enjoy Gilmore Girls re-runs, watching movies or documentaries on HBO, and Turner Classic Movies. And PBS. PBS is super good.

Doctor Who. Best show ever. Nothing will ever beat it.  Torchwood is OK but pales in comparison.

Also good - Astroboy, Peep Show, Mitchell and Webb, Little Britain, IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh.
Title: Re: Favorite TV shows?
Post by: Katherine May Williams on May 06, 2008, 06:26:11 PM
Family Guy
Brass Eye

Yes and yes.

I have love for both Stewie and Chris Morris.

(I have my brothers to thank for exposing me to these two, left to my own devices I might never have seen either.)

Oh! 'Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe'. There's another that I like. I love his anger. I want to kiss him with tongues.

'Later With Jools Holland', 'University Challenge', 'QI', 'The South Bank Show', 'The Culture Show'.. uh, whatever that zoo show was earlier that I flicked past that had a baby lion on it. Cute.as.shit. Any David Attenborough nature documentaries and Michael Palin travel documentaries. I appreciate the goodness of all these.. while mostly not watching them.

I have all of TOS on DVD now (and the original cast movies). I watch em like that. Get my Spock fix as and when I need it.

I noticed that a channel (I want to say Virgin?) is showing TNG episodes everyday at 8pm now. I'm endeavoring to remember this (as I have no TNG on DVD or tape.. and I still have a little thing for Wesley Crusher. Tell no one.)

True. But Tom Baker will always be the best doctor. Tennant's teeth simply cannot compete. And John Barrowman is lovely but Torchwood is awful.

Also good - The Mighty Boosh.

Ah I have this on DVD also. Again thanks to my brother. I like it, but I get the impression that it's probably a lot more fun to BE The Mighty Boosh than it is to watch The Mighty Boosh...

I agree with every single thing you just said. Are we related??  ;D
David Tennant is better than Christopher Ecclestone - but neither compare to the magnificence of Tom Baker. I love John Barrowman but Torchwood is indeed terrible and the creators of it must be punished severely. Preferably with something rusty and dull.

Ah I have this on DVD also. Again thanks to my brother. I like it, but I get the impression that it's probably a lot more fun to BE The Mighty Boosh than it is to watch The Mighty Boosh...
The Goodies always struck me the same way. For all you kiddies out there who have not heard of The Goodies go out and find them. They are rad.

I am also a fan of Star Trek. In fact if something is considered kinda geeky ie Mythbusters, Monty Python, Star Trek - Then I probably like it. But its ok - because my mum thinks I am cool  :coolsmiley:

Aw how could I forget Doctor Who! Ive only seen the revival series, but once I get old and have nothing left to do, I'll probably buy all the DVDs and go on a 3 week non-stop Doctor Who bender. I want to see the Astro-boy cartoons, but I want to read the Manga first...though if youll notice, all the volumes are like 10 cents on amazon, while volume 1 is like $20, and I'm not paying that much.

I also have begun to watch most of my favorite shows on DVD of Hulu or something equally legal... It's fucking impossible to watch shows that have a continuing plotline, because I can't watch if I missed an episode. Family Guy, kids cartoons, sitcoms, and etc, it's ok because it doesnt really matter that much. And yet those are the DVDs I own... Family Guy/Simpsons/American Dad/Invader Zim.. lol

Are yours the original-original version, or the ones with all the space FX redone?

If you haven't seen 'em, it's some pretty neat work.  They re-did all the external
spaceship-pix (and monsters, and planets....)pretty much shot-for-shot; the angles
and action all stay the same, but it's modern digital FX instead of the campy models
and cello-wrap stuff.

Ya know, when this show first came out, I was completely prepared for it to suck in a Major Key.
I've spent way too much time around people who look like Earl (and his associates), or who act like
Earl, and Earl's ex reminds me WAAAAAAY too much of my brother's ex...

...but it's really a great show.  It's well written, directed and preformed, and they don't rely on simple
stereotypes to sell the characters.











oh, and Catalina.......   Muy Caliente!

Yes, I think it's a great show too. And Earl's ex is the best living barbie I have ever seen.

Speaking of muy caliente and cara mia: The original Addams Family 1960's black and white tv series (it's out on dvd) is fantastic.

Earl's ex is the best living barbie I have ever seen.


She started out playing in movies like Poison Ivy: The New Seduction, so it was a huge surprise that she was so great at comedy.  Although she has had thousands of fantastic lines on the show, the one that really stands out for me is when she referred to "The Last Supper" as the "Jesus eatin' dinner pitcher".  It's the way she says things that makes it so funny.  I like Crabman a lot, too.  Jason Lee is just perfect as Earl - I can't imagine anyone else doing Earl without somehow ruining the character.  Earl's brother is from another planet and we wouldn't have it any other way.

My list:

Jeopardy, religiously.
Bones, often.
Earl, often.
House, once in a while.
Dr. Who, when I remember it's on, which is think is just about all the time.
And that's just about it....except for when HBO or Showtime has a good series.

Also...  There was a movie (mighta been a horror movie?) and I can't remember which one it was.
There were two cops, very small roles, but the characters' names were Officer Milner and Officer McCord.
I thought it was funny, but it bugs me that I can't remember the film.

Hmmm... 

I am conflicted. 
Some of you may have caught Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which I thought had been
shitcanned, but will apparently be back in the Fall.  I had some hopes for it, but was a bit disappointed
with the actual program.

As it turns out, not only will the show be back, but Shirley Manson (yes, that Shirley Manson) will be
joining the cast. 

So here's the question:  Of course I'll tune in at least once or twice, but do I dare to get my hopes up
that they'll fix the writing problems, or feature Shirley M enough to make it worth the effort to overlook
them?

Ah, shut your hairy trap ^.^ Some of them shows are pretty rocknroll, I'll have you know - and Joe Strummer would well badly of appreciated the (space)pirate-radio broadcasts of Captain DJ and his crew.

A little NYTimes (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/15/arts/television/15lyal.html?th&emc=th) discussion of the guy behind (the current) Dr. Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane Adventures.

Post by: Indja on June 16, 2008, 06:44:41 AM
Urgh, Sarah Jane Adventures sucked arse. And is anyone else getting pissed off with Dr Who - no-one ever fucking DIES!!! I'm not a scary morbid freak-thing, don't worry, it's just after what, three seasons? the only people that have actually died, for proper, not coming back, not ever, are bit-parts and aliens. It's just not on. After a while, it just means you lose all interest in the show when someone's in Mortal Peril cos you know they're gonna be fine. It sucks. They shoulda killed Martha when they had the chance. Man, I hate that preppy, bucktoothed skett...

Ok, you can look now, I've stopped geekranting.

Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes were good.

The Daleks should be subject to the laws of gravity.

Daleks flying makes perfect sense to me. I have no problem with it at all. Sonic screwdrivers that suddenly become a
fix it all magic wand kind of bug me but I love the show to much to really care.

Doctor Who did start out as a way to educate kids about history alternating between historical and futuristic episodes. When they realised that the kids only really liked the scary stuff like the Cybermen and the Daleks they gave up on that idea and just made it entertainment.

(I just realised how much of a Doctor Who geek I really am. Disturbing.)

Of course Daleks can fly!

"Oh, no! scary robots! they'll exterminate* us! ... let's go upstairs..."

But really though, if they can't fly they can't go anywhere that isn't completely level. Look at them! If they can't fly, they can't even go over a simple threshold. Forget gravel roads, forests, or even a tiny speed bump. Besides, if a police box can fly (with a complete planet in tow, no less), you can be sure a Dalek can too!

No Cee, Red Dwarf does not suck.

In other news, I was talking to this scottish guy and he said there were really evil guys celled Astromen? or something like that, in Dr. Who, who were much more scary than the Daleks since they could run and walk stairs and all that. I never noticed these guys when I watched the doctor. Then again, as soon as a Dalek came into the screen I disappeared behind the couch so I might have missed some parts of episodes. According to this guy they were metallic looking and had a kind of funnel on their heads. Anybody?

I still regret not buying that Dalek dustbin I saw at the Strand a couple of years ago. It yelled EXTERMINATE!! when you threw something in, but at the time I thought it was ridiculously expensive.

For fans of the doctor: there's a stamp shop opposite Stanley Gibbons (at the Strand, in London) that sells a shitload of Dr. Who stuff.

have you read the fray comic by Joss? it's seriously AMAZING, stunning, moving! plus frays in the new buffy comic arc so you should read it.

Yeah i actually saw serenity before i saw firefly, and i loved it, i though the whole storyline was so thought provoking with the reavers and the thing that happened on 'miranda'.

i'm really looking forward to dollhouse! and dr horrible's sing-along! Joss is indeed the boss!

Aw, no fair! I only got issues 2 - 5 of the Buffy comic, cos it was like that collection thing, you know? I'll have to hit Ebay or something, start saving up! I well wanna read the Fray comics too, they look amazing.

Man, the reavers scare me so much! I just watched that Firefly episode - Bushwhacked, is it? - where that guy sees an attack and then like turns into one. Scared me shitless! And that bit in Serenity when they're watching the woman's report on Miranda and you can just hear her screaming in the background. SO COOL! XD

I dunno if I'll be able to watch Dollhouse when it's aired, cos I'm in England, and my step-mum has Total Control over the telly after 6pm, which sucks. Guess I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for a DVD release. But yeah, it looks amazing. And DR HORRIBLE OMG!!! SO excited! Captain Hammer is my desktop ^.^

I don't like Angel that much, but it has it's good bits. Like that bit in Season Five when Angel "improvises" and chucks that spoon at that guy! It's well funny XD But nah, it's nothing on Buffy. Cracking finale though, and I ADORE Fred! She's so cute! She's like Kaylee, just adorable.

The faith episodes in angel's first season i honestly think are outstanding! Angel definantly has it's moment. But yeah it's no buffy, but i guess it's pretty different and probably the best spin-off i know.

I'm really lucky with the comics as i'm in the England too, so no real comic stores, but luckily a cool independent video store has started to do new comics in my city! so they're no real hassle to get!

oh man i totally agree about the reavers, that episode in firefly is some dark shit!

Have you heard about the shepherd book comic? (i think it's a comic) it's gonna unravel the mystery of him, there was so much left to tell (i actully know some interesting spoilers) have you read the serenity comics? i've only read 'those left behind' which connects the bit in bettween the series and the film, but it's great (they capture river really well!)

I'll have to wait and see what channel Dollhouse is on, as i don't have sky, i may have to settle for watching it on the internet.... and then wait for the boxset to watch it properly.

Unfortunately, you must pretend you never saw that, as it contradicts the back-story explaing the origins of the Reavers.

This is the truth.  Anything else you hear about the Reavers is an evil lie.




Instead of fucusing on scary Reavers, how about more "real world" sort of scary things...
I like Saffron Bridgette Yolanda that woman...  I suppose if I had anything to steal, she'd be scarier.

Shepherd comics? YEAH!! I looove Shepherd! I've heard some cracking spoilers too... *wonders if they're the same as yours*  I haven't read the Serenity comics, but I'm gonna get Those Left Behind ASAP. I'm pretty lucky cos I'm only about 1/2 an hour away from Manchester on the train, and there's a whole bunch of comic book stores there, including a Forbidden Planet - one of the guys in there fancies me, it's well funny ^.^

I think the internet truly is the saviour of Joss Whedon - without it, he'd most likely be screwed, genius that he is!

I didn't think Bushwhacked contradicted the Serenity story, I just figured, you know, most reavers are from Miranda but SOME are crazy people who saw all their families raped to death. I dunno, I pretty much ignore any kinds of continuity weirdness in plots.

And I LOVE Saffron. She's so goddamned cool! And cute ^.^ I reckon that's one of the main things that make me go "aaaw" when I remember they cancelled Firefly - she woulda been a great recurring villain thing. Her and Niska, I reckon.

And I LOVE Saffron. She's so goddamned cool! And cute ^.^ I reckon that's one of the main things that make me go "aaaw" when I remember they cancelled Firefly - she woulda been a great recurring villain thing. Her and Niska, I reckon. Eeeew, War Stories!!! Made my toes curl! I think Niska's way scarier than Saffron.

...and WHEN it is decided to make more Firefly/Serenity film, TV, big-screen, or internet...
...that scary mean nasty ol' Niska is D-E-D... while the so-cute-you-don't-mind-that-she-just-ripped-you-off
SafYoBridg is still alive out there somewhere...  plotting her next caper... :coolsmiley:


Wait a sec....   Hey, Mal didn't kill him...  wtf?

*mosh for Niska* Love that guy. Mal killed his torturer, I thought, Niska kinda crawled away. And I didn't say she was so cute I wouldn't mind if she ripped me off - I just think she's cute.

I swear, if Mal and Inara don't shag soon, my damn head's gonna pop. I HATE will-they-won't-they's that don't. Ack!

For the record, we're kinda turning into a bit of a swamble here.

Lol, yeah. I'm dreading the story's continuation though, cos let's face it - they're Joss Whedon characters, they're young, they're in love, they FINALLY get it on... They're so doomed.

Question:  Um...  Ms. Ninja, what's a "swamble"?   :-\

Observation from years of TV watching: As long as Mal and Inara want each other, but don't have each other,
everything will be fine.  If they get together, all will go straight to shit shite, both in-story, and in terms of quality
of story itself.  They won't be happy, and the story will immediately start to suck.

Kaylee and Simon should be okay together, as they are less central characters, and their non-togetherness was not
the product of two forceful personalities unable to take the first step.

I think Mal and Inara would be fine together... He may be quite stubborn, and she may be quite forceful, but they both fold for the other's sake without question.

...and she's gonna jettson her career to accommodate his ego?
Ummmm, no.

...or he's gonna be able to deal with her keeping her job?
Ummmmm, no.  That's already a source of tension, even though he freely admits it's not officially his concern.

Shoe on the other foot:

...she's gonna be cool with working backwater planets so he can keep being Mr. Desperado Smuggler guy?
Not likely.  (...more likely than either of the above, but NOT likely...)

...he's gonna give up the wandering outlaw lifestyle so she can find more suitable clientele?
Why not just shoot him now?



Then again, I suppose we could learn that both Inara and Shepherd Book are/were secret agents of the Resistance, secretly
plotting the overthrow of the Fed government, and that she actually didn't um, ya know, do it with her clients, rather
that they were all secret spy-contacts....

I had always assumed that Shepherd Book, was in fact some top Fed scientist linked to the project.

Meh, I took him at face value...


...which is to say, someone who came from a rather violent past, possibly in covert military service or somesuch,
...but who has now sought out a life of spiritual contemplation, if not necessarily of uninterrupted peace...
...analogous to the knights and soldiers who returned from the Crusades and entered monasteries.

I get the feeling that if he had just retired, the feds would have treated him differently... seeing as how he was in a very shady ship.

Swamble - collective noun for a group of three or more geeks. Occasionally, I forget who's company I'm in, and use words invented in a different social group - terribly sorry! For future reference, if I call you a skagnasher, a remtard or a james, it means I don't like you. If I call you a moose, a chumble or an oozaboofuss, it means I do. Now, back to the point in hand:

I think I agree with CGB in that Shepherd Book has moved on from his violent past, but I think Raliel is closer with the "working for the Feds" thing than the "secret spy" thing. Hell, you never know, maybe he was an Operative!

As for the whole Mal/Inara thing, I have to say, if they /did/ get it on, everything would suck, but that doesn't mean I don't want it to happen. They couldn't stay together, for the reasons CGB listed, not to mention the fact that JOSS WHEDON HATES HIS 'SHIPS!!! Seriously, anyone - /including/ Simon and Kaylee - that Joss Whedon invents who hook up are going to either get shot, burn to death in the mouth of hell, move to LA, ascend, be imprisoned underwater, run off with a Chaos Demon, be impaled on a scythe, be killed by a vampire, change sexual orientation, turn out to be purest evil, be sent to hell or transform into a crazy blue-haired psycho-bitch. So, even though I'm DYING for Mal and Inara to get it on, they just can't, cos if either of them died... I don't think my body can actually manufacture enough tears for that! Maybe if they bring Firefly back, they can shag on the last last LAST episode, I think it would be OK as long as we never saw them again. It just kills me, you know?! And there is no WAY Simon and Kaylee are safe - if anything, they're in more danger because they're more disposable. You couldn't have Firefly without Mal, or Zoe for that matter. River's better now, so she doesn't need anyone looking out for her, and if Kaylee died, everyone would be heart-broken, which makes for BRILLIANT television. I'm telling you, they're doomed.

you are brilliant!! haha, don't forget left at the alter and flew away on a helecopter... but then again, who did really care about riley....?

this is really turning into talking all things Joss, we're taking over!

for the whole mal & inara thing, it would be dangerous to hook them up, unless done very well... but this is joss! i would have full faith in him doing it right, if there was more serenity/firefly in the future....

Yes, yes I am.

No-one cared about Riley. Riley was a mook. HATE!

I don't think they are ever going to hook up, but I agree that if they did, Joss is the one guy I'd trust to do it right. Because, you know, it's like /up/ to me! XD But no, I don't think they're gonna make another season of Firefly. Maybe a Serenity II, and the comics seems to be cracking on, which is nice. But Firefly? Nah.

okay we'll stop. But in last words i also doubt more firefly/serenity, but then again no-one ever thought there would be anything after firefly and they got a film.. so joss is well... yes the boss (i keep on thinking of bruce springsteen whenever this is said)

What of Buffy?  Did anyone catch the sad little movie?  It was cute, but harmless.  Who'd have thought it could not only
be revived, but that it could become the monster [pun intended] that it has?  Well, Joss knew.

Dateline:
1966-1969 - "Star Trek" (cancelled)
1973-4 - "Star Trek" cartoon series (cancelled, probably a wise move)
1979 "Star Trek The Motion Picture" (that's ten years later, people...)
1982 "Star Trek II: the much better Motion Picture..."
     oh, this is taking too long...  skip to the middle...
2009 "Star Trek: the 11th Motion Picture"... (43 years from its birth, the campy little morality-play space opera lives on.)

While Joss and Gene are/were two different sorts of creative genius, I think it's a fair parallel.  There's no reason
to put a time-limit on this. Just 'cuz it's not coming out next year doesn't mean your kids won't love it when it
comes to the full-immersion holo-plex-theatre in 2016.

OK, first Mr. Angel hires a bunch of extras to play "bystanders", then he does some hokey tricks
that only work if you're trapped in the limited perspective and absence of depth-preception produced
by a TV camera, and the "bystanders" all act amazed.  You are supposed also to be distracted by his emo
hair and "bad boy" style... 
 :sign5:

The dialogue is all just window-dressing, fake drama and so on, so who's shouting what at whom is irrelevant.

After watching more videos, i realized CA and the other guy sucked, "TELL ME WHAT´S IN THE ENVELOPE"

I used to like Criss Angel show until he changed his hair to how it is looking now.

I also love Gene Simmons: Family Jewels but then A&E translated the original audio to spanish which sucks.

I am really into Mythbusters.

That movie was awful... I think it came out the same year as I was born, I'm not sure. But the difference between Buffy anf Firefly is that BUFFY DIDN'T GET CANCELLED PART-WAY THROUGH THE FIRST SEASON! I feel this is a rather large difference! However, I think that if Mr Whedon continues with his strangely-punkish, stick-it-to-the-man Dr Horrible style thing - just make the damn things and hope people like them - then we could see a lot more of Firefly/Serenity. I sure hope so.

And Bruce Springsteen is "the boss". Joss is just "boss". There's a difference. *nerd-pout*

well issues 6-10 (no future for you) are in a TPB like 'the long way home' http://www.amazon.co.uk/Buffy-Season-Eight-Vampire-Numbered/dp/159307963X/ref=pd_sim_b_1

the next arc isnt out in that form till november, but i think you can just ask at your comic store and they can order the issues you want, at my store i think they generally get some back issuse every month, cause it's like the best selling comic.

as for kennedy, she was by far the best potential (not that that's hard), and was really good for willow, i mean people didn't like tara at first either.

Speak for yourself, I always liked Tara. I think it was the episode that her family came to town that clinched it for me. And who cares if Kennedy's "good for Willow"?! Willow was SO COOL when she was evil! There should be more Dark Willow in the world. Much more. My favourite potential by far was that sweetie ginger one, with the hat? She's so cute! XD

I'm going to town on Wednesday, I'll see if I can't get a hold of "No Future For You". I might hang on until Christmas for the next arc, get it as a present. That way I can spend all my hard-earned cash on other "essentials", such as the next Serenity arc and Buffy boxsets ^.^

Dear CeeGBee,
Just when it could be for once a nice lightish happy ending in sight, i mean it's a musical, it should end on a kiss god knows, i remember this is joss, he always goes for the pain, he like.... gives you a chocolate bar and then kicks you in the groin... or something like that. But it's far better than just getting chocolate bar after chocolate bar and gradually getting obese and sick of all the sweetness, wishing for something more.... than this manufactured crap... wanting something real, not sugar coated, never will there be a day without a kick in the groin with joss, and i'm glad.

Musicals are supposed to end on a high note. 

'Supposed' isn't ever a word joss will listen too, if he had followed it, would there be all the amazing things he's done? he breaks barriers, it's what makes him special.

I watch Monk every afternoon (except the ones when it doesn't come on :() and likewise, the Daily Show and Colbert Report in the evening. I've been trying to catch up on Ugly Betty so I can watch when it starts back up (I'm through with season 1, but season 2 doesn't come out on DVD til September) and I've already seen all of Heroes so far, so I can watch it, too, as soon as the third season starts. Other than that, I don't watch much TV.

Weird Science, it was a mid 90´s show of two nerds-geeks who accidentally created a superhot lady, this show was awsome, i remember, that when i got my first computer i tried to create a woman... i wasn´t able to, i also tried to become a superhero like Freakazoid... i wasn´t able to ... i was 10 years old, if anyone wants to see the intro of weird science here it is:

I did watch the movie and not liked it as much as the serie, i like the new lisa rather than the old lisa, that was a fucking good serie it kinda remind me of The Big Bang Theory, anyone here likes that serie? it´s also about 2 nerds.

With the qualification that I've only watched about 20 minutes of it in total, The Big Bang Theory
could suck so much more than it does.  I really expected it to be as lame as...  well, as lame as
its obvious, ultra-trite premise would suggest...  Gorgeous girl lives across the hall from a group
of socially-incompetent geniuses, hilarity ensues?  Please.  But it didn't seem bad at all.

I like how fast they talk.. the obscure highspeed pop culture references.

Man, the reavers scare me so much! I just watched that Firefly episode - Bushwhacked, is it? - where that guy sees an attack and then like turns into one.  Scared me shitless!
Unfortunately, you must pretend you never saw that, as it contradicts the back-story explaing the origins of the Reavers.
And that bit in Serenity when they're watching the woman's report on Miranda and you can just hear her screaming in the background. SO COOL! XD
This is the truth.  Anything else you hear about the Reavers is an evil lie.




Instead of fucusing on scary Reavers, how about more "real world" sort of scary things...
I like Saffron Bridgette Yolanda that woman...  I suppose if I had anything to steal, she'd be scarier.




Yosafbridge.

I wish he didn't have to change some things for the movie. But it probably makes more sense to people who haven't seen the show. Do what you gotta do.

I love Angel. Not as much as Buffy. But there are some things I love. Doesn't make me cry as much though.

I think Mal and Inara would be fine together... He may be quite stubborn, and she may be quite forceful, but they both fold for the other's sake without question.
...and she's gonna jettson her career to accommodate his ego?
Ummmm, no.

...or he's gonna be able to deal with her keeping her job?
Ummmmm, no.  That's already a source of tension, even though he freely admits it's not officially his concern.

Shoe on the other foot:

...she's gonna be cool with working backwater planets so he can keep being Mr. Desperado Smuggler guy?
Not likely.  (...more likely than either of the above, but NOT likely...)

...he's gonna give up the wandering outlaw lifestyle so she can find more suitable clientele?
Why not just shoot him now?

Plus...she'd get killed off.

Then again, I suppose we could learn that both Inara and Shepherd Book are/were secret agents of the Resistance, secretly
plotting the overthrow of the Fed government, and that she actually didn't um, ya know, do it with her clients, rather
that they were all secret spy-contacts.... 

Plus...inara would have to die.

i picked up some more of the comics, my god is it getting interesting, plus kennedy's back  ;D.

Meh, I don't like Kennedy. Say, how easy/hard is it to get the back issues of the comics? Cos I've not been like up to date with them, and I'm pretty sure my local comic store only stocks the current issues. Oooh, and, I got my birthday presents off my dad and step-mum this morning, and I got Those Left Behind! *moshmosh*


well issues 6-10 (no future for you) are in a TPB like 'the long way home' http://www.amazon.co.uk/Buffy-Season-Eight-Vampire-Numbered/dp/159307963X/ref=pd_sim_b_1

the next arc isnt out in that form till november, but i think you can just ask at your comic store and they can order the issues you want, at my store i think they generally get some back issuse every month, cause it's like the best selling comic.

as for kennedy, she was by far the best potential (not that that's hard), and was really good for willow, i mean people didn't like tara at first either.

Speak for yourself, I always liked Tara. I think it was the episode that her family came to town that clinched it for me. And who cares if Kennedy's "good for Willow"?! Willow was SO COOL when she was evil! There should be more Dark Willow in the world. Much more. My favourite potential by far was that sweetie ginger one, with the hat? She's so cute! XD

I'm going to town on Wednesday, I'll see if I can't get a hold of "No Future For You". I might hang on until Christmas for the next arc, get it as a present. That way I can spend all my hard-earned cash on other "essentials", such as the next Serenity arc and Buffy boxsets ^.^

please label your post "SPOILER" if you're going to be mentioning things in the comics. I've only read part 1 of LWH.

Oh, hi...  me again...
So, I'm one of those weird people who actually reads Entertainment Weekly sometimes, and I noticed
something pretty neat a couple weeks ago.  They actually got McCain and Obama to sit down (well, it was
probably over the phone...) and answer, um, entertainment questions:

Quote from: [i]Entertainment Weekly[/i]
First McCain:
Q: Who controls the remote at home, you or Cindy?
J.McC.: Sometimes I win the arm wrestling contest, but 
 foolishly she continues to try to assert her control over the 
 remote.
This is a battle that will continue for a long time. But there are shows we agree on. We like the reruns of Seinfeld. I really
like Curb Your Enthusiasm. I kind of like Dexter, too, although it certainly has a macabre side to it. I'll tell you that
Cindy likes Big Love — I haven't watched it much, but she enjoys that. And I like The Wire a lot, too.
That's a great show.
DEXTER?!?  BIG LOVE?!? 


Quote from: [i]Entertainment Weekly[/i]
Then Obama:
Q: Who controls the remote in your house —you or Michelle?
B.O.: I usually have some clout when it comes to the remote. I'm not home a lot, so Michelle is usually
willing to give it up. The only time I grab for the remote is when a game is on.

Q: So neither of you are fascists when it comes to the remote...
B.O.: If I tell her, ''Sweetie, we've got game 5 of the NBA finals on,'' she's willing to give me a little slack.
Most of the time, though, the TV is on HGTV, and I suffer that silently.

Q:Are there any shows you two argue about?
B.O.: She likes American Idol, her and the girls, in a way that I don't entirely get.

Q: Have you or any member of your family ever voted for an Idol?
B.O.: I think the girls did vote in last year's contest. I don't know who they voted for, but I recall that a
vote was cast. They were very excited about it. [Obama's camp won't comment, but rumor has it that
his daughters, Malia and Sasha, were big David Archuleta fans last season.]

Wait a sec...  I thought Obama was supposed to be the interesting one...

I'm trying to think of a show (or a favourite character from a show) that I love that doesn't remotely fit this description. Nothing.

I've just got into the X Files - like, in the last three weeks - and my GOD how did nobody tell about this before?! This show rules!
There's an episode called "Home"....   Season 4.    :o

...is that "...." and ":o" in a good way?
It's kind of meaningless to describe an X-Files episode as weird, or creepy, or just-plain-sick-yet-fun...
"Home" is all of these. 

In a program with many good episodes, this is one of my favorites.

Oooh! Now I'm intrigued! I'll look it up...

Oh nooooo. No no no no no.

I remember when that episode was first shown.. it was THE topic of conversation at school the next day. All day it was "did you see The X Files last night?" "yes! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!" "I know! ewwwwwwwwww!!"

Heh. Good times.

That episode was a rip off of stuff like The Hills Have Eyes, then again The X Files was a rip off of Kolchak: The Night Stalker which was great.
The best X Files episode was Humbug with The Jim Rose Circus Sideshow

Agreed! although both Toombs episodes were great.... It was a shame that it became just about the alien conspiracy in later series....... still loved it all though, must be due a re-run on TV soon
did you know that UFO sighting went up considerably after the X-Files became popular?


P.S..... If you like the X-Files, go watch Carnivale (May have mentioned it here before)

The Toombs episodes were good. The X Files worked best as individual episodes rather than the muddled alien/smoking man conspiracy episodes. Still it could have been worse, remember the series Ultraviolet? That was so poor!

I know I will get flak for this but I don't like the new Doctor Who. David Tennant makes a good doctor but there is too much kitchen sink CGI & alike in it. Flying Daleks! Lame!
The best doctor was Jon Pertwee, limited budget so the writing had to be top notch.

Damn straight! Everyone knows, things only get really scary when there's that little thing in the back of your head saying, "But it really could happen!" As for what British TV is good at, I think anything involving sarky kitchen-sink humour stuff we pretty much rule at, but otherwise we kinda suck XD

hmm since I put my list up in may, I'll put up some of my fav shows from now-times.

I already said Flapjack..
Avatar-best fucking kids show fo real. It's not fucked up like most kids shows I like, and it's probably one of the only ones. Seriously, it is the most fun you can have without hearing naughty innuendos..(well for the most part)
I've been getting into Will & Grace lately (I have a bad habit of liking shows after the fact), I recently saw the last and then first episode, y'know cause they restarted the syndication. My girlfriend hates it, she sucks.
Jon & Kate plus 8- My girlfriend watches it, so she's got me sucked in. It's kind of nice to see a family on TV that isnt a fucking retard who only has their own show because they have a big ass and a sextape (we're looking at you Seacrest). Pwus dey awe just so adowabul!!1!

Not really a TV show, but has anyone seen those specials about the Duggar family http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duggar and http://www.toomanypeople.org/16kids.html fucking read. I hate these people.

And documentaries about world war II.

Pssst!  You shouldn't tell people about that WW2 Documentary thing...  They'll think you're
a geek, and not the cool kind.  

It's too late for me; I watch WW2 documentaries and yell at the TV when they use the wrong
stock footage...  "Those aren't Tiger tanks!  They're T-34s!  What a bunch of IDIOTS!"

I coulda posted this under "to my shame"....

Oh, and if you could explain to me why I like Gilmore Girls?  There is nothing in that show...
well, except Lauren Graham, but setting that aside... there's nothing there that I would expect
to appeal to me, but I love the show (especially Paris).

No one should be ashamed of liking 'Gilmore Girls'!

It's one of those shows that you think is shit (I assumed it was) until you actually watch it (which I started to do fairly recently since they started showing it everyday on E4) and realize it's fucking great (took me about a week to come to this conclusion, after which time I began looking into buying DVD boxsets and typing about it on the internet).

I personally LOVE how bookish (Rory is good for book recs) and New Englandy it is (was VERY disappointed to learn that Stars Hollow, CT does not actually exist). And how fast they talk. And Kirk. And Paris. And, yes, I have a crush on Luke from the diner. I like how grumpy and stubbley and coffee-providing he is (plus, GREAT arms.)

It also scores points for some pretty fucking obscure music references (Gulag Orkestar? WHO else on television references Gulag Orkestar and assumes the audience knows what that is?). And having Grant Lee Phillips in every episode as "the town troubadour". More points for that. Only wish he would do some Shiva Burlesque numbers...

All three CSIs (I miss Grissom though. :(), Criminal Minds (probably my fave), NCIS (probably my second fave), The Mentalist (probably my third fave), Without a Trace, Cold Case, Flash Point, Numb3rs, (did I post on this thread already?)...  and if I remember to watch Chuck, but you know, it's a heathen and on NBC.

I watch Scrubs when I remember to watch it on ABC's website. It's on at a time that conflicts with my regular schedule.

and I miss Boston Legal with an undying passion. I picked up season one on DVD today at Circuit City cause it was 30% off! Box sets are fucking expensive.

They ran season 4 on Hallmark a few months ago, on Sunday nights, only now they've started all over again. Finished 1 a while ago, and are now cracking on with 2. They used to play nothing but 3... It's weird, my comprehension of the whole show is all over the shop >.< All I really know for certain is that Cuddy is the Queen and Wilson should be King. But not in a Cuddy/Wilson-ship way, obv. That would be weird and gross and only satisfying if at some point House hit Wilson with his cane in a comedic fashion.

Ok, I've gone mad.

I'm noticing this thread is suffering from a severe shortage of love for The Wire.  That needs to be remedied.  Don't be intimidated by it, embrace it and think of it as a novel and not a tv show and you'll fall in love.

Also some other shows I'm passionate about:
Buffy (liked Angel, but never really loved it with the exceptions of a few episodes that I felt were Buffy caliber)
Firefly
The West Wing
Sports Night
Dead Like Me
Wonderfalls
Pushing Daisies
Lost
Alias
Veronica Mars
Arrested Development
How I Met Your Mother

and I could list more but that's enough for now.  You'll notice most of these are no longer around which makes me sad.

I watched every episode of 'Screenwipe' on YouTube last week. (Godbless "xthemusic" and his/her copyright defying uploady skills.)

I've been very into Charlie Brooker lately. Had a dream about him a couple of weeks ago and have been a bit obsessed ever since. Been reading through all his articles on the Guardian website and his books and re-watching 'Nathan Barley'.. following him on Twitter.. the works. I'm beginning to creep myself out.

To be honest, it was a  little forced, and so formulaic  that part of its ongoing plot is the
formulaic nature of murder mysteries...  Still, the leads might develop a proper chemistry,

I don't think that's what I mean...

It does prominently feature N.F. playing...  well, a N.F. character, so for NF fans, it's a definite win.
The young lady playing opposite him is fairly attractive as well, but all of the characters are somewhat
cookie-cutter.

THE LEADS
-The Mystery Writer Who Dabbles In Solving Murders; Wealthy, "Connected" At City Hall

SUPPORTING CAST
-Senior Police Officer Who's Willing To Do Whatever It Takes To Keep "The Higher-Ups" Happy.
  (see: "connected" above)
-The Writer's Glamourous-For-Her-Age Mother

Patterson as The Writer's poker-buddies.  I don't know if that's going to be a regular feature.

I'm not at all certain I could...

Closest I've got to an idea would be to return the Star Trek franchise to TV, but
instead of  following the same bunch of space-folks around each week, to have
one- or two-episode short stories with new and different people.  Lots of guest stars,
up-and-coming writers, opportunity for a wide variety of stories to tell...

Oh, and lest I be thought too critical, I generally like formulaic cop shows.  I like
to figure out  who did it before  Adrian Monk does, or Inspector Linley.  There's a
place for really creative stories and  really good drama,  but there's  also a place
for TV comfort-food...  Castle has great potential, as the secret to shows like that
is all in the execution: the acting, the dialogue, the directing...  To stretch the
food analogy, cop shows are like cheeseburgers: they're all pretty much the same
stuff, but some are soooooo much better than the rest.

Cheeseburgers are gay. Sci-fi is king!

If I had a TV show, apart from the obvious (24hr live broadcast of Ricky Wilson, Kenneth Branagh, Guy Garvey, Lisa Eidelstein, Kim Stoltz, Agyness Deyn, Hugh Laurie, Ana Matronic, Derren Brown, Kate Winslet, Kristen Stewart, Nathan Fillion, Natalia Tena and Isaac Brock fucking in various combinations) I'd do a comedy series following the trials and tribulations of a girl's rugby team. Think it would be shit? Nuh-uh. The characters alone would be enough to keep this baby going. And the great thing is, while I'm obviously drawing on my own experiences, not a thing need be exagerrated - everything really is that fucking ridiculous in the world of girl's rugby.

Though, obv, Celebrity SexCam is my preferred choice.

Quite true.

And the great thing is, while I'm obviously drawing on my own experiences, not a thing need be exagerrated - everything really is that fucking ridiculous in the world of girl's rugby.
That's not necessarily a bad idea.  You're right, I think, that the characters/actors would
have to carry it, 'cuz I just don't think there are enough truly compelling sports-centered
stories that haven't been totally worn out.
Title: Re: Favorite TV shows?
Post by: Indja on March 12, 2009, 07:05:19 AM
That, and there's not actually a lot of sport that goes on in girl's rugby. I think I'd do it like in the first season of it being set up, when we only had about 6 players and spent all our time sort of half-assedly (it's a word...) training and playing matches with other teams who also had about 6 people. We'd sometimes end up travelling like hundreds of miles to meet with four other teams to join up with and play against another four teams that also didn't have enough players. So, actual sport? Not a lot of it. And the characters are what're really fucking interesting.

Aw, man, I really want to make it now!

It's one of the deep, dark truths of the universe, revealed to us throught MTM television:
Guys like Herb are slimy and nobody really likes them, but they sell stuff...  They sell lots
of stuff.  (You think I'm kidding, but keep that in mind next time you're around sales-people who
get paid on commission...  Say, the cellphone store...  It's scary, but the top seller is never the

yea, but Herb didnt really sell anything...he ruined more promotions, and he only had 3 clients...but yea, the world is full of herb's that sell stuff...with much better results though.

I was a fan of the X files at the time, but haven't really watched any of the episodes recently, although we did buy the boxsets so I may start to rewatch when I run out of other things to keep me occupied.

Recently, I can't say I have been that current about TV shows, as I very rarely actually watch TV. Any that I do is generally all cartoon boxsets (Family Guy, American Dad, South Park). The only show I have been watching every week is Dollhouse as I am a big Joss Whedon nerd so have been downloading them as soon as they are shown in the States. I didn't really know what I thought of the show as some eps would be good and some would really not be but now on ep 11 its getting into its stride and is pretty exciting. But of course, the runs nearly over and its most likely going to be cancelled from the ratings. BOO.

[You already know what's coming, don't you?]


Felicia Day was in ep 13, and has said that her episode won't air; it will only be on the DVD
set when it comes out, since FOX is cancelling the show.  Neither Joss W. nor FOX have made
any official comment, but neither has bothered to deny it either.  Also, at least one central
player has taken a full-time part on a different show for next year, so yeah, it's gone.
(On the upside, Alpha has been identified and it's [I won't spoil it]!!!!!

Naturally, there is a "massive fan protest movement" (yawn) to save  the show, which will simply
give Joss some idea  how long  to dangle the DVD set before actually releasing it, and how much
to charge for it.  I'm actually starting to think Joss doesn't actually want his shows to get
renewed, that he'd rather sell a bunch of DVDs, maybe make a movie, then move on to the
next project.

I have read about this elusive 13th ep but I never really understood it. From what I gathered, Joss was originally asked for 13 episodes (12 for the regular US short season run, and 13 for the European Market) but the 13th ep is some kind of post apocalyptic episode with Day and a different emsemble of actors. It seems like it would only turn up as a DVD extra, or if the show ever got picked up by any countries outside of the US. I guess after hearly Joss not completely comment on it and say that although it's not likely the show will be picked up again but there still wasn't the final nails in the coffin made me clutch at straws for the show being renewed. The most I'm hoping for now is a season finale that ties up loose ends and doesn't finish midstory a la tru calling. Ugh.

Oh and I did the stupid thing and looked up the casting for the episodes and totally spoiled the Alpha twist for myself *facepalm*

I haven't had television for over a year so I've been watching DVDs of the following:

Blood Ties seasons 1 and 2.
Sarah Connor Chronicles seasons 1 and 2 (only 2 episodes left to watch). 
Torchwood seasons 1 and 2.
Ghost Squad.
South of Nowhere seasons 1-3.


I loved Dexter and plan to watch season three as soon as it's released.  Haven't watched True Blood and am looking forward to that.

Oh, and I'm slowly making my way through the L Word.  I saw the first four seasons when they were aired.  I'm now halfway through season 2; I'll get to 5 and 6 by the end of summer, I expect.

We have a bunch, but you watch shows starring the same few. 

Could be worse; you could be subjecting yourself to David Caruso (then again, that would mean Emily Procter too,
and she's quite the cutie...) or some of our sitcoms based around guys who look like me (white 40-something, not
exactly slim), but with an implausibly hot wife....

Wait a sec..... Who's on House that's on Buffy or Bones?  ...and except for David Boreanaz, who's on more than
one of those shows?  (Granted, the pool of "guest stars" is sorta limited...  They want people you'll recognize, but
they don't wanna pay anyone really "big name" except during sweeps week...)

Ah, I just meant guesty people, not the main guys - like the mayor of Sunnydale was in Bones, and Warren, Dawn, the delicious Felicia Day, etc, tons of Buffytypes in House - it's fucking weird.

but lol, Wallander is pants. Just like Beck and all those other bad swedish copper flicks xD can't stand em. mainly think it's coz they force feed us with them. Every sunday night, at 9pm, there is either a Beck, Wallander, or some other swedish criminal drama thingiemajig. it's been like that for YEARS, and you're like, how many films can there even BE? And they all use the same actors and shit xD And the acting is always really stiff and unnatural... like they're in a play...

okay, enough rant already :P

did you see TW last night? Oh god I was upset by the end of it, am well glad the next ep is tonight and not a week away. Usually have to wait a good while before any torrents are up though. Kind of makes me wish I was on one of those fancy telly providers that actually had BBC...

Abba is a bit pants as well, but I appreciate what they've done for Swedish music :3

Oooh, Torchwood was so good last night! I was like hiding behind a cushion at the end, I was well scared ^.^ But yeah, I love that they're doing like a week of episodes, it's cool.

See, over here, Wallander is all shiny and new and exciting - they recently did an adaptation of three of the novels with Kenneth Branagh (in time, you'll come to see the status Kenneth Branagh has in these circles.....), which were all amazing, and so everyone's sort of pounced on the books. I really love them, but I can see how shit they could be, you know?

What time is it in UK now anyway? 9pm? Has tonight's episode aired yet? I actually have no idea when the episodes air, I pretty much just wait for someone on my twitter or lj friends-list to post torrent links xD

ah oh well, then I see, haha. I only ever watch it if there's nothing else on, and maybe not even then. I've always like british telly better than swedish though, maybe I should check out the new adaptations :3

Oh and once again that force-fed thing probably applies to Abba as well. I probably would like them better if not every time I say I'm swedish people mention them :P

Oh we've got lots of things going, but probably not very internationally known :P like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XxqGpNRDJk
Ark is one of my fav bands, and I wouldn't even know about DD or Amanda if it weren't for them, which is a bit weird. I've met Ark quite many times through the years, and at a autograph session in 2004, the singer told me and my friends to check out DD. Turn out Ark's manager, who's an american, knows Amandas father. At least that's how I think it was, can't really remember, been so many years...

It's kinda extreme-makeover: archaeology edition...  Their "team of experts" descends upon a suspected
archaological site, and use all their fancy toys (and not-so-fancy trowels, brushes, dustpans, screens...)
to discover really cool shi um, stuff... in three days.  (These things generally take months or even years
to come up with anything at all....)

Also cool that I've met a bunch of the people from the first episode, including one of the regular cast.

OH MY FUCKING GOD!

That's actually made my day. Like, completely! That they could turn Time Team - the Sunday tea-time archaeology show with Tony Robinson, to be watched with your mum and some boiled eggs and soldiers and a pot of tea and some Dundee cake for pudding (Sunday tea-time - it's a thing...) - into something that you'd think was in any way cool! And they do *not* discover "really cool stuff", they discover tiny walls and bits of pot. Actually, Eddie Izzard has a sketch about it, but I can't find it on YouTube because I don't have any headphones or speakers so I can check it's the right video... Should be something like Eddie Izzard Archaeology. He was on Time Team a while ago as well, so Eddie Izzard Time Team should get you some clips of that...

Torchwood. I can't believe they just did that. Unless they do some kind of ridiculous plot twist or something like that tomorrow, this show is now dead to me. I've never liked TW for its plot, because the plots are often quite lame and full of holes, I like it for its characters and the dynamics and all that jazz. And first Tosh and Owen, and now THIS? It's not the way to go, RTD!

it makes me feel a bit cheated. like how lamely Donna was written out of Doctor Who. She deserved a better ending than that.

Well that's clearly no fair...   Granting that there were "indigenous peoples" here about 15000 years ago,
our I.P.'s were substantially behind the technology curve, so there's not much to "find" before your people
arrived 400 years ago...   In England, isn't something only 400 years old probably still under warranty?

Didja notice (assuming you watched it online) that half the people involved in this site are...  Limeys?
Ivor Noel-Hume wrote the book (literally, a whole pile of 'em) on early English settlements around here.

if I'm ever near a tv set, it's usually family guy or scrubs. Star Trek takes the cake muchly, though I can recite most of the episodes and don't really need to watch it. I'll put on music videos if I'm really bored, to see what crap is happening to the music industry.
Otherwise there aren't really any shows around I love.

american archeologists are always horrified by the way we do things over here
typical uk dig site...... looking for pre-roman stuff? then take a JCB and dig a trench though the first 2000 years of history....weve got tonnes of it anyway! we will actively chuck away victorian stuff and mostly ignore medieval stuff unless it is a site with specific historical significance

Ya have to keep in mind that your stratified remains run in steady progression from the "Stone Age"
through to "Modern Times", where ours jump straight from what we like to call the "Woodland" culture,
which is really just a tribal neolithic stage, straight to the Elizabethan clowns who just popped in here,
seeming to expect all the modern conveniences.  There was very little 'permanent' architecture before
the Europeans arrived, nothing to find but what I believe is referred to in some parts as "elf-shot', then
there's a really cool (but also really thin) layer of Jacobean-Englishmen-trying-to-reinvent-everything,
then a lot of stuff that, by British standards, is essentially new construction.

true.... the bulk of American archeology is post 1600s and therefor considered modern trash by us english types....

A question for all you Brits (or anyone else with a good ear...)

A friend of mine acquired a copy of the pilot-episode of "Being Human"... with different performers than in
the later episodes playing the ghost and the vampire...  My question concerns Andrea Riseborough, who
plays Annie in this ep....

Where is that accent from?  It's neat, although occasionally tough to understand.

Puhleeeze! Don't you go associating all us Northerners with Geordie scum ;) That's a very specific Northern accent. There's a LOT of Northern accents.

And, actually, Annie's not got a Geordie accent at all. She sounds more Yorkshire to me.

Ah well...  wherever she's from, I quite enjoy her voice.  (Indja, you're not thinking of the replacement
Annie who's in the regular episodes, are you?)  That's my only major disagreement with the re-casting
between the pilot and the first regular episode.  Nothing wrong with new Annie, mind you.  I just liked
the first one better.

Oh, less than that - there's huge differences between even just towns that seem like they're really close. THE NORTH RULES!

And Cee, I didn't watch the series, I just typed in Being Human Pilot into YouTube and clicked on one that said "Thingy and Whatsit meet Annie" and watched that. She doesn't sound Geordie except maybe when she shouts, but even then I think it's just because she goes a bit shrill.

Well I live in a tiny little village, and the accent changes in the town 6 miles away! So it is closer. I do love the different northern accents though!

It's not a show I watch, but apparently a TLC show called "Making over America with Trinny & Susannah"
will be visiting several shoppes near me (as they are ladies' fashion, lingerie, and hair places, they are not
stores I generally patronise, but the shopping district they're in is a favourite of mine).

So to recap: a show I don't watch, on a channel I don't get, is visiting some stores where I don't shop.
Check it out, Friday 8/21.

Time Team is excellent!
american archeologists are always horrified by the way we do things over here
typical uk dig site...... looking for pre-roman stuff? then take a JCB and dig a trench though the first 2000 years of history....weve got tonnes of it anyway! we will actively chuck away victorian stuff and mostly ignore medieval stuff unless it is a site with specific historical significance
So I went to see if they have videos on Netflix...  or at all...  Nope.

Good news, they don't seem to mind if people trade/torrent recordings...

Mixed-blessing:  the show's been on for many years, so I've got a lot of catching up to do.

I keep up on the version we get here, "Time Team America", but honestly I watched the archaeology
crew at Jamestown up-close and in person, and there's very little to dig up around here that's older
than that.  They ran the "Big Royal Dig" episode of your TT the other night, and I noticed that they
found a flint arrowhead at Buckinham Palace, and guessed it to be thousands of years old...

...around here, that kinda thing is relatively common, 'cuz the locals still considered that "modern"
technology until 350 years ago or so.  I wanna see proper "old" stuff, and it's just in really short
supply here.

I actually prefer the American one (I'm a traitor to my country, I know).  Although, I didn't think it was viewed unfavourably, even when compared with the original?  Whenever I've seen comparisons - whether official reviews or just people chatting - the general consensus always seemed to be that they're both good and it's just personal taste that determines which you like more?

For me, while I can recognise the genius of the original, it was a little bit *too* cringeworthy for my own tastes - I found myself switching channels every few minutes in an "I can't watch!" kind of way.  The US version I laugh out loud at more often.

The good one, or the American one?
I actually prefer the American one (I'm a traitor to my country, I know).  Although, I didn't think it was viewed unfavourably, even when compared with the original?  Whenever I've seen comparisons - whether official reviews or just people chatting - the general consensus always seemed to be that they're both good and it's just personal taste that determines which you like more?

For me, while I can recognise the genius of the original, it was a little bit *too* cringeworthy for my own tastes - I found myself switching channels every few minutes in an "I can't watch!" kind of way.  The US version I laugh out loud at more often.

i like the american one personally. and nice avie breschau.<3

If I were capable of guilt, American Pickers would so be my guilty pleasure. I could actually see myself doing that.

...and AMC's The Walking Dead looks like it's going to be spectacular.  8)

I'm watching way too much TV at the moment. Favourites are:

Ashes to Ashes, Life on Mars, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sherlock, The Mighty Boosh, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Have I Got News for You, Top Gear, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Peep Show, How I Met Your Mother, The Impressions Show, Mock the Week, QI, Outnumbered and any Derren Brown show.

And I would like a new series of each!

For fans of "I have no idea what is going to happen next" sci-fi shows and everybody else, I recommend Orphan Black.

http://www.bbcamerica.com/orphan-black/ (http://www.bbcamerica.com/orphan-black/)

Watch at least the first three episodes to get the full flavor of the show. Tatiana Maslany is brilliant as, um, everybody, but it's really Jordan Gavaris as Felix who is my fave and the heart of the show. Smart, funny, weird & sexy.
