well im watching a show called FaceOff. Its on the SCIFI channel and I really like it. Its about costume designers in movies. Like the guys that make Predator or Aliens. Its pretty neat.

...๏̯͡๏)....wow....
You guys are all so angry! If it ain't hawkin' variety or hyukin' variety then pretty much the rest of the shows you all listed is all about pain, infliction, demoralization, desecration and decapitation! I may be a fan of Doctor Who and damn it all if it ain't one of the creepiest ones goin on out there but it's still just a children's show... half the problem here is that american TV really sucks balls at comedy/sci-fi, etcetera, etcetera. May I recommend some shows even though they might not fit into your usual spectrum of comfort?...:

Anything by/with Charlie Brooker: Nathan Barley, Dead Set, How TV Ruined Your Life <(my top pick,5*'s!) etc. etc....
LEXX (rewatched this series last month and it dawned on me that season 4 totally predicted in abstract just about everything going on in the world NOW)
Peep Show
Snuff Box
The IT Crowd
Spike and Mike's Classic and Sick & Twisted animation series
Beavis & Butthead
Doctor Who 2005(but of course!)
The Sarah Jane Adventures
Hyperdrive
Spaced
Danger! 50,000 Volts!
Man to Man with Dean Learner
AD/BC: A Rock Opera
the Quatermass movie series
The Catherine Tate Show

Cool suggestions there. That clip was so funny cos it's so flipping true!
Peep show was really good but I feel it lost it's way a bit in the last series. I might give LEXX a go as I do like Sci-Fi but I hope it's not too dated.  Gonna get Hyperdrive, never heard of it until you mentioned it  :tu:

True Blood wasn't on your list?

I heard it was for teenage angsty middle class emo/goths and nobody watched it apart from them? But maybe I heard that from Family Guy?

Is it vampires right?

Yes, but I am none of the above and I like it - the first couple of seasons anyway, I just think the characters are hilarious and entertaining.

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?

Lexx was mid-90's quality canadian lo/no $i-Fi that stuck with props/fx/puppetry as much as possible trying to stay away from cgi-bluescreens, bringing together a great original story and characters/acting with satirical B-horror panache splashed all over, the first season was basically 4 full length movies before going to standard 45 minute episodes but one thing I can guarantee is that if you don't like episode 1 then dont even bother watching the rest. Look for the unamericanized-AKA-unedited canadian/german versions.
As much as I like Peep Show, I stopped watching it around the middle of season 4. It's funny but it is the same damn thing over and over, Ross-damn it.

Watched all of series 1 yesterday and it is really good. It does not take itself to seriously which is what makes it work so well I think.

LOL you watched the whole season?  Yeah I did that too you always wanna know what the next thing is.  I agree, the characters are like real "characters" Jason Stackhouse just cracks me up as does Tara and Lafayette.

Yeah, was about 12hours solid! Some really cute chicks in it, and that Jason is hilarious, he reminds me of me when I was a young whipper snapper!

Hi,

I watch tv series and enjoy some of them. I'll list what I like and you could maybe suggest some to me:-

Brotherhood.

Sopranos.

American Horror Story.

Prison Break. (series 1, it got progressively more implausable after that)

Walking Dead. (Seems a bit slow this 2nd series)

Sons of Anarchy. (series 1-2.)

Game of Thrones. (I like fighting and naked chicks!)

So anythign similar or you think I might enjoy.

Thanks.
These are a few years old but:
BREAKING BAD
THE UNIT
And a movie called: UNTHINKABLE

CHEERS
