Life on Mars (BBC1, Tuesdays)

Anyone watch this last night? Great stuff, really back on form. Definitely shows that the BBC are still making some great programming.

Ironically, after having the full Sky package in Switzerland I'm back to 5 analogue channels at the moment

However, my NTL (sorry, Virgin) cable box arrives on Saturday so I'll soon have the digital channels back as well as broadband at home again.

CSI: the original is the best one.
I fully concur!
I looove Grissom. I started watching this show when it 1st aired and never stopped. CSI Miami would be ok if not for David Caruso (sorry DC fans, I just cannot stand the way the guy talks)


I'm hooked on House as well.
and I keep watching for Nip/Tuck to come on late again on SF2 but no luck
I did get the whole series of Six Feet Under and that was the best gift ever.

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

House. I must be able to receive it! It's my second favourite show of all-time. Other shows that I have ensured I got to see up-to-the-minute copies of in the recent past are

Bones
Family Guy
American Dad,

and I hope to be able to continue once I have a home here.

I'd add Doctor Who to that list, but it's more a part of my life than an addiction.

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

House is great. Am also a huge fan of the amazing race. I usually hate reality tv (especially big brother and the ilk) but saw this on hol in Malaysia a few years ago and am now a true addict. No one else in the UK seems to know it exists, not sure if it's on in Switzerland.

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

OMG, I'm a huge TV junkie and CSI fan! Along with Lost and a few others.

Top of my view list at the moment:

CSI (all of them)
Lost
Heroes

Top of my all list:

Sex and the City (but of course)

I've got plenty others on the side that I indulge in off an on, but the view list above keeps be entertained most times.

And yeah, call me scrooge, but I download all of them via torrent (except CSI of course, had to get the original DVDs). Best way to keep up to date and watch them all in a row!

It's definitely on one or more of the satellite packages that you get with Sky, I remember seeing it a few times when flicking through the EPG.

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

House is on five (or was) and afterwards on Hallmark (now).

To all of you Americans - do note that Hugh Laurie is English and was once the Prince of Wales

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

If Top Gear counts as a series, yes. At least I try to make sure I never miss an episode.

Did anyone catch Sunday's one? Watch the repeat or borrow it off of a "mate" if you haven't

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

Top Gear for boys' toys. Personally, I thought last Sunday's was crap - a few minutes of English prat buffonery in each episode is bearable but a full 30mins of it was too much. Silly prats should have gotten shot with their Man Love stunt - now that would have been a laugh.


Other series I always try to catch:
Scrubs
Little Britain
Prison Break
Rescue Me
Supernatural
Desperate Housewives
...and anything that's not in German or Italian

It's one of the funniest things on TV at the moment. Just approach it as an entertainment show with 'car theme' rather than a motoring show.

I wonder was the redneck attack staged? Clearly, a lot of stuff they do is all a set-up but that had the look of something that happened spontaneously.

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

Hi
I'm a new member.
Sounds like there's just guys taking part in this discussion?
Nobody seems to mention
Grey's Anatomy
Desperate Housewifes
Dr. House

And if you're not only talking about new stuff:
Kath and Kim
Coupling

Anyway, consider myself a huge TV Series Junkie, but only on funny/romantic stuff...

Was just surfing the net to find cool new TV series from the UK to get hooked on.
Any suggestions?

I came across this the other day:
Quote:
That bit in our American Holiday Video where we were attacked by the rednecks in the Alabama petrol station: I realise now that I should have seen it coming.

We'd been warned by some American modernists - i.e. Californians - that the southerners wouldn't take kindly to any of our light mockery of the things they hold dear - Bush, heterosexuality, NASCAR, Country and Western, short hair...
But I never really believed they would take it quite that badly.
Click for article

It could have been staged I guess (Would a hick from Alabama call their town a "hick town?), but good entertainment either way.

I also lurk on an overwhemingly American populated forum - seems it didn't go down too well

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

Re: Are you addicted to a TV series?

Current(ish): Dr. Who, Life on Mars, and (since it seems to be allowed) Top Gear.

I nearly cried when they brought Who back a couple of years ago. I don't really like the current guy, but Ecclestone brought an edge to the role that it lost after Jon Pertwee left.

I've seen one episode of this series of LoM, but preferred the first series when you weren't really sure what was going on. And with the testcard girl scaring the wotsits out of me (I guess only Brits of a certain age would understand why, but those scenes were seriously spooky). Having said that, the episode I have seen of this series had some nice psychological twists, so I'll reserve judgement.

Top Gear is, well, as someone already said here I think, probably the funniest thing on TV at the moment. Scripted or not really doesn't matter, it is at times almost side splitting. Not bad for three blokes arseing about. Anyone fancy a caravanning holiday?
