    What? No love for Babylon 5: Crusades???

    Okay, It's a bit old now but a prime example of a great show cut down halfway through a series...

    Fitting into the 'not very well known' category - 15 Storeys High

    15 Storeys High - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Stars Shaun Lock and was broadcast on BBC 3 before it was BBC 3, very very dry humour but so funny. It's on DVD and lovefilm etc have it for rent

    I love Family Guy...and haven't noticed any significant drop off
    i just find it less and less funny on average and the repeating of the same joke again and again can get silly (like the run home peter one where he bangs his knee then theres the lois version of the same gag that wasnt that funny to start with.

    Granted there are some good episodes recently but there seems to be more mediocre to poor ones

    Some things everyone should be required to watch!

    West Wing
    Cheers
    Frasier
    Babylon 5

    I also enjoy Drop the Dead Donkey, but as it was topical at the time, some of it has lost it's relevance unless you remember it. Still very funny though

    +1 on West Wing. One of the best TV series I've had the pleasure to watch and Leo's funeral still makes me well up

    It was missing something compared to the original B5. Especially when it hit it's stride during seasons 2-4, some of the best politcal drama ever filmed But yes I got the Crusades boxset and it was stopped just at the moment it was starting to be come very good...

    You're on about the Chelmsford based music festival, right? I saw the first episode and it seemed rushed and missed the point of the 80's original. The original was a good commentery on WWII with the Nazi undertones and plight od the Jews. The remake was Independance day stretched for as long as they could get away with.


    If you want a good DVD boxset then, a blast from the past, Shogun with Richard Chamberlin is well worth a watch and you might learn to speak some Japenesse in the process

    Re: Crusade - there's some scripts floating around the interwebs that show that the series was about to become a lot more interesting.

    I'll throw "Nowhere Man": a war photographer returns to his table at a restaurant to find that his life has been wiped out by a shadowy conspiracy. Only 1 season, but at least they got to a conclusion. "Profit": A Machiavellian young man seeks to take control of a company by any means necessary. Only 1/2 a season, but a good 'un.

    Both were on R1 DVD, though may not be now.

    Not much "new" that I'm really enjoying or would class as "awesome" that hasn't already been mentioned.

    The Trip - BBC2

    Although I have no love for either Steve Coogan, or Rob Brydon, I found it to be a very well acted, and touching portrait of 2 people travelling around. If you could get past Brydon and his impressions every 5 mins!

    +1 for Breaking Bad.

    Again, going for boxsets past, I also enjoyed both Highlander and Quantum Leap.
