Some truly entertaining shows to me at least that you may or may not have heard of. Let me know if you can think of some other gems that i may not have heard of as i love finding new shows.
Misfits - Heroes kind of meets UK chavs
How not to live your life - Top quality British humour
The Walking Dead - Egg from "This Life" in US zombie series, reminds me of "Lost" but with zombies
Peep Show - The don of comedy
The Inbetweeners - Peep show for teens.
The IT Crowd - Need say no more!
Many more cool stuff out there. If you are stuck for a pressie for someone then think of a box set of one of the above.
How not to live your life on BBC3
Bro Town - is a Kiwi home grown cartoon series.
Has some racial and political under tones but even a non native like me found it side splitting in places.
Unfortunately only found in torrents here and as NZ still runs it's backbone on wet string and 3g hard to find...
Misfits - Brilliant! I'd encourage anyone to watch Series 1 Episode 2, it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen!
Excellent list, Dalsoth. I agree with every single one. I would also add the following...
- The Office (US) - Easily as good as the British version (at least from season 2 onwards).
- Fringe - The way John Noble plays two completely different versions of himself in separate universes is simply brilliant.
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace - It's got Matt Berry and Richard Ayoade in it. 'Nuff said.
How not to live your life is absolute rubbish, everything else is fantastic though.
The wire is a show you should watch, can't belive it hasn't had more play in the UK.
Snuff box is a show with matt berry and rich fulcher, brilliant .
Dexter.... nuff said
Warehouse 13, Haven.
I agree with Fringe.
Also would like to add:
Flashforward (Yes, even with it only being 1 series)
The Big Bang Theory (any nerds will find this amusing)
Ice Road Truckers
IRT Deadliest Roads
Okay, maybe other people have different tastes but I'd recommend at least giving them a bash.
