US...nothing I can think of.
UK...mainly sport, plus any films and documentaries, especially historical, that grab me. And I have a weakness for costume drama, especially Jane Austen!! 8)
NO-NO...most modern "drama", especially to do with police or hospitals, fly-on-the-wall stuff/reality TV, politics and current affairs, quiz shows, game shows and the pathetic rubbish that occupies prime time on Saturdays. :thumbdown:

Oh, and I accidentally found the best comedy of all time recently - guy on Price-drop selling very crappy looking watches, "Amazing, amazing high-end watches, right up there with your Rolexes and Omegas for looks and quality...JUST LOOK AT THAT!" He was hilarious! :lol:

Mostly, though, give me a good book and some music!

Family Guy - that's literally about it. Maybe sciene / nature documentaries, watched Horizon the other night about black holes.

Don't have much time for TV, what with E-bay, social networking and, er, this forum :silent:

I use the iplayer to catch up on a few nature and documentary style programmes that interest me. I don't have a television and I haven't got the patience to sit through an entire film without getting bored!

In this establishment, watching "House" is almost a religion! Also like "Modern Family" "Raising Hope" "ER" old episodes of "Antiques Roadshow" anything (pretty much) on the discovery channels.

Also,and here is the truly sad thing, at 9:00p.m. every night (unless something above is on) we watch some cheesy old movie on 315 - 319 normally a horror!

Also like, "Top Gear" though the Christmas special was dire.

Well, if we count some Canadian ones, two and a half men, ice pilots, jet stream, boardwalk empire, gold rush and chasing cars are ones that come to mind I've enjoyed recently.

Basically, if it makes me laugh, involves planes or cars, or gives me ideas on how to discover a fortune, then I'm in!! :lol:

I quite like some US cable shows. Recently Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad have been very good. My all-time favourite, though, is The Wire (includes a lot of British acting talent).
Oh, actually, that Game of Thrones was watchable as an historic civil war drama but I think it will go all magic and rubbish so can't recommend it.

So you're not recommending something on the basis of what you think it might be in the future? Okaaayyyy :-k

Anyway,it's already had 'magic and rubbish' in it as thats what the books are based on....it's supposed to be 'fantasy' not 'historical'. I can recommend it on the basis that it's not a historic civil war drama :)

I think you mean "The Watch Commander" he's on somewhere in the 600s on Sky!

He has a variety of catchphrases "Zoomy Zoom" being one. You just have to remember he's married to the Daughter of the watch company :-)

PS the watches are usually overpriced in comparison to CWL etc

Tend not to watch anything that is done as a series as I work shifts and end up missing a part or two.

Comedy wise I tend to buy the DVD if I like one or two for the above reason. Alan Partridge, Big Bang theory and The IT Crowd are my faves at the mo.

Watch the discovery chanel when watching tv as I like documentaries and even though I know nothing about cars and have no interest when I can i watch Wheeler Dealers (not sure why) and a car (plane, helicopter, trike etc) is born.

And Man Vs Food

Also really like Radio 4 comedies, Bleak Expectations was a classic

I work shifts as well....Sky+ is your friend.
Failing that,as you say,buy the DVD from Amazon and flog it on afterwards....or rent them. I've just bought Sons Of Anarchy on DVD for that exact reason, and got the two series of Sherlock (superb by the way) from my Tesco DVD rental account.
