Favourite American or British TV Thread [non-Otaku] (35)

1 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-09-07 21:51 ID:MfHUf/D+

This thread is a tread to discuss the goodness that is American and British TV. TV that doesn't cause people to randomly yell "Kawaii Desu" or "Bakka-chan".

My personal favourites:

I am American, and I waned to discuss non Japanese TV. Just once on this board, can we talk about a gaijin (you know, a nonJapanese person, or a TV show made by them)?

I'm sick of these boards being NOTHING but

> I am American

Well, it might be wise to not use the word 'gaijin' to describe 'them'.
Just start a thread or two focusing on English-Language Television from Western Countries.

  1. Stella- Doesn't show anymore, but one of the single most kickass shows. Very funny.
  2. Attack of the Show- Shut up.

History Channel specials NOT relating to ww2/war/planes.

Sliders was an old show that was pretty cool though I heard it turned to shit a few seasons later.

Once every 3 months they try to debunk the bible. They suck at it. Hillarity ensues. (I lolled at their "statistics" that "proved" that there were decent odds of Jesus being buried in a tomb in some apartment complex. Fuck, I knew better than to try their "statistical mthod" in high school.) Besides that, the "tomb" is literally encased in concrete so no one can go in there. Jeez, that's convienient -- the tomb of Jesus, but you can't go in it ever because it's under somebody's fucking house. Well, History Channel, the Tooth Fairy lives in a cave under my house. That I filled up with concrete. Here are my half assed statistics.

I'm excited about John Larroquette becoming a member of Boston Legal. There's a huge audience of Night Court fans who will also become BL fans, thus BL will get higher ratings. :)

Heroes is my favourite, season 1 was amazing, waiting eagarly for next, prison break was also good

15 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-09-23 18:57 ID:MfHUf/D+


Cool, I didn't know that. I'm hoping for a major Shat/Laroquette feud. That would be so awesome.

I wish I could say I made up the nick, but alas, he calls himself "The Shat". I'll never get it. i'd be insulted to be known as "the Shat", he's making a career of it.

I love "Spaced": By the makers of "Shawn of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz". It's like "FRIENDS", but full of film and videogame references. Pity there's only 2 seasons...

Monty Python's Flying Circus (WHY HAS NOBODY MENTIONED THIS SOONER), The IT Crowd, House, and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.

flying doctors ... the Australian tv show from late 80s is a fav

Fawlty Towers, Blackadder..

i think British comedy is kinda unique in the sense of humour. Luckily I get it because I'm British.

I'm English. Mighty Boosh is alright and nobody has mentioned it yet. I much prefer listening to the radio episodes, much stronger feeling that it was all ad-libbed. Then series 1 and 2 were quite good. Series 3 has gone off a bit though.

31 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-01-01 13:37 ID:bR5Nkr3X

Amazingly, nobody has managed to mention Twin Peaks yet.

I sort of thought series three ended up bashing on Howard too hard. I mean, they always did, but it just seemed meaner and less funny somehow. Also, they rely on the shock of swears too much.

35 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-11 23:04 ID:RwdUEHUq

How did no one mention Arrested Development yet?
