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.
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.
*Dr. Whoz iz AWESOME because it's DAVID TENNANTZZ! LULZ!!!111ONE!
>>1 Thought i was the only one who still watched Boston Legal.
Heroes is my new favourite show.
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
Cool, I didn't know that. I'm hoping for a major Shat/Laroquette feud. That would be so awesome.
MY WISH IS GRANTED. THE LAROQUETTE FEUD IS ON BITCHES! THEY BET ON A CASE ALREADY!
$50 on Shat, any takeers?
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.
Screw all your cool shows.
Foster's home for imaginary friends.
my vote for best show goes to scrubs
I second Heroes.
I third Scrubs.
>>23 I second The Office. Both British and American versions!
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
so it got a little crappy after kate a geoff got their child YES
but overall its awesome
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.
Amazingly, nobody has managed to mention Twin Peaks yet.
<丶｀Д´>っ-̾̾ Maybe ya'll should get off the couch and go out to read a book.
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.
How did no one mention Arrested Development yet?
