    1) Dexter (best series ever!)
    2) SmallVille
    3) Big Bang Theory
    4) How I met Your Mother
    5) NCIS

    Breaking Bad is the best show on television. Other good shows include Californication, Weeds, The Walking Dead and Mad Men. I also enjoyed the short lived Rubicon but apparently America didn't.

    • Spooks
    • Sherlock Holmes (new Series)
    • Dr Who (filming in Chepstow today apparently)
    • Merlin (Mandatory Family Viewing)
    • Dirk Gently

    Fiction, top picks in recent times

    • Dexter (superb)
    • Breaking Bad (crystal meth (not crystal MEF))
    • Terriers (much better than expected and great vibe)
    • 24 (great suspense, with absurd decision-making)
    • The Mentalist (light but good entertainment)
    • The Walking Dead (prettty cool; gotta love zombies)
    • House M.D. (one radical, but ingenious, doc)
    • Futurama (funny, extremely funny)
    • Weeds (drugs and family, pretty good)
    • Sons of Anarchy (bikers, corruption, gun trades, drugs, IRA, ...)
    • Medical Investigation (a new twist on medic shows)
    • Testees (low-level Canadian humor; too bad it was cancelled after just one season; jack-* on steroids: two friends set out to take part in a new experiment every week, with disastrous consequences)
    • Rubicon (paper-based intelligence puzzle - midly entertaining)

    Gotta love US TV series.

    Science & Documentary

    • The Universe (a must-see)
    • Sci Fi Science w/ the brilliant Dr. Michio Kaku (equally a must-see)

    • House
    • Lie to Me
    • 24
    • NCIS

  • User profile image

    My take is:

    • Dexter,
    • Burn Notice 
    • The Big Bang Theory
    • Scrubs
    • The Simpsons (any season),
    • SouthPark 
    • Futurama 


    PS: Just realised my list seams a little bit childish

  • User profile image

    1. IT Crowd
    2. Coupling
    3. Larry Sanders
    4. Mad Men
    5. Walking Dead

    I see a lot of Dexter listed, might have to check that one out. Should I start with Season 1?

    Dr Herbie

    Well the standard ones of course:

    I T Crowd
    Big Bang Theory
    Father Ted
    Black Books


    Ultraviolet (which I can't find on-line which is a pity)
    Green Wing (so good I bought them all on DVD)
    Dr Who 

    But more recently:

    The Inbetweeners
    Sherlock Holmes (the new BBC adaptation)
    Dirk Gently (only been one so far, but was very good).
    Last Man/Woman Standing. (Ha! I'll show you extreme sports!)
