I take pride in knowing I am not a sheep who gets excited by a poorly written but good looking US drama series. I have seen bits and pieces of a few of the shows I mentioned and I am basing my opinion on what I've seen. I even tried to give a chance to The Newsroom the other day and it was possibly the worst one I've seen so far. Dull and written with a massive agenda.

As for shows I do like I very much enjoy Have I got news for you, Cracker, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Alan Partridge and Louis Theroux documentaries

I've not watched them for any length of time. For example I watched the first two episodes of Lost on DVD and its absolutely awful. It combines the two things I can't stand on a TV show, a complicated plot and an element of Sci Fi. I heard about what happened in the show through my brother who is a fan and its ridiculous to me. I have seen enough of each show that I mentioned to form an opinion on.

Ah, each to their own. I'd never continue watching something if I didn't enjoy it just cos other people did - what on earth would the point of that be? I watched the pilot of Heroes back when everyone was raving about it, didn't take to it, didn't watch it again. Simple as that. The idea of being a sheep is thoroughly depressing and as a tattooed vegan feminist, I like to think I'm not one in general.

Oh absolutely each to their own. The sort of people I was referring to as sheep are the kind of people I used to work with. If they saw a new TV show was coming out with massive hype surrounding it they would instantly be its biggest fan and would expect everyone else to feel the same way. One of them in particular went out of his way to buy the DVD box set of House and Hugh Lauries CD in the same day just on the say so of head sheep.

That's a sheep with more disposable income than me then :) I can watch House but I find it a bit samey. I wouldn't describe myself as a fan. I was entranced by Lost from the very beginning and until the end - hence the tattoo! Same with Mad Men - that show isn't something you just watch, it's like you drink it in. Everything about the production values, the period detail, is perfection.

I have finally got into Peep Show after giving it another go when I had a trial with Netflix and ended up watching all 7 series and now have the boxset. Can't understand why I didn't like it before as it had me laughing so much.

Red Dwarf was good up until the time they brought back Kochanski. Made a complete nonsense of the continuity of plot, which up until then had been a complex and beautiful jewel.

I know! Grimm and Masterchef Australia are all I've actually committed time too.

On a quick aside -
Big Bang Theory Awesomeness.
Sheldon -
"What is the best number?"
Raj -
"5 million, 3 hundred and 18 thousand and 8"

This programme is brilliant.
