You can watch the whole thing here (legally you crybabies).

I've seen that one before.

Have you seen the "Imagination Land" episodes?

They were so good.

Lucky for you that's not exactly correct, and I would fucking KILL anyone who gave away a show ending like that to me.

Dexter

Dexter is awesome. The opening sequence is perfectly brilliant with all the blood splatter imagery.

Did anyone watch that new A&E show "Breaking Bad"? Its about a high school chemistry teacher who learns he only has a year to live, so he starts manufacturing Meth in order to raise money for his family. They only aired about 6 episodes and I'm not sure if they are planning on making more.


I'd say that "The Riches" is pretty much the best show on tv right now.


We've just had the first series of Dexter in the UK. I agree with you the opening titles were brilliant and so was the show. My favourite episode was the one where Dexter had to investigate his own crime scene.

I hope you got them in the original, and not whatever is left of it when they are censored for broadcast TV.

I don't know the answer to that but I imagine they were uncensored. Some of the scenes were pretty disturbing eg the scene/flash back/ when Dexters family are killed with a chain saw. Mind you, it doesn't take much to freak me out...I still get nightmares after watching Wolf Creek.

And in Europe I hear they don't go crazy over nudity like they do here? Cause Julie benz is hot. Also, she has the sexiest voice ever.

So, when I started this thread, I was using Blockbuster Online, and added some of the recommendations people made. Only problem was that Blockbuster Online sucked ass and would never send me any of them.

Now I'm on Netflix and I've been going through them, especially the British ones since I knew nothing about them. Anyway now I'm up to one that seems interesting after watching the first two episodes, Torchwood. I'm starting to feel like I'm missing out on a ton of stuff, however, since I've never seen Dr. Who.

How much of a difference will that make in my enjoyment of the show? It already seems like one of the main characters is taken directly from Dr. Who.

The only show I can say that I watch on TV is Flight of the Conchords. I have been a fan of them before they even had a show, and think they are hilarious.

Yes, Jack is a spin-off from the revived series. I've rather enjoyed it as well -- not written primarily for kids; interesting ideas. There have been other attempts at spinning off characters over the years, but Torchwood is the best.

If you're a person with a great deal of patience who enjoys watching a story unravel (and anyone who can keep recommending Atlas Shrugged surely fits that requirement!) then you might enjoy Who. Of course, the best bits and homages are best appreciated only by those who have happily watched the whole shebang, from waaaaaay-back, so get your comfy chair ready.


And there is only *one* Doctor...

WHAT.

Never? Gosh. I'm so sorry. I've got most of the old series on DVD, and the first of the new.

It's funny. You 'merrckins get hundreds of channels on your cable televisions, but infrequently do you get something great. The only reason I'm glad that Australia is still connected to Britain is that we get a lot of their TV.

I don't have cable or satellite, so have never seen the show. I do love FotC though. I first heard them back in about '05 I think, playing Business Time on Conan during our meal break at work. I have been thoroughly infatuated with them ever since. Interestingly enough, 90% of the girls I talk to can't stand them, and neither can my little brother. I'm beginning to think there may be a connection there.

Scrubs, Skins, Lost, Top Gear, Doctor Who, Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop. I have all the episodes of Flight of the Conchords, but haven't watched it in a while. It's a great show.
