Ellis likes:

Seinfeld, Frasier, Cheers, Curb Your Enthusiasm...all the classic 'Merican sitcoms.
League Of Gentlemen, Alan Partridge, The Office - any British comedies with a bit of darkness.
BBC Four!
Futurama (better than The Simpsons)
Big Cook Little Cook, Enjy Benjy, any childrens TV that sort of winks at you.

Ellis dislikes:

Soaps.
My Family, My Hero, any 'comedy' on BBC1.
Psychological dramas (always involving a woman who's mentally ill, and a scary child).
Blue Peter (theme tune alone makes me want to cry)
Any program with the word 'celebrity', 'makeover' or 'showdown' in the title.

Ellis loves:

I like:

The Simpsons
Everything soccer-related



I know, I'm quite narrow-minded when it comes to TV. I even don't have one right now :ph34r:

Prison Break?
I don't usually watch those American shows, but my word this programme is really excellent. The quality of writing is top-notch.

I hate Emmerdale with a passion, the actors are truly awful, the plots are garbage and it seems like most of the actors are only employed because they look strange... there are certainly some ugly ones there.

West Wing, Morse, Scrubs, Simpsons, Office, Desperate Housewives.
most people gaze not into the future or the past;they explore neither truth nor lies. they gaze at the TV.

Family Guy, American Dad, The Office (the US version, never seen the original UK version)
My local public television station has been playing some UK programs for the past few months and I just love Fawlty Towers and Posh Nosh. :lol:
Oh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the pain of the strain all over again
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
It has been before
So why can't it be now?
And people who are weaker than you or I
They take what they want from life

I watch TV very infrequently...

I am usually into crime series: CSI, Law and Order, Crossing Jordan, Midsommer Murders.
Aside from these: Six Feet Under is my favourite TV series, I absolutely love it. It's dark and heavy - and funny at the same time, a combination I find irresistible. And I've been watching quite a lot of Queer As Folk as well. Also - Judging Amy, The Guardian, they are not bad at all.

I should add: I passionately hate reality TV. Big Brother, Temptation Island, Extreme Make-Over, ... I can't believe thousands of people actually watch it ; what is society going to become if this voyeuristic shameless TV is the new big thing?! Sure, some of the audience just want to see the women in the shower, but it is very low IMO to spend an hour per day watching some folks in a house with cameras just to see a bare female chest... How long can you go to watch that crap?! :ph34r:

Ooh Ruby, I miss The Guardian, they cancelled the series. I miss my dose of Simon Baker!

There's only one The Office, yes, the UK version.
And speaking of US vs UK versions, Howie Mandell is perfectly suited for Deal or No Deal, US version. I'm going to risk saying the US version of the show is better. :ph34r:
