Re: Fans of British television shows...

I really liked Ponderland, but I like Russell Brand anyway. He does occasionally go a bit too weird for my liking, but not on Ponderland, that I found kinda interesting in a strange sort of way

I thought the second series was much weirder - but also much funnier. Its not out on DVD yet (as far as I know) - I hope it will come out by Christmas.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

If it's not out now, I can't see it coming out for christmas to be honest, although that's just my opinion.

I'm currently re-watching all of Red Dwarf, although I think I've already mentioned that

Umm they didn't use time travel (not in the UK version anyway) .... Sam did consider that option but it wasn't what happened. Given what did happen
Spoiler: show
Sam was halucinating whilst in a coma
the premis worked well as Bolly was pointing out the lack of 'reality' from the moment she ended up in 'the 80's'

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I don't think Wab meant specifically travelling through time, more like finding yourself in a different era to your own.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

My point was more that give the actual premise the change of city was not a problem, infact it made total sense imo - any jarring feelings it might have created allow the viewer to better understand how Alex was feeling,

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I understand that, but I also understand wab's comment- the whole team, minus Sam, end up working together in another city- that doesn't tend to happen in the world of UK police...as is my understanding anyway

How far are you?
I tried that before Christmas last year and got as far as the middle of the sixth series - Then I got the West Wing box set for Christmas and that was the end of the that. Must go back and start again.
I preferred Clare Grogan as Kochanski. I was upset when ChloŽ Annett replaced her.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I don't really watch them in order, I've seen them so many times that I can pick it up anywhere. Currently watching series 8, episode "Cassandra"

Do you have each series separately with the extras, or the two boxsets of 4 series each?

We bought each box set seperately so all the extras are there. We just bought each one as it came out about 3 years ago ....or was it longer I can't remember. We got a model Star bug with the 5th series I think.
Originally I just watched the odd episode here and there and some extras. I haven't made it through all the extras yet and the eight series isn't even opened.

What did you think of "Back to Earth"?

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Hmm. It was a bit odd, I was glad to see it back, and I tried my hardest not to be disappointed with it, and I wasn't really, only a little bit with the creator and stuff. I liked it when Lister met Craig Charles though

Yeah, I liked this also - my boyfriend was disgusted. (he is the bigger fan)
I wasn't that disappointed (except with Katerina Bartikovsky showing up - I was glad she disappeared quickly enough). I was happy to see it again also.
I think I might start watching again this weekend.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I didn't like her either. And yes, they are in prison during the whole of series 8 (bar some bits in Back in the Red and Pete-oh and they're on probation in Only the Good...). I've been trying to work out my favourite episodes and series but I can't work out the series

Favourite episode from each series (Bar Back to Earth- cos that's not a full series)

Series 1- Confidence and Paranoia
Series 2- Better than Life (I live just down the road from where the beach scenes were filmed as a random fact )
Series 3- Polymorph
Series 4- Dimension Jump
Series 5- Demons and Angels
Series 6- Emohawk- Polymorph II
Series 7- Epideme
Series 8- Krytie TV

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Oh damn- I forgot about Tikka to Ride- I think that's actually my favourite. Those scenes of Kennedy getting shot were really well done I thought- and I think the explanation that he killed himself is just as plausible as other conspiracy theories, more plausible than some

Re: Fans of British television shows...

And that episode was a reminder that Idlewild is a much better name for an airport than JFK.

Without a doubt. Although Lister explaining to Kennedy that they named the airport after him is pretty sweet.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I bought the box set of Jeeves and Wooster and started watching last night.

I have read some of the P. G. Wodehouse books and vaguely remembered the TV series from when I was younger, but I never anticipated how great the TV series is.

I am a big fan of Fry and Laurie, so I don't know why it took so long for me to get around to watching this series, it embodies everything which is great about their partnership.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes very clever humor.

I LOVE Jeeves and Wooster. Fry and Laurie are prefect for the roles in my opinion

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Some of my favorite shows happen to be from the UK...

Doctor Who (since forever)
Torchwood (great stories and writing)
Robin Hood (Even my wife likes this one)
Red Dwarf (OMG I miss this show)
Monty Python (still watch the reruns)
Are you being served (downright hillarious)
Primeval (missed most of the first season)
Premier League Soccer (Go Chelsea & Tottenham!)

Just sharing... sorry to be chiming in late...
