I liked Carnivale. I haven't gotten as excited about a show as that ever since the X-Files first came on. Of course, they had to go and cancel it after 2 seasons because 99% of the morons out there couldn't follow the plot

I have just realised that as well as "House MD", "The Wire" also has a British lead (or at least the first series did, no idea now)


What is going on, do you Elmers not have any good actors of your own

Surely there must be union problems or something?

Even when the character is foreign here, we still use (in the main) our own actors. To be fair that is probably because we cannot get any Americans to work for crap pay and put up with our food for 6 months, (stop moaning and eat your black pudding) a la "Band of Brothers", but do they lack a certain sense of adventure also?

Never seen House myself, but hear it's good, and I thought the guy was funny in Black Adder

I like it... but I'm not sure how much longer they can keep it going. Great cast, though. I really like James Callis, Edward Olmos and Mary McDonnell.

Besides that, I watch "House," "Good Eats" and "Boston Legal," which also has a fun cast. But my favorite TV program of the moment is the reincarnated "Doctor Who." (The second season was better than the first, I thought.)

Thread Starter 
This season of The Wire is going to be about inner-city schools. A lot of characters will be returning -- Omar, Bubbles, and Cutty, among them. I don't have HBO so I'm going to have to wait a year to see it.

David Simon will be at Politics & Prose tomorrow night:

That has been must see TV for me for the last 2 years, although I preferred the first series.

Series 3 is in production now, and David Tennant has just signed for series 4.

A more adult spinoff series, "Torchwood" will air soon.


"Are you my Mummy?"

Creepy tv moment of 2005!


Another show I enjoy is "Spooks" ( US title "MI5") Series 5 starts here next week as does the new series of "Extras"
