Indeed
true.

but without hole in the wall, tv burp would lose half of its material.
I've never actually watched Hole in the wall - seriously what a ridiculous concept for a show. However it's made fantastic by TV burp.

Nooo!

Hole in the Wall is such a great programme in it's own right!
I want to see more fatties wearing silver lycra suits jumping breaking Dale's wall and rolling into the water...

TV Burp is good but I don't get the fight bit before the first break so it confuses me :oops:

The best programme on TV has to be Diagnosis Murder.

I don't really watch TV except for in the mornings with breakfast, and there's no way I'm watching GMTV, This Morning or any other morning TV so I normally catch re-runs on Paramount, but these are some of my favourite shows.

Family Guy (loving the new season (8) and can't wait for Something Something Something Dark Side)

Spaced, have watched both seasons over and over again since it aired on TV years back, love it to this day, should they make a season 3? I can't decide, but I think yes.

Scrubs (managed to get seasons 1-6 on DVD for £4 each from a customer looking to trade them in at work a few weeks ago, Blockbuster was gonna give him £4 per season credit, I gave him £4 per season cash. We both won. Also nabbed 2 disc Top Gun off him for a quid, score)
Heroes, really need to catch up with season 3 though, only watched the first 2 epsidoes, have them all downloaded though.

Ed. Haven't watched it in ages but I did love it, if anyone's never seen it it stars the guy who plays JD's brother in Scrubs, he's a lawyer who runs his office from a bowling alley. Best premise ever. I have a massive "Stuckey Bowl" coffee mug :)

Becker, only recently started watching this but it's pretty funny, Ted Danson's an angry doctor, quite similar to Dr. Cox from Scrubs really.

King Of Queens. If only Kevin James was as funny on the big screen as the small.

Knight Rider. Legend.

Baywatch. See above.

Ultimate Force. Ross Kemp playing a British version of Rambo basically, storylines went downhill once they got rid of one of the chief writers who was ex-SAS, but the budget was spent on bigger explosions.

Friends, can't really go wrong, plus it's constantly on so you might as well like it.

Mock The Week. Buzzcocks. 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

YES. You win at life. I fucking love Arthur Stiller in that, one of the best sitcom roles ever.

Also, I'm curious, do you find Carrie hot? I would say she is, but most of my friends say no no no.

Oh truer words have never been spoke, Stiller is amazing in it, have you seen the one where he's trying to get Doug to order from that neighbourhood pizza place "Do-menoes?", oh wait, found it on youtube, one of the best segments ever:

And as far as Carrie goes, how can anyone not find her hot?:

Apart from during the chubby seasons maybe :P

Also, Outnumbered, which is in my opinion the funniest British comedy to come out in quite a while, and it's on BBC, which is quite a shocker. Anyone else watch it? I've only caught 2 episodes from the second season so need to grab the DVD of season 1, the kids are amazing, especially the youngest, Karen, for a girl her age she's absolutely hilarious, Hugh Dennis is also great, this is the first thing i've seen him acting in as I never bothered with My Hero.

My Mum got me into that show. It's fucking ace. The two younger kids are totally improvised which is why their parts are funny.


Shameless iz well good, innit. Totally addicted to it. It's one of these programs that just doesn't become stale. Most likely because there are character changes all the time.

Just watched the first episode of outnumbered series 2 as I kept hearing so much about it, and just read the discussion on here.

Thought it was pretty good, but not amazing. Although the youngest, Karen, is absolutely hilarious.

For improvised comedy give me Curb any day of the week, I cannot get over the sheer brilliance of that show. Larry David is a god amongst men.

Ha, my mum got me into it too. From what I've read all 3 kids parts are mostly improvised, I don't think it is completely though, but either way it works great.

I cannot believe anyone is praising fucking King of Queens. Absolutely god-awful, really pisses me off when Paramount stick a fuckload of this and Everybody Hates Raymond on, another of the worst shows ever produced.
