I've just had a scrubs season 3 marathon. Honestly, it never gets old - I'm pretty confident I know the script for most episodes..

Carla and I have rented out Sopranos season 1 as we've never seen any of it before. About half way through and very much enjoying it.

Here fucking here!


Most of the american "sitcoms" paramount show are fucking dreadful.

Two and a half men is pretty ok. can be a bit tediece and dull but there few and far between really.

Best thing to come out of america is south park. By a long long long way. One of the only programs i can think of where its actually got better with time.

i <3 south park (feel free to enter the north yourselfs)

South park did get so much better over time, I totally agree. The first few seasons were meh, but after about 6 onwards it just started to become amazing.
Still my favourite episode of all time is the "Henniferrr Lopez" episode. I remember vividly the first time I watched it I was so stoned and laughed incessantly until I thought I was going to die because I just couldn't breathe.

No way. The best episode is stuck in the closet i think its called. FUCKING. AMAZING. Gotta download it from the t'interweb but is fucking worth it.


John travolter (sp?) fucking wins in it.

Thing is...I watched the stuck in the closet one before I'd actually seen the real trapped in the closet...so I really didn't get it. (That was about 4 years ago or something...)

However, having seen the original trapped in the closet now (about a year or two ago), which, if I'm perfectly honest, was one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen in itself, I might give the sp episode a re-watch. I'm not sure how easy it is to parody something that unintentionally became its own best parody, but I'm sure that the sp guys manage this ok.

But I still stand on the fact that through my personal experience and recollection of how much I laughed and how much of it I remember now, the hennifferrr lopez episode is still the best. It was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen when I first watched it.

Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe.

If you don't watch this, you're probably a dick.

I'd definitely go with Frasier out of anything on Paramount and indeed anything else, ever. Getting the complete box set for Christmas, don't think i'll ever need to watch anything else.

I don't get much time to watch television, but I regularly watch (tanks to the modern miracle of DVR) Hereos. I also watch America's Next Top Model when it's on (my totally trashy tv) and now get into Stylista (more trash). When it's back on, Lost.

I do occasionally catch The Big Bang Theory, which js surprisingly accurate in it's depiction of nerdy science types...plus I want some of the belt buckles worn :)

Oh, and NCAA basketball.

Big Bang Theory is indeed good. I watched the last season of Shipwrecked when it aired, purely because I generally feel like doing nothing on a Sunday and watching attractive women wearing little to nothing seemed like a good idea to me. Especially when they had fights. Ooooh the fights.

Peep Show Series 1-5=best purchase ever, I've watched them all on TV, but watching all the series back again is amazing.
