I pretty much watch BBC America exclusively
Being Human (I LOVE Russell Tovey, ever since The History Boys)
Doctor Who (Come on, the Doctor fixing up Captain Jack & Midshipman Frame? I knew I liked the Doctor)
Kill It, Cook It, Eat It (shown on Current TV, not BBCAm)
QI (seriously, look this up on YouTube. Funny show with Stephen Fry)
Cluedo (seen on YouTube) -- Kind of like playing the old Clue VCR game, but being able to ask the characters questions directly. Some big names played the famous Clue characters -- David McCallum (Duckie on NCIS) and Tom Baker (Doctor Who) both played Prof. Plum., Mollie Sugden (Mrs. Slocombe from Are You Being Served?) as Mrs. White, and Joanna Lumley (AbFab) as Mrs. Peacock. Different cast each season, plus the Christmas Special.
The Crystal Maze -- Stunt/physical puzzle game show hosted by RiffRaff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The British Version of The Office -- NBC's version pales in comparison and this really makes you wonder how Steve Carell ever became famous from the NBC show. Ricky Gervais is GOD.
Beautiful People (on Logo in U.S.) -- What's better than tween gay 90s nostalgia? You must watch the Hell's Bells clip on YouTube (they edited it out on Logo). The way Mr. Bell reprimands Jasbinder Sahota is one of the funniest lines ever in the history of television.
My fav's are:
A bit of Fry and Laurie
Top Gear (it's soooooo not about cars)
and Doctor Who.
(in no particular order)
John Bishop's Britain
Nevermind the Buzzcocks
The Mighty Boosh
Graham Norton Show
Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares
As Time Goes By
Keeping Up Appearances
DOCTOR WHO! I also like The IT Crowd though.
- All are fantastic for completely different reasons. But when I make a list of all the shows I watch, these four rank above any of the American shows. Funny how that is.
- Oh, and also because I curious about seeing Benedict Cumberbatch in something else (because how else can I fairly judge his acting?) I started listening to Cabin Pressure, which even though it's a radio program, I would add to this list. Since it's likewise awesome in a completely different way from the previously mentioned ones.
Vicar of Dibley
All Creatures Great and Small (Oldy but a goldy. I always see Peter Davidson as Tristan, not the 5th Doctor)
The IT Crowd
