    Dude, you ranked Twin Peaks alongside Big Bang Theory :/
    Wait, someone actually consider the fucking Big Bang Theory as one of their favourites of all time?

    Jesus wept. Objectively utter fucking shite.

    Let me check, let me check....

    shit I did as well. Okay, the runners up list is unranked and for the record Twin Peaks is a better show than BBT.

    But two seasons was enough for Twin Peaks, I think it lagged in the second season quite a bit before picking up - bit a fine programme nontheless.

    1. Mr. Bean (please don't laugh...)
    2. Firefly
    3. Curb Your Enthusiasm (Seinfeld is just as good, but I love Larry David!)
    4. Breaking Bad
    5. Dead Like Me (such an underrated gem)

    I also like Ben Elton 'oldie' comedy's (sitcoms) as well as Red Dwarf.

    ... not a big TV fan me. Much prefer a good book!

    British TV is shite outside of comedy shows for the most part.
    So untrue it makes me a little sad ;_;

    They've definitely lost their "cool factor" with this generation though.
    It's so completely untrue

    I've watched sooo many US shows over the last 10 years or so, that I'm genuinely having trouble thinking of British shows that compare to the best they have to offer.
    We have a fantastic and, IMO, unbeatable back catalogue of classic comedy shows, that I can't deny. But other than more recent stuff like Sherlock and Luther, or US joint financed shows like Rome and BOB, I can't think of many 'Top 10 troubling' British Dramas or Sci Fi shows, especially ones that have decent enough story telling to run for 50+ episodes.
    I'd be happy to see a big ole list, as I'm running out of quality US shows. :)

    Absolutely this.

    Yes there is 'some' good British TV but it's very few and far between, and sadly our comedy has completely gone to the dogs as well over the past few years.

    But State side their TV just keeps getting better and better and now that the Streaming companies are getting in on the game we have even more high quality choices.

    I think British TV kinda feel away with the obsession with cheap reality TV shows from all the channels. I know the yanks do it to but they still have quality drama, comedy and Sci-fi to back that up.

    Other than Doctor Who and peep show I really can't think of any British TV I actually enjoy these days that aren't old shows.

    British shows still on and as good as any US one.

    Sherlock
    Luther
    Ripper Street
    Peep Show
    In the Flesh
    Derek
    Broadchurch

    We just suck at sci-fi nowadays.

    My problem with those, as good as most of them are, is that you wait a year for them to come back on and as soon as 3 weeks later they're over again.
    It just doesn't give me the same entertainment that a great 12-24 episode US series can.

    I need to separate 'TV Shows' from 'sitcoms' otherwise I will be procrastinating all day.

    In no particular order...

    The Wire
    Breaking Bad
    Sopranos
    Boardwalk Empire
    House

    Sad to see that there are no UK offerings there :( I'm very much a character based viewer, with the exception of Boardwalk these all made the list because of superbly written characters. Boardwalk is on there because of the wonderful period setting and dialogue.

    My favourite comedies (in no order):

    Arrested Development
    Spaced
    Workaholics
    Trailer Park Boys
    Father Ted

    I enjoyed Ripper Street and The Fall recently but too early to consider them great. The Office I would think is the best.

    @sajasanman it starts off quite cheesy it took me two viewings of the first episode to get into it but trust me it is worth the effort

    Yeah the movies are pretty pony, have you tried elementary I really went into it wanting to hate it but it grew on me a lot only one bit pissed me off to be honest but it's a spoiler
