    You don't wanna miss "Hyperdrive" the science fiction sitcom. Beeing very short (just 12 episodes) it's hilarious to see Nick Frost (from Shawn of the dead) as Spacecommander, with his spaceship shaped like a radio tower, trying to protect Britain's interest in an ever changing galaxy.
    The series show was too wierd for TV so it got cancelled just after season 2, mainly because the crew has sex with aliens, shoots at guests for target pratice, and royally screws up every mission.

    Nikita
    Raising Hope (by the makers of My Name is Earl, totally funny)
    No Ordinary Family
    The Cape
    I was enjoying How To Make It In America but it seems to have stopped production.
    Boardwalk Empire (Stephen Graham as a young Al Capone is brill)
    And if you've never seen House i recommend watching that from series 1

    Happy viewing!

    Dude NCIS is the JAG replacement, its a show for old people and its quite cliche.

    Its boring, the characters are 1 dimensional, tony is the cop macho guy, the Israeli is the sexy assassin, mgee is the classy geek, the lab girl is a super genius with an alternative lifestyle and leeroy gibbs is just the typical all american hero bs. They are way too cliche.

    Anything AMC throws out is awesome, the walking dead and breaking are the best. Breaking bad is probably the single best show ever.

    HBO has good stuff, boardwalk empire has been suggested and its real good, awesome acting, awesome setting, awesome story. I also like curb your enthusiasm which Is not for everyone, I think larry david is pure gold in it.

    Otherwise chuck is good, how I met your mother is aight, big bang is funny, house MD is quickly getting boring, Nikita is good for seeing hot chicks kicking ass, Community is funny and that leaves my biggest secret of them all.

    Greys anatomy, that show is awesome its funny, its impossible and the story lines even if at first you will not admit it will pull you in. Then again I do like to watch it during a wake and bake,

    I'm really into Smallville lately. I'm enjoying that, especially evil Lex Luthor.

    Every time I finally get the chance of watching commercials for 10 minutes why do they always have to put in another 5 minutes of TV series? :thumbdown

    Do what I did and buy a HD-PVR. Never watch TV adds again by just fast forwarding through it all!

    they used to have alot of good shows, but when they had that writers strike it hurt alot of business and now nobody can afford to make good shows and future planed shows where put on hold or cancel before they went to screen, syfy shows used to be good before that, now they suck..bad acting and bad visual effects

    The Walking Dead
    Spartacus: Blood and Sand
    Caprica (Highly under-rated show, loved it)
    The Vampire Diaries (An actual 'good' show about Vampires in a time when we're knee deep in **** like True Blood and Twilight)
    The Sarah Connor Chronicles
    Firefly
    Merlin (BBC)
    Chuck

    You can't go wrong with Top Gear either (The English version that is).

    Some older ones in there, but the trend being that almost every show I enjoy ends up getting canned. As you can see I'm a bit of a sci-fi and fantasy geek.

    Smartcards do not work with an AlphaCrypt CAM in Belgium. As a result, I cannot even use the CI+ slot of my LG TV. :puke2:
