If your into comedy I can't reccommend Seinfeld or Black Books highly enough.
I set forth to watch the TV series Fame (I absolutely adored it whan I was a kid, only to discover (to my great disappointment) that is was utterly dire. Just the worst acting I have ever seen. Good dance routines in hilarious outfits but not enough to make me want to watch epidodes 5-10 on the next DVD!!
