Please suggest me some TV DH and I can watch (i-player/ 4OD/ download/ box sets).

We like (and have seen all of)

The WIre
Lost (not actually 'like', but watched!)

Peep Show
Green Wing
The Inbetweeners

More, I'm sure, but can't think right now.

LOL Just answered this,and my message disappeared into oblivion..

Will try again. Would recommend E4s 'Misfits' the secound series is currently running, but series 1 is on Amazon for only 5.99.

Very dry humour, quirky, bit scarey, bit naughty.. very English!

What about 6 Feet Under?

Black Books - very, very funny. I think all the episodes are on 4oD.

Modern Family - we all love this (age from 9 - 49). Fab American sitcom done (sort of) in a docu style.

Also really enjoyed the first two series of Lie to Me, but finding the new one a bit meh.

Thanks, I'll look these up. 'Black Books' is another we've seen and loved, yes.

KurriKurri Sat 27-Nov-10 20:49:07

My (grown up)DS and DD, who both loved the wire are both raving about Misfits at the moment.

KurriKurri Sat 27-Nov-10 20:49:48

Oh apologies Jelly cat has already mentioned that oneblush

Have you tried the West Wing? Truly addictive watching.

CaveMum Sat 27-Nov-10 21:59:43

I second dinky West Wing is the best show of the last 10 years. Cleverly written, funny, touching and supremely intelligent.

If you are looking for comedy try:
Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother
and the hugely underrated (in my opinion) The War at Home, which was sadly scrapped after only a few series.

What about

Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes both brilliant.

joydivisionovengloves Sun 28-Nov-10 16:44:14

The Corner
Generation Kill
The Sopranos
Six Feet Under

Pretty much any series by HBO is worth warching

joydivisionovengloves Sun 28-Nov-10 16:44:38

watching not warching

Nurse Jackie,
Sons of Anarchy,
30 Rock,

Lydwatt Sun 28-Nov-10 18:17:46

i was going to say 'black books' too!

going way back, how about 'northern exposure'?

Lydwatt Sun 28-Nov-10 18:19:44

oh, and 'outnumbered'

CeliaChristmasFate Mon 29-Nov-10 20:15:28

Mad Men, The Mentalist, Castle (kitsch but entertaining!), Medium, Lie to Me.

Raahh Mon 29-Nov-10 20:24:02

'Love Soup' with Tamsin Greig (also in Black Books) is very funny. Quite poignant, as well.First series has longer episodes, but all series good.
and the 'IT Crowd'- vv funny indeed. Definitely one of the best comedies of the last few years, imo. ( after 'Outnumbered', that is)

How about Mad Men?
