    Your Favourite TV series.

    Basicly as the title implies post what your favourite TV show is.

    I'll start;

    Dead Like Me

    Georgia Lass is aloof and emotionally distant from her family and shied away from her life. After dropping out of college, she takes a job at Happy Time Temporary Services. On her lunch break of her first day, she is hit and killed by a toilet seat from the de-orbiting of the Mir space station. She is informed shortly after her death that, rather than moving on to the "great beyond", she will become a grim reaper in the "external influence" division, responsible for reaping souls of people who die in accidents (many of which are of Rube Goldberg-style complexity), suicides and homicides.

    Through the first season, George has trouble adjusting to her circumstances: collecting souls, while holding a day job at Happy Time. By the second season, she has mostly adjusted to her new role, though still has unresolved issues with her life and her afterlife.

    George's family is struggling to deal with her death. Her mother, Joy, is depressed, and visibly repressing it, while Clancy, her father, is cheating on Joy. George's sister, Reggie, acts out — stealing toilet seats from neighbours and school, and hanging them on a tree — before being sent to therapy by Joy. She clings to the belief that George visits her, but is starting to lie to cover this up. At the start of the second season, the family began to break apart as divorce proceedings began.

    Nearly all of the main characters have some form of depression, however, they cope with it in different ways: Mason resorts to alcohol and drugs, Daisy puts on a veneer of perkiness, and Roxy is physically and verbally aggressive. Rube and George are more open about their sadness.


    The 2nd series was never released in UK :cry:

    One of my favorite would be;


    Most episodes feature multiple story lines thematically linked via voice overs by main character and narrator Dr. John Michael "J.D." Dorian, played by Zach Braff. According to Lawrence, "What we decided was, rather than have it be a monotone narration, if it's going to be Zach's voice, we're going to do everything through J.D.'s eyes. It opened up a visual medium that those of us as comedy writers were not used to."[5] The show is shot with a single-camera setup instead of a multiple-camera setup more typical for situation comedies.[5]

    The broad comedy is often counterpointed by more serious scenes, as Lawrence notes: "One of the things we thought early on was [if] we occasionally showed actual patients and actual people dying and things with emotional stakes, working in single camera, that it might be enough to combine with broad comedy."[5]

    At the end of most episodes, J.D. summarizes the story's theme in a sequence of shots that show how it has affected each of the characters. Scrubs has been advertised as "half as long as ER and twice as funny." The series has repeatedly featured guest appearances by movie actors not generally seen on episodic television, such as Colin Farrell, Heather Graham and Brendan Fraser.

    Re: Your Favourite TV series.

    I have no TV liscence. WHOOPEEEEEEE

    Also the signal at this new place sucks anyway. So until I have one...DVDs, what's left over on the recorder's HD, and no TV. I realise now I don't miss it what a waste of time it was.

    Edit: Thought for the day: Everything is a waste of time. What a lovely philosophy. Ofc games are just as pointless, but then again...the whole thing is completely unimportant, although as a species we're doing a good job of making it important for this planet. Pssh. I'm in one of those moods.
