Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

i.e. British Television

I have watched a bit of British television over the past couple of years, and I find it immensely enjoyable.

There are shows about charmingly miserable people

Peep Show is about two dudes who live together and are miserable
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePejwCWPwwg

Black Books is about three miserable people one of whom is Irish
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaeeCV8eRr4

Spaced is a show about several miserable people
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHc0VDdhXVQ

There are sketch comedy shows made by the people who play miserable people
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMGIbOGu8q0

There are social commentary shows with miserable, angry, sarcastic people
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHun58mz3vI

There are panel shows
I like these because of the back and forth between people

obscure knowledge quiz shows
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsWX8JtQrPU

shows where the panelists attempt to lie convincingly to win points
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=op0pfSiQp88&feature=related

news panel shows
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOujvWAEOkM

and news shows that are less panelly
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLM4-_HS6bo

I don't really watch any British drama shows, so I don't know about those
except Doctor Who, but that's got its own thread

    I watched the british eco-apocalypse movie "No blade of grass" today. It was not terrible but it was bad. Thinking about watching the two seasons of "The Tripods" now.

    You know what's great? Spooks.

    that weird pilot spinoff they did kind of sucked, but the main show is consistently awesome.

    Tam, I like you quite a bit.

    I think it's time I told you: I fell in like with you ages ago

    also I realized I have watched two important British drama shows

    Poirot
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3xqwmRdfAk&feature=feedrec_grec_index

    and Sherlock Holmes
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th-szfFtwys

    and the new modern day Sherlock
    which was unexpectedly good

    I watched the first episode of Doc Martin on Netflix and enjoyed it. I should probably get around to watching more.

    oh yeah
    Doc Martin
    that's also pretty good

    also, I think a lot of comedians working in Britain shine brighter as panelists than they do as stand-ups

    I could see not liking old Dr Who. Because.. I'm not really interested in watching it at all. But new doctor who is pretty great. I quite enjoy it.

    Also BBC Sherlock is fucking fantastic. such a great show.

    BBC nature documentaries are also the best and I own a ton of them on blu-ray.

    Also QI is a really fun show.

    This is a Utube video reconstructing the intro to awesomeness (Ihave all of it on video), but somehow the rest of the world has this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnkF-qOmxro

    It's shocking that there's no footage on the first page in a Utube search, Nor -on the first page- any knowledge of the origin of the tune whatsoever.

    The TV series was fucking awesome and our mothers bought the LP's, because of the main theme composed by Dmitri Shostakovich (1906–1975)

    just wiki this guys life and/or series played by Sam Neill

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.
