TV these days on the whole seems to be full of boring "Celebs", stupid reality shows and quizzes that a well trained Zoo Gorrilla could answer. Most of the latest sitcoms are pretty horrible too.
However there are a few gems around
These are a few that I liked (from US and UK)
Dark skies (Canadian series --didn't make it outside Canada but great series)
The Invaders -- old US series with Roy Thinnes --still a great series if you can find it any more
Stargate and Stargate Atlantis -- you can still find these on "the fillipino felines" site.
Star trek - The Original series --often available on CBS Action channel
Homeland --- passably OK
Midsomer Murders -- especially the latest series
Judge John Deed - UK series about a Radical High Court Judge who is usually at odds with his Home secretary (interior or justice minister equivalent in some countries)
Strike Back (and Strike back withg a vengeance) UK series
Inspector Lewis (UK series --successor to the excellent Inspector Morse series.
Person of Interest (US)
And just recently a great newish series from the US : Falling Skies.
I've had to get this from an "alternative site" as it's not available where I am nor is it scheduled to be - but with decent speeds for download - no probs./
I'd BUY the DVD's if it were possible but if the only way to get this stuff is via "download" well so be it and I don't feel guilty at all -- I'm happy to PAY for content but why do they try and restrict it -- this is what causes a lot of piracy --and it only takes me around 15 Mins to download the WHOLE season 1 using a WIRELESS connection . !!! Enc screenshot of download speed. Could get it much quicker by using LAN cable but I'm quite happy for this type of speed.
Anyway list your favourites -- there must be some decent AUS, NZ, UK series etc that I've missed.
Happy new year everyone
