Don't watch a lot of series, but I have seen a few.

More or less every Simpsons episode ever
Family Guy 1 & 2
Survivor (US reality show) 1, 2, 3, 4 & 19. Currently watching S5 on YouTube.
Prison Break (all series) 2nd series was my favourite, followed by the 1st, then 4th and 3rd.
Lost - currently on 2nd series, absolutely loving it but as some have mentioned can't really warm to what seems to be the two main characters. Sawyer is phenomenal.
The Inbetweeners - All 3 series plus the movie, an absolute must watch if you're after raw comedy.
An Idiot Abroad - both series
My Name Is Earl - a few episodes here and there, must get the box set

I think that's about it. Have got a long way to go in Lost yet but when that's over I'll probably move on to FNL or Entourage as many have suggested.

The new drama Homeland that people were talking about on the last page is a great show from what I've seen thus far. Interesting plot, well acted and directed.

Nearing the end of Season 5 on Lost now, Jack and Kate, officially the two worst characters of any show I have ever seen.. I cringe when they are on the screen.. other than that, loving it :D

Watching Prisoner: Cell Block H on DVD.  Good story lines if you take into account it's 30 years old, wobbly sets, the acting is variable and it's fun spotting the future Neighbours/Home & Away stars.

I never got the big hate towards them, they were never my favorite Characters by a long stretch but i didnt hate them.

My personal favorites on the show were Locke, Ben and Desmond.

Desmond! Oh how much I liked that guy.

Sawyer, Lock and Hurley were big favorites as well. I miss Lost so much!

This thread reminded me that I haven't watched any Alcatraz yet, will do soon!

Used to love Sawyers one line stuff... Some of it was great..
Hurley was very likeable.

But Desmond's character just kept me hooked.... So much mystery around him.

Totally agree. And that episode in which he travels in time - possibly the best of all.

The constant I think it was called... Yes one of the best in the whole show.

I am going to get back into my boxset of The Wire.

Season 1 was superb and apparantly it gets better by the series.

I really liked that, once you got familiar with the characters it was such a good watch.

I forget the guy's name from Sheffield (I think) who plays Mcnulty but he also played Fred West in a programme last year and made a superb job of it.

Strange that Stringer Bell, who is a drug lord in the series is English also and plays the part of Luther in the BBC series.

EDIT:  :roll: What a f**king waffle that was. Talk about boring a glass eye to sleep.

Dominic West is the guy who plays Mcnulty.
I actually quite liked Luther as well, but maybe more for him being in it...

Idris Elba is the guy who plays Stringer Bell and Luther.

His first acting job was on the awful Family Affairs on Channel 5!

Dustin Hoffman drama Luck halts filming with horses

US network HBO has agreed to stop filming with horses on Dustin Hoffman drama Luck after a third animal was injured and put down during production.

The American Humane Association (AHA) issued the order, pending a "thorough and comprehensive investigation".

HBO said the horse was being led to a stable by a groom when it reared and fell back, suffering a head injury.

The animal was put down at the track in suburban Arcadia, California, where Luck is filming its second series.

Although the AHA - which oversees Hollywood productions - noted the accident did not occur during filming or racing, it issued the demand "that all production involving horses shut down".

On Tuesday, California Horse Racing Board vet Dr Gary Beck said he had just examined the horse as part of routine health and safety procedures before it was to race later in the day.

"The horse was on her way back to the stall when she reared, flipped over backwards, and struck her head on the ground," Dr Beck said in a statement.

A second vet determined that euthanasia was appropriate, he added.

Dr Rick Arthur, medical director of the state racing board, said such injuries occurred in stable areas every year and were more common than thought.

HBO said in a statement that an AHA safety representative was at the track when the accident occurred and "as always, all safety precautions were in place".

It added it was "deeply saddened" by the horse's death and was working with the AHA on its inquiry.

During filming of the first series in 2010 and 2011, two horses were hurt during racing scenes and were subsequently put down.

The AHA called for a production halt at the Santa Anita Racetrack after the second horse's death, and racing resumed in February after new protocols were put in place.

The first two horse deaths drew criticism from animal rights group Peta, which said the safety guidelines were "clearly inadequate" as they failed to prevent the deaths.

On Tuesday, Peta vice-president Kathy Guillermo said: "Three horses have now died and all the evidence we have gathered points to sloppy oversight, the use of unfit, injured horses, and disregard for the treatment of thoroughbreds."

The series, which looks at racing's seedier side, sees Oscar winner Hoffman play a crime kingpin scheming to gain control of a racetrack and introduce casino gambling.

It is currently being shown in the UK on the Sky Atlantic channel.

Anyone watching Touch with Kiefer Sutherland? Watched the first episode yesterday and i quite liked it. Does make you think if things happen for a reason or if it's all a massive coincidence. Will be interesting to see how it goes from here.

I enjoyed the first two episodes or Touch but am not sure if it will become a bit samey in the episodes.
