    The only TV shows I enjoy watching are House and Scrubs, though due to ... external means, I've seen all episodes of both of them, so I don't actually watch anything other than sport on the telly-box. Sometimes Futurama and Family Guy.
    The one, the only CW Black

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Your interview with Animal from the Muppet Show was hard hitting, yet fair.

    The problem with Columbo was you knew who the murderer was all along. Killed the suspense. Never really watched Ironside, but Quincy was a legend (even ahead of Diagnosis Murder!!)

    To me a good sign of a class show is your willingness to buy it on DVD/Video when it comes out. So on that front i'll have to say

    Blackadder - Surely the greatest british comedy ever. Ok, maybe arguments for Only Fools and Horses, but Blackadder won it for me by its clever twists on history and the quick, dry humour involved.

    Family Guy - How it gets away with it i dunno. Oh, yes i do, every time it gets canceled (ie, every season), peer pressure brings it back

    Phoenix Nights - The sad thing is, towns like that do exist (i'm looking at you Morecambe....)

    Scrubs - Probably the best sitcom of recent years

    Drop the Dead Donkey - Being a political kinda person, always gonna appeal to me. Bitingly topical and funny (and for the large part, written and filmed just days before airing)

    Brass Eye - 6 of the best (and a paedophilic crabs special). Short and sweet. Absolute Gold

    Look Around You - If you never caught this on TV, go buy series one NOW, in the style of the old schools programs, its misinformation at its finest and funniest. Series 2 wasnt as good (was a Tomorrows World parody), but 1 is comical nirvana. I cannot implore how amazing it is, you WILL be crying in parts.


    As you can tell, i'm a comedy man through and through, though my missis did get the DVD of Goodnight Mr Tom last week (was a one off adaption of a childrens book, starring John Thaw), probably the best drama show seen on TV in years

    I'm a bit of a closet soap person really. Blokes rarely admit it, but dispite the protests, actually do watch them when forced..... I find myself reminding female friends of plotlines and characters in Corrie from absolute years ago.... somehow a random conversation in work the other night (about a couple in the shop who looked scarily alike) turned onto the incest plot in Brookside years ago.... none of the girls had a clue what we were on about, but all the blokes remembered it!!! But yeah, Corrie and Emmerdale pass, Eastenders is just boring.

    Honorable mentions have to go to Airport (gotta love the grumpy customers who miss their flights) and How Clean is Your House (man that always makes me feel guilty about the slight mess on my bedroom floor), that Trinny and Susannah make-over thing (they are annoying, but its compulsive viewing!), and i'd like to say wife swap, but thats gone down hill now its all prima donna's wanting 15 minutes of fame.

    Only naming one show was a little frugal on my part, I think - Scrubs, Family Guy and Angel have all come up already, as has The O.C., but I'd also like to throw in something a little left-field.

    There's an American show called The Daily Show With Jon Stewart which is shown on More4 here, and it's fantastic - would usually be a bit too political for me to watch, but the humour in it is just brilliant. He basically just ruthlessly rips it out of the American government for 20 minutes, then does a bit of serious stuff, then starts up with the comedy again. It's a good watch.

    I cant believe I forgot Scrubs!

    The greatest comedy of our generation without a doubt. 5 seasons of complete hilarity.
