Is that the Australian show, Farscape?

I would be suprised if it was screened in America, or the UK.

It was a good show.

I liked it a bit, but the times it was on were pathetic.

I remember something called farscape. I assumed it was American but might be wrong.

Yeah, it (Farscape) was made in Australia. It was kind of hard to get into it at first, but once I did, I was hooked! It's too bad they stopped the series.

Sigsfried I never heard of either show you mentioned. It is a pity I think that we can't share the same shows and music between countries. I bet there are a lot of neat shows out there. Sometimes its hard just to come across foriegn music, like "The Streets". They're from the UK, aren't they? I hadn't heard of them until MTV mentioned them. Once I heard them, I really liked them. My favorite song of theirs is "Give me my lighter back".

I don't get into series much. When I was a kid I liked Dr. Quinn, Medecine Woman, and Anne of Green Gables. These are the ones I keep up with now..

That 70's Show
Dead Like Me
Carnivale
Six Feet Under (I don't think I'll get into another season of this one though. I'm sick of how dark and depressing it is all of the time!)

It is a pity about the shows especially without the amount of American shows being shown here yet none of our stuff gets anywhere. Admittedly both Yes Minister and Dad's army are particularly British. Yes minister is set in Whitehall (which is the top goverenment buildings) and showed how Civil servants really run everything, whilst Dad's army is set in WW2 home guard. Other top Sitcom's in Britian can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/sitcom/winner.shtml
there is a short clip for each of the ones voted to be in the british nations favourties. Although Yes minster dosn't come out too well in the clip it is quite good.

lol @ RiMMER. Somehow i guessed that Red Dwarf may have been your favourite :)

At the moment, my top ones are Frasier (Bloody halarious stuff) and i like MASH as well (took me a bit to get into, but once i got the characters down it got a whole lot funnier). What else.. what else...

Red Dwarf was always funny, but we dont get it much over hear anymores. Have to buy it if i wanna watch it.

Sigsfried: Have heard of Dads Army and used to watch Yes Minister until it got taken off. Pretty funny if i remember rightly.

That 70s Show never really interested me. It was OK but nothing spectacular.

Anti-Phix: (Interesting name. Have we got a split personality here, of just someone else :)) Futerama was good (pitty they only made 4 series) and so is MITM.

Has anyone watched Invader Zimm. Pretty funny too.

What about music? Whats everyone into?

Anti-Phix is definatly not Phix. When Anti-Phix turned up Phix went mad pretty much accusing anti-phix of being anyone else mainly Halliberry though. Phix does seem to have dissapeared since then. I think anti-phix won.

I hope I'm not doing this too many times but it keeps disappearing and I apologize to the person who got the personal message.

Yes Minister and Prime Minister
Mapp and Lucia
Poirot
Sherlock Holmes (Brett)
Miss Marple (Joan Hickson and hopefully McEwan)
Lord Wimsey
Cadfael
South Park (kind of spoils the mood that was building)
