    Excellent spot there Noby. I'd never heard of this until last year when I got a loan of the Box set. Good Stuff. Cancelled after 1 series though. As for favs over the last ten years(or so), there's been some excellent stuff, mostly American:
    The Wire
    24 (1st Series - when the idea was fresh)
    Sopranos
    West Wing
    Lost
    Our Friends in The North (Only English effort I can think of)

    Agree with whoever it was hated CSI. Also include things like Law & Order, Cold Case and Bones in that. Too formulaic for me.

    Anyone watch Bodies ever?

    Absolutely fuking brilliantly superb tension-filled drama set in a gynaecology hospital with Keith Allen to add Everest-sized mountains of humour for reprieve. Favourite line has got to be 'gynaecologist at your cervix'; an all-time classic.

    Its second, and mucho malheuresement final, series concluded a few months ago on RTE (formerly BBC) but is available to order on DVD from a store near you.

    The Blue Riband, or, ahem, maybe pink, of hospital dramas.

    Scrubs has been signed for another season by NBC, reverting to prime location on Thursday evenings. Only 18 episodes though (compared with 25 for My Name is Earl and 20 half hour and 5 hour long episodes of the Office )

    Did anyone mention Brotherhood yet?

    They're showing it on channel 6 and it's been good so far. I'd also mention Studio 60 on the sunset strip but it's been cancelled

    Saw the first couple of episodes of that. Had high hopes after the West Wing, (same writers/producers) but I didin't think it was a patch on it. Very disappointing.

    Studio 60 is ok but not a patch on the West Wing - tv show doesn't have the gravitas as President of the US. Lot of well know n actors in Studio 60 plus doesn't look like they skimping on production costs so tv ratings in the US probably don't justify it continuing.

    Got into this big time recently. Great great show. Jeremy Piven as manic agent Ari Gold steals pretty much every scene he's in.

    True. The good thing is there is at least 4 series & RTE just started number two.

    Heroes has taken a while to get going but very good episode on Sci-Fi earlier this week.

    For any of the kids out there the X-Files was great at the start but rubbish after maybe 5 series. Other good oldies include Twin Peaks which I wouldn't mind watching again to see if as watchable as first showing. used to be a few good shows around the X-Files days such as Millennium & Dark Skies.
