    I have always wondered (esp now that anyone can watch almost any t.v series online) how many american people watch non american t.v shows? most of what i watch on t.v is american but i watch a lot of British (90% of my channels are british)and one or two australian shows as well. so if you (are american and) watch non american shows what are they?

    some of my fav shows are skins (season 1 and 2), glee, vampire diaries, secret diary of a call girl, gossip girl, greek, shameless, and trinity.

    Over the years I've watched British comedies The Young Ones, Little Britain, Are You Being Served, and some others. My favorite will always be Keeping Appearance with Hyacinth Bucket(it's bouquet!) I liked the Canadian shows Red Green Show and Kids In The Hall. I also loved the British reality show Ladette to Lady.

    Was always a fan of BBC America and PBS, often catching the the superior original versions of shows remade for American TV like "Life on Mars" and "The Office," though while I never caught "Till Death Do Us Part" I can't imagine it being any better than the incomparable "All In The Family"!

    Graham Norton
    Absolutely Fabulous
    Apparitions (phenomenal short run series...watch it, if you haven't!!!)

    Have loved and liked lots of non-American TV shows over the years, including lots of adaptations of classic novels. I, Claudius was probably the best of those but there have been plenty of great ones over the year. I don't watch most of the newer ones, but a couple of years ago I did watch and loved Bleak House. And going way, way back, there was The Road to Freedom.

    And for more extended series, there's Fawlty Towers, Absolutely Fabulous, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Kids in the Hall, The League of Gentlemen, Peep Show, The Office, and even things like Cash in the Attic (not something I ever make a point of watching but something I enjoy if I come upon it) and the original Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. I liked Skins in its first season (although I sometime felt rather prurient watching it), but then lost interest. And there was the original Danish series The Kingdom. That was fascinating. I'm sure there are others I'm not thinking of.

    There are some that are very popular but that I've never liked a lot, such as Keeping Up Appearances, Dr. Who, and Are You Being Served?
