I agree about Peter Kay's Britains Got The Pop Factor. I was expecting something far better.
No belly laughs, just wry smiles. He portrayed reality TV shows to a T but perhaps it was too similar.

"That Peter Kay Thing" will probaly be the best thing he'll ever do. He should follow it up

Auf wiedersehen pet - series 2 and 3. Way inferior to the original series
The Bill - peaked way back with the line-up of Ted Roach, Tosh Lines, Burnside, etc ending in Don Beech murdering Boulton after which the producers had a wholesale clear out.
Frasier - series 8 onwards after Niles and Daphne marry...big mistake, although things started to go wrong once they brought in Daphne's family.

Dave says:
Can't argue about that Ben. If anyone hasn't seen it then it's recommended. It spawned the hugely funny Phoenix Nights. Loved the character leonard should have had a series of his own as well

Regarding Little Britain. I must admit some of it is funny but I feel it's run it's course now. The characters seem to al be one trick ponies. Vicky Pollard wa funny at first but has now become tedious, as have the Laydeez. I stopped watching after series 2.

Have to agree on Babylon 5's fifth season - the epic ongoing storyline of which was completely chucked out because creator JM Straczynski was so sure the show was going to get cancelled after the fourth season he completely rewrote several episodes and essentially binned his epic story-arc, leaving not a lot going on in the last year.

And I haven't seen Spooks Code 9 but the very premise sounds like an insane joke. Hey, its like Spooks, but with good-looking kids in their early twenties, if even that! And they're the one battling terrorists and threats to national security! Hollyspooks! I think the plots of the Sarah Jane Adventures have a bit more credibility. Even the really rubbish ones. And at least that's a kids show...

1. Moonlighting, after they did it.
2. The West Wing, after Aaron Sorkin. Only because the Sorkin era was the most sublime TV of my lifetime... the rest was simply very good.
3. Channel 4, in general, since about 2003.

Chris says:
A Year in Provenace - could have been a lot better
The Rector's wife - rather dry story line
A recent drama featuring Benedict Cumberpatch on the BBC (can anyone tell me the name - it was incomprehensible)

Doctor Who season 24 - this is the one where it all got alittle stupid. The effects were laughable as were the stories. This was the start of the downhill spiral that would lead the the cancellation of the original series.
Babylon 5 season 5 - after the excellent seasons 2, 3 and 4 this was a real dissapointment, though the last few episodes did improve.
The Dead Zone season 6 - alot of the regular cast were hardly in it and the series finalie did not wrap any of the Greg Stilton story arc.

Bad TV Moments:

1) Little Britain USA: absolutely awful, just because The Office worked there doesn't mean everything should be taken over to the US.

2) The IT Crowd: Could have been so much better.

3) Secret Diary Of A Call Girl: God what a joke this was, they might as well had not bothered.

3 BAD TV DVD Transfers:

1) Becker: There are no extras or any deleted scenes
2) King Of Queens: Again, badly transferred, no extras and rushed in the US
3) King Of The Hill: They've stopped abruptly at series 5, so that means we're probably not going to see the other half on DVD, which really gets on my nerves.

Red Dwarf (series 7 and 8 were not funny)
Little Britain USA (only watched one clip and got on my nerves and not funny)
New Krypton Factor (we all knew it wasn't going to be the same but it's generally boring)

None of Red Dwarf is funny, over-rated tosh. Keeping Up Appearances is not funny either, that woman is so irritating. And Vicar Of Dibley is just plain boring.
