I'll start it out with the new series "Back to Life" that premiered tonight for the first time in the States on Showtime. It's been on TV for several years in the UK.

Excellent show with drama and comedy. Reminds me very much of "Six Feet Under". Extremely well done and you can tell right away this show will build a large following.

IMDB says it's from this year. Or is it a different show?

I read on Wikipedia that Back to Life has been airing on UK tv for at least a few years but it's possible that information could be wrong. Usually Wiki tend to be spot on but anything is possible, and especially with a public site. But I do know that last night it aired for the first time in the States. I'm sure there are a million great comedy and drama shows my wife and I will enjoy in the UK.

I really liked Lodge 49, had 2 seasons on AMC and just finished season 2 last month, thought it was a well written show with good acting. But it was cancelled, so no season 3.

Better Call Saul ranks up high for me as well.

Ooh I like this thread.

Movies: the man who would be king, wild geese, Pan's labyrinth, young frankenstein, the Watchmen.

Tv series: upstart crow, toast of London, anything by David Attenborough, slasher (Netflix)
