We all gripe about TV in the US esp BBC America... so if you could choose the line up on BBC america what would it be? top pick for me would be Only Fools and Horses classic comedy... another pick would be Harry Enfield... Hilarious.

What would you want played?

Quite a few of these are in the line up for the "UK Gold" channel on Sky in the UK. I found myself watching it a lot when I was back home a couple weeks ago for a quick visit.

Default Re: If you could choose, what would it be?

I only seem to watch BBC America on Thursdays now.. I love Little Britain, and when there's nothing else on a couple episodes of the Flying Circus are always good.

I love the Young Ones, though I've seen every episode so many times I can litereally quote every line.

I have to say, I know people love it.. but I cannot tolerate the DIY shows. I took about a year of it and now they make me sick to my tummy. I think the worst, in my opinion of course, is House Invaders.. why is it that every room they do is beige?

There's a new man in charge of BBCA now, so I'm hoping he might give us some of the shows so many of us have been asking for for years now. And while he's at it, maybe he could put a ban on some of the DIY shows being shown more than a couple of times. Who knows, if some of this actually comes to pass I might actually consider getting the channel again.

Cos it's probably the only colour people have knocking around spare *l*
and it's only meant to be a 20 morning filler rather than like it is over here..
