    TV Shows

    I noticed we have a thread here about Lost, which I agree is a great show. What other TV shows does everyone like? I don't get time to watch much TV at the moment but my favourite recently has been Aussie comedy Kath and Kim. Anybody else?

    Well, I generally liked "frasier" when they made that. Nice kind of humor.
    (I don't watch much TV so there's probably a lot shows I missed)

    I just watch motorsport regularly. Documentaries and a couple of other odd programs I just watch when I can be bothered.

    Re: TV Shows - Allo Allo

    One of the TV-stations here in Denmark are rerunning the British comedyshow 'Allo 'Allo from 1982-92. It's a blast, utterly amusing. My favorite character is the English policeman, Crabtree, incapable of speaking French.

    Re: TV Shows - Allo Allo

    I watch TV a lot during the night (at work ), unfortunally nothing really good is beeing broadcasted. During the day I don`t watch much TV, but when I do I like to watch Keeping up appearances. I used to love watching a British comedyshow called Red dwarf, when I lived in England, but that`s many years ago

    Fraiser is my favourite series, but I also like Keeping up Apperances.
    But in general I feel taht there is too many "pop/mainstream series" at the moment - all of the direct from the US of course

    Just watch Allo Allo for the first time tonight. You are right Thomas it`s very amusing and the policeman is hilarious. I`m definitely gonna watch it from now on. Thanks

    My favorite TV shows at the moment are (in no particular order) are:

    Sopranos
    House
    Property Ladder
    ER
    Seinfeld
    Curb Your Enthusiasm

    The order depends on what's in season.

    Well, I watch tv to relax, so mainly I go for comedies. Seinfeld is very funny in english but dubbed in french, is not. Have enjoyed some Brit-coms, and I like Jeopardy.

    Frasier an awesome show a few years back. Now all they play are re-runs.

    Has anyone ever seen the show M.D. House? Very interesting show if you ever get a chance. It combines intelligent medical drama with sarcasm and humor.

    Unfortunately "House" hasn't arrived at the TV stations here in Denmark - yet, but perhaps it will in year or so...

    Re: TV Shows

    I have never been outside of the US, so I have no idea, but does Denmark get main US channels like ABC, NBC, or Fox? If so, then it would most likely air on your Fox channel. I have a feeling that because of the distance between Denmark and the US, you have your own main channels to watch.

    Re: TV Shows

    I don't know of anyone here in Denmark who gets ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox ect. - the standard layout for cable channels as well as sattelite channels is made up of some 9-10 Danish channels (including local channels for your region), a couple of channels from the countries around us, like Sweden, Norway and Germany (the channel composition varies on where you live in this country - for instance the German channels are in greater numbers the closer you get to Germany) and a few internationalised BBC channels (Prime and World) - a few international versions (I think) of CNN, Discovery, National Geographic Channel, Animal Planet - some sportschannels Eurosport and Viasat sport - and then the "odd" moviechannel like TCM and Hallmark.
    It's of course possible to expand/decrease the number of channels, subscriptionwise. But when it comes to "real US channels" nobody seems to carry it, not even the sattelitechannels we can receive. - Also a channel like the Sci-fi channel which is also aired in the UK is impossible to receive here in Denmark. - The channel makeups and limitations are at times fairly odd, but I hope that with the introduction of higher bandwiths on the internet and the introduction of HDtv - which is also in it's infancy here (HDtvs are starting being marketed but HDtv programs are still in the distant future) - the variety of channels will change due to the easier access.

    Re: TV Shows

    My favourite TV shows are Sopranos, Band of Brothers and Twin Peaks.

    Im currently watching Deadwood, which is dead good (excuse the pun ) if you are a fan of the western genre and I highly recommend it.
