You mean CarnivÓle, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, The Sopranos & Ghost in the shell S.A.C. ?

Did not like Friends and X-files at all. Lost and Heroes has lost it. Good first seasons but not so good now.

Actually The Wire is the best TV series. I forgot that. Buffy is second. Soprano is also very good. Battlestar Galatica was good the first season.

How can you possibly miss out "Dr Who"?

45+ years running (albeit with a few interruptions) and it keeps on getting better and better.

I think you need to have grown up in the UK to really like Dr Who in this fanatical way. It can be fun to watch but it is not so good. And the latest series is only so and so. Some very good episodes like Blink but also many bad ones. Season three now have started good. The new companion is much better know that the avoid they romantical aspect. I really liked the Pompey episode.

Yes, I suspect you're right. It's very much a British "cultural phenomenon". It's something which anyone under the age of about 50 will have grown up with.

Well, we weren't always able to receive BBC and the cost of that many seasons on DVD would simply bankrupt me. Plus my wife would divorce me if I started watching that at myy usual tempo

Since we're now talking UK series, I also liked 'Blake's Seven' (first couple of seasons were great). Looks a bit dated now though

I really like Blake's Seven. Our local science fiction club rewatched all four series recently to introduce some new members to the series. I have probably seen all episodes 4-5 times...

All the Gerry Anderson series were just wonderful - as you say, Thunderbirds, Joe 90, Captain Scarlett, Fireball XL5, etc. I've got most of them on DVD now .

Never got into 'Dr Who' myself.
Liked 'Blake's Seven' (first couple of series), and 'Survivors'.

I was born in the UK and grew up in Canada, but I'd certainly count Dr. Who. Then again I've never been able to get any interest at all in Buffy, Friends or Sopranos.

Nah -- if you lived in one of the US cities where the Public Broadcasting station carried Tom Baker's episodes in the mid-late 1970s and into the 1980s, you could easily become a fanatic. In Tallahassee, 1981, Dr. Who came on each evening around 6pm (I can't remember for sure). My 2-year-old would come running through the house yelling "Doc-tah Hoo! Doc-tah Hoo!" when he heard the opening theme. The only other show to capture his attention was M*A*S*H. Same behavior, except shouting "Helicopters!"
