I tried getting into Torchwood. I decided to start with Season 3 earlier. I've only watched 2 episodes, but so far I'm just not making a connection.

I actually watched the next episode of S03. And the show just got interesting. Particularly how the politicians are dealing with the transfer of the kids and exempting themselves.

I'm getting a real kick out of it.

I've continued to reminisce and I would like to add "I'm Alan Partridge" to the list...

Only two seasons were made, each with 6 episodes. If you like "Fawlty Towers" and "The Office" (not the dreadful american version), you will probably enjoy the antics of Alan Partridge, as well...

Earlier in the episode Alan tries to steal a traffic cone, but is caught in the act by the police...

Alan Partridge was brilliant.

If that is your style check out "the inbetweeners"

Anyone seen "The Pacific", HBO miniseries? Have started watching it. Not as good as Band of Brothers, which was just stellar on so many levels, but still good.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Great series. Funny and well written. Although I think the characters of the gay couple are somewhat weak because they are such caricatures.

Hey Mike
About The Pacific. You cannot compare the two series at all. Different premise and ideas in the Pacific. I would agree it is not as exciting, not filmed as well, and overall lacking in a few areas. The Pacific is more about the psychological tests of the soldiers during the war. Although a little predictable, the series overall was 7/10. Band of Brothers on the otherhand 10/10.

Good write-up. I could not have said it better myself.

Thanks for reminding me. I remember it premiered when I was living "down under", but I only caught the one episode before continuing my travels.

I've been through Knowing me, knowing you with Alan Partridge (A-ha!) and both seasons of I'm Alan Partridge. Brilliant stuff! Apparently he has made a webseries for Foster's recently, but I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully Alan gets the movie he deserves...

I think Brittish humor is different then American humor. There have been several popular British comedies that have been remade in the US verbatim with the exact British script with American actors, and they have all done poorly in the States. One of these that come to mind was a sitcom named 'Couples'. It got canceled only after a few episodes. The sitcom 'The Office' came from the UK, and has been really popular in the states, but they only used the show's concept, not verbatim scripts from the original. With this approach, I think the strength of that show is based directly on the main actor's (Steve Carell) comedic style. I don't think Ricky Jervais, the main actor in the British series would have been able to carry the show here.
