What television series would you recommend to someone to start from scratch?

For instance, I’ve never watched Lost but I don’t think I could handle 7+ years or whatever it was of shows mainly because I heard the show ended up like X-Files where the creators were kind of winging it.

Any suggestions?

Now Callan is a show I could easily get back into... the acting was quality and Edward Woodward's portrayal was most exellent.

Mum and her new hubby are currently watching reruns of the Onedin Line back in the UK, so who knows, maybe the ABC here might run it again. As I recall, it was a decent seafaring drama, but it has been a long time and a refresh wouldn't go astray, given the high level of tripe being served up as television today. 

As for Press Gang, well I never got into that, though I see your pinup girl, Julia Sawalha, was in it.  For mine, she never got/gets enough airtime in Ab Fab... yeah, I like her, too.  

I saw a few episode of Sandbaggers and I recall quite liking it, but I seem to recall it clashing with something the 1st missus liked to watch... meaning I missed out if I didn't want to miss out.

Some Brit comedies I liked..

Last of the Summer Wine.

It Ain't Half Hot, Mum.

Keeping Up Appearances.

Black Books.

Father Ted.

The IT Crowd.

Shameless.

Only Fools and Horses.

Some Mother's Do 'Ave 'Em.

Blackadder

One Foot n the Grave.

Open All hours.

Porridge.

Peep Show.

Shameless UK.

One Foot in the Grave.

The Worst week of My Life.

There's dozens more but those stick out most.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing Defiance.  I like sci-fi apocalyptic things like this and Revoluion.  Defiance stars Grant Bowler, an Aussie actor who got his big break in an Oz cop show called Blue Heelers... also did some work in NZ on a show called Outrageous Fortune, which is great for a laugh.

You forgot Fawlty Towers!!!!!

How could you?..

I'm not as young as I used to be... also forgot Monty Python and Not the Nine o'Clock News.

Incidentally, the hotel facade used in Fawlty Towers was in Torquay, Devon, about 30 minutes away from where I lived. 

I also forgot another fave Brit comedy I liked.... Never the Twain. 

C.R.A.F.T. disease, you know.

Yep, there's one or two dinos here, me included... it's just a toss up for the eldest.  Given his avatar, DrJBHL would have to be in the running, me thinks.

Old age, it really dawns on you when you realise that you had to change from measuring in cubits to feet and inches... then to metres and centimetres while remembering there's millimetres as well.  Oh it's all so confusing.
