UK TV Suggestions
I grew up loving British television, and now I'm finding I can't get enough.

From a GLP AC suggestion, I got into and LOVE Sherlock, but it will be a while before I can access the new season in the states. I also loved Being Human, but I'm not so into that show now that everyone is leaving.

I've seen some of the more popular older ones: the Office, Coupling, Poirot, Dr Who (new and old), Spaced, Big Train.

I'd also love to watch Him & Her but can't seem to find ANYWHERE I can stream series 1 & 2.

I would love any suggestions for great UK programming available to us in the states (I don't get BBC America), preferably streaming on Netflix or Hulu. I'm more into the comedies and supernatural/sci-fi stuff.

Thanks so much, GLP!

Bummer. Not so much. This is the message I get:

Sorry ...
Unfortunately, your country is not currently supported.

At this time, TVCatchup is available only in the United Kingdom.


I clicked on the link and thought "DAMN. THIS IS PERFECT! But it was not meant to be.

Thanks, though.

Brass eye was another funny piss take of famous people and the crap they will come out with, for a fee, without even checking if it's true.

Cheesy sci-fi would have to Blakes 7, although it is rather old now, god one of the first things that got me interested in sci-fi
