Worst ? Take your pick

Strictly Come Dancing
Spendaholics
The Real Hustle
The Tudors
Leave Us Kids Alone
My Big Breasts and Me
Dog Borstal
What Not to Wear

Need I go on. have you evere seen such a heap of crap, and thats just a selection of what your licence money has provided for you during the last three days. If I wanted to waste more time I could go on about the other cannels and daytime TV but what would be the point?

Best; since I started watching in the 1950s there have been a lot of good programmes and to pick one would be v difficult. However, to comply with the topic I offer the Smiley stories with Alec Guinness as George Smiley or Abigail's Party. Proper contemporary drama.

Worst- Jeremy Kyle

Best- Early 80s drama called the Edge of Darkness, still havent seen a British drama that has ever beaten this.

When I said Das Boot earlier I meant the subtitled version as well. I believe it was subsequently repeated with English dubbed over the top and wasn't anything like as good.

Edge of Darkness is the best TV drama ever made.
Best of the current crop has to Deadwood and Rome, both from HBO.

Living in France and without a copy of the Radio Times to hand, when I wrote the above on Friday I had absolutely no idea that both "Smiley's People" and "Abigail's party" would be shown on consecutive nights over the weekend. Someone up ther loves me, only I don't know who.

I couldn't keep up with Beverly's drink rate even for the first half hour; (four gins and tonic), and so I was able to enjoy it once again.
 
Best Currently: House MD, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (written by the same guy who did the West Wing), Top Gear, Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the sister programme, The Colbert Report.

Worst: Big Brother, any Reality TV really, and Soaps.

Who said Top Gear is awful, its just genius!

I also thought Smiley's People was very good.

For those with SKY, "Deadliest Catch" - man against the elements and quotas/deadlines - pure brilliance. Any documentary involving tornados/hurricanes/earthquakes - shows just how insignicant man is against his own environment. Even got her indoors watching some of them instead of the "reality" crap on terrestial TV.
