    I thought I would start a thread to discuss some of the mini-series the BBC make every year.

    Its eaiser to talk about these shows in one thread because these shows are ongoing 22 episode season shows but usually 6 episode self contained series.

    Yay, another season of The Hour! I loved that last year and I had heard that it was picked up...and never heard anything after that. I thought it had been dropped or something, so this makes me very happy.

    Also looking forward to The Girl and The Fall. :up:

    I love the trailers they put together for these. Gets me hyped and I usually love at least one show. The one with Bronn and Mr. Darcy looks intriguing.

    Frist episode of Good Cop was great. Pretty dark. The morally grey grim gritty style reminded me of Luther probably because Warren Brown is in both show.

    Manchester set Cop turns vigilante revenge show. Stephen Graham did his typical scary psycho gangster thug which isn't a bad thing because his one of the best actors alive at that type of role.

    First episode of Hunted was great. It was like a cross between Alias and Bourne movie franchise.

    Four episodes in and Hunted has become one of the the most unintentionally hilarious shows people have seen in a while.

    Even the Guardian has been laughing their asses off at this show.

    The show is crazy with its obsession with dairy products, mockney characters, Comedian Doc Brown playing a tough guy, magic super bike skills, people who hate boots and random characters that serve no purpose at all.

    I just started catching up on S2 of The Hour. Two episodes in and I think I already like it better than S1.

    ^^ I can't wait to watch that! I see it the 19th on BBC America.

    I like to watch Top Gear lol. Why? I'm not really sure. I'm just amused by those men I guess.

    EDIT: I just love BBC America. I'm actually watching BBC world news at the moment. I like to if I'm early in the morning like I am right now.

    I think my favourite Top Gear moment ever was Clarkson's snow measuring method :funny:

    Skins was shown on BBC America

    I think Skins is aired on BBC America in the U.S
    I tried watching a bit of the first episode but couldn't get into it.

    I've got it on tivo so I might give it ago and try watching it again

    I think it's been good so far, granted there is a Guy Richie Sherlock Holmes influence....
    I like the main 3 actors and Joseph Gilgun was really good as the villain last night.

    I too really dislike Miranda Hart, the most unfunny comedian ever!
