I think my new favorite TV show is "The Office"(the American spin-off of the BBC original). I never really tuned in before, but I caught a couple of reruns this summer, and I have to say, it's pretty funny. Characters are clever and well-acted, and a little simmering office romance never hurts any plotline, in my opinion. As a matter of fact, I rented the first 2 seasons on DVD just so I could watch it in full. Anyone else a fan?
I'm also thrilled that "Rescue Me" is back for another season. I can't really explain my fascination with this show, as it's *so* male-oriented, but it's really hilarious. I guess Denis Leary has been doing comedy for so long, he knows what works and what doesn't. It's probably not for everyone, but I'm addicted.
This "Rescue Me" Link is R-rated but Also Worth a Look - Very Funny
Anyone watch "Jericho" this past year? I didn't, but hubby did, and apparently it's back for a 2nd season in the fall thanks to the fans, who rescued it from cancellation. Great story about the power of the people.
What about you? What are your favorite TV shows? Have you discovered anything through reruns or a friend's recommndation?
