Absolutely. I like that they leave in some of the off-colour remarks that people make. The people are very believable. Are the post couple in the most recent series? I've only seen three episodes, after GollumFarrell recommended it here.

I only watched season two which is full of the push couple so I guess that's when they came into it. Then watching Made in Chelsea is one of the funniest things ever.

At the sight of some Made in Chelsea stars spraying champagne everywhere...
Posh man: "oh I despise that! Such a waste of champagne!"
Posh woman: "it will have been prosecco, dear."

It is just such a cultured thing to say.

There's been seven Scandinavian tv series shown on British channels in recent years - The Killing, Arne Dahl, The Bridge, Those Who Kill, Wallander (Krister Hendrikkson), Wallander (Rolf Lassgard), and Sebastian Bergman. Most are cop shows and range in quality from the very good to the mediocre. There's nothing especially cultured about watching them.

At least another 11 foreign language series from other countries have been aired in the same period.

Of them all, Borgen is the most successful in drawing audiences, getting bigger audiences than even final series of The Killing. The Bridge got a bigger opening audience but Borgen has a higher average overall.

Borgen is a modern political drama about a fictional female Danish prime minister who starts out as an altruistic lefty and slowly starts to learn realpolitik. It's well worth the watch.

Double episodes from 9pm on Saturday on BBC4. This is the final series.

You can tell I'm being informative by the level of information in the post. I'm trying to persuade you to watch it, rather than snigger.

So you were a mixture of the two, an evangelist.

Over the last few days, I watched Derek.

It's the new show from Ricky Gervais. It's not as laugh out loud funny as The Office or Extras, but then it's also not near as cringe-inducing. It's actually a very surprising and gentle comedy drama. There are more emotional moments throughout it than in anything else he's worked on.

Like a lot of people, I judged it on the trailers alone when it was screened on Channel 4. It looked like he was making fun of old people and people with neural disorders. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. Unlike The Office, this show isn't about laughing at people, it's about kindness and generosity.

Give it a go. It's a sweet and heart-warming show. Don't be put off by Gervais' performance of Derek; the more you watch, the more he'll endear himself to you. Karl Pilkington co-stars as a more likable version of himself and the female lead Hannah is absolutely fantastic.

The whole thing is on US Netflix and on the 4OD Youtube. Here's the pilot.

The Trip To Italy. Friday nights at 10pm BBC2. Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon shooting the breeze as they eat their way around restaurants in Italy. Very funny and occasionally poignant.

Yes,loving it,and also loving the deranged(ish) and very funny characters on Goggle box,the Harpo Marx guy who has a hedge for hair and couches in his shorts,communicating only by eye movements is only rivaled by the red scoffing right wing toff who is always plastered,comedy gold.

Been watching Parenthood on US Netflix. Really great show! Lauren Graham is excellent in it. And the grandmother is a hottie.
