Decent British Shows

Postby Taansend » Thu Sep 06, 2018 4:31 am

Of the last 15 years or so. Any recommendations?

I've watched Inbetweeners, Fresh Meat & am currently watching Loaded. Also seen the IT Crowd.

Enjoyed all 3 Broadchurches. And The Five and Safe.

Anything else similar either on Netflix or elsewhere?

Crime or comedy mainly.

Cheers

Peaky Blinders and Line of Duty for starters, are must see series.

Couldn't get into Peaky Blinders. I tried but just didn't work.

I know they all dramas but funny progs, other than the ones you mentioned, are a bit thin on the ground, but if you liked Inbetweeners you may like Fleabag.


Sherlock
Life on Mars
Ripper street
Peaky Blinders
Downton Abbey if you like a bit of costumed totty, although not crime
The Take

I’m currently watching Luther on Netflix

I loved Detectorists. First two series were brilliant.

Not a huge fan of crime dramas, but I do like Peter Mullan, so The Fear, Top of the Lake, and he popped up in Ozark too.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

I enjoyed The Fear. Shows like that would be good.
