My Autumn of Britcoms: I'm such an easily-distracted bell end

Hey, remember that grandiose plan I concocted earlier to watch a whole slew of Britcoms over the summer? Yeah, it didn't really happen. I mean, I did watch the entire runs of a couple of shows ("Spaced", "The Old Guys", "The Inbetweeners"), but never wrote anything up about them here.

But my marathon viewing of the hilarious aforementioned "The Inbetweeners" over Labor Day renewed my interest in the project (thanks, SBN1!).

So I now proclaim this to be My Autumn of Briticoms*. Now, this may be too lofty a goal, since we're in the midst of college football and the fall TV season, but I'll do my best. If I fall short, you can blame the Buckeyes and the overabundance of quality American programming on Thursday and Sunday nights.

*Which will inevitably phase into My Winter of Britcoms.

I have all thirteen series of TopGear.

If you liked Spaced I recommend "Black Books." Same crew, same super short seasons.

You should get around to watching Peep Show, but if that's too much to handle, try Pulling (they only had 13 episodes.)

spydrz - Those are more for casual viewings.

Kelly - Thanks for the tip. I actually have all of that show's episodes downloaded, but I haven't gotten around to them yet. But I've heard great things.

SBN1 - I'll eventually get to "Peep Show". spydrz just watched the latest episode. To avoid jumping in this late I retreated to my isolation chamber (laptop + headphones). I'll be on the lookout for "Pulling", though.

Pulling was a tough find, especially the 1 hour series finale. I'll put it on a flash drive next time I visit.

Have you seen Coupling? It's like the British version of Friends, with more sex.

SBN1 - Awesome. I have plenty to watch in the meantime. But to whet your appetite for some Richmond, coming to Rock Band next week are 10 Queen songs. Exercise your pipes, my friend.

srah - I know of that show, but never saw it. But I do love how "Friends" beget "Coupling" which beget quickly canceled "Coupling (US)".
