    - Gimme Gimme Gimme (it's 10 years old but I'm seeing it for the first time atm)
    - Bones (good dialogue, sometimes quirky characters and powerful insights more often than not, although a few too many cringeworthy moments for my liking)
    - Gil Mayo Mysteries (5 years old and seeing it for the third time, but still enjoying it)

    Anyone who hasn't seen it, just make sure you get hold of Sopranos and watch the whole thing through. Then watch The Wire. Then watch Sopranos again :)

    If it's all getting a bit tense, start watching some Entourage.

    Good shout about Arrested Development. If people haven't heard of it the first series is genius.

    If people are curious about a couple of comedies that also aren't that well advertised I'd highly recommend watching some Better Off Ted, which is a good satire of global corporations with a brilliant performance from Portia De Rossi, who is also in Arrested Development.

    A British comedy that I was surprised didn't do better is How Not to Live Your Life. Try and start with the first series, you'll have to get over the fact the female lead is a terrible actress, but the 2nd series is probably the best one.

    One final comedy that you can find on youtube, again with only 6 episodes made (the best comedies are always short series) is Nathan Barley. Satirical look at the culture of cool and with Chris Morris (Brass Eye) and Armando Iannuchi (absolutely everything good ever made) behind it, it's absolutely spot on, but definitely more of a niche appeal. Which actually reminds me, try and find the Armando Iannuchi show, he did something like 8 episodes, each one with a different title such as Morality or Work. Basically him just musing about things, but he is an absolute genius, and probably one of the most influencial and important men in British comedy.

    It's worth saying, that if you don't think either Alan Partridge or Peep Show are funny, you probably won't enjoy most of what I recommended haha :)
