The Ricky Gervais Show (2010)
This show is pure brilliance. The makers took some of the best extracts out of years of podcasts, and added fantastic animation to vividly bring to life some of Karl Pilkington's most memorable rambling. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it doesn't need to. What matters is that it's never boring.
It's not Ricky Gervais' finest hour, but I found Derek to be a fantastic television show. It's often very entertaining, it can be hilarious, and there's a tremendous amount of heart. In fact, Gervais really goes for the heartstrings at times, and though it feels kinda manipulative, it works. I'll be tuning in for next season.
The Office (UK) (2001)
It didn't blow me away like I thought it would, as the pacing is a bit skewiff at times, but this is a really well-done show. The amusing parts are very funny, and it doesn't shy away from being dark and emotional. In fact, the second season is some of the most poignant stuff that Gervais has ever done.
Life's Too Short (2011)
For the record, I watched a few episodes of this in 2012, but came back this year to watch the rest of the season. Good stuff. I'm fond of midgets, so seeing Warwick Davis headline his own series is great. Plus the celeb cameos and the material involving meetings with Ricky and Steve are pure gold. I enjoyed this show.
Parks and Recreation (2009)
I'd been hearing about this show for a long time, but never got into it until this year. It took me many months, but I worked my way through all first five seasons. I've written a perfectly good review of the series, so go give that a read. Suffice it to say, I enjoyed the show.
The Big Bang Theory (2006)
Another TV show that I knew I had to get into eventually, due to its popularity. I'd heard mixed things about it, but I really enjoyed it. Although the first series is rocky, it gets into an agreeable groove and finds its footing in season 2, and it's been extremely entertaining ever since. Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper is pure brilliance.
Again, I wrote a review of this show, and I suggest you drop by and give it a read. I was overall disappointed, but I see potential in the show. I may watch season 2.
I loved Whose Line when I was a kid. The UK version was okay, but the US version soared. I couldn't get enough of it, and taped as many episodes as I could. Watched them ad nauseum. Seeing a revival was exciting, and though it does lack some of the old magic (Drew Carey's absence is felt), it's a very entertaining show, and the performers are just as good as ever.
Bates Motel (2013)
It's watchable, but not great. Read my review of the pilot.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013)
Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
