Coupling. The British version. It's like extremely posh crack.

Sorry, I just jumped on board! I blasted through the first three series in like three days. I hear they lose Jeff in the fourth series, which is BALLS.

"I would just like to say, I was against the costumes."

"I wasn't!"

"I was also against the dancing."

"I invented this dance!"

Rubbish??? Aw, that's a tragedy! Even though every episode ever produced of that show could fit into one season of Friends, Coupling was quickly becoming one of my favorite sitcoms. Damn Brits with their eye for quality and only making new stuff when they damn well feel like it.

OK, other Netflix recommendations: The Wire. Seriously. I know many, many, MANY people have probably pushed you toward this series, but... they're right. The Wire. Best Goddamn Show In The History of Everything Ever. It takes a little getting into, but give it until episode 9, and if you're not hooked, your veins run ice water.

I LOVE Entourage. HMcH got me into it. So I guess you could say at least one good thing came out of that relationship... :o) Ari kicks ALL ASS.

I'm getting into Heroes too, but slowly.

Also, "The Hills." I know. It's awful.

Good choice with Weeds! I think my top pick for you would be Six Feet Under. And I don't know if you already watch The Office and/or Lost, but Jay and I are huge fans. Jessie and I are currently watching The L Word and loving it!

I need to get into Weeds. Currently loving Battlestar Galactica.

Have you got into Firefly? Also Deadwood. I have the old Dr. Who (Tom Baker) in my Netflix, but watch the new Dr. Who whenever it's on.

British Coupling is brilliant, but I never watched it enough to follow it.
