Post all your TV viewing and radio / podcast series listening for the year 2011 in this thread.
No partial series allowed, unless it's something that's on-going for more than a year, in which case, you can call all the episodes from one year a series. Mini-series, one-offs, documentaries etc are all welcome, as seperate lists or combined with your main list. Up to you.

Oh, and if you saw / heard part of a series last year, but finished it this year, it belongs in here.

May I suggest that Gram is made a Mod?

I always found the last two threads of these by looking at the thread starter column for someone in green, rather than the thread title, which was lost in the middle of lots of other Top 100s. Making Gram a Mod will save me countless seconds every day!

1. Just William

The only other William adaptation I've seen is the one from 1994, and neither have been a patch on the books.

1. Father Ted, season 3 (And A Christmassy Ted)

The final season is a great improvement upon the first two, with each episode having numerous laughs. The Speed parody was excellent, the episode with Richard Wilson was inspired, the two parter with Bishop Brennan possibly the best episodes of all. The Christmas episode as well, the first bit in the lingerie section was especially good. But still, Father Jack and Mrs Doyle are two of the most irritating characters I've ever seen, yet they always got huge laughs and cheers. Every time Mrs. Doyle fell down during the Christmas episode, I was hoping she wouldn’t get back up.

Althrough it did soft peddle a little in places, and maybe at times seemed more intertested in telling Morecambe's story than Wise's, I found it on the whole to be a polished, sharply written, and beautifully acted piece of drama.

Radio:

01) Radio Shuttleworth: S2  (UK, 2000) - 6.5
A series I started listening to in 2010 and finished today.
Decent enough, and I've heard quite a lot of Shuttleworth stuff now, so it all feels very familar. Guests were Barbara Dickson, Richard Whiteley, Tony Hart, Peter Purves, Katrina Leskanich and Matthew Kelly, some of whom got the joke better than others, it seemed.
In addition, there were spots from a variety of comedians attempting to "Make Mary Merry", and musical comedy guests including Mitch Benn and Bill Bailey.

1. Misfits - series 1
Really enjoyed this one, all the characters were oddly likable (even Nathan) and I enjoyed seeing them grow over the 6 episodes - overall it was just a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to series 2 even though I think I know the big twist.

Fiver are showing Malcolm In The Middle, and it looks like it'll be the entire show on weekdays. It's a show I know very little about (Walter White's in it, I know that much). Is it worth my while getting stuck into another show that'll tie me up for 7 months?

The Guardian Season 2
Kidnap & Ransom. Pretty good mini-series from ITV.
Harry's Arctic Heroes
Harry's Law
Hawaii Five-0
Luther Series 2
The Mentalist Season 3
Murderland
Nikita Season 1. Kind of daft but good fun at the same time
Psych Season 5. More good fun from the lads who are the closest thing to a grown up Scooby Doo you are gonna find.
Rubicon. If you've not seen it, catch it on BBC4 when it comes. It has quality, but struggled to fill its 13 episodes.
Silk
Single-Handed Series 4
Strikeforce: Project Dawn
Suits Season 1
Three Men Go to Venice
Top Chef Season 8
Vera
Wonders of the Universe

The Amazing Race Season 18
The Apprentice Series 8
Breakout Kings
Burn Notice the Fall of Sam Axe
Burn Notice Season 5
Covert Affairs Season 2
Dancing on Ice. About halfway through there was a bust up between Jason and Arlene. The rest I forgot already.
DCI Banks: Aftermath
Downton Abbey. I'm not a big fan of period pieces, but somehow I still expected more of this. Its nicely realised, but I really found it very light.
Expedition Impossible
Got to Dance Series 2
The Guardian Season 3
Human Target Season 2. New addition Janet Montgomery hardly features. Indira Varma's a bit of a distraction. Mark Valley still has the charisma of a potato chip. Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley have less screen time. Still its a fair watch.
Hustle Series 7. Going through the motions and with none of the joie de vivre of previous seasons. You have to wonder if after 7 series they've taken this as far as they can.
In Plain Sight Season 4
Injustice
The Jury
The Killing Season 1
Mad Dogs
Memphis Beat Season 2
NCIS Season 7
Outlaw
Paradox - The only show where God could send glimpses of the future to Tamzin Outhwaite to stop bad things happening
The Reckoning - All right, but all a bit obvious really
Rizzoli and Isles Season 2
Royal Pains Season 3
Scott & Bailey
Spooks Series 10
Top Chef Season 6
Top Chef Just Desserts Season 1
Top Chef Just Desserts Season 2
Top Chef Masters Season 3
Top Gear Series 16
Top Gear Series 17
Zen. I wanted to love as much as I love Italy and detective shows. But how it failed. Zen himself is just so boring and everything around him spills into a reservoir of meh.

One-offs:

01) The Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2010  (UK, 2011) - 6.5
03) David Walliams' Awfully Good TV  (UK, 2011) - 4.0

The former was much the same as usual, a 2-hour long New Year tradition, intermittently funny and fair enough when there's nowt else on.

The latter was medicore, with Walliams adding little to nothing to the standard "look how funny TV used to be" clips show format. It had some moments that you could barely believe happened (not least, the Rap Against Rape thing with Hazel O'Connor in full 80s trouser suit plus some very bad white rappers on the The Late Late Show), and others that just looked incredibly cheap (the K-9 series), but the entertainment value wasn't that high.

The Thick Of It Special (2008) 8/10
This is the one where the parties leader steps down six months before he is suposed to which curses a desprate such for a new cantidate with different things getting in the way. It slow builds and builds, and takes in many supporting characters along the way, I love the inciddental commetary along the way like the debate over cricket, Malcolm "Cricket it's just the english idea of sport, no psyical contact, its just glaring", this leads to a food fight,"Eat the cheese" Brilliant show!

Radio:

02) The Shuttleworths: S4  (6 eps) (UK, 2004) - 5.0
This series continues it's gentle decline for me, outclassed slightly by the funnier and more varied Radio Shuttleworth.
S4 of The Shuttleworths sees John putting up (and putting up with) manager Ken as an unwanted house guest; becoming obsessed with health and safety; getting a new mobile phone; and trying to get the windows painted before Mary comes home from her intermediate Step class on the day of their 25th wedding anniversary. Fewer laughs than the first couple of series, and it felt rather like Fellows was struggling for ideas, especially in the bizarre dream episode, in which Ken disappears Poltergeist-style, into John's new stereo system.

This was the 8th radio series of Fellows' material I've now heard, and there's still a couple more to go...

3. Above Suspicion: Deadly Intent
Ciarαn Hinds is a good actor, but he seems to forget that when in these shows.

That show makes me sad, Ciarαn Hinds deserves better.



03. Sons of Anarchy (Series 1) (2008) (First View) USA
A thoroughly entertaining and engaging series starring Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman as Vice President and President of a motorcycle outlaw club and their dealing, in the town of Charming. It's violent, it's very funny, it has a likeable and talented cast (including Mark Boone Junior, Mark Flanagan, Mitch Pileggi and Dayton Callie) as well as featuring a pretty interesting and at times gripping story thread, plus there's a little mystery thrown in too. It also asks some good questions about loyalty (how far to go and how much to give), family, love, morals etc. I highly recommend it, if only for the moment involving Katey Sagal's matriarch and a skateboard.

Its a good couple of years since I saw season 1 and that scene, knife or blow torch?, and a good few others are still a lot more present in my mind that many of the other programs I've seen in the meantime, mark of a really good show that it had so many stand out moments.

Fiver are showing Malcolm In The Middle, and it looks like it'll be the entire show on weekdays. It's a show I know very little about (Walter White's in it, I know that much). Is it worth my while getting stuck into another show that'll tie me up for 7 months?





Honestly. You put yourself through a 3rd helping of Above Suspicion when you know how poorly we've both marked the last two, and you need to ask?

Malcolm in the Middle is brilliant. By the end you'll be plotting to track down all Emmy voters and scream in their faces to ask why they had to wait for Cranston to be in a drama to give him the awards he deserved. And even with that, it's near impossible to pick a favourite character as you try to work out which is the worst psychopath in the family. Dewey has to be a shoe-in for that.

Put it this way. Better than The Office US.

For an alt viewpoint, Malcolm in the Middle is decent but very easy to give up on because Muniz is an annoying runt. If you want great Cranston comedy then check out his Seinfeld performances.

Ugh,

And the general thing is that there is too much to enjoy apart from Muniz - Dewey, Reese, Francis, Lois, Hal, Craig, Otto, Spangler, grandma Ida - it's very far from a one character show.
