      Don't forget Brideshead Revisited and Pennies from Heaven.

        Brideshead is another gem!  I actually bought it so I can watch it again and again.  "Jewel in the Crown" was another good one.

        Pennies from Heaven was excellent.  Anything by Dennis Potter is superb.

          The original novels are brilliant. Very deep portrayal of the British Raj. Beautifully written.

          Skepticism of all the elite institutions, not trust, is what required for successful leadership in this era. Digby

    •  Best Series Ever? (3+ / 0-)

      Tough for me.. I'd probably end up choosing Black Adder or Monty Python.

      But outside of those two, I can think of soo many.   The Wire definitely stands out.

    •  I go with the Australian series Underbelly (0+ / 0-)

      The first season about the rise of Carl Williams from flunky to Melbourne's drug king  and his war with the Carlton Crew was epic.  The 2nd season was OK, but the third season about Sydney's Golden Mile and the rise of John Ibrahim, the trials of prostitute Kim Hollingsworth, and the story of Debbie Webb's whose harassment would lead to the exposure and downfall of the New South Wales police force was a great story.
