House has really run out of steam the last series or so. Shame. Breaking Bad didn’t grab me at first, but has just got better and better after I gave it another go. 24 is enjoyable tosh, Sherlock and The Shadow Line amazing British TV, Doctor Who is up and down, but since Eccleston kick started it again I’ve been hooked, sticking with it even when some of the episodes sag because the great ones more than make up for it. And I’m a sucker for a WPC, so… IT Crowd is hammy, but very funny.
Notable duds
Hate to knock anything, but True Blood, Game of Thrones, and Treme just didn’t (haven’t) grabbed me. And Oz – couldn’t do it. Too bleak.

2015-11 Update
Game of Thrones is great
