Go on... one or two each.

For me (currently doing the rounds)

Heaven

The F word - Just love it. Love the way it doesn't try and be anything it clearly isn't, whilst showing off Ramsey in his no nonsense yet amazingly brilliant best.
EDIT: I'd also like to stick Peep show in there, although just finished the series, but still current really.

Hell

A couple. I'd say Big Brother, but i'm not really around people that give a crap about that... but more so, these awful, awful "gameshows" around at the moment. The stupid concepts they have, like remembering song lyrics or whatever...gah, Do.Not.Like.

Now your turn :cool:

Wow, this is a blast from the past.
I'll update for what's around at the moment

Heaven - Gavin & Stacey; I only started watching this when it was well into the second series. I kind of turned my nose up at it for some reason, maybe thinking it was some kind of Two Pints (alright, but not much more). Watched the first episode and couldn't stop :teeth: Christmas special was fantastic. Horne and Corden is yet to be seen, currently at 'alright' status.
Also a mention for Robert Webb on that comic relief dancing thing. Wow, just wow (wasn't expecting that).

Hell - This new wave of crappy gameshows popping up. This also includes ones like eggheads. Dull dull dull. Oh and those really awful sing along ones, where they have to sing the lyrics or something or other. *where's the remote!*

Funny, I've just been watching a clip from the programme when David Mitchell was on, (talking about children's TV presenters now being young) and he reminisced over his childhood saying he got on a lot better with a fun, middle-aged man than younger people....

Anyway,
Heaven: QI, Peep Show, Jonathan Creek, America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, CSI, Criminal Minds, Monk, period dramas, The Simpsons (not the new ones), Spongebob (pre 2005), Mr Meaty (which they don't show anymore :mad: )

Hell:
Everything else Especially Soaps!

Outnumbered - Funniest british comedy in recent memory with great young actors.

Hell:
Big Brother - Started off good then went downhill and never stopped falling

My Super Sweet Sixteen - Rich little ******* who couldnt give a **** about anyone else get a party. Wooo!!!
Jerry springer - What the hell happened. Went from "I cheated on my wife" to "I am sleeping in a tree with a midget".
