    My wife has hooked me into watching Primeval. In between, I'm watching Seinfeld.

    It gets a little better. But how about Star Trek: Deep Space Nine?
    It's my favorite of the bunch, TNG is second.

    I liked Star Trek Voyager better than Deep Space Nine.

    This is a good suggestion, at some point I will watch it I think. (I've already seen most of the Voyager episodes).

    It starts a little slow, but so did TNG. I say give it a chance; it has a much more developed story arc than other Star Trek shows, alongside more standalone episodes like TNG had. Also, the best cast overall.
    First seasons are fine, but from season 4 and onwards, that's when you're in for a great ride and IMO - by far - the best that all Star Trek has to offer. In fact, I may watch this show for a third time some day.
    "In The Pale Moonlight", remember this one... great TV.

    I stumbled on Corner Gas, a Canadian show about a gas station. It's full of dry humor, which I personally find hilarious.

    Currently watching True Detective Season 3. Don't know what to think about it yet. At the moment, it's such a blatant copy of the first season that it almost looks ridiculous at times... Mahershala Ali is great though.

    Two words: Cathy Gale:


    She's the original - and a more complex character than Mrs Peel: acerbic but ethical, with a spiky relationship with Steed (who's still slightly shady). Lots of great episodes, too - particularly Brief for Murder, The Wringer, The Gilded Cage, The Little Wonders, The Nutshell, The Mauritius Penny, Intercrime, Dressed to Kill, The Undertakers, Mandrake, Esprit de Corps.

    For my money, the show was at its best with Honor Blackman, and in Diana Rigg's first b/w season, which produced classics like Too Many Christmas Trees, The Hour That Never Was, The House that Jack Built, Death at Bargain Prices, and, of course, A Touch of Brimstone.

    The Mrs Peel colour episodes are too much style over substance, with simpler plots, and gags replacing wit. They're vying with Batman. The best colour Peel episode is The Joker - a remake of a Blackman episode.

    I watch very little TV made after 1989!

    I'd recommend:

    1950s: The Goon Show (radio); the Quatermass serials

    1960s: The Strange World of Gurney Slade; The Avengers (natch!); Danger Man; The Saint; The Champions; Adam Adamant Lives!; The Forsyte Saga; The Prisoner; The Caesars

    1970s: Monty Python's Flying Circus; The Goodies; Dad's Army; Fawlty Towers; I, Claudius; Ripping Yarns; Sapphire and Steel

    1980s: Blackadder; A Very Peculiar Practice; The New Statesman; the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes; the Joan Hickson Miss Marple;

    1990s: the David Suchet Poirot (very hit and miss after 1995); House of Cards (accept no imitations)

    And "proper" Doctor Who, particularly 1963-80, 1988-89
