Some New Shows

Alright, I'm addicted to TV offered online. Absolutely addicted. There are three shows that I love:

1: Better off Ted- Introduced to me by Laura and so worth it. It cracks me up! The dialog, the humor, those ads, everything. It's hilarious! It's like Arrested Development, but without the ... disturbed family.

This is available on Wednesday nights on ABC.

2. Life on Mars (UK): So great. The plot's a little difficult to explain, but the show is easy to follow. It's a great comparison to policing of the 70s and the policing policies of today.

There are two series (seasons) offered through BBC1. Unfortunately it is over. Thought the episodes can be watched online, through youtube.com and through various Asian youtube equivalents.

3. Ashes to Ashes (UK): This is the sequel to Life on Mars, but instead of Sam Tyler being the main character, the main character is Alex Drake (played by the beautiful Keeley Hawes). The plot is basically the same, but with a twist. It's filled with feminism, discrimination of all kinds, and a really creepy clown. Not to mention some great sexual tension.

There is currently only one series of Ashes to Ashes, but the new one is supposed to air 20 April, and I seriously can't wait.
