Some British TV Shows I've Been Watching

Thanks to Netflix and Hulu Plus, I've been watching and enjoying the following shows.

The first, Downton Abbey, everybody has probably seen by now. It took me an episode or two to really get into it, but then I was hooked. Really looking forward to season two, which from what I understand is available on DVD now.

The second, Whites, is a British comedy that I've only watched two or three episodes of so far. It's funny, but not as brillant and hysterical as ...

Spy is one of the funniest British shows I've ever seen (granted, besides The IT Crowd and the original Office, I haven't seen much). All the actors are perfect for their roles, especially the kid, who's like a real-life Stewie from The Family Guy.

Finally, Misfits, is a show a friend of mine told me about awhile back and which I thought sounded okay but then sort of forgot about despite adding the first episode to my queue. Then not too long ago I figured I'd check it out and I can't believe I waited this long. This show is amazing. Truly, it might sound hokey at first -- a group of young delinquents come in possession of super powers during a freak storm -- but the show is very well done. At least, I'm halfway through the second season (or series, as the Brits say), and it's great. But from what I understand my favorite character, Nathan portrayed by Robert Sheehan, leaves after the second season, so I'm hoping they do the departure of his character justice and that his replacement is just as good, if not better.

Anyway, that's some of what I've been watching recently. How about you?
