I also like american version of Eleventh Hour.

Just returning from a UK trip, i am surprised how good "Cold Case"'s format can be if done right. "Waking The Dead" is as good as "Cold Case" is unwillingly funny, which is: "very".

Off the top of my head...

Waking The Dead
Or as it's known at Mineworksfine Towers "Trevor Eve Shouting". He's never really topped Shoestring in my book.

And in a similar vein Mrs Hersworksfinetoo is also quite fond of "Pimp My Minger" (Ten Years Younger), "Frumpy and Faggy Buy a House" (Location, Location, Location) and "Birds Talk Bollocks" (Loose Women). She used to watch "Cockneys" until I pointed out there were only three basic episode formats ie "Shahhhtin'", "Fhaaaaamlee" and "Bruv".

gold, pure gold. Especially the "Birds Talk Bollocks" remark, i've never seen a tv show before where people just talk about mindless crap and try to make it sound like its the most important thing going on in their lives right now.
I would give some +rep but first i must spread the love amongst others.

Jailbait Ford is Dead! Adjusting to pedestrianism.
Peep Show's been back a couple of weeks and is at least as fantabulous as it always was.

That used to air over here on BBCA. I watched it mainly for the cool houses. In the end, I could take or leave Kirstie and Phil.
I have taken Kirstie but I did leave Phil. Make of that what you will.

QI and House I guess.... of things airing now, and I guess One Piece and Naruto Shippuden too but they're quite different =)

While i'm in agreement with One Piece, i've found Bleach to be far more superior to Naruto. Naruto has always seemed childish to me and i've never really been able to get into it.
Aside from that, there are only really 2 shows i would consider to be just as awesome as Top Gear, The Wire and NCIS.

Naruto Shippuden is the 2nd series of Naruto, its a bit more grown up and the story and plot is advanced and it wins over Bleach in that it keeps progressing, I mean you can do a "yo dawg" for bleach something like this:

Yo dawg we heard you liked fillers so we put a filler in your filler so you will never see the end of the hueco mundo arc.

That said.... I watch bleach as well I just don't think it's as good as the other two or Top Gear.
