I just found out about James May's Toy Stories (2009)...downloading the last 2 episodes of the IT Crowd...but what newish things should I also get?
Is the series "Misfits" any good? "Primeval"? "Carrie & Barry"?
Also, any specials or TV movies I need to check out?

Psychoville.
And I know it's not BBC but you mention IT Crowd which is channel 4 so another channel 4 must see is Green Wing.

I just watched all the episodes of "Luther" a sorta creepy serial-killer kinda BBC detective show thing starring the guy who played Stringer Bell on The Wire. I thought it was awesome. There's only 6 episodes I think, but apparently they'll shoot a couple more next year.

I'm really loving Miranda at the moment, I love that the woman playing Miranda wrote that part for herself!

I am a HUGE fan of Psychoville (and before that LOG). Got the DVDs from Amazon UK, but was downloading as they were airing. So brilliant...especially the Hitchcock tribute episode.

I loved Misfits. Did I miss season 2 or has it just not been shown yet?

I have nothing to add, but I just found out about May's Toy Stories myself. Sounds interesting... any good?

Damn! Is it on E4? I dont have E4 anymore so that could be why I didn't hear about it. I will have to wait until they eventually show it on channel4.

It's about to start a third season, but I highly recommend Being Human. Vampires, werewolves and ghosts. That don't sparkle.

Each season is only short, sixish episodes from memory.

I also really liked Sherlock, which, though set in the 21st centruy, felt more like the early Holmes stories than other recent stuff set in the Victorian era. The writers are fans of Conan Doyle, so there are lots of little details lifted from or inspired by the original stories.

PhoneShop on channel 4 is pretty hilarious

+1 for Misfits too. season 2 finale should drop in about 18 or so hours I guess!

Accused. Jimmy McGovern's self-contained episode drama. Great casts, good writing as usual.

Watched this tonight on iPlayer. It was very good, I thought! Not based on an actual Adams story, but very faithful to his style and the characters.

Ewwwwww, NO!

If you haven't seen them, try to see Whites, and Grandma's House.

Steve Coogan's new show The Trip was pretty great too.

I can send you an invite the next time I get one (probably a month : ( ). Also, I think they might start allowing more members after inactive ones get automatically deleted, so maybe keep checking.

I really like The Misfits -- Mr. Nummers gets our shows from thebox too. Another show I'm loving is Getting On, set in a hospital - hilarious and sad at the same time.

Also, Grandma's House is brilliant, though it's hard for me to watch because the family dynamics are so irritatingly familiar to me that it makes me pissy!
