The West Wing - Love dialogue and it treated its viewer as if they we grown-ups
House of Cards [UK version] - Just gloriously complex!

I never watched it as i was too young to appreciate it, but Tenko looked liked quite an interesting drama and unusual in that it had a predominantly female led cast.

I, Claudius




Claudius: Oh, god of gods! Never have I witnessed a dance that gave me such p-profound s-spiritual joy!
Caligula: Oh. Did you like it?
Claudius: It was indesc-cribable.
Caligula: Well, it was only a rehearsal
Claudius: Oh. W-whatever will the f-finished performance be like?
Caligula: Get up. Come here. What did you think of the girl?
Claudius: Oh, b-beautiful
Caligula: You old lecher! Bring the girl back! I'm going to marry her to you tomorrow!

POSE - Possibly the best drama I've watched since The West Wing.
The writing is great, the characters are believable and the actors and acting amazing.
It took me to a society and way of life I knew nothing and made me care what happened.
It is a hard and heart wrenching watch at times, but all so full of life and love.

My father in law recently died and we now have a load of his dvds I am slowly working through them. I know I am going to enjoy Danger UXB but what surprised me was The Onedin Line, a series I remember as something I had to endure as a kid back in the 70s but now as an adult I enjoy. Like the William Tell Overture and Hi Ho Silver, I am sure most people of my vintage or older from the UK do not think of gladiators when they hear Khachaturian's Adagio from Spartacus but think of a large sailing ship crossing the sea. I wonder what Khachaturian would have made of it.
