Nope. Not even close. I was DEEPLY embarrassed when I went home and saw just how bad UK tv had become. US tv beats UK tv silly - and that's saying something.
All the good UK shows are long over and done with - the Father Ted's, the Coupling's, the Only Fool's and Horseseseses etc. I am sure one of my Brit Bretheren will be able to throw something good into the mix but, sadly, I didn't see anything worthy when I was there. Not that I was there to watch tv but ya know what I mean.
For me, the good UK stuff tends to be the cooking progs - Rick Stein etc etc.
