I'm looking for a new series to get stuck into while I work out on the treadmill.

Some of the series I've really enjoyed so far:

How I met your mother
30 rock
New Girl
Downton Abbey
Red Dwarf
Futurama
Seinfeld
Frasier


So I guess mostly lighthearted comedy is my main genre. Nothing to crass.

Suggestions welcomed gladly original.gif

Thanks!

My latest fave is Arrow, which is a re-telling of the Green Arrow hero and it's just engrossing. And the lead actor is intriguingly hawt  biggrin.gif
