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!

I just love it.  It's appeals to a certain kind of sense of humour but dh and I were totally addicted!  We also like the office.

We recently discovered a series called Outnumbered. If you're into pommy comedy and have kids, it's gold.

Definitely Parks and Recreation.  Love it.  It really gets best at the end of season 2 though.  Start at the beginning.  They are short episodes.  

30 Rock. original.gif

Episodes

Veep (with Julia Louis Dreyfus as the vice president)  Only one season made of this I think.

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

Veep, so funny!
Modern Family
New Girl
Partners (only had 6 or so episodes but I found it hilarious)
the New normal

Hart of Dixie is fun for some light entertainment
Scandal is awesome (from the creator of Greys Anatomy)
Arrow is Revenge-ish and ok entertainment
