Best TV Show of 2011

Standard

DIY reports Being Human at the top of their list of The Best TV Shows of 2011, ranking number 1!

…the combination of Lenora Crichlow, Russell Tovey and Aidan Turner. They all have the ability to make you laugh or cry, sometimes even both. With no prior knowledge of Turner leaving the show, Being Human shocked its fanbase by delivering a stake to their hearts – and to Mitchell” says DIY.

DIY goes on to say that once Being Human (UK) ends there might be a chance given to the SYFY version. It’s not worth the time watching in my opinion. The UK version of Being Human trumps all on my list. But of course, YOU already knew that.

Hattie – Radio Times Top 40

Standard

Hattie was named number 36 out the Top 40 TV programs of 2011 by Radio Times.                 

A superb example of BBC4’s curious but rewarding obsession with mid-ranking, mid-20th Century entertainers, and the misery success brought them. Hattie Jacques, trapped by sexist typecasting and her supportive but inert husband John Le Mesurier, welcomes a sexy young lodger (Aidan Turner) into the family home and proceeds to have an affair with him. As Jacques, Ruth Jones captured the desperation of someone who knows, deep down, that she’s destroying herself, but can’t quite stop. Robert Bathurst was just as fine as Le Mesurier, who could see what Jacques was doing but couldn’t quite rouse himself to prevent her. A sensational-on-paper story became sober, classy and sad.” – Jack Seale, Radio Times
