    Neil, we already have a movie thread stickied.
    The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.

    Should that put me off?

    I watched it all again quite recently. I 'got' stuff that I had missed when it was aired originally.

    Our Friends in the North is a British television drama serial, produced by the BBC and originally broadcast in nine episodes on BBC Two in early 1996. Telling the story of four friends from the city of Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England over 31 years from 1964 to 1995, it also brought in real political and social events specific to Newcastle and Britain as a whole during the era portrayed, including general elections, police and local government corruption, the UK miners' strike (1984–1985) and the Great Storm of 1987. Publicity material for the serial used the tagline "Three decades, four friends and the world that shaped their lives".
    The serial is commonly regarded as one of the most successful BBC television dramas of the 1990s, described by The Daily Telegraph as "A production where all... worked to serve a writer's vision. We are not likely to look upon its like again."[1] In a poll of industry professionals conducted by the British Film Institute in 2000, it was 25th in a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes of the 20th century.

    No goblins in season one It's a drama set in medieval times. There's lots of scheming, lying and cheating along with good old fashioned acting.

    Now I've made it sound shit

    Give season one episode one a go. If you're not hooked after one episode, it's not for you. I expected it to be crap and ended up loving it.

    To be fair to you, the imdb rating is pretty good.

    British and Mercan humour is very different

    To any Brits, Arrested Development is good.
