TWQ: Best TV Show So Far of 2011

TWQ (the Weekend Question) is asking you to name the TV shows that have bought you the most pleasure this year.

What have been your favourite TV shows so far this year, in particular new ones? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

The Killing: Not the American remake, but the original Danish subtitled version in which  Inspector Sarah Lund is obsessed with finding a killer in Copenhagen, Denmark. A truly original 20 hour edge of seat thriller.




The Crimson Petal And The White: A well-made drama about a London prostitute who tries to come up in society and also to help others. Warning: not one to watch with your visiting grandparents or a priest!

Now it's over to you....

I don't think there's been anything new on that I've really taken a shining to, especially considering there are only a handful of shows that I like to watch on a regular basis those being:

Glee (yea, yea, I'm a Gleek - deal with it!)
The Good Wife
Doctor Who
Sherlock (the BBC version though we have to wait for it to come out on DVD over here!)

I'm just starting to watch TV again after years of ignoring it. My favorites are Law & Order SVU, Law & Order, Criminal Minds, and M*A*S*H.

And of course, anything Star Trek related! Just watched the first movie again yesterday.
