Your favorite non-American TV shows.

I'm an American and some of my favorite shows of all time are non-American TV shows. Americanized television can have a certain blandness to it at times. There are lines not crossed that non-American shows are more than happy to cross.

What are some of your favorite non-American television shows?

Gavin and Stacey
Fawlty Towers
Waterloo Road
Black Adder
Mr. Bean
Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps (Earlier series) Got pretty bad towards the end.

Re: Your favorite non-American TV shows.

Possibly my favorite show of all time was an Australian production.

Re: Your favorite non-American TV shows.

I've seen few mentions of Dr. Who. I know the show's history but I have only watched a few episodes with the current doctor. It looks like an awesome show. I've just never gotten around to it yet.
