1. From a different viewpoint, I just don’t find US shows that good anymore. I keep trying ones that have been hailed as huge, but I find US drama to be overwrought and humourless. That is why our local dramas are so much better – we blend drama with real life humour and ordinariness. US shows are just so intense, it feels fake.

    There are limited number of settings (emergency services, crime/legal – wow, I couldn’t even think of a third!) so they all seem to be same-same.

    Some US comedies are good, but they are gems to find amongst some terrible stuff.

    I wish the commercial channels would turn their eyes away from second-rate US shows, and give us much more from the UK or Europe, where the dramas show more real-life lightness and humour.
