What are the best shows from your home country?

We talk about Asian dramas a lot here but I thought it’d be cool to have a topic about the shows we would recommend from our home countries. :smile: I noticed from the “Introduce Yourself” thread that we have a lot of people from all over the world on Viki, so it’d be interesting if we could interest people in shows from our own countries.

I’m from the UK, so I would recommend Sherlock and Luther. They’re two detective shows. Luther’s very dark but Sherlock is a modern update of Sherlock Holmes and, although dark, is a bit lighter. I’ve also heard some really good things about Brideshead Revisited, although I’ve never seen it myself. Maybe Viki could work on acquiring the license. :wink:

If you’re looking for something more K-Drama-esque, I’d probably recommend Miranda and Gavin & Stacey. They’re both comedies but have romance as a strong central theme. Miranda is really funny. I’ve always thought Gavin & Stacey was a bit overrated but it has a lot of charm.

I’m from Kashmir, so I’ll tell you some Pakistani Dramas.
