I always have my reservations about the way he is portrayed as a serial killer. His behavior is so utterly strange and unbelievable that it distracts me too much to get involved with the show.
Try reading "The Collector" by John Fowles. Now that feels real to me.
On a side note, "The Magus" by John Fowles is also a friggin' awesome book.

The humour can be very subtle too, there are some obvious (and not so obvious) homages to classic comedy if you pay attention. The Simpsons has been referenced more than once...Angliru said:Hey, don't be ashamed. I love that show too and forgot to include on my list. Dean is hilarious to me as is the angel Caz. Very entertaining.
Alpe d'Huez said:Why do you wish you had not liked Columbo? That was a great series. A bit campy, but good mysteries every week. Some episodes Columbo wouldn't even show up until the show was half over, making things interesting. Plus, Peter Falk was a great actor. Looking beyond this role that made him famous, his work with John Cassavetes was superb. Powerhouse acting in Woman Under the Influence.
I got around to watching the first five episodes of Breaking Bad. Quite good. Also trying to watch more of the Wire.
The Howling Fantods said:Arrested Development coming back for one more season
Arrested Development" creator Mitch Hurwitz announced today that the show will be coming back to television -- five years after it was cancelled.
Hurwitz said the show will do a "limited" season which will show us what the characters have been up to since the show last aired ... which will then lead right into the planned movie.
There is no official deal in place yet for where or when the show will air.
Have a frozen banana and celebrate!

I think I'll celebrate by going to Burger King with Carl Weathers and get as many free refills as I possibly can, and of course whip out the old lightsaber!

Columbo- I wish I didn't like it but I do.
Luther- only been like 7 episodes in 2 years but really top stuff
Peep Show- Altough all my freinds/family/colleagues hate it I think its comedy genius
