Name that TV show

Based on a few vague memories, can you guys help me find a British TV series from the 80's? It involved roses, a maze and pairs of flying eyes that were spies for an evil sorcerer/king. It might be the TV show "Into the Labryrinth" but I can't tell for sure. Does this jog any memories for anyone? [more inside]

Looking for suggestions on what to watch.

I usually get suggestions from friends on things to watch, but they seem to have run out of things that appeal to me. I like crime drama, horror, SF, and intelligent comedy. Do you have any suggestions? Things that do/don't appeal to me beneath the fold. [more inside]

Finished Doc Martin & Ballykissangel...what next?

I really enjoy British TV dramas, with two of my favorites being Ballykissangel and Doc Martin, the latter of which I recently finished. What other British shows would you recommend in this same vein - that is, lighthearted hour-long dramas with a dash of comedy? [more inside]

TV to watch irons go by

I like watching light drama/90s sitcoms while I'm doing chores or want to relax for a bit. I've run out of my favourites, and there's probably a lot of stuff I've missed due to being too young or not staying in enough when they were broadcast. What next? [more inside]

OHHHH-HOOO said the King of Bekjae

Emperor Wang Gun. It is one of the best TV shows you have never seen. Unfortunately, I have only seen parts of it. Is there any way I can purchase this show at a reasonable price? All I can find is a heartbreakingly priced $300 DVD set.

Help me find a Spanish-language medical drama

Help me find a Spanish-language medical drama to improve my Spanish. Bonus points if it's available free and legally on-line (Hulu etc.) or via Netflix. I'm not looking for a telenovela - I would prefer something like ER or Chicago Hope. I've already seen some of Destinos. Spanish-subtitled episodes of ER, etc. would be a second choice. Please, save my patients from my gringa Spanish!

US Region DVDs of classic BBC Dramas.

I'm a huge fan of the epic British TV-dramas from the 70s & 80s -- the type shown here in America on "Masterpiece Theatre." Though some of the most famous ones ("Upstairs, Downstairs", "I, Claudius") have been out on DVD for a long time, I've noticed that recently some of the more obscure ones are coming out ("The Charmer," "To Serve Them All My Days"). I usually get my DVD news from dvdjournal.com, but that site doesn't list British series. Does anyone know of a site that tracks them? I am specifically interested in versions for the US, since I don't have a region-free DVD player yet.
