When it comes to TV, is homegrown the best or do you prefer to watch shows from across the pond?
Britain is famous for its award winning period dramas, whereas America has many popular sitcoms. Australia offers some gritty dramas and some of most popular soap operas. What's your viewing preference?
I think my preference would be British TV except for soap operas which I've never liked, but for dramas I think British TV has the edge. Then I'd opt for joint second of Australia and America. I think Australia produces some really quality programs but America seems to get the biggest budget and this often results in some great special effects.
I haven't seen that many Australian shows. I like a lot of of American sci-fi shows like Star Trek, Stargate, The X-Files, etc, and I really like their Golden Age Cartoons. Overall though, I'm going to be biased and say I prefer British shows, particularly wen it comes to comedies, documentaries, and dramas.
I want to say Canadian shows here. Many shows perceived to be American made are actually Canadian, particularly science-fiction and fantasy shows. Some examples are the X-files, all of the Stargate series, Battlestar Galactica, Orphan Black, the upcoming fox show The Pines and many many more. These shows are picked up or funded by American stations but many of the lead actors, virtually all of the extras, the camera crews, the make-up artists, are all Canadian.
