Misfits: Season 3

How is Nathan Stewart-Jarrett going to feel as the "old" misfit in the next season? (I'd have moved on.)

Upstairs Downstairs (2010): Season 1

The trouble with following up a beloved television series is that there is little chance you will be equal (or better) to the task.

Warehouse 13: Season 2

This show would be stellar if only there was better chemistry between those leads. Separately they're pretty great.

Warehouse 13: Season 1

Not at all surprised that Allison Scagliotti graduated to permanent cast member in Season 2. Maybe because of stuff like this: "I'll give it an 8.5, but next time you gotta stick the landing."

The Woman in Black

There is zero subtlety to this horror flick. No wonder Radcliffe has so little to work with.

The Lost Prince

I'm finding it pretty hard to believe this has won numerous awards. Sleep-inducing, that's what I found it.

Cranford: Season 1 & Special

Those final two (special) episodes were some of the noodliest plot-finagling I've ever seen. But, the original 5 episodes rank right up there with the best of British romantic drama.
