Check out Luther, it's very good if you enjoy poice shows. It stars Idris Elba from the Wire.

Skins was great, but got worse each time the cast changed. Misfits is kind of the same boat, as cast members drop from that show like flies. It's just no the same.

As for comedies, I love the Mighty Boosh and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. But that's a very specific type of humour that isnt for everyone.

As mentioned before, inbetweeners is hilarious. If you like that you'd enjoy Fresh Meat and Friday Night Dinners (both star former Inbetweeners).

Spaced is decent, stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. IT Crowd has it's moments.

QI is a amazing, and I don't really like panel shows.
