I loved 30 Rock. Definitely one of the better comedy shows in the last decade or so.

I guess if you like pseudo comedians hammering you over the head with terrible dialogue while not quite looking you in the eye as if you're supposed to take their non-jokes as brilliant commentary. I legitimately despise 30 Rock in a way I don't more mediocre sitcoms that don't try as hard.

No, I like actual comedians and funny jokes and memorable characters with zany dialogue that doesn't try at all to make some kind of commentary (unless Tina Fey farting into blankets is some kind of veiled comment on the vapidity of our consumeristic lives, which then went over my head), which is what 30 Rock gave me. I guess we watched 2 different shows, or have a very different sense of humour. :/

It's not zany it's just affected.

Tom's singing on The Boondocks is pretty much the best voice acting of all time. The way he fails to hit epic crescendos that he's clearly nailing in his head...genius.

Line of Duty, one of the better police procedurals imo

Excellent series. The kind of thing you really can't stop watching. Powerful performances all around. If you liked it, try also Vigil and Showtrial, made by the same team.

Keeley Hawes above all for me. Been a fan since catching Complicity on TV one night as a teenager

Yes but only in one season. For me, Adrian Dunbar #1 and Martin Compston #2, obvious as that may seem.
