What's your favorite foreign series?

Posted on


Image Credit: SOAPNetTonight’s season finale of Being Erica exemplifies everything I love about the show: originality, a sense of drama and whimsy, and a solidly interesting, emotionally mature story about a woman. Did you ride here on a unicorn, show?

Much as I love Erica, though, it’s only my second-favorite Canadian series. That top honor goes to Slings and Arrows, easily one of my most beloved shows of all time. Rounding out the top three is Degrassi: The Next Generation, which is a total bubblegum pleasure — or was back in the day. (Miss you, Craig.)

But these are just my faves from our northern neighbor. What about Green Wing, The IT Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Shameless, Torchwood, and Mock the Week? That’s barely the tip of my British-favorites iceberg!

What are your favorite non-U.S. series, PopWatchers?
