lets not forget the miriacle of British sci-fi television that was the prisoner. Brilliantly written, brilliantly directed, briliantly acted.
The changing of Number 2 from episode to episode was masterful, and the last two episodes were amazing.
America has nothing to compare, not to say they haven't produced decent sci-fi, some of the best comes from america. but its a different league.

Agreed on the prisoner - great show. But you can't say too many bad things about american Sci-Fi - you chose your screen name based on an american Sci-Fi movie Trilogy, Morpheus....
