Do you like television more from another country then your own country?

I'm American, but I like British television more then American television

I watch way more British content either, Netflix series or documentaries. I also like other foreign stuff from Spain, and northern Europe. If fact American/Canadian television I watch the least.
@JimboSaturn I watch more movies than series and often they are foreign. I happen to love Asian films, they are very good at creating story pieces focusing on small storylines that are very human and felt, but as you know I'm Canadian too, I have to say there are some very good Canadian films but you have to appreciate human stories that may not include very dramatic parts and instead look for the nuances of life.

@thewindupbirdchronicles Yes I do enjoy Canadian films as well, they are usually more dialogue and character driven.

As a Brit, I have to say our television acting standard is pretty average, compared to American actors. Our scripts, aside from some notable exceptions, are also unremarkable, usually due to budget restrictions. British TV as a whole is probably the best in the world, due to its breadth and variety, and BBC Radio stations are superb. Money does produce quality, but sometimes a lack of it breeds creativity.

I like it more, because it's totally different then American television. The style of acting is even different.

The whole concept is even done different then ours.

@HumanEarth how would you say it was a different approach? I'd be interested in your view.

British soap operas are fantastic. 😘

Korean, spanish, japanese, indian and turkish are also nice.

I'm a Brit - you exhibit impeccable taste.
I still find it hilarious to explain the concept of the TV licence to Americans - the response I usually get is "Yes, we pay for the BBC through our cable subscription, too".

No, that's not the same because you can opt out of your cable subscription if you don't like it - sure, you'll be cut off... but you don't get prosecuted for watching TV without a cable subscription (assuming you don't default on the bill) like we do with watching TV without a licence.

Your cable company doesn't write to you, threatening to send a man out to your house while you are at work and your wife and children are home alone to bully her into buying a subscription - only to take her to court for watching TV with no subscription anyway. Yes, it's predominantly women who are taken to court for this.

We would watch a mix of both British and Irish
We certainly wouldn't favour British and those of that would, wouldn't admit it 😂
Some of the comedies and the various takes on Sherlock Holmes. "I Claudius" was broadcasted on my first visit to England.

Strange question.
Not more, but I’ve been getting into Korean dramas lately. And I love British television shows and movies. Like Peaky Blinders. And Cillian Murphy. And Tom Hardy. 😍

Same. I like how much more down to earth British TV is.
