Recently one of my flatmates was watching Lockie Leonard on iPlayer. Needless to say I mocked her for watching a CBBC show. Now we both watch it... I'd like to say I'm watching it "Ironically" or something, but you know what, its actually fairly funny. The episode where they had a twisted parody of 80s(?) sitcoms was pretty well done.
Edit: Probably going to need a bit of explanation for the show- doubt many people in general have seen it. Drama/Comedy based around a surfer kid and his oddball family. More intelligent than you'd expect and I am informed they handled mental illness fairly well at some point (not too surprising given the nature of the family).

Or, y'know, I could just be projecting.
For what it's worth I thought the opening two-parter was awesome but none of the other half-dozen or so episodes I watched quite measured up to it.

Or it could be the Executive Producer for MLP, Lauren Faust, is really, really good at producing shows that transcend gender biases. I'm certainly not enamored of the pony show, but I do have a fondness for The Powerpuff Girls, one of her earlier efforts. So I can see why others would fall as well for MLP.

Just watched the TV adaptation of The Colour of Magic again and while it's probably the least of its ilk I'm still impressed by how well they captured the feel of Pratchett's world. (Going Postal is the best of the three, with Hogfather a close second.)
edit: And then I watched Going Postal again and OH MY GOD is Charles Dance not just the perfect choice for Vetinari?
edit2: David Suchet should be given more opportunities to be the villain. He was awesome in "Hidden" too.

Googling Lauren Faust certainly made me more interested in MLP.
Haven't found any new shows that gripped me and I don't want to play catch-up with Game of Thrones, so I'm back to the comedy re-run rotation:
-It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Workaholics premieres tonight though. Should be good. I've been listening to a lot of Childish Gambino lately and I'm convinced I should try Community as well.

Anyone planning to record the season finale of Game of Thrones be aware that it's about ten minutes longer than usual!

Colour of Magic really grated with me, especially the casting. "HAHA celebrity likes Terry Pratchett quick cast him in a role - any role will do"
Sadly I appreciate that the economies of film-making mean the programs probably wouldn't have been made otherwise, so I guess I'm thankful to them. But honestly when writing list of actors to play Rincewind and the tourist, David Jason and Sean Astin wouldn't have even crossed my mind.
I agree that Charles Dance was a great choice, much better than Jeremy Irons who seemed to give Vetinari a weird speech impediment (I dont think Irons naturally has it but maybe I'm wrong?).
As they're my favourites I remain thankful that they've thus far steered clear of the Watch books as I'd hate to see them half-arsed. Although I do believe they could be fabulous with LotR-esque budget.
I also maintain that Hugh Laurie would make for an outstanding Vimes and while I'd happily give the job back to Charles Dance I think Rowan Atkinson channeling Blackadder II would be a phenomenal Vetinari. Someone like Damian Lewis could potentially pull off Carrot (although not in stature)
