      Lots of great reviews for NCIS. I used to enjoy this programme when it was on Channel 5. Can't watch it now as, since it's transfer to FX, the sub titles have been removed and I am profoundly deaf. Grossly unfare.

      A fine collection of American drama and comedy

      FX has to be one of my favourite Sky channels: it dispenses with the dreadful soaps and God-awful reality TV that floods our screens over here, and delivers some of the finest crime drama and comedy from the U.S. Seeing as they unequivocally do drama better than us, it's nice to see a whole channel devoted to shows that I'm a big fan of. FX are also a TV network in America, making shows such as The Shield and Nip/Tuck, so the programming consists largely of their own content. Here are my favourite shows that regularly appear on FX:

      Buffy the Vampire Slayer = we all know it. It's Joss Whedon's classic vampire show starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, and is a huge cultural milestone of the TV medium. Witty and very entertaining.

      Family Guy = although it has waned a bit recently, this is still a bitingly funny series and FX frequently air the older episodes which is refreshing given their superior quality.

      The Shield = possibly FX's best home-grown show, this is a gritty, intense and supremely well-acted show about police corruption in California. Certainly one of the best TV shows ever made and one that's worth catching from the beginning (so maybe not watching on this network!)

      Nip/Tuck = a slick and glossy show that is nevertheless insanely addictive and well acted. The quality of its production is only matched by how thoroughly, gloriously ridiculous it is.

      The Wire = often cited as the best show of all time, this is another gritty and intelligent crime drama that unfolds with the scale of a novel. It takes a bit of getting into, and despite not being owned by F/X (HBO made it), they are one of the few networks to champion it so I praise them.

      A Good Channel With Really Great Programmes. Worth Watching

      FX was launched in the UK on January the 12th 2004. It was orginally called FX289 although it has since been re-branded as FX. A High Definition version of the channel was launched April the 28th 2008.

      FX stands for Fox Extended & this is a channel owned by 20th Century Fox. In the UK it shows both Fox & Non Fox produced shows. There have been lots of shows that make their UK Debut on this channel including Dexter, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Generation Kill & the american version of Life On Mars. You can also usually catch some episodes of Family Guy pretty much every day of the week.

      One complaint that I did have with the channel previously was that the HD channel used to run one week behind. Episode 2 of a series would be on the main channel while Episode 1 would be being shown on the HD channel. This was pretty pants & meant that I didn't use the HD channel although this has since been resolved & the HD channel is usually up to date with the Single Definition version.

      I find that I watch this channel quite a lot. Especially in the 10.00 p.m Friday Night time slot in which Dexter, True Blood & Life on Mars all fall. The channel is the home of some great drama programmes, some of which are very popular. I recommend giving it a go.

      Dexter is the main show i watched on this channel which is about a blood splatter expert who is also a serial killer at night. Great show and hopefully the 4th series will be on the channel soon as its out in america at the moment.
      Generation kill is another show i watched on here which is based on a true story about a journalist who travelled to irag with the american marines. This is full of explosive action and im sure they spent a huge budget on this as its very realistic and was loed by real marines from the US.

      The advert breaks arent too long on here either like some channels, with a few of the adverts showing us what similar shows are coming up and when, with a little preview.

      Another show i loved on here was breaking bad, this was about a science teacher who developed cancer but didnt tell his wife, he then began to make crystal meth to sell on the streets to fund his death for his wife when he passed away. Again the 2nd series has been out in the US but not over here and again i hope FX UK show this soon.

      There are comedy shows on here aswell such as family guy and the signal. Great laughs from both of these and im sure there are a few other comedy shows around aswell on the channel.

      Overall a well presented channel with great shows, just wish they showed some of them a little quicker and not so far behind the US.
