Your all time favorite comedy sitcom, something you can watch many times and never get tired of.,
Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas!
+1 for red dwarf here although father Ted is a close second
It's a very close run thing between Father Ted, Red Dwarf, Blackadder and Only Fools And Horses for me, but if you forced me to choose just one that I would be allowed to watch only that, to the exclusion of all others, it'd be Blackadder.
Having said all that, I'd rather watch sketch shows like The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Big Train or The Fast Show
Does Peter Kay's phoenix nights count? Now that is something I never get bored with
Only fools, can watch that all day long and still not be bored
Last of the Summer Wine
From the last century, Blackadder and One Foot In The Grave.
And depending on how you define sitcom, Shaun The Sheep.
Will always be Fawlty Towers for me, with Blackadder a close second.
Keeping up Appearences thought this was brilliant,
Only Fools and Horses can watch this over and never get bored,
Some Mothers do Ave em' timeless classic
Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest thing on TV at the moment, possibly ever.
I do have a real soft spot for OFAH though. It seems like it's always been there and some of those moments feel like part of all our lives.
Forgot Rab C Nesbitt, absolutely brilliant! Gotta love OFAH too, but it got quite poor in the end.
Father Ted, with Fawlty Towers coming a very close second.
Black Books with Farty Towels second
I wish the BBC would either get around to releasing MWE on DVD or flogging the old episodes to Dave.
Favourite sitcoms for me are Father Ted and Black Adder.
Steptoe & Son, Fawlty Towers, Dad's Army, Porridge, Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads, The Good Life (seems very twee now but I still love it), Open All Hours, Hancock's Half Hour....
Curb Your Enthusiasm is amazing, at first I was a bit wary of giving it a try as I didn't like Seinfeld but I'm glad I did.
DROP THE DEAD DONKEY
Although the 'situation' was a bit thin (Sally temporarily becoming christian, Dave Charley's money/woman problems), they more than made up for it with the topical jokes that ripped the micky out of the politicians of the day, such as The Anagram Game...
Virginia Bottomley = I'm an evil Tory bigot
Robin Cook = O cor, I bonk
Tony Blair M.P = I'm Tory Plan B
Joy Merriweather then said "Michael Heseltine is a slimey devious b@st@rd"
Damian Day asked "Is that supposed to be an anagram?"
Joy said "No"
Classic, and so damned simple!
Time Team !
What do you mean "it isn't a comedy" ?:roll:
I will add "Open All Hours" and "The Two Ronnies" to my earlier posting.
Fawlty Towers, Last of The Summer Wine (especially the "Foggy" episodes), Only Fools, On The Buses, Open All Hours, Porridge, Steptoe & Son, The Good Life.
Although "Love Thy Neighbour" was banned; at the time it was originally broadcast, I was living with a Caribbean lady and her family, and far from being offended, they were laughing their socks off.
Isn't it strange how officialdom seems to think it knows what is appropriate and what is not? Rather like local councils banning Christmas to avoid offending Muslims who, if you ask them, actually enjoy the atmosphere of it and the festivity.
The lad 'imself - Hancock's Half Hour.
Porridge by a long way.
I notice that every mention so far is a UK production, so I'm waving the Stars n' Stripes...
Big Bang Theory
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
I don't normally like US comedy, but I do enjoy Friends and 30 Rock.
No no no chaps you've got it all wrong, there is one that beats all of them...
Mrs Browns Boys
Has me screaming with laughter every time!!
