Fawlty Towers is the best in my opinion, pitty they only made 2 seasons but even though only 2 were made, they were gold.

I found the German wone the best out of the 13 ever made (Too bad it was only 13, but they are all good!). His walk was hilarious!

The german episode was great, the funny thing about Fawlty Towers is that they made 6 or so episodes in 1974 (I think) and in 1979 they made the rest.

What is your favorite British movie? I think mine would be 'Nuns on the Run' a very funny Eric Idle and Robbie Coaltraine (I think thats how you spell it) movie. It's full of every  thing good... men dressing as nuns, nude women, chinese modsters... and of course NUN's

Favourite british movie? "Monty Python & The Holy Grail", no competition. Best british humor, hmm that's a bit thougher. But Monty Python, Fawlty towers and Yes Minister/Prime Minister are all some of my favourites.

Welcome to PEEL, BlackAdder. Enjoy it here.  Great name by the way, way better than Black Vegetable.  big grin

A lot of British comedy is horribly painful, and not in a good way.

BlackAdder:"From now on I'll be known as... The Black Vegetable"
Baldrick: "Wouldn't BlackAdder sound better my lord?"
BlackAdder:"From now on I'll be known as... The BlackAdder"

I really enjoy Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister. Also I like French and Saunders and French and Saunders: Absolutley Fabulous. The Victor of Dibbley was just a riot.

I quite like SPACED besides all those mentioned. It's a Sitcom and has got two main charcters from Big Train, and is bloody funny.

After they got rid of John K. He was such a deviant he was kicked out of art school for anti-social behavior, imagine that, art school is full of deviants.  no no

I have MPATHG in my DVD-CDROM right now. Its awesome! The only problem with the DVD is the lack of special features (there is next to none!).

I love the Mr Creosote scene from The Meaning of Life, that kills me even more.
