Some of the sitcoms I like are Vicar of Dibley and Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. If you've heard about them and other sitcoms comment on them here.

Everyone knows the simpsons. Married... with Children was parodies in A Bicyclops Built for Two. The "Engagament" episode of Vicar of Dibley was probably the funniest, and it was disgusting as well.

Well, The Goodies, Young Ones, Malcom in the Middle, Red Dwarf, Bottom and Blackadder (in no perticular order) are to name a few of my favourites, but to be honest, I've never been completely sure if you cast them as sitcoms.

Me? I don't cast them, but they are sitcoms. British ones are rather clever.

As far as British ones go, in addition to dr.bender nye's list, I also remember liking As Time Goes By, Dads Army, Ever Decreasing Circles, The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, Father Ted, The Good Life, Last of the Summer Wine, Open All Hours, Porridge, To the Manor Born, The Top Secret Life of Edgar Briggs, Yes, [Prime] Minister and (of course) Fawlty Towers back in the day. (I was going to add Ballykissangel but apparently that wasn't a sitcom.)

It's much harder to think of any US ones that were better than just 'okay'. One notable exception was Barney Miller and there must be others but nothing springs to mind right now. (And it's non-sitcom-ishness rules out Northern Exposure.)

Ah, those were the days, eh?

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Fawlty Towers is incorrectly known as the greatest British comedy, but actually, the list goes:

1. Only Fools and Horses
2. Blackadder
3.The Vicar of Dibley
4.Dad's Army
5. Fawlty Towers

The best sitcoms are the short running ones. If they go for too long they run out of jokes. Fawlty Towers is the shortest sitcom, but I'm surprised the list doesn't say it's the best.

I love British sitcoms!  Better than the American ones that are out (i.e. Friends, Two and a Half Men)  My favorites are:

Are You Being Served?
Keeping Up Appearences
To The Manor Born
Dad's Army
Faulty Towers
Jeeves and Wooster
A Bit of Fry and Laurie
(if you want to see a pre-House Hugh Laurie)

Do you translate your posts from Polish to english? So that's why they're so grammatically bad!

I'm sure that updating your sufficient knowledge of English will futher enhance understanding of us. Do not inadvertently confuse us with a mispronunciated sentence because it would decrease your language education. Salutations.

Did he get that? Most likely not.

For the next week or so, UK's Virgin Media XL customers can watch Seasons 9 and 10 of South Park through TV Choice On Demand, way cool, also, the UK's Sky One was showing The Middle tonight, that was cool. cool

I hope the Middle doesn't turn into another Oliver Beene, but instead, Malcolm in the Middle.
