wont work if your not in the UK.

and teh-traineezorz, how can you say that. What about programms like blackadder? family guy? the simpsons? friends? Fawlty Towers? those are all hilarious. Its the "family" sitcoms which are awful.

I've partly seen two or three episodes.
Terrible doesn't quite cut it.

yeah...that's what I meant sorry.

the family ones, are the ones I hate. shitty uninteresiting characters with no personality ftl.

my fave sitcom is arrested development...damn fox...damn you to hell for cancelling one of the most clever and hilarious series you ever had.
yo.

I BELIEVE

It is incredibly predictable. Although it's not quite as bad as My Family, especially the more recent ones.

I am so tempted to sig that...


EDIT: Anyway, since everybody else is throwing in their two cents, I might aswell do the same.

The English version of The Office, and Fawlty Towers are about as good as comedy gets.

Americans have Everybody Loves Raymond and Seinfeld. Both very good aswell.

But AD is a family sitcom.

Granted, its an amazing one, but still.

Though the 'family' sitcoms I was referring to don't usually tackle plotlines involving incest, casual sex, homosexuality etc.

Whaat

I fell in love with that show when I was ten and I owe that show because a lot of my English improved thanks to that.
It's still amazing to watch even now.

Season 1 was brilliant. Season 2 was good, but not great, and everything just died after that.

I don't usually watch American comedies, because I'm a generalising bastard that thinks if one is crap, all are crap.

But Friends is decent enough. Not groundbreaking by any means though.

Mehhh
I watched a few episodes with a friend who was obsessed with Friends and I honestly didn't laugh even once. I chuckled and smiled a few times, but it just didn't have the jokes it needed for it to be a good "laugh out loud show" or the witticism it would have needed for it to be a funny non-lulzy comedy.
