British comedy is the best, absolutely.

I mean, come on! Monty Python! Rowan Atkinson! Fawlty Towers! Not the Nine O'Clock News! The Fast Show! The Vicar of Dibley! Keeping Up Appearances!

Let's discuss our favourite shows and sketches, our least favourite shows and sketches, upcoming plans, etc.

To begin with, I'll also give you 3 brilliant sketches-

Not the Nine O'Clock News- Constable Savage

Fawlty Towers- Don't Mention the War!

Rowan Atkinson- Fatal Beating
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

British comedy is the best. More recent stuff that deserve a mention are: The Office; The Peep Show and Extras.

Panel shows are great over here aswell: Never Mind The Buzzcocks; Have I Got News For You; Mock The Week (only because of Franky) and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

The first season was good; but after that it became stale and repetetive.

The Fast Show is brilliant. Also, AbFab, Men Behaving Badly, Spaced, Father Ted, Hippies (I don't know who will have heard of this, but it was brilliant), Red Dwarf, Black Books... the list is endless.

Young ones anyone? none of my friends seem to know it.

I saw that once, didn't find it funny though...
#19
Shawn of the dead made me cry, it was so damn funny.

Bill Bailey is a genious.

All of the shows mentioned so far are amazing... I doubt there are any US shows that can come close... maybe scrubs cos that is just plain rediculas.

Black books, Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, and if Hot Fuzz is even half as good as anything Pegg and Frost have done, it'll be there too.


Anyone see topgear last night? It has to be mentioned.

For anyone who doesn't know, they were driving through deep south of America, and their challenge was to get each other shot. So they each wrote slogans on each others cars; 'Gay love rules OK', 'Country Western sucks' and 'Hillary for President' were what they came up with. Watch it.

It was quite refreshing.
