Brit Coms

British Comedy.  Quite frankly most of the TV shows I like (or liked) are Brit Coms.

Anybody else?

I first saw them on WQED in Pittsburgh in the early 80's.  That was a PBS station.  Throughout the years I would see them on other channels and platforms.  I truly love most of those shows much better than what we in the U.S. put out overall.

You're not alone. My favorites are:

Fawlty Towers
The IT Crowd
Red Dwarf
As Time Goes By
Are You Being Served
Monty Python
Father Ted
Miranda
Black Adder
Steptoe and Son
The Office

Oh!  It's not a comedy.  However, it has it's moments.

You HAVE to watch both. They are laugh out loud hysterical. I forgot to add One Foot In The Grave. I loved Richard Wilson in it.  I hated 'Allo 'Allo. Vicar of Dibley was OK. I was sad to hear about the passing of Emma Chambers. Was 2.4 children the one with the crazy neighbor Beryl?

I will watch.  I've heard The IT Crowd is hilarious.  For some reason I never caught on.  My ex-wife said that I would be Victor Meldrew.  Probably the only thing she was right about.  LOL!

Alice Tinker was a great character.  Emma Chambers did that character justice.  So fun!

There was also a comedy series that had Dawn French and a bunch of others in it.  The name escapes me.  I remember watching a skit called "Fistful of Travelers Cheques."  It was so dumb I couldn't stop laughing.

I've seen an ad for Touch of Frost, and saw a few episodes of Cracker.  I enjoyed it.  My schedule at the time inhibited me from enjoying certain things, and over time I forgot or simply couldn't watch.

French and Saunders? Which reminds me of Absolutely Fabulous with Saunders. I used to LOVE that show. Especially Patsy (shout out to Pyewacket).

Miranda is very quirky and fun. I've watched the series a few times.
