British Comedy Appreciation Thread

I really love the imported sitcoms and sketch shows from the UK that we get. They're all hilarious. Favourites:

Coupling
Fawlty Towers
Black Adder
The Sketch Show
The Kumars @ No. 42
Goodness Gracious Me
Harry Enfield's Brand Spanking New Show

We've got some new episodes of Trigger Happy TV coming up, which I personally haven't watched before but my friend said it's a scream. Plus my neighbour lent me a video of three episodes of Only Fools and Horses and I must say that they were all brilliant.

Anyone else likes British comedy?

I've only seen Blackadder.

Oh, I did see one episode of "Coupling" on TV here. It was where a guy met this girl who didn't speak English and due to miscommunication, ended up thinking her name was the (Hebrew? I think she may have been from Israel) word for "breasts." HILARIOUS!!

Monty Python's Flying Circus is my favorite. I like Mr. Bean, Fawlty Towers, Keeping Up Apperences and Are You Being Served as well. They're never showed on TV here anymore, and I don't get BBC America. It's not fair.

So Graham Norton, Keeping Up Appearances and my absolute favorite is Father Ted!!! I have series 1 & 2 on DVD and I can't wait for them to finally release series 3.

Best Father Ted Episode ever...The Passion of St. Tibulus ...be careful now...we'll have none of that here!
