Does anyone else watch British Comedies?

I have become obsessed with Keeping Up Appearances and As Time Goes By. They show them on PBS here and I love them! Hyacinth totally cracks me up.

That's because PBS has never aired it.

It was shown here on BBC America. If you're familiar with the NBC remake of "The Office," it's similar. Kind of an office mockumentary.

I wish I had BBC America. Brit comedies are so freaking funny. We need shows like that here!

Only Fools and Horses - you guys in the US need to watch that if you haven't already, it was Britain's favourite comedy show in some poll last year.
