    I’m a fan of Absolutely Fabulous and speaking of, they are making an American version… um, why? Why are Americans always making American versions of British stuff? They speak the same language so I just don’t get it.

    ...yeah, I've read that the man himself was a complete asshole, but I have such a hard time believing it because he was so damned, damned funny.....the hardest I have ever laughed was the first Pink Panther movie.....the chase scene after the party when they're all dressed in costumes and driving those little, bitty English cars around that square and the old guy trying to cross the street ends up getting a chair to watch.....

    ...made my sides hurt....in a good way....

    The Young Ones
    Comic Strip
    Bottom

    Can you tell I love Rik and Ade? My H is British and says I have to see the New Statesman, where Rik plays a politician named Alan B'stard. Sounds hilarious.

    And most of Lynnie's list too adding Keeping Up Appearances. Thanks for the reminder Cynic of those Carry On movies - they were hysterical. I wonder if they are on DVD now?

    Little Britain. Love it. I watched Little Britian USA. IT was ok but not as nearly as funny.

    Uh DUR: Absolutely Fabulous sweetie darling.

    And Monty Python and Are You Being Served.

    BBC America doesn't show Ab Fab nearly as much as I would like unfortunately...

    Ab Fab
    Keeping Up Appearances
    Coupling
    Little Britain
    My Family -- I think I'm the only person in the world who finds this funny
    Til Death Do us Part but I like All in the Family better (Edith rocks!)
    Extras
    Skins

    I prefer those cheesy British dramas like Midsommer Murders or Casualty or The Bill to British comedy shows. Do those BBC documentaries count as comedy? They're hilarious and I love them so.

    There isn't a BritCom that I haven't loved. The only one I see missing is Red Dwarf.

    Yes times four. Brass Eye and The Day Today are also worthy of a heads up, and if you love British Comedy I imploe you to track down 'Pulling'...it was cancelled after 2 series but is absolutely hilarious, it's very dark humour.

    Gavin and Stacey is quite sweet as well.
