Ah hem...
Red Dwarf?
Coupling?
Drop the Dead Donkey?

Ab Fab misses out by having beeen very funny in the first 3 seasons, but just plain tedious now.

All very worthy... But, the Top 5 is a personal thing, and there are only 5 spots in it.

Feel free to respond with your own Top 5s people.

Okay... you've forced me to spell it out:

Instead of criticising my Top 5, regale me with yours.

It's easy, just list your Top 5 (not 3, not 7) of the subject concerned.

Yay, Bob...

You've got the idea.

It's all about celebrating differences people.

I don't watch ABC frequently enough to have any other faves, I was only giving the only 3 I had. :P

Sorry for my over-reaction people, but I'm a bit of a "Top 5 Nazi".

This stuff is serious god-dammit.

Now drop and give me 5.

I haven't even heard of any of those... Ab Fab yes, but only within the past year.

Jay... you poor CANADIAN (I remembered). You'd love those shows, the Poms make the best sitcoms.

I think The yanks tried to copy "Men Behaving Badly", it had Justine Bateman and Rob Schnieder in it... it was craaap.

Paul, the Yanks did try to copy Men Behaving Badly and it did indeed suck. They also tried Coupling. Again, major suckage. There is now an American version of The Office (Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are producers and are involved in the scripting). It sucks, it is a steaming turd pile. I guess Ricky and Stephen were enticed by some big money. I don't mind, they deserve it.

Love "Father Ted" but its Irish not British ;-) otherwise it would be my Number 2

1. The Office
2. Phoenix Nights
3. Spaced
4. Blackadder
5. Only Fools and Horses

You're all speaking a foreign language to me, because I'm a poor, helpless American. Wow, Paul! You've never been so testy before (because I've known you for sooo long). It made me giggle. I will follow the rules next time.

:) I'll remember to dot-point/number it this time:

1 Red Dwarf
2 Black Adder
3 Fawlty Towers
4 Ab Fab (sorry to pinch the idea but I agree) :)
5 Men Behaving Badly (but not a regular watcher)

The rest I'll take on advice and check out sometime
