Give me Only Fools and Horses any day of the week Smile

Sign of a class programme when you can watch the episodes a lot of times and they are still funny.

RE: American or Brit TV?
The Brits do the best comedy without doubt, from Charlie Chaplin, Monty Python and now the likes of Mitchell and Webb we've always lead the way in comedy in my opinion. It's drama we've fallen behind in, when it comes to crime drama we have pompous crap and they have action filled blockbusters.

Even British movies are making a come back, would you rather have Benamin Button or Slumdog, Shaun Of The Dead or Scary Movie 3/4/5 or however many of those sh*t movies they've made.

Blackadder is also British and a work of art for me, really funny.

There are some great British comedies, Gavin and Stacey, Not Going Out, The Inbetweeners, Peep Show etc. In fact if you keep away from BBC3 (bar Gavin & Stacey) you're OK.

The yanks out do us on the big dramatic shows, except Morse of course, sitting around drinking tea, someone dies, drink more tea, murder solved, drink more tea, Morse dies, Lewis has a little cry over a cup of tea, GENIUS!

RE: American or Brit TV?
Having been to America on a number of occasions I've found the vast majority of their TV is banal.

However they do contempory drama much better than we do. The Wire & The Soprano's are without doubt the two best TV programmes I have ever seen. Nothing made over here in the last 20 years can touch either of them. Red Riding on Chanel 4 recently was very good, but in the main we rely on costume drama and unfunny comedy in terms of our TV output.

The BBC has a massive budget, but they do seem to churn out brainless shite with alarming regularity.
