This is difficult because I love Sitcom's, so I will start and probably be back with more, I am sure my first choice would not be popular now,Till death us do part,
Last of the summer wine,
Man about the house,
I liked Rising Damp, Hello Hello, Last of the Summer Wine and George and Mildred the best. Don't make them like that these days as they tend to be Americanised humour. I watched a programme last week with some of the cast of Hello Hello re-living the show and it was great. Did anyone else see it?. Jean.
Watching some celeb chat show where they have to pick their favoourites and it made me thin. Hancock, sykes, porridge but the one that I still laugh out loud to is "Father Ted"...but then again "Whatever happenned to the Likely lads"...Royle famikly. Nearly forgot "Early Doors" only two series but brilliant.
There have been so many excellent British sitcoms, but it has to be Fawlty Towers for me . And I nominate Ballard Berkeley (1904-1988) who played the Major for helping to make that series great (seen below much earlier in his career).
We are realy lucky with the high standard of British sitcoms, If you stop and think there are so many from as far back as the Larkins right up to Miranda. Faulty Towers takes my vote and anything with Ronnie Barker coming a close second.
