    Even though I've moved on to someone else, I still hold a special place in my heart for Lagman so I did this little thread with video links to guide him through teh awesome British Comedy. Here are some very funny scenes for you and everyone else to have a great big bottom raising laugh to.

    The Young Ones




    Red Dwarf




    Spaced




    League of Gentlemen





    Bottom



    Blackadder




    Black Books




    The New Statesman





    Father Ted (yeah yeah I know its Irish)




    Not The Nine O'Clock News





    The Fast Show





    Garth Marenghis Darkplace




    Feel free to add your own clips.

    The new comedies thatve been showing lately are absolutely brilliant too.
    I havent been in england for a year though so ive forgotten most of them
    "My family" is the only one that springs to mind

    It is good but British comedy has been in decline recently though.

    Let's see what I can think up! [​IMG]

    Mr . Bean (of course)
    The Fast Show (one of my ALL TIME favourites)
    The Two Ronnies
    The Vicar of Dibley
    I Am Alan Partridge
    Big Train
    Brass Eye
    Fawlty Towers
    The Thin Blue Line
    Only Fools and Horses
    My Family (can be OK sometimes)
    Black Books
    2 point 4 Children
    Keeping up Appearances

    Oh, and I can't stand Little Britain so I "un-recommend" that! Load of bollocks.

    Can't stand Mr Bean, Vicar of Dibley, Harry Enfield or Royale Family and Little Britain, though I liked it at first is overplayed now.

    I have to say its a shame that Big Train & Brass is highly regarded nowadays. Use to always watch Fist of Fun & This Morning With Richard Not Judy a lot too.

    Blue Jam the radio series was great too, came to the telly as just Jam and was the by Chris Morris.

    Well they were working on a film that actually was a restart of it, and now that seems to be lost in development hell. That was why we've not had series 9 for ages, there was talk of a new series after the film went and gone but nothing since has been said.

    Would be great if it did happen and that Rob Grant rejoined for it (it wasn't really as good when he left).

    Men Behaving Badly has it's moments, some bits of it are priceless [​IMG] (and other bits are shit but we ignore those).
    Never Mind the Buzzcocks is too, but it's a comedy-quiz so you probably wouldn't find it on DVD

    Yeah Buzzcocks is golden, love the new series too. The best place for Buzzcocks is uknova, they're the best for UK stuff, recently just put first series on.
