I've been watching British shows for many years now.  In addition to the old stand-byes like Monty Pythons Flying Circus, Fawlty Tower, and Doctor Who.  There's Father Ted, The Young Ones, Little Britain, Ideal, Dad's Army, Coupling, Black Books, and the Thin Blue Line just to name a few comedies off the top of my head. I also enjoy many of their crime drama type series.  Wire in the Blood comes to mind, a really good dark twisted psychological thriller type series.  Oh and one more that I just remembered was the original Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) known as My Partner the Ghost here in the U.S.A.  Loved it as a kid..

I've been watching episodes of Mrs. Brown's Boys. It's on BBC One or you can find it on you tube but only segments from the shows. If you need a good laugh, check it out!

I've recently become a fan of Downton Abbey. Very well done period drama/soap.

I'm a new fan of the Britcoms too.  While I prefer the American OFFICE to the UK version (I'm an "Amernican" myself, as Ricky would put it), of the strictly-Brit comedy, I like THAT MITCHELL AND WEBB LOOK, the two guys from PEEP SHOW in a sketch show format.  Some of it very brilliant, and it gives them a chance to step out of their PEEP SHOW characters, which they didn't do with their so-so feature comedy MAGICIANS.  HULU has series 1-6 of PEEP SHOW and 1-2 of LOOK, but I just found seasons (as we call them down here) 3-4 on Youtube, which I'm watching now.  Funny stuff.  I also liked BLACK BOOKS and some of the others mentioned on this thread.  Have to say, not as much SPACED, from the oft-brillian team of Pegg and Frost.  This sitcom has way too many movie nods, sometimes whole plot lines are film parodies, and this obsession worked against the artistic success of their feature film pAUL as well.  Their better films, SEAN OF THE DEAD and HOTFUZZ were great film parodies, but they only parodied one genre each, instead of grabbing quotes and scenes from whatever film had a good or memorable line.  For more on the tradition of the film parody, there's an excellent essay about it in my book, FIFTY SHADES OF TRAILER PARK BOYS: TPB in the Great Comedic Traditions, available now at amazon (in the UK and Europe too) and almost everywhere else!  Just sayin, it makes a great gift!

Here's one from the show "Snuff Box," one of the craziest Britcoms.

Naom Sayin:  haven't seen IT CROWD.  I usually catch these shows on Hulu, where they show here free.  It's an website filled with lots of good programming, some quite new.  Where would I find THE IT CROWD here, do you know?  What's the show about?

It's literally about the IT department of a large company in England. The boss knows nothing about IT and her two underlings are hilarious.

There's lots of clips on youtube, including this personal fave: The IT Crowd - Series 2 - Episode 3: Piracy warning

Here's every episode (pretty sure) of IT Crowd. It's a completely free streaming and DL site. Used it for years and never any issues. Register to watch. Otherwise, when you click to watch a video it says you need some codec bullshite (but you don't.)
Also search for other series and movies on the site. You may be surprised to find that elusive gem you've been pining over for years.

Anyone here every seen the show Benidorm ? I noticed that Johnny Vegas from Ideal fame is in it.  When I was in the Navy and stationed in Spain, I took leave and drove to Benidorm a time or two.  A real rockin' city on the Spanish Riviera, so less expensive than the French Riviera back in the day..

I haven't started watching Benidorm yet EB.  But if I do catch it I will make sure that my hopes are not that high. But I did get all caught up on Ideal.  Discovered another show called PhoneShop which I really enjoyed.  Two series of the show so far.  I started to watch that show because Emma Fryer is in it.  She was Tania in Ideal.. Or as Psycho Paul would say.. Taniaaaa, Taniaaaa.. LOL ! I just finished watching the first 5 episodes of series one of The IT Crowd.. Hilarious.. I have noticed a lot more shows on the site Golf provided so I will probably be watching that for awhile.  I  also noticed that The Drunk and on Drugs Happy Funtime Hour is on there as well. So I watched that one again.  Episode 3 got stuck and wouldn't play so had to watch that one on YouTube..

Love PhoneShop myself David. Check the site for a show called Shelfstackers. Similar to Phoneshop except its in a supermarket. Speaking of supermarkets check out Trollied another show set in a market.
