    I think mine has to be Only Fools and Horses, although I really liked Faulty Towers.
    What were yours?

    2.4 children, Birds of a feather, Bread, Only fools, Dinner ladies, Father Ted, Gimme Gimme Gimme, It aint half hot mum, One foot in the grave, On the buses, Open all hours (original version), Rab C Nesbit, and loads of others, all these made me laugh out loud
    Britain are the best in my opinion for Sit coms and Drama, other countries are rubbish IMO

    Red Dwarf was very funny, back in its day

    I also loved Blackadder.

    My all time favourite is Are You Being Served?

    I'm also fond of, 'Allo 'Allo, LOTSW (until Russ Abbott & June Whitfield showed up) The Golden Girls, Bottom, Steptoe & Son, Dad's Army, You Rang M'Lord?, Alf Garnet, Little Britain, Blackadder (especially Series 3). And a quite a few others.

    I've gone right off the likes of Only Fools & Horses because it is forever repeated on the likes of UKGold and quite a few of us are sick of the sight of it.
    BEST EVER WINS WON IN ORDER (so far) = Sony Camcorder, 32" lcd telly, micro ipod hifi, Ipod Nano, Playstation 3, Andrex Jackpup, Holiday to USA, nintendo wii, Liverpool vs Everton tickets, £250 Reward Your thirst, £500 Pepsi, p&o rotterdam trip, perfume hamper, Dr Who stamp set, steam cleaner.

    comping = nowt more thrillin' than winnin'

    Father Ted, Gavin & Stacey, Dinnerladies, Only Fools & Horses, the Royle Family. I'm sure there are more but these are the ones that I still watch if they are on repeat.

    The Army Game and Bootsie and Snudge, that is going back some. It was one of my late fathers favourites. He also liked Hogans Heroes. I could never understand why as he spent a lot of the war in a POW camp

    Then I went right off her when I saw her in Rosemary and Thyme and realised she'd had a facelift and /or botox.

    Why in God's name do they do it? It makes them look awful! Certainly doesn't make them look younger.
