Good sitcoms and comedy shows?

Postby xzebrasx » Mon Sep 14, 2009 6:12 pm

I'm looking for something to cheer me up in the evening. I've seen:

- The Simpsons (some)
- Family Guy (all 7 seasons)
- The Faulty Towers (all episodes)
- Brass Eye (all episodes)
- The IT Crowd (all episodes)
- Mr. Bean (all episodes)
- Scrubs (some)

Any ideas?

xzebrasx, you know my taste is flawless:

-The Simpsons (seasons 3-9)
-Blackadder
-Eastbound & Down
-It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
-Trailer Park Boys
-Arrested Development
-Seinfeld
-Curb Your Enthusiasm
-Brass Eye/The Day Today
-30 Rock
-The Office (UK)
-selected South Park seasons

absolutely avoid American Dad. I can link you to a good website that has 75% of the above through PM if you want?

Nah Simpsons is piss poor these days! Family Guy walks all over it! But Seinfeld on the other hand, very old but still TV gold!

O god i fogot!!!!

The other day i was watching a tv show my roomate watches and i am also kinda into even though i used to think that it was lame: Sons of anarchy (
a show about motorcycle gangs( me and myroomate ride) not in gangs though. yet.).
On this show last week and i quote " i dont want him to be some vegan pussy" she said this because a doctor told her they need to put her baby on some type of formula. the doctor replied with a smart remark about having a wife beater (a white tank top under shirt) bib on. lol
i thought it was slightly funny for a second then realize that was a stereo
type and a sexist thing to say and then became angered with the show.

Did anyone see it?

Hey, ilovecake, I never knew there were Canadians watching Coronation Street. :D

I've never seen a lot of the series mentioned so far.

My favourites;

League of Gentlemen. Series 1 & 2 only
Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister
The Good Life
Father Ted
Worcestershire's fastest veteran vegan mountain bike endurance racer with a beard.
Angry Middle Aged Man

Note I said seasons 3-9!! Of course only pre-teens bother watching the shit it is nowadays.
Family Guy is abysmal TV. You can watch one episode and have seen it all. Every joke is "remember that time when..." *cue shitty, topical, unfunny flashback*
I'd rate Family Guy fans on a par with people who hate Rocky movies! Sick individuals!
"I've been doing a lot of running, swimming, cycling, well, I mean, you know how it is..."

-"NO. Actually I don't know, I play real sports, I'm not trying to be the best at exercising."

Yeah, but it's still funny as fuck.

Anyone watch The IT Crowd? Good stuff: no repetitive jokes, solid acting and all that. It's a pitty Christopher Morris' character commited suicide in the first season, though.
