Then this is my favorite UK comedy, probably top 5 of my all time favorite shows ever...and i love that is seemingly never ending, can't wait for the new series in 2012.

Jennifer Saunders writing is so fantastic, super witty. "Bubble" is one of the best characters ever written or seen
i
just thinking about her.

Penelope Keith is great in that. It's called 'The Good Life' in the UK - the US changed the title there

I know I can't believe it's coming back Jennifer is also thinking about doing an AbFab movie It's in my top 3 all time, although I prefer the ones from 1992 through 1996 the most.

Although I quite liked Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, I have to say that it was maybe a bit overrated. Especially Sir Bumphrey was really annoying with his pompous appearence. And you could see miles away that he wasn't a "ladies man". The opening titles and opening music was also really stupid and trying to be satirical.
yeah! Black Adder is my fave comedy series ever, and Rowan has to be my fave comic of all time, tho his Mr. Bean stuff is very watered down. Love 'Allo 'Allo as well.

They always think you have to win everything, it always needs to be a success story, and if it's not obviously what is the point. Maybe you have to go back and think, Why have I started playing tennis? Because I just like it. It's actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don't get that ever."

Rowan was simply brilliant in Blackadder and also his live shows were so funny. But I was never really into Mr. Bean and also these Johnny English films were very disappointing. A great comic like him must have realized while reading the scripts that it's really nothing special. I wonder how many times did he demand a re-write. The problem with Johnny English is that it's just not funny. Simple as that.

I'm usually not up for British sketch shows, but this one's pretty awesome.

The evil vicar is among my absolute favorite sketches from that show. Absolutely priceless!

Re: Vintage British comedy

3 pages and no mention of "keeping up appearances?" hyacinth bucket is a legend.

I've recently been watching the series, "worst week of my life." Predictable, but still has the funniest gags ive seen in series.
