    Still Game

    Mrs Brown

    My Family

    Fawlty Towers

    Little Britain

    Absolutely Fabulous

    Bottom

    The Young Ones

    Coupling

    I like Basil... he's a hoot. Here in America we never saw the second season, so I had a few 'new' laughs with that one!

    I will look for Fools and Horses tonite. :)

    Thanks!

    Have you sees Sex Education? (Not BBC, on Netflix)

    I've never seen Mrs. Brown.

    Does she have a Lovely Daughter?

    Mrs Brown is an Irishman playing a role with yes, a lovely daughter, but several daft sons.

    Funny... yes. Irish... yes. Strange... yes!
