    Great Avatar For This Group

    Search For The Holy Grail - What a great movie so many laughs. I remember the scene the avatar picture is from fondly. The thing I loved about the movie was the guy running behind the knights on their pretend horses clapping the cocoanut shells together to make the sound the...

    It Doesn't Get Better Than This

    My favorite show of all time is Red Dwarf. I can't tell you how many nights I've watched the show on DVD just because there is nothing else on tv that interests me.

    said Fred' (1962). Amusing novelty apparently inspired by the antics of a bunch of removal men encountered by songwriter Myles Rudge when he moved house (or, at least, attempted to...). Shifting a piano turned out to be beyond their capabilities. Key to much British humour...

    Last Of The Summer Wine

    Saturday night on PBS Idaho they play Are You Being Served, Keeping Up Appearances, Last of the Summer Wine (my fav), the Red Green Show (Canadian ), and Red Dwarf.  It's the best night of TV all week!

    Anyone Got "Room For a Pony?"

    My favorite British comedy is Keeping Up Appearances. My whole family has come to love Hyacinth and her entourage. The hilarious predicaments are mostly due to an unrelenting quest to climb the social ladder. Since my own ladder is missing several key rungs, I can only watch...

    "i Say, Ha Ha, Ah Hah-dley Ha"

    What can I say? I love Monty Python, and watching John Cleese freak out on Fawlty Towers. I think Rowan Atkinson is a comic genius, not just Mr. Bean, but Black Adder. I also loved Fry and Laurie, absolutely hilarious! Hugh Laurie is hilarious, and he and Steven Fry did Jeeves...

    British Humour

    I love the Morcambe and Wise, Breakfast scene. It's performed to the "********" tune and so funny. I also love One Foot in the Grave, with Richard Wilson as Victor Meldrew. Coronation Street is a long running soap (50 years in2010) and full of the dry wit of the...

    I adore how the British culture values the

    most wittiest insult. They can say something so wickedly cutting & if you aren't quick enough, you'd never know you were handed your *** in your hat.

    Alan Partridge is my fav!

    I only recently got into the show and I love it! He's so hilare and awkwardly sexy. It's opened me up to more shows like it and i cant wait to go HAM and just watch them all! If anyone knows some really good ones let me know! x)
