Just re-watching all eps - still class, one of the few 90's comedies still worth watching. Also just watched the film spin off 'Guest House Paradiso' thought it was utter wank at the time, and guess what, it still is - awful!! Even worse than 'Sex Lives of the Potato Men' and that's saying something.

May I say, that's a smashing blouse you're wearing.....

True - still class. OK apart from Bottom, Men Behaving Badly, Blackadder, People Like Us, Perfect World, what have the 90's ever done for us?

Gosh, was BlackAdder really as late as the 90s?

No 1989 was the last. I'm not doing very well am I?

Bottom should have been crap - but somehow it worked. Genius. The wife loved it as well - she has a very basic sense of humour.

Not sure if it was after the 90s, but Black Books is one of my favourites.

I didn't find Green Wing great, it was a bit too random for me.

Father Ted
Big Train (first series)
The Royle Family (a couple of specials are post 90s)


Psychoville started in 2009, Nighty Night 2004, Green Wing 2004 and Perfect World in 2000, which is stretching the 90s a bit.

Another vote for Bottom anyway. Under-rated.

Also, Reeves & Mortimer's heyday was in the 90s, though they did some stuff at the end of the 80s and up to quite recently. The bit where they were really funny was in the 90s anyway. Great decade. My favourite out of the 6 decades I've been alive in so far (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s & 10s), although I can't say I remember much about the 60s (which is a good thing because, apparently, if you can remember the 60s then you weren't there).

Peep Show is number one, think its the 00's though.

I caught a few minutes of some sit com on bbc one which was absolutely awful starring that talented cretin Lee Mack.

I still enjoy it, I remember Jasper Carrot doing an interview once and he was taking the micky out of Powell being a "proper Thespian" after his work with the RSC

I d/l all these classics from a thebox.bz - if it was British, it's on there. I have 'Perfect World' from there, never thought I'd see it again - the one with Paul Kaye aka Dennis Pennis, not as good as it was though!!

It's invite only, and you have to seed back or you get chopped off. I have some invites but like I said they're a bit strict and if anyone I've invited has a crap ratio and gets the chop - they take it off my ratio!

Still it does ensure that all files have plenty of seeders and peers.

I didn't find Green Wing great, it was a bit too random for me.

never got Black Books, the mighty boosh, Father Ted or the IT Crowd - think they are written by the same crowd but dont find any of them funny - at all

best sitcoms:

Blackadder
Red Dwarf
Peep Show
Partridge
The Office
Young Ones
Bottom
Green Wing
Arrested Development (US)


Sketch Shows:
Big Train (Season 1)
Fast Show
Day Today
Brass Eye

Father Ted was brilliant. It was a damn shame he passed away.

Black books had it's moments as well.

Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Peep Show and The Office were all excellent. Never saw Green Wing.

Big Train (first series)



agreed, second series was cack- think it was because half the writing team left (the funny half)
