Top Ten Best Sitcoms of All Time « see full list

Only Fools and Horses


Just pure comedy genius is easily the worlds best sitcom ever written a masterpiece the likes of which will never be seen again R.I. P JOHN SULLIVAN amazing acting every character is believable as a real person and easy to relate to watched every episode more than 50 times and still laugh at every one
Hilarious and a prime example of British comedy at its best. This show should easily be in the top 5 sitcoms, and is one of my personal favourites.
I've watched this sitcom at least 10 times now and I laugh a little bit harder every time... Best of all time by far! Needs no proof or vote for it, simply is!
I like friends, HIMYM, Seinfeld but this british show, not very well known in America tops em all. Funniest show Ever.
This should be number one. Its the best sitcom of all time. You can't beat the characters and the pure genius of John Sullivan
it's genius! every episode is pure comic wonder, and should be no. 1 on the list
Priceless comedy genius! The genius is in using characters based on real life people with real life problems who dream of a better life, filmed in real settings. No current sitcoms compare! Acting is faultless. Lovely jubbly!
Not offensive but funny that is a real humor and not American racist shows
The greatest ever by far, if it was an american show it would be top.
What? "Friends" is funny only if you're 2 year old with mental retardation.
The fact that Family Guy is above THIS makes me ashamed to be human...
Friends? I guess this is an American site... If you like unrealistic plots, glossy stereotypes and frankly shocking acting then fine, watch friends. For real comedy Ofah every time
How can American programmes be classed as comedy?
Frankly this should be number 1.
Just the Greatest of all time
Best british humor ever
Brilliant series, lost a little something from season 6 when they moved to 50 minute episodes, but when John Sulivan was on form, he was a genius writer.
Huh? Never heard of it.
Best acting, punchlines, wit and story-line. Del Boy is and will always be an icon. Simply the best. Go on, you know it makes sense, you plonkers.
This should be way higher than it is. This show would top How I Met Your Mother etc. Any day.
Thank you and goodbye
One of the best and also DadÂ's Army, Fawlty towers and Blackadder.
Also AllĂ' AllĂ' and Keeping up Appearances.
No doubt at all in my mind the best comedy series of all, timeless humour.
Should be in the top 5 sitcoms.
Why is it on 27 place it was awesome and it still is awesome greatest sticom ener
This should be number one for sure! No jokes about sex and no swearing for cheap laughs, it was just funny for its great humour and for being relatable.
Who doesn't think a get rich quick scheme gone wrong is hilarious?
Every episode was funny and that's almost impossible for a show.
Rodney and Del Boy were some of the finest examples of comedic genius.
British comedy is the greatest, Only Fools and Horses being the best of the bunch.

RIP Roger Lloyd-Pack, the actor who played Trigger, one of T.V. 's greatest.
Classic British sitcom starring Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst as the Trotter brothers Del Boy and Rodney.
Hugely influential, and a comedy which grabbed the hearts of a nation. Widely regarded as the UK's best loved sitcom, written by John Sullivan, "Only Fools And Horses" really is as good as it gets.

My top 10 would be:
1. Only Fools And Horses
2. The Office (Gervais' & Merchant's UK version, rather than the dire and appalling US re-make...)
3. Fawlty Towers
4. Dad's Army
5. The Royle Family
6. 'Allo 'Allo
7. The League Of Gentlemen
8. The Middle
9. Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em
10. Keeping Up Appearances

I wouldn't tend to label The Simpsons and Family Guy as sitcoms, but if they are, then they'd be right up there too.

Also, not too sure if "The League Of Gentlemen" (British classic dark comedy from late 90's early 2000's) is technically a sitcom, or just a sketch show with a continuity theme. So, if not eligible for the list, I'd stick "The Inbetweeners" (UK version! ) into my top 10 instead.

Keep laughing.
