Top 10 Best British Sitcoms (Britcoms)
The Top Ten
A very funny one, this!
Why do you call Sitcoms from the UK British sitcoms they should be just called sitcoms not British Sitcoms. We should call sitcoms from USA American Sitcoms.
Boycie and Trigger are by far the funniest characters along with Del and Rodney.
Very well written, laughs every minute, but has some depth and strong storyline.
Performed brilliantly and some of the best comedic timing ever performed on British television.
This is truly hilarious, all I need to say is "Don't tell him pike." "You stupid Boy" "Don't panic! " "It's OK Taffy" and many more!
Sadly only 25 episodes were made since the actor who played ted died
Down with this sort of ranking. Up vote now
Top 10 ( no particular order)
1. Still Game
2. Rab C Nesbitt
3. Only Fools and Horses
4. Fawlty Towers
5. One Foot in the Grave
6. Father Ted
7. Rising Damp
8. The Inbetweeners
9. 2 Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps
10. Benidorm (first 3 seasons)
This is a classic. John Cleese has never made anything quite the same since or before. This deserves to be number one because it didn't just have clever one-liners (like BlackAdder, though BlackAdder deserves second spot), humorous plots, and build up jokes, but it includes all of those themes. This is just fantastic.
Who hates Fawlty Towers?!?! One of the most unique and hilarious comedies of its time; wish it was still going.
This is a GENIUS show of all-time! It's up there with Keeping Up Appearances; if anything, these two should be tied as #1!
"I don't believe it! Only #2! " And that was Britgirl's first comment.
I don't believe it! Only #2?

A legend was born.
To describe this show in one word, it would be: Brilliant!
Original and innovative, a modern classic.
Should easily be number 1
Blackadder and Baldrick together it brilliant
A cult classic
Red Dwarf is the only sci-fi in this list! It provides some of the most funny and ridiculous situations, and it's unique in so many aspects. The characters rock, and the series itself really develops into different styles as it moves on. My favourite series ever!
Red Dwarf is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. It's unique, hilarious and great to watch again and again. You never get bored. Best comedy in the world!
British comedy is always either Red Dwarf or inept by comparison. But Blackadder is funny.
Masterly. Brilliant writing and exceptional acting - comedic timing and nuance. Transformed the standard of sitcoms by refusing to go for cheap laughs, smut and low intelligence.
This is one of the best T.V. sitcoms. Intriquing storylines and wonderful insights on human nature at its best and worst in the midst of politics!
