Best British Sitcoms
The Top Ten
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!
I love this list!
The older ones are so much better aren't they? I have most of these listed on boxset. I'm glad such a classic as Steptoe And Son took gold. - Britgirl
This actually was the inspiration for Sanford and Son. 'Nuther good thing we got from the Brits:).
Should easily be number 1
Blackadder and Baldrick together it brilliant
Sadly only 25 episodes were made since the actor who played ted died
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.
Original and innovative, a modern classic.
To describe this show in one word, it would be: Brilliant!
Greatest UK sitcom, so underrated!
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!
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!
Great show. - AdamDestructorJr.
Love it love it love it! Semi-improvised gives it realness and its completely hilarious!
Hugh Dennis all the way!
Outnumbered is funny and entertaining, and it is entertaining to see from a different perspective, and see what a hassil it is for the parents.
Hilarious comedy. Best comediennes of all.
Very funny and well written
