Only one I can think of that hasn't been mentioned is Vicar of Dibley.
Yes also quite good...I LOVE the first Christmas episode. Alice's mom steals the show.
My other favorites... - Ab Fab (but primarily anything BEFORE Last Shout. It just doesn't seem the same from 1996 on. BTW did I mention I met Joanna Lumley?) - Coupling (Tip 1: don't accidentally open an NBC version episode. Tip 2: Stick with the first 3 seasons, though even with the lack of Jeff, S4 is decent and has Steve's line essentially burying NBC...) - Brittas Empire (I know everyone knows Chris Barrie for being Rimmer, but this is an underrated gem of a show) - Worst Week of my Life (kind of a one-joke show; i.e. Howard offers to help with something and ends up screwing up everything beyond repair. Rinse, repeat. But still entertaining, AND it has my Sarah Alexander in it too) - Mongrels (a more recent show, think Family Guy meets puppet animals...though that might turn off some people...) - Fawlty Towers - Mr. Bean - Blackadder series - Are You Being Served? (But please, please, PLEASE stop before Trevor Bannister leaves...) - Keeping Up Appearances (I used to have a crush on the second and longer-used Rose...then I found out she was A) older and B) dead)

NATHAN BARLEY NIGHTINGALES PETE VERSUS LIFE PETS (EXACTLY LIKE MONGROLS) SEAN'S SHOW (SEAN HUGHES JOINT )
Are you being served-This is the show that got me into UK sitcoms. The Young Ones-Still one of the funniest shows ever. Filthy Rich and Catflap-Most of the same cast as The young ones. Bottom-The Halloween episode is one of the funniest shows so far. Black Adder-Got the complete series set for $3 and marathoned it in 3 days. A fun and funny trip through history. Ban the Filth-A one season mockumentary. With a bunch of elderly women griping about all the filth being aired on the various BBC channels.
