Could we include favourite TV comedy series?
I have a few, mainly British. Favourite US comedy: LA Law; the whole cast is great, especially William Shatner, James Spader and Candice Bergen..
UK; Steptoe and Son, and Till Death Us Do Part.
But, hands down best TV comedy series of all time in my opinion :"Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister" I have them all on DVD, and still watch them sometimes. Probably helps a lot that I was a civil servant most of my working life. The two series go together to make a savage satire of the civil service, certainly in England and Australia, and I suspect of just about any large bureaucracy
--- and Bernard pipes up "Sun readers don't care who runs the country as long as she has big tits "Yes Prime/Minister is superb, laugh-out-loud comedy. Superb actors, great script. The Key is one of my favourites, as is the one Sir Humphrey is indiscreet in a radio interview, and Bernard telling the press that the PM is above the law and of course Hacker describing the atrributes of newspaper readers.
