Love so many of these, but Peep Show and Black Books are the favourites. Spaced, The Thick of It, Alan Partridge, Saxondale...not too keen on The Office oddly enough (I like Extras, so perhaps I should just give The Office more time)  and never liked The IT Crowd.

Good thing it's limited to sitcoms. With British sketch shows included my hovercraft would overflow with eels.

Someone recommended I watch Black Books, but until now I'd forgotten the name.  Thanks to this poll for reminding me..

I just don't watch sitcoms. I used to back when Step by Step and Full House was on, but I was a small kid and had no clue of taste and refinement - something that was extremely lacking in both of these shows.
Come to think of it, I may have caught a few episodes of The Peep Show (I was waiting for the comedy shows that were due afterwards). I guess it was ok, but then again I don't remember anything from it - except for the humour that veered towards the current thirst for 'embarrassing moments'. Ever since 'Meet the Parents' came out, this has been a staple diet of television. Now though it has been transferred onto the reality programs....

Been getting into Spaced lately.  Extras was my favourite.  Loved Saxondale, so I've been meaning to watch

Funny you should mention Saxondale, I just finished the last episode last night on Netflix. Man that is one highly under-rated sitcom! That last season was brilliant, and I had to keep rewinding many scenes over and over again, they had me in stitches. Knock-down hilarious stuff.

It's a terrific show., and that was such a good esiode.  What hooked me immediately when I saw it on TV the first time was hearing Focus.  Cause of it's music angle, it's one of those shows that i would think would be highly popular at a site like this.

I'm going to try to look into all the shows on this list.

Definitely; he's always mentioning Genesis, Floyd, etc. Yes, Focus's music features in some of the shows, as does Jethro Tull.

One more vote for Peep Show, that show is just too good
But I like the IT Crowd allot too.
