    I love how the rest of the cast are nearly doubled over trying to stifle their laughs.

    Bailey Quarters, Johnny Fever(BOOGER!), and Venus Flytrap were great characters.

    Hard to believe that no one's mentioned SCTV/Second City? So many people got their start there.

    I can't believe I forgot Brooklyn 99. I love that show. Holt is awesome and I have a mad crush on Rosa.

    Monty Pytheon
    Fawlty Towers
    The IT crowd
    Red Dwarf
    The Office
    Police Squad
    'Allo 'allo

    Most of the above didn't go on too long which IMHO is the problem I have with a lot of modern comedy series; they don't seem to know when to stop.

    * (For non UK readers): Tony Robinson (aka 'Baldrick') does a serious TV series called 'Time team' where they excavate archaeological sites. I can't watch it without expecting him to have a 'cunning plan' or make some other 'Baldrick' comment. I've also seen an old Leslie Nielson film where he was playing a serious role and I had the same problem. :oops:

    Tony also did a series on the worst jobs in history. Almost all of them involved excrement of some sort.

    I have the same thoughts when watching Hugh Laurie in a serious role. After seeing him on Blackadder, it's difficult to see him in another light.
