Quite like the big bang theory, if you like nerdy humour. It also has some eye candy which helps.

Don't think there's been a decent one since Only fools and Horses.

Not going out is weak and predictable. There's nothing really, Karl Pilkington was the last thing I watched which made me laugh.

Do Father Ted and Phoenix Nights count as sit-coms?

I'm not watching any sit coms just now but this is probably the funniest/mentalist bloke on TV for me right now. Shelby Stanga from Ax Wars.




He's getting his own series soon as well.

I think Miranda is quite funny in a cheesy way, worryingly I think I might actually fancy her

Vicar of dibley was hilarious.

Don't get the attraction of Mrs. Brown's Boys at all. The jokes are virtually announced 5 minutes before they are delivered and the visual aspect of them reminds me of bad Benny Hill style humour. It's comedy for the easily pleased in my book and about 40 years out of date!

Not Going Out on the other hand is a very well written and acted sharp sit-com albeit with some jokes that don't work. The last series was lame as the loss of Tim Vine has killed the dynamic, but series 2-5 are generally very funny aside from when Bobby Ball is in it... I find him unwatchable!

Comedy is a very subjective thing though. Friends is a great example. I used to hear people go on about it all the time so decided to give it a go. I can honestly say I have never watched a programme as bad.... poor acting, jokes delivered with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, bad writing, completely stupid situations.... just utterly utrkly awful in every way! Yet people love it! Oh well!
