Mine

The Office
Phoenix Nights
Blackadder
Fawlty Towers
Monty Python's Flying Circus
Early Doors
Knowing Me Knowing You/I'm Alan Partridge
Peep Show
Extras
This Country

I think the top two are my favourites because I find them so relatable, you feel like you have met a lot of the characters. Only Fools and Horses usually gets picked top when they put it to a vote, and I do enjoy it when it's on, but I can't pick a series who's greatest moment is someone falling over. Special mention to Vic and Bob, I probably should have found a place for Shooting Stars in there somewhere.

Steptoe and Son (not # 1 for me, but of it's time and funny)
Dad's Army (as above)
One Foot in the Grave (Sponsored by RLFans?) :lol:
Porridge #1 for me
Till death us do part (no comment, unless ypu like racism and xenophobia)
Fawlty Towers #2, Cleese knew when to stop
The Royle Family (have a word, it's crap)
Rising Damp (as above)
Blackadder (#3)
Hancock's half hour (not a sitcom)

I wouldn't include The Office in any list as Gervais is a (insert word here), likewise Phoenix Nights because of Peter Kay, I would chuck Butterflies, Lovejoy lots of others in there, Red Dwarf, Minder. One thing is for certain, all of them were better than the American garbage we have to flick past now.
