    My favorite ones are Peep Show, Red Dwarf, Gavin & Stacey, As Time Goes By, The Vicar of Dibley, Last of the Summer Wine, Open All Hours, The Manor Born, Detectorists and my absolute favorite is Rising Damp. I highly recommend Rising Damp. It is an absolute hysterical riot. :)

    I only like a couple British shows. Most of their “entertainment” is garbage.

    I appreciate the shows I like, not a fan of a lot of it though

    Mrs Browns Boys, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, The IT Crowd are all favourites. Some of the best American TV shows are versions of UK shows, like Shameless, The Office

    They have a lot of excellent stuff. And a lot of stuffy garbage

    I like those (the American versions). I’m actually watching Shameless again right now. I put it on while I exercise.

    Shameless is one of my favourite shows - the UK version is okay, but William H Macy makes the show so much better
