Yes Minister - one of the best ever: the sequel, Yes, Prime Minister, was not nearly as good.
The Day Today - the original TV home of Alan Partidge - descendant of Radio 4's On The Hour and progenitor of Brasseye. "This
is the NEWS! Happy now?"
Father Ted - "THRRRINK! FECK! GIRRLS!"
And, as previously mentioned, Green Wing, The IT Crowd. "Why don't we try and sort out your bullying problem with some role play?" "Yes! It
really helped me learn to buy sandwiches!"
Black Books, Spaced, The Fast Show...
And the Harry and Paul Show is a real return to form.
Actually there's one I remember from when I was a kid in the early seventies, seems to have disappeared without trace. It was on the beeb, if memory
serves, and was set entirely in the teachers' common room in a school. One thing I remember is they hated the headmaster so much that if his name
was mentioned, you had to pay a fine, so he became known as "money-in-the-box".
Anyone remember that one?
