When I saw "Little Britain" and heard the narrator, I thought he sounded a lot like Tom Baker. I was quite surprised to see it was Mr Baker! (The credits move awfully quick to catch his name.)

How could I forget Father Ted? One of the best episodes was the one where he kicks the Bishop in the rear end. The look on the Bishop's face was priceless as he was thinking to himself if what had happened just happened. The end of the episode where he is running toward Father Ted like a mad man with his cape flowing had me hurting I was laughing so hard.

Right off the bat, three that stick in my memory as being my favourites are:
1) Jeeves and Wooster - I believe it's a PBS series but is hilarious in many subtle ways. Stephen Fry and Hugh Lawrie are perfect together.

2) Red Dwarf - I discovered this after it had been on for awhile and got to enjoy catching up with the series in a bachnalian feast of pizza and VCRing.

3) a dozen could go here but that one show with the woman who puts on airs named Hyacinth cracks me up to tears.

    How nice! I have Rimmer as my background screen, and have so for years.

    A round of Chicken vin du le for everyone!

    I look forward to this, I hope we don't have to wait to long in the States. Maybe the hold up of all this was when Craig Charles was having a bad time with drugs.....plus he was on some soap opera for a time. Could still be, not sure.

    Thanks for the information!
