Why is British TV better than American TV? IMHO

    I think it depends on what your thing is I preferred watercolours so American cartoons in the 80s and 90s didn't do it for me

    I haven't read all of the thread. As a Brit, some good TV and music has come out of this little island of ours. I don't have TV though now.

    The shows I like come from all over the world. I don't have much of a preference. I just don't get most British humor.

    I'm British and I find English humour to be too silly for me. Things are over the top and stupid. Like in the IT Crowd and the Mighty Boosch the bosses are just childish and daft. I don't find that funny.

    I do like Black Books, that made me laugh. Maybe it depends on the actors. Lead Balloon was quite good too.

    I hate to admit it but Inbetweeners did make me laugh.

    The classics like Porridge, Some Mother's Do Av Em, the Two Ronnie's, Monty Python, I just find them stupid.

    But Frasier was funnier than them all put together.

    There aren't many modern comedies on TV these days, like at all.

    Just remembered some old Scottish comedy. Very silly, but very funny.

    Alan Cumming as you've never seen him before.

    Unfortunately you can't find this series in good quality anywhere.
