Are you saying Gavin should be nominated for SPOTY?

last night's episode was one of the best comedy shows i've seen - genius.

never used to bother watching it that often, but was sold after the xmas special last year.

Last night was far better than last week.

Catch the first series if you can. Very funny.

Like The Office, they're taking it to the USA, though with American actors.
Not sure if they can create the same type of characters/comedy in the US, or if they will find it funny.

that's interesting TRFC Kev, hard to see the americans getting it, but thought the same about the office and think their version has become a watchable show.

might get the first two seasons on dvd.

I quite like that thing with Lee Mack and Tim Vine.

Admittedly it feels very contrived but there are some good lines in it.

Darren I'm very surprised at Extras being so far down your list! Unless that's your real name that is.

That's the problem when I've tried to watch it.
I can't stand any of the people in it apart from Alison Steadman.

I DONT GET GAVIN AND STACEY!!
Report TheMadness December 5, 2009 10:52 AM GMT
I would probably sit down and watch it if it weren't for that James corden fella having put me off anything with him in it for life.

Can I just add... Fawlty Towers is crap.

I find it hard to believe Armstrong and Miller has ever been funny
Report johnnyrant December 9, 2009 9:47 AM GMT
you are missing 2 gems from those recent top comedy lists:

The In-Betweeners &
Max & Paddy

how about a new list for all-time worst comedies:

I'll start with:

Dinnerladies
Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps
Last Of The Summer Wine

but by some distance the worst comedy I've ever seen:
