Disagree with the first one
(It's easier than saying I agree with Aaron.)

But I'm with you on point number 2

Hmm, I hated
Dinnerladies
Men Behaving Badly
The Royle Family
Early Doors
Green Wing
The IT Crowd
Spaced
But I do believe a lot of clueless people say they loved them! :O
So I think these qualify as Marmite sitcoms.

At university I shared a house with somebody who flew into a rage when Only Fools And Horses was on. He absolutely hated it.

CL is, to our very great shame, one of Britain's most-underrated sitcom writers.

When people talk about writers that re-shaped British TV, her name is inexplicably often absent from the list.

A British sitcom about a married woman having an affair? That was ground-breaking television.

Little Britain, or anything with Harry Enfield/Paul Whitehouse?


Yeah, and Armstrong and Miller as well.

Many people think those shows are hillarious, but I see them, I find them, using what Charlie Brooker said on You Have Been Watching to describe what he thought of Glee, so f***ing annoying, that it's not long before I want to harm anyone watching them, involved in their production, or simply reflected in the screen!
