What do you think about this list so far? Mr Don and Mr George is a bit left-field?
Didn't I read that zooo hates Bread?

Don't think that was me!

I used to fancy the silly poet one, I think.

I've never seen 'Red Dwarf', apart from the odd clips that appear now and again on shows about sitcom. It looks dreadful.

I liked 'Bread' until the original Joey left, after which it just wasn't the same.

I watched a little of 'Black Books' but couldn't see anything very funny about it. The same goes for Dylan Moran's stand-up act.

"Bluestone 42" wasn't at all bad in itself but it must inevitably be compared with "M.A.S.H" and that's rather like comparing Shakin' Stevens with Elvis.

The award for greatest-ever sitcom might reasonably be awarded to "Allo! Allo!".

Of course all comedy is subjective but I'm not sure a man who owns up to writing Miranda and episodes of My Hero and My Family can be considered an expert on what's funny!
