It is better to give than to receive, my friend. You shall learn that in time.


That is what the tax people say.

It's tough to call as each decade has given us some great comedy. When I look at the different decades I would probably have to go with the 70s as producing some of the better, most enduring comedies. But even this is a sweeping statement and negates some of the gold that other decades have spewed.

But although I think the 70s is da biz, I'm going to give respect to the 1980s. Here are some gems from that decade:

Yes Minister/Prime, The Young Ones, Allo Allo, Red Dwarf, Blackadder, The New Statesman, Spitting Image, Only Fools & Horses, Who's Line is it Anyway?, Birds of a Feather, Bread, Brush Strokes, Dear John, Hi-De-Hi, The Kenny Everett Television Show, Just Good Friends, Dear Ladies

The Kenny Everett Television Show is IMO miles above any sketch show we've had in the past 10 years or so.

Correct. It'd have a big job to better The Kenny Everett Television Show though.

I wondered why my ears suddenly started bleeding - it was you who dared say the ultimate curse word: Blunder.

Aaron - you remember - it's the show I called "the worst comedy in at least twenty years". It was terrible, terrible, terrible! Why David Mitchell agreed to be in it I'll never know!
