Opinion: top TV comedies 2019

Mostly below, in no particular order, are the shows that simply made me laugh the most this year. Shows that totally tickled my funny bone first and didn't necessarily do anything else.

TV review: The Cockfields, episode three, Gold

This has been a real gem. It's a shame it is only a trilogy, but in those three episodes we have really got to know the Cockfield clan. Yes, they might be a bunch of Isle of Wight oddballs, but they are - mostly - a bunch of very sympathetic, engaging Isle of Wight oddballs.

TV review: The Cockfields, episode two, Gold

There were no major dramas in the first instalment of this three-part comedy and there are none in the gloriously mundane second part either. Unless you count a minor altercation with a neighbour (Dan Renton Skinner) about a hedge.

TV review: The Cockfields, series 1, episode 1

I can't wait to see what happens to them next, even if it isn't very much at all.

TV review: The Cockfields, Gold

I've only seen the first episode though - maybe everything goes pear-shaped in the next two parts. I'll certainly be watching to find out.

The Cockfields: the Royles with a middle class makeover

Thank gawd it's not just my family, then. The Cockfields (Gold), a three-part sitcom about a bloke taking his girlfriend home to meet his parents, is crammed with lines so true to life, it sometimes felt like a documentary.
