DH and I are enjoying a new one (for us), Last Tango in Halifax. It's classified as a drama, but It has some humor in it as well. We've just seen 3 episodes so far.

Thanks for mentioning Single Handed. I love most anything Ireland.
Hubby and I have seen Cracker and loved it. I think we first saw it when we were in Ireland the first time.

I love all the ideas I get from this team for new shows to watch. Have written them down on a list to check availability.

Joyce, I've heard of "Dr. Who" for years, but have never watched an episode. I get the idea that there are several Dr. Who characters, and eras of the show. Where should a newbie start?

Going to netflix to check out the Peep show and Moone Boy. DH and I watched an Irish drama called “Single Handed” that we thought was good.

We're currently watching episodes we can find of “Cracker”. It is not a comedy but certainly has it's moments of dark humor. Several times we've laughed out loud at a comment or situation. Robbie Coltrane does a great job of portraying someone you wouldn't want to be married to, but definitely DOES have his moments of brilliance and wit.

Hubby and I loved Luther.

I've been watching Moone Boy. I love it so much! It is not technically British, but it is Irish, and many lump it into BritCom territory....

I've never seen Luther but I've heard it's fab. Unfortunately the Murdoch's clash with something else - hopefully they'll be repeated.

definitely NOT a British comedy....but British --- DH and I just started watching "Luther". We're about 3 episodes into it and it is definitely holding our attention.

Another one we just finished is "Top of the Lake" set in New Zealand and directed by Jane Campion. It was quite different and we thought it was well done.

Another one I checked out from our local library and have been enjoying is "Murdoch Mysteries" -- set in Toronto in the late 1800's and involves a detective who is using the latest methods to aid in crime-solving. It has it's moments of humor.

I am a terrible Brit Com host. Lately it has all been USA comedies with me - How I Met Your Mother (up to the final series at last, but only to episode 6 so no spoilers please). Also going through my box sets of I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched, and just recently, Melissa and Joey (cos my daughter loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch and it's the same actress).

I have the whole of Jonathan Creek in a box set. I'd classify it as a comedy drama series. It has some really funny scenarios and I love how the main characters play off one another. Doesn't hurt that Alan Davies is kinda cute and cuddly, and Caroline Quentin is one of my fave comedy actresses. Anyone here seen her in Men Behaving Badly?

Been watching Spooks (aka MI-5) lately, which isn't much of a comedy but I like it. and checking out the occasional two faces of mitchell and webb, which is very dark but seems interesting.

DH and I just finished the first season of "Episodes" -- A bit risque' in places -- OK -- well a LOT! lol... It is a UK produced sit com about a couple of successful English comedy writers who happen to be married, and are talked into going to Hollywood to produce an American version of their British hit series. Of course -- they are in for a surprise when their show is totally dismantled. One of the stars is "Joey" from "Friends" -- Matt LeBlanc.

Here's an excerpt from the Wiki site:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Episodes_%28TV
_s
eries%29


"Episodes is a British/American television sitcom created by David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik and produced by Hat Trick Productions. It premiered on Showtime in the United States on 9 January 2011 at 21:30 hrs and on BBC Two in the United Kingdom on 10 January 2011 at 22:00 hrs. The show is about a British husband-and-wife comedy writing team who travel to Hollywood to remake their successful British TV series, with disastrous results.

On 11 December 2013, it was announced that Showtime had renewed Episodes for a fourth season.

Episodes has received positive reviews by critics, with many critics praising the performances of stars Stephen Mangan, Tamsin Greig, and Matt LeBlanc. In 2012, LeBlanc's performance in the series won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy".

We've started season 2 of "Life on Mars" -- the UK version. We're loving it. It's different and quirky and FUNNY! I know they also did a US version of it, but I'm guessing the UK version is better. Might not be typically classified as a BritCom, but it definitely has humor. I recommend it. Netflix has it.

We started a neat one last night called "Life on Mars" -- Looks like it's really going to be good. There was an American series made as well, but somehow I think the UK version is probably better. Never have seen Dr. Who...but think the star played Dr Who.

Here's a link: (We rented it from Netflix)

Only fools and horses

A couple of nights ago I watched a British drama called Fowley's war. It was good!! It's a television series set during and shortly after World War II. I think is was on Friday night. I'll have to check on that!!

We enjoyed watching the movie "The Sapphires" with Chris O'Dowd from the IT Crowd. Australian movie......"It's 1968, and four young, talented Australian Aboriginal girls learn about love, friendship and war when their all girl group The Sapphires entertain the US troops in Vietnam."

Thinking of re-renting OF&H myself. I tried watching The Invisibles (with the wonderful Anthony Head) last weekend but found it to be too slow for my taste. However, there was an advert for another show on the DVD and, though I don't recall the show, it starred David Jason which, of course, got me thinking about Only Fools & Horses. I haven't watched that in years. It would be fun to re-watch.

Jackie -- thanks for the review -- this is something I think we would enjoy. Just checked on netflix and it does not seem to be available...maybe they'll make it available sometime soon now that it is airing on PBS.

We ordered the Mrs Bradley series (all three discs) from netflix. It is quite entertaining and could actually be classified as a comedy with all the quips Diana Riggs makes. I think it was Mischief who recommended it.

Here in Minneapolis our PBS station is running episodes of Rev. This pastor and his wife have a whole community of misfits to deal with. It can be funny, but always leaves me feeling kind of depressed. The Reverend talks to himself, questioning religion and man's responsibility to each other, etc. and all of that is interesting to ponder. He struggles in his occupation; real life is a bummer at times. I really like the music in the background.

We're watching one now (not a comedy) called Inspector Lynley -- We've seen two episodes and like it. No subtitles and some of the slang is a bit hard to understand but still very enjoyable.

At the recommendation of someone here on the team (don't remember who) I oredered the first season of "Rising Damp" from netflix. It was amusing. The series didn't last long from what I read and one of the main characters died very young from a congenital heart defect. I'll probably go back to netflix and try to get the rest of the series.

Not a comedy -- but a relatively new series about chief Inspector "George Gently" -- set in the 60's -- DH and I have enjoyed the first 3 episodes we found at the library.
