John Cleese did the right thing though, stopped it when it was at its peak, something that Only Fools and Horses could have learned from.

We'd have missed a heck of a lot if they'd only done 12 episodes. They nearly canned it after the first series. It had been going for quite a few years before it started looking a bit stale.

Cash and Curry was an outstanding episode in that first series

Fair enough comment, just thought they went on a bit too long with it, where it lost its sparkle.

Bollocks, forgot... That replaces Auf Pet on my list.

Thought the first film was OK.

Worth of note, for me, is Derek (not the individual on here, he's about as amusing as a family death) by Ricky Gervais. Funny and emotional at the same time, very clever.  Heart

I'd also add The Inbetweeners for genuine laugh-out-loud moments the the stray hillock on the catwalk moment.

Fawlty Towers better than both IMHO!
Ripping Yarns excellent too.

FT will never be bettered
It ain't half hot mum was brilliant
In fact I think there at least 10 comedies better than OFAH
Which is a testament to British comedy

I'm not having that It Aint Arf Hot Mom is never a top ten British Comedy. Hi De Hi was better.

Ho dee ho!
