Sorry, I voted for none of the above, as my favorite is not up there. Keeping up Appearances is my absolute favorite, Patricia Routledge is hilarious!!!

Not a bad choice at all!

However, I put the list together to include those generally regarded as "classic" Britcoms. I don't think 'Keeping Up Appearances' quite makes the list.

Well then, since you are forcing me (kidding) to choose one of the above, it has to be The Good Life.
After that would be Fawlty Towers.

I voted for Fawlty Towers.....but I've never seen it. I really like "The Good Life" instead. I just watched it on PBS last night and thought it was quite good.

Only Fools & Horses
for sure


Fawlty Towers is way overrated imho, just because it's the only show that was shown in US, not that I don't like it.

There are also
Allo Allo
Mr. Bean

Keeping Up Appearances would also get my vote as best BritCom ever!!! Patricia Routledge is the UK's version of Lucille Ball!!!

Then how do you know if it's any good? LOL

I didn't include COUPLING in the original poll as I had to draw the line somewhere and, to be honest, it can hardly be labelled a "classic" yet.

I voted for Mr. Bean. That show is so hilarious! I also like the show Last Of The Summer Wine, too. There was one episode I saw where these cops were sitting in their car and those four guys ran by with a bathtub over their heads with a moose head sticking out. It was so funny!
