    Default We haven't done TV comedies yet

    Popular Music and Films look to be nearly finished so should we do TV comedy next? Top 10 or 15 as you like but remember On the Buses & Love Thy Neighbour will lose you points; anything from 1955 to 2020, I suppose unless anyone does a top 5 or so by the decade, (that'll get harder as time passes ). Live action only so no Family Guy or Rick & Morty yheeeees Rick or the amazing The Simpsons (cartoons next?), UK or US accepted or split them up if you want.

    Still working on a list
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    For a new comedy "Meet the Richardsons" given the mocumentaries this really does make you laugh. https://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/shows/me...SAAEgKrlfD_BwE
