Last of the Summer Wine is probably my all time favorite.  Those old coots are absolutely hilarious.  Are You Being Served is a very close second though.  All those sarcastic put-downs kept me laughing for many seasons.

Monty Python is kind of in a class by itself.

Honorable mentions: Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Absolutely Fabulous

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Only Fools & Horses.  it was voted best UK comedy of all time in a tv thing a while back. I think it's pretty good but wouldn't put it in my top 10.

I'm also surprised how popular the show My Hero appears to be in the US. it was barely noticed over here and mainly considered a flop!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
