Jasper Carrot's truely heinous 'All About Me' where he is married to an indian woman and they both have their own kids.. it's the most sickening attempt at political correctness I have ever seen, it is so unfunny it beggars believe. You HAVE to watch it.

also filed under SH!TE would be:

2 pints of lager and a packet of my arse

My Hero (featuring the same unfunny Irish Tw@t from Father Dead)

The Vicar of Weightwatchers

American abomination 'The War At Home'

new American dross '2 Broke Girls'

also '2 and a Half Men' which is so bad I projectile vomit blood all over the screen if I accidentally flick to a channel showing it.

ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING WITH THE BO SELECTA GUY .. I hope he is trampled to death by angry cattle, he is an absolute C-U-N-T.
Basically anything in the 7:30 friday night slot on BBC One is guaranteed to be terrible. Vapid, empty, unfunny, unoriginal garbage like My Family, My Hero, that thing with the bloke out of Mock the Week.

The BBC must have a department that specialises in "family" comedy.
My Family was OK, the last series was definitely one too many - including making one character gay.

By that thing with the bloke out of Mock The Week I assume you mean Outnumbered? Now that I have liked from series 1, particularly when you know the kids are improvising and the adults have to work with it.

But I also loathe Leigh Francis and his "creations". Proper censored.

And yep, Serafinowicz is a comedy genius. Brilliant impressionist too - I heard Wogan trying to interview him on the radio, and you couldn't tell them apart.

American sitcoms need to take note of British sitcoms like spaced and know when something has run its course.

Big bang should have tied it all up by the end of the 3rd series.

I'd agree with that comment, but it's just so damn watchable I could watch it every day. The fourth season was noticeably worse (although still good), and now season 5, also watchable and funny, is definitely the worst so far, with some of the characters changing significantly.

I know people buy into this "Fawlty Towers only did twelve episodes" theory, but that's not how American TV works.

And to go back to what ChipTune was saying, I like the fact the characters are growing and the relationships are changing so much.

I find the american sitcom obsession of pairing off all the characters so annoying.

e.g. Big Bang Theory .. penny is an irritating bimbo who constantly just barges in the apartment to eat their food.. shes always drunk, and is shown to like crap movies etc, yet she is supposed to represent the ultimate achievement for a 'geeky' man in his late twenties. Leonard has had better looking women (the random chick from the comic bookstore for example) with much more suitable personalities. yet I have a horrible feeling the series will build up to them getting back together.

This.

Look at The Office. Genius. But Ricky Gervais at Stephen Merchant decided it was time to end it so they did. They could easily have got another series out of it, and have Brent leave at the end of series 3 instead of 2. Now compare that to the The Office, An American Workplace. Theyre milking that to death. 8 seasons down, thats a lot of episodes. I think American TV flogs a show until its on its last legs and not a minute sooner. Just look at King Of The Hill. Im a massive Mike Judge fan but the last couple of seasons were dire.

I love big bang. I think it's genuinely evolving with each series as well. Season 5 was particularly ace.
