    The Thick of It is spectacular. I'm happy to see someone else posted it here already. There's no character on any show I can think of quite like Malcolm Tucker. (also, Salome, are you British? The Thick of It fans are few and far between in America. I bought the series on amazon.uk, since it isn't available in the States, and watch it on my region-free DVD player. I think it's getting a release here soon.)

    Robin: Malcolm, do you know... how to fix a paper jam?
    Malcolm: I don't know, kill a kid an hour until it sorts itself out?

    Apparently Peter Capaldi and Craig Ferguson used to be in a punk band together. I saw him on Ferguson, and he told a story about a night he and Craig met up after both taking LSD, and neither one knew the other one was on acid.

    Darkplace is exceptionally funny as well. The Mitchell and Webb Look and Peep Show are both pretty funny and on Netflix instant.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    I was discussing British comedy with another member on vent and we came to notice (I believe I did with my superior sensing skills) that British comedy is based mostly on metaphors. They make metaphorical jokes.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    I love it.

    I watch Have I Got News For You and was glad to see William Shatner hosting it the other week/month.


    QI too
    and other shows.

    How the hell did I miss that? Do they know what it means that they have Shatnered their discussions?

    The Graham Norton Show is definitely my guilty pleasure. I don't really care for celebrity talk, but I just find him hilarious.

    Benny Hill is good if non-politically-correct double-entendre sexual innuendo and skimpily clad young women are your thing. Dead now, but DVDs available from Amazon.

    I don't even know what that means so I doubt they do; I'm kidding!
