Good shout on The Inbetweeners, it's far funnier than at least 90% of that list, especially the first couple of seasons. I've always felt sorry for people who never found it funny, unless there's a big age gap it's likely you just have shite craic.

There's so much nostalgia with shit like this though and it's hard to directly compare polar opposite comedies.

Castle Duckula.
Dinnerladies is just complete shite. It doesn't even compare to the trash old school Brit sitcoms from the 70s and 80s.

The thing that always annoys the fuck out of me with sitcoms is the insistence of including a laugh track.

That said I like -

Only Fools and Horses(early series)
The Young Ones
Bottom
Red Dwarf
My Family(early series)
Royle Family(not the Christmas ones which came later)
Not Going Out(early series before Tim Vine left)
Two and a Half Men(again early series, there's a pattern here)
The Office(UK)
Mr Bean
Blackadder
Thin Blue Line(just because I fancied Mina Anwar)
