Yohann,

Thats because all the ones in Graham's list were made in the UK!!!

I'm sure you have re-runs of Eastenders, and Monty Python in the states?

Mind you we do get most/ some of the USA series...

My list:
Friends
The simpsons
The Office
...

"i think series are getting better and better with the time ever since HBO launched its quality shows"

. . . majority of these are pre-HBO . . they range from the 50s to now . . HBO? There was life before HBO . . and maybe just maybe the Directors and Writers of HBO had been influenced by these . . oldies . .

Peace & Love

Grazie

Old series that are better than some on the list.

Even allowing that aesthetics change over time... and some of the new series will seem "quaint' in their stylistic approach before too long.

I submit MASH and ALL IN THE FAMILY

Groundbreaking, great writing, cutting edge and still worth watching.

Yohann, when you finally get to see The Office, I'd really like to hear what you think of it . . truly! It's a "managment" thing - yeah?

MASH!

I had almost forgot; and yes, Bunker was classic. Here's one:

Electra Woman and Dyna Girl!

LOL

Or anything in the Syd and Marty Croft lineup!


Alright, I was 6.

OT: between Quisp and Quake, I always thought Quisp was better. Better shwag offers, too. Waited weeks for the high-flying-UFO-on-a-parachute deal but it was worth it.
