I've discovered a series on Hulu that has me actually laughing out loud.  It's called "Jeeves & Wooster", is based on the stories of P.G. Wodehouse and stars a very young Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.  It reminds me of the old 1930/40's movies with Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn or Myrna Loy.  As a bonus, several of the episodes has music by Hugh Laurie and others.

I like Keeping up appearances and the Vicar of Dibley, To the Manor born, but the very best of all is Doc Martin

My absolute favorite British comedies are "Are You Being Served" and "The Viccor of Dibley".  I wish I could get them on PBS again.  The characters are great and extremely funny.

Many of the programs I loved are no longer on the tube but one of my faves is As Time Goes By as for a close runner up of the newbies it would have to be Vicious!

Many of the shows that I loved are no longer on the tube but for now I must say that  As Time Goes By is my favorite of the oldies but Vicious is a close runner up!

Top Gear is very funny and I could not care less about cars. Do no let the cars deter your giving the show a watch.

Do not much like Atkinson. Keeping Up Appearances, and Doc Martin are ok, but my favorites are: Good Neighbors (aka The Good Life), To the Manor Born, Mapp and Lucia, Yes Minister and the sequel Yes Prime Minister, One Foot in the Grave, Waiting for God, As Time Goes By, Chef, and a few others that are not coming to mind. I love such Brit Coms.
