Shameless was on British TV from 2004-13. (I watched it on BBCAmerica)

Showtime version has been running since Jan 2011 and is on going

Many people would not consider it as comedy but it did win "Best TV Comedy Drama" at the 2005 British Comedy Awards.

The absolute winner has to be: "Are you being Served".  It took place in a London Department store.  Each actor was unique, from Mr. Humphreys, to Mrs. Slocum, to Captain Peacock, to Mr. Grainger (who could imitate Winston Churchill 100%), to Young Mr. Grace (who was probably ninety), etc. etc.  If you enjoy British humor, like I do, then try to see some episodes.

Judy gets better with age! saw an older series with her real life husband as a shy little gardener-she was quite chubby-the chemistry was still terrific!

John Cleese a fabulous actor! Poor Manuel! don't mind him, he's from Barcelona! He was married to Polly when they wrote that-but Prunella Scales played his wife to perfection!

Prunella was in another beauty Lucinda and Map! hats to die for!
