What are some of your favorite British sitcoms?

I've been crazy about The IT Crowd lately after not watching it for a couple years.

Not all are sitcoms, so I'm generalizing with just 'comedies:'

The Thick of It
Peep Show
Green Wing
That Mitchell and Webb Look
Bruiser
Nighty Night
Pulling
Extras
Coupling
Spaced
Psychoville
Inbetweeners
The Office
I'm Alan Partridge
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace
Blackadder
Saxondale
Snuff Box
Mighty Boosh

Holy wow, there's so many I enjoy.

My mom always watches Keeping Up Appearances. It's British. And a sitcom.

Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. Also, not the correct thread for it since it's Australian, but I checked out some of Review with Myles Barlow (it's getting adapted over here in the US and Andy Daly will be the star of it) and it was really funny.

The only one I really watched in depth was The Office. Looking to watch The Inbetweeners, Extras and Peep Show.

Yes. Mr. Bean is one of my favorites, I used to watch it with my dad when I was probably like 7.

Also, though they're not sitcoms at all, these need always be mentioned in discussions of UK comedy:

QI
Would I Lie To You?
Never Mind The Buzzcocks
Mock The Week
8 Out of 10 Cats
The Big Fat Quizzes

Mock The Week is probably one of my favourite shows ever. I like to call seasons 3-6 the "golden era" of that show, I miss Frankie and Russell.
NMTB is great too, though I haven't watched it in a while. I find some of the hosts are just awful, I wish Simon Amstell was still doing it.
