One Foot in the Grave is the best long running (Early 1990 - Late 2000) British sitcom since it isn't just hilariously funny but well acted and has plenty of heart ripping moments.

Amen for posting this. I adore all things from this extended group of people:

Filthy, Rich & Catflap
Bottom
Absolutely Fabulous
Girls On Top
The Comic Strip Presents...
Blackadder

The Life and Times of Vivienne Vyle
Jam & Jerusalem
The Vicar of Dibley

As for sitcoms (although some loosely on that term) here's some unmissable ones, some mentioned, most not:

Spaced
Black Books
Peep Show
Father Ted
Fresh Meat
Brasseye
Blackadder
15 Storeys High
The IT Crowd
The League Of Gentlemen
I'm Alan Partridge
Mid Morning Matters with Alan Partridge
Stella Street
Fawlty Towers
The Inbetweeners
The Office
Extras

Then, because we produce some of the greatest and are equally as funny, panel shows and sketch shows (although the latter are tired now and never work when new ones arise, but the classics are fantastic and clever):

Panel Shows:
QI
Never Mind The Buzzcocks
Would I Lie To You?
Room 101
8 out of 10 Cats
Big Fat Quiz of the...

Sketch Shows:
A Little Bit of Fry & Laurie
Monty Python
The Fast Show
Harry Enfield and Chums

The Mighty Boosh, and I don't care if it's not a sitcom. I just want to talk about it.

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

Came to this thread specifically looking for people mentioning that show, haha.

Peep Show is probably my favourite show of all time as of the most recent episodes. Shouts to Red Dwarf seeing as it doesn't seem to have been mentioned yet.

Not a sitcom but in terms of British comedy, The Day Today is outstanding.
