For the last few weeks, the BBC has been running a nationwide poll to discover the favourite Brit TV sitcom. The result was announced last night, and I think that the list may be a surprise to some Americans: 1. Only Fools and Horses 2. Blackadder 3. Vicar of Dibley 4. Dad's Army 5. Fawlty Towers 6. Yes Minister 7. Porridge 8. Open All Hours 9. The Good Life 10. One Foot in the Grave [Note that we're purely talking about situation comedies here, so sketch shows were excluded. Otherwise, Monty Python, Spitting Image and The Fast Show would possibly have made appearances]. The only really contentious one is 'Vicar of Dibley' which it's safe to say is a love-hate thing (I personally detest every patronising saccharin minute of it). The others should perhaps hold no surprises to Brits, with the exception of The Good Life, which now looks rather dated IMHO. I suspect it's there because just about every heterosexual male who sees it falls in love with Felicity Kendal, who plays one of the lead roles.
