Friends Tim and Daisy, 20-something North Londoners with uncertain futures, must pretend to be a couple to live in the only apartment they can afford.
Very funny sitcom with a bit of a nerdy edge. If you liked Shaun of the Dead/ Hot Fuzz then you'll love this
IMDb Rating: 8.7
Several generations of Blackadders use schemes and razor cunning to face challenges across 4 time periods.
Rowan Atkinson at his best with a fantastic supporting cast. very funny, and not just for history buffs!
IMDb Rating: 7.7
Sitcom about a grown-up Jewish family's weekly traditional meal on a Friday night.
Amusing at worst, rib ticklingly funny at best, which is regularly, if you can handle a certain cringe factor. The cast bounce off each other very well and inadvertently create some interesting situations on top of the stellar banter.
IMDb Rating: 7.3
An American girl, newly arrived in Glasgow, starts up a book group in order to make some new friends. Each week they meet to read and discuss a new book, which always affects or influences each of the group's lives in some way.
This is an interesting one, as it's more a study into character development of a few very different people. The comedy comes from how each of their lives are sad in some different way. No gags or punchlines, but The Book Group still has many laugh out loud moments. P.S not particularly about books. P.P.S has the hound in it.

Bernard Black runs his own bookshop even though he doesn't much like people who buy books and hates having customers.
This bookshop sitcom is very rarely fully planted in reality giving the cast (Bill Bailey and Dylan Moran are great stand up comedians), a stage to fill with quotable dialogue and far-out adventures; one of my favorites on this list.
IMDb Rating: 7.6
Funky hospital-based sketch-comedy-drama type show.
A more surreal version of scrubs without too much relationship nonsense. Worth watching for all the WTF moments, bizzare characters and improbable situations, as well as an actual season plot.
IMDb Rating: 8.4
Sitcom about 3 dysfunctional priests and their housekeeper who live on Craggy Island, not the peaceful and quiet part of Ireland it seems!
Not technically British but still in the same vein as the others on this list.
Many memorable episodes make this a highly re-watchable program as well as all the characters being unique despite the majority of them being Catholic priests. A classic.
IMDb Rating: 7.8
6 students reluctantly sharing a house together at University discover who they really are over the course of Fresher's year.
As a university student living away from home a lot of this was very relatable to me, but even if it's not, Fresh Meat is still a very well written sitcom with standout performances from a relatively unknown cast and a raft of laugh out loud moments with some feels to boot.
IMDb Rating: 7.8
At the other end of the scale we have a university house comedy based on 4 highly dysfunctional students in early 1980's England. The Young Ones plays on various student archetypes to create an enjoyable chemistry that is the icing on the cake to many wild, crazy and surreal plots
IMDb Rating: 8.2
Political comedy based on the various political parties of Blair-era Britain — BUT WAIT: the characters make this by being witty tongue-in-cheek caricatures of real life MPs. Malcolm Tucker is the party's spin doctor who eats up any and all of the hapless politicians using devastatingly witty put downs and inventive swears. Very relevant at a time full of political scandals.
