    It's a BBC drama series, which has only a very indirect connection to the late Joe Dassin.

    Our comedy is some of the finest in the world (Hugh Laurie & Stephen Fry; David Mitchell & Robert Webb are two double acts which I enjoy, among others), but the soap opera programs let us down.

    Didn't you also have "Yes, Prime minister", "Faulty towers" and Benny Hill?

    ... and "My family", about that dentist, living with his wife, son, daughter and another guy just being there...

    British comedy is an acquired taste for most of us Americans I think. I experienced it at an early age so I get it, but if I try to watch it anyone else, I'm the only one laughing.

    Everyone who saw "Keeping up Appearances" and knew my mother in law said, "That's Doris!" Finishing School finished her off for the real world!

    Oh yes!

    Flying circus.
    Holy grail.
    Meaning of Life.

    and of course Life of Brian. I think this was banned in Norway for many years...

    Life of Brian is the best. You can't ban it just because it parodies Christianity... It was briefly banned in part of the UK, though.
