I was torn on my number 10. Either Porridge or Men Behaving Badly. I went with MBB because I think it had more of a connection with me growing up in the 90s. It's a lads sitcom through and through and the whole show felt like your best mate. Great show.

Shame it only ran for two series but Fawlty Towers is a well loved sitcom for, let's face it, John Cleese's potrayel of the bumbling hotel owner Basil Fawlty. Like a train, we watched Basil from the start to finish, slowly ticking along to an eventual breakdown. It's a masterclass in sitcom making.

My father loved Dad's Army, so I grew up watching this. I still love it today. Just fine actors playing well written characters that interact beautifully on screen and with so much history to dig into for episode content, it never gets old or boring. I love it.

A great comedy creation. Alan Partridge is so blatant it's cringe-worthly funny. He know what he likes, he knows what he wants and he'll tell you if you're not just that. His image comes first leading to awkward situations where he tries to back out and ends up digging many holes. Just pure creative genius.
