I was raised on 'Dad's Army' as a kid and will get around to seeing this new movie version at some stage.
I absolutely love British comedy and as well as all those already listed, 'It Ain't Half Hot Mum" was great also but I'm also a HUGE fan of the Marx Brothers movies and the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby 'Road To' movies. Classic stuff  ;D ;D

David...."It ain't 'alf 'ot mum!" has unfortunately fallen foul of the PC police because of it's gay jokes and attitudes towards the "natives"....thus it's no longer repeated on British tv. However, it can still be bought on DVD ( I have a box-set myself!)

But there's always YouTube.....!   ;)

I forgot about it ain't half hot mum.
Not long since watched the box set myself. Very funny but as Ian said, far to un-politically correct for today's TV.

Yes, the PC police are everywhere :(
Although I caught an episode of 'Love Thy Neighbour' a while back and that is one series that has certainly passed its used by date in this day and age.

I've been watching the show constantly... Love it.  Saw the one the other day where Jones got a taste of his usual medicine when the mechanical clock tower's knight kept jabbing him...

On the note of Jones, can any of you British-savvy folks read his ribbons?

There you go!  I looked into these characters and somehow missed that.  I always liked the challenge of learning the depth behind a lot of aspects of British Humor, this certainly adds a martial dimension to it!
