So what were the best new Britcoms this year?

Always could go for more recommendations, just wondering what came out this year that people liked.

Hope everyone has a great holiday season!

I like the new Jennifer Saunders one, Jam and Jerusalem. Quietly funny...

Green Wing doesn't count I suppose, with it being the second series? :wink:

I can't for the life of me think which ones were new this year?

Can anyone name some so I can decide if I liked 'em?

Was the IT crowd out this year? If so, that was quite good.

Were there any 'good/great' new British comedies this year?

I'm not best informed as I only have terrestrial channels... maybe BBC3 had something? :?

Only having five channels doesn't make me best qualified to comment... I think I should maybe slope off quietly... :P

Oh yes it does *drags you back in* You have channel 4 and BBC2 which provides pretty much the best comedy around for a start. BBC Three is chav town with their endless repeats of 2 pints of lager and a packet of crisps

What should I have been watching, then? :) New (ie 2006) stuff, remember...

No trailer I ever saw made me want to watch anything in particular this year...

This (rather fantabulous) site tells us the 2006 sitcoms -
http://www.sitcom.co.uk/list_years.shtml

I can't belieeeeeve Hyperdrive was 2006!
I also loved Not going Out, and liked Lead Balloon, The IT Crowd, Saxondale, and now and again Suburban Shootout. (Mainly the Emma Kennedy bits).

I only liked Mitchell and Webb, and some parts of Jam and Jerusalem. Probably for obvious man fancying reasons.
Hello my darling it's me again. Where are you?

It could get funnier if we keep doing it.

Man fancying reasons is vital for loving a comedy.

I'd say my NEW comedy of this year would be Snuff Box.
