Anyone ever see "Yes Minister" or "Yes Prime Minister" ?

I couldn't stop laughing...

I've never seen it.

I hate British comedies :-P (with the exception of Monte Python)

I can't understand what they're saying, and when I do I still don't understand :-?

Where's the humor? :-/

I'm with you on that. Monty Python was good since the accent was toned way down. Other than the only ones I ever really watched was Mr. Bean ( no talking really at all) and Benny Hill (perfect for my 4th grade humor when I watched it the most).

I've seen very, very few British comedies.

Most of the time I feel like they killed some of my brain cells after viewing that programming. !+)

My mom puts Keeping up Appearances on sometimes (I hate the show) and there's another one called "Are You Being Served". I don't watch them.........they're just not funny. Can't beat Mr. Bean though.

I spent some time in Britain so I understand their funny accent... If you can ever get your hands on the first volume of Yes Minister! I suggest you watch the first episode. The accent isn't bad at all and the humor is really good. Also, black adder :) :) :) :D

Are You Being Served ;-D Pretty good show.

Didn't like it at first, but the more I watched it the more I grew to like it. (still not one of my favorite shows, but if it's on, I'll catch a few minutes of it)
